Words cannot do justice to how wonderful Madolyn was. She was an incredibly kind, smart, and genuinely sincere person with a great sense of humor and the ability to seem unfazed by anything. She was a terrific colleague to work with, she was incredibly hardworking and knowledgeable in all aspects of her work. She will be so greatly missed by myself and all who knew her. Love to everyone in the Brooks family and my deepest condolences to the Essary family.
