Mrs. McFadden's son James and daughter Mona were two of my favorite neighbors in St.Louis. I am sure that their caring ways are a reflection of her. I remember when she received her hearing procedure and the joy that surrounded. My condolences to the family.

I enjoyed seeing she and Julian attend the Doniphan Chicks. Julian, you're never alone. He's always there with you because He loves you. Praying for the Holy Spirit's comfort through out the services and for God's leading, comforting hand to be upon you.
