"Madisen was my spiritual teacher back in the late 60s; and, for a very brief time, she allowed me to teach Basic class in the early 70s, until business called me away.  She also baptized my son.  
I still try to live my life by the Golden, Silver and Iron rules.  She was an amazing person.  Wish I had been there to participate in the memorial services with you.  But, she will always be with me in Spirit.  And I with her."

"As darkness gathers this first July 4th without Madisen, I think on the many Independence Days I accompanied her to spectacular fireworks displays in Idaho, Washington or Oregon. While our earthly explosions continue, it's nice to see Madisen enjoying the celestial lights we can only approximate. With many ooohs and aaahs, I salute you...."

"There are people who leave a mark so deep that they are never forgotten. Madisen was one of those people. Although we know that she has transitioned to a higher realm, we cannot help but feel that a part of our world is gone.
