    My deepest sympathy and prayers are with the entire family. “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord” I know Jesus said ,Welcome home Madeline you have finished your course, you have kept the faith. Enter into your rest. When Madeline took her last breath on earth she took her first breath in heaven ALL healed ,ALL whole no more pain, no more suffering . Just imagine walking hand in hand, looking at Jesus face to face on those streets of gold .Awesome!
    I know you will miss her and there will be some lonely times and days ahead, but hold on to all those beautiful memories you made and had with her. No one can take those from you. Keep close to Jesus. He loves you most. Delight yourself in the Lord He will give you the desires of your heart.
    “ Because HE LIVES- we live”
    With lots of sympathy, love, prayers and a good warm hug.

    So sorry to hear of Madeline’s passing. Our paths crossed many times through the years. My favorite memory is that she made a three tier cake for our 25th anniversary and each layer was a different flavor. She was very creative. Sending prayers for comfort and strength to get through this difficulty time. May God bless you all.

    Ms. Hall was an earthly angel. I first met her at the Drakes Branch Farmer’s Market I fell in love with her then. Her love for people is unmatchable, she kept the same demeanor at all time. Later I had the pleasure of being an aide for her, OH WHAT A JOY THAT WAS! The family was just like her loving. I enjoyed each day that I seen her. She was one of my elder the bible talked about. We talked a lot about the Bible, we prayed together and I learned a lot about being a Christian from hear. Her passing brought hurt to my heart. To the family keep your head high because your mother instilled good quality in you all to carry on after her passing. Prayers of comfort to you for the days ahead. Love Madeline Hall and family.

    Madeline was the epitome of a true Southern Lady. She was a great inspiration and role model to many. I remember her fondly as my Girl Scout leader, a school room mother for Drakes
    Branch Elementary, her involvement in the community and a core member of Lebanon. She has earned her Heavenly rest.

    Mrs Hall was such a kind and gentle soul. We attended Church together and did Bible study together. Such a Godly woman. I pray for the family that God comforts you all during this time.

    Such a sweet, kind woman …spirited but reserved . She served God thru her service to others. I loved her sweet laugh. I can truly say that I never heard her speak of anyone in a negative manner. A special lady that I will miss.
