    My sympathy to Madison and Dan.
    She was one very special lady. Had a heart of gold and was there if you needed anything. We did a lot of joking around and will miss those times. She made us some lovely shirts tee shirts when Bev was recovering with her cancer. Was one of a kind and will be greatly missed. Our memories will be with us forever. 🤗🥰🙏 .
