My memories are of Madalyn and Christopher. Growing up I spent a lot of time at the house in Grazierville. I’m a cousin 12 years younger so Madalyn always with made take care of me and Andora. Her and Christopher would take us for long walks in the woods and tell us about trees and flowers. I remember thinking about how beautiful Madeline was and how handsome Christopher was. What a beautiful couple… So much in love. She will be missed.
