Harold, Debbie, Robbie, Mark and Tina - So very sorry for your loss. With sympathy and much love to you all, Lisa and Jim

To My Aunt Madelyn, I have the best memories of you!!! Staying at your house, camping in the backyard with Tina, you trying to teach me to dance, driving the orange convertible while singing at the top of your lungs, but especially your encouragement to my mom and I for my diabetes, and then to Jim and I when we married. You were so full of laughter and love. I will miss you and love you always. Lisa and Jim

Our deepest sympathy to the family. The Bailey kids and the Conrad kids played together.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It's a pain that never goes away but at least they're free of pain and carefree again! They're always watching over all of us too!
