She was such a wonderful, beautiful, special Aunt. I always loved going to the house on 8th Street as a kid and spending time with her. I loved the sweaters she knitted for me and wish I still had them. They were so warm and comfy, felt like her arms wrapped around me in a hug every time I wore them. Heaven gained a beautiful angel today and we will be together again someday. Our love and prayers for you all. Sena Lofgreen Bryant and Family

My condolences to Madges family and friends. She was a sweet and loving person. I am so sorry for your loss. I have such wonderful memories of Madge, Lorin, Granger and Zarina visiting Will and me in Linden a few times. Those were very enjoyable visits. We always looked forward to seeing her at the reunions too and giving her a big hug. I am sure Will gave her a big hug today. :heart::heart::heart:
