Myers, Madge Louise's Guestbook

Madge will always be an example selflessness and gratitude. I've never known someone so steadfast and caring, and I will always look up to her. I will miss her, but not in sadness: she is in my mind an icon of living a fulfilling life. Love you, Madge, rest easy.

Dear Madge, I love you and am so grateful to have had you in my life. You were a great inspiration on what it means to work hard and take pride in accomplishments. You gave me my first Dubonnet. I hope to see you and dad and grandma again one day. Love, Janet

Janet Ledniczky

Madge was too good for us. Her compassion, clarity of thought, and true moral compass have been an inspiration throughout my life. God willing and the crick don't rise her memory will continue to inspire me for the rest - even if I don't make it to 105. Love you, Madge, you're always in my heart.
