So do not fear, for I am with you
Do not be dismayed, for I am your God
I will strengthen you and help you
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand
Thank you for all of your outpouring of support and love toward our family over these past few days. You have been such a blessing in so many ways.
We would love to have you join with us for a memorial service celebrating Madeleine's life:
Saturday, December 28th at 2:00 pm at Santa Rosa Bible Church (4575 Badger Rd, Santa Rosa).Between now and then, we are trying to collect photographs of Madeleine for her family. Some of you may have pictures of Madeleine that her family has not seen, but would love to have. Perhaps you have pictures from swimming, or swim teaching, or the gym, etc. If so, please email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org as an attachment along with any information about the photo that you have (who is pictured, date, etc). Thank you for your help with this.
The family has established a scholarship fund in Madeleine's name for the Montgomery High School swim team, which was one of Madeleine's passions. (Contributions can be sent to a special account set up for this purpose at the Redwood Credit Union, account #431887.) If desired, contributions can also be made to the Make A Wish Foundation - an organization that was a particular blessing to Madeleine and her family during her fight against cancer.
