  2. Dear Lyle and family of Madaline Maston,
    Rest in peace Madaline! Thank you for all that you did over the years for me and my family. You were a second mother to me and a grandmother to the kids from the day they were born. We have been through a lot over the years and now it is time for you to rest. Even though we lived so far apart the last few years, you were in my heart. God be with you Lyle at this time and give you strength to bear this loss and may His love impart the peace and understanding that brings comfort to you and the family at this time of sorrow. Love and Peace, Nancy

  5. Maddie will be missed for sure!! She was like a second Mother to me and to my husband Jim. We tried to keep in touch over all these years even if just for a few minutes. Maddie and Jack got to come to Courtney’s wedding which meant so much to our family. Our hearts go out to the family and know that she is up there with Jack and my mom and dad having a great time together!!!
    Much love to Lyle and all the family.

  11. Dear Lyle and family, Wouldn’t your mom be so happy to know that her departure from this earth to her heavenly home was a special day of “twos” 2-22-22. She always knew how to share sunshine in the most delightful ways. I have so many wonderful memories of your Mom & Dad’s visits to West Virginia when they spent time with John & Kate. I well remember Charlotte, Judy, Donna and you too. Both your parents were always smiling…always having fun when we were all together as family. I stayed in touch with your Mom even after my divorce from Nick and after I remarried. Her return letters to me were filled with love and shared sweet memories. I will remember both your parents and your sisters always. I only wish I could attend the Celebration to honor her. Please know that I will be with all of you in my heart, my prayers, and my thoughts on that day.
