    I am so sorry for your loss. Maddi was such a happy go lucky girl. She used to love it when we brought Maya over, and always wanted to hold her. She will be missed and never forgotten, but always loved. My heart breaks for the family, and we will always be here for you for forever you may need. Sorry we will not be able to attend, just know we are there in spirit.
