  1. What a beautiful soul both inside and out! She will be missed. Our condolences to the family as you grieve this great loss. Much love to all of you.

  2. I became acquainted with Madame Moody on her visits to our French classes at Saint Mary of the Plains College in Dodge City in the 1970s. And then, over the years, I would see her occasionally when she visited the Dodge City Public Library where I have worked for many years. Madeleine was one of those people whom you remember. She was a beautiful lady and a wonderful soul who spread the “joie de vivre” wherever she went. How happy I am to have this lovely person. May she now know joy unending reunited with her departed loved ones. Adieu, Chere Madame Moody.
