Our Sincere Condolences
Aunt Madeline was a very special woman and a great Aunt. I will miss her. Love to the family.
I loved this woman’s spunk and felt her love of life. She was an amazing woman who reached her heavenly goal. She will be missed but not forgotten.
To me, the passing of Madeline is the like the end of a book of Polo. She and Paul were absolutely the best that ever happened to Polo, Mo. Madeline and Paul were the optimum of kindness and and sharing and she knew everbody and very up on all of the news in Polo. I know her children will miss her, but will always have fond memories of their mother.
