    Steve, Linda and Sam

    We are so sorry about the loss of Madison after a courageous fight against cancer. In the time we spent with Maddie she amazed us with her inner strength, spirit and courage. She truly was a hero and an inspiration to all who had been blessed with the opportunity to know her.

    We cannot even begin to understand the loss you are feeling, but we will be here to support you however we can
    through this difficult time as well as the days, months and years that follow.

    You are in our thoughts and our prayers and we are a phone call away for anything you need day or night.

    Mike and Dawn Peta & family
