    I am further saddened that we will be unable to attend her memorial and share in remembering her life. But we are in Florida and Patti’s dad is in the hospital.

    When we get home to Texas we plan to create a memorial area at Madell’s Meadow in her honor. Once we do that we plan to have a small gathering in her memory for anyone who would like to attend. Patti will put it on the Facebook page for the meadow.

    Know that we are there in spirit and grieving with you.
