Maddi, You are always missed here in this world. Still the love that you and your Mom & Dad and your sister shared continues and hopefully they can remember all the beautiful things between you. And maybe you can help them in this way to smile and be happy.

Maddi, Your Mom & I talked about the how exciting it was for her just prior to you being born. Maria and I were also celebrating the upcoming birth of our soon to be born son, Joe. You are about the same age as him. Such promise for both of you. I know you are now one of those very bright lights in the night sky, forever shining a positive spirit to us all. We will miss you, until next time.
