My beloved Madeline
Madeline ... God needed you in heaven. He needed an Angel with such wonderful experience of life and love on Earth.
He needed an Angel who loved and was loved very much, an Angel who was musical talented ( with preference for accordion, piano and the organ), cheerful and, witty. An Angel who knew how to cope with difficult life situations.
God needs you Madeline.
He is not leaving us with empty house. He is leaving us with great memories about you Madeline. He took you but he left you with our hearts forever full of the joy and love you brought us and our lesson to Pray, work hard but also take a break for the good of your soul and above all to celebrate life and have fun.
It was God wish that you live the Earth and then go to Heaven
My lovely Madeline I will miss your smile and your great life stories.
Perpetual light will shine on you forever and ever.
With true love

To George and Louise and the entire Patenaude family,
We want to extend our deepest sympathy to you all. Madeline was one of a kind. WE will truly treasure her company and conversation which we were privileged to enjoy at your home and at your camp in Moosehead. We so looked forward to happy hour, knowing Madeline would be sharing life stories which were filled with wisdom, lots of laughter and at times renewed displeasure in recalling some of these memories she so eagerly shared, which added to all the fun. She was proud of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and spoke highly of you all. She will be missed and remembered as we raise our glass in honor of your mother who lived her life in selfless love and care of her family. She will be in our prayers, as will all of you during this very difficult time
Love, Harry & Pauline McKenney
