Dennis, I'm so sorry words can't say enough
I am so sorry for your loss of an amazing woman. She worked with Dr Barnhill and myself when we were at the hospital. She always made sure we had what we needed and took excellent care of the OR staff as well as the patient. I have many fond memories of Madelaine. She will be greatly missed.
Love and prayers from Ozark Family Clinic.
Jennifer & Family-  Your Mom gave me so much strength when my husband John was ill- She was such a blessing to John as you were- I am so sorry for your loss- words cannot remove your sadness - but remember one thing- Heaven is a much brighter place- through your pain and suffering. You and all your family are in my prayers.
Madelaine was there when I first got to Springfield. She was always there for me when I had ups and downs and needed an experienced hand in the OR. She will and is missed. Dr. Joel Waxman
