Madelynn Marie Walsh

August 30, 2007 — August 22, 2022

Madelynn was so excited to be here. She came five weeks early on August 30, 2007. This was the start of a challenging short life. After two weeks in the NICU she was sent home. Over the next couple of years there were multiple hospitals, surgeries and struggles but she always handled everything with a smile. A smile that infected everyone around her. She touched so many people who admired her strength and courage. She loved art and painting with a twist. She liked Girl Scouts and going to camp. Se loved animals especially hers. Madelynn always looked forward to her summers to see her mom Heather and brother Elias. She was a fish out of water as a kid and grew into a "too cool" teenager that loved anime, to draw and roll her eyes at dad. At age 10 "Cricket" came out as being in the LGBTQ community. They embraced the love and support that they received and didn't get mad if you forgot to use the right pro noun or name. They would just give you a look. As their medical struggles continued so did their determination not to let it get them down. We went to pride events that grew a smile I've never seen before. Right now thinking about those smiles hurts but in time they will become precious memories. For being on this planet for such a short time they leave a legacy of kindness with so many people, caring and love forever. In the end they are no longer suffering and finally at peace. In lieu of flowers please donate to LGBTQ, kidney or animal charities in their honor.
