Memorial website in the memory of your loved one




The Family of 

'Madison Lee Foell'

 Warmly Welcome 

you to her site.






This memorial website was

created in the memory of our dear loved one,

Madison Lee Foell.

She was born in Omaha Nebraska


July 13, 2005

and became an Angel on

January 23, 2006

We will remember our little angel forever.

She will always be in our hearts, thoughts,

 and in our prayers.








This happy little Angel

Is meant just for you

She'll bring you love and 


In all you choose to do!




"Tomorrow morning,"
the surgeon began,
"I'll open up your heart..."

"You'll find Jesus there,"
the girl interrupted.

The surgeon looked up, annoyed.
"I'll cut your heart open," he continued,
"to see how much damage has been done..."

"But when you open up my heart,
you'll find Jesus in there."
The surgeon looked to the parents, who sat quietly.
"When I see how much damage has been done,
I'll sew your heart and chest back up
and I'll plan what to do next."

"But you'll find Jesus in my heart.
The Bible says He lives there.
The hymns all say He lives there.
You'll find Him in my heart."

The surgeon had had enough.
"I'll tell you what I'll find in your heart.
I'll find damaged muscle, low blood supply, and weakened vessels.
And I'll find out if I can make you well."
"You'll find Jesus there too. He lives there."
The surgeon left.

The surgeon sat in his office,
recording his notes from the surgery,
"...damaged aorta, damaged pulmonary vein,
widespread muscle degeneration.
No hope for transplant, no hope for cure.
Therapy: painkillers and bedrest. Prognosis:,"
here he paused, "death within one year."

He stopped the recorder, but there was more to be said.
"Why?" he asked aloud. "Why did You do this?
You've put her here; You've put her in this pain;
and You've cursed her to an early death. Why?"

The Lord answered and said,
"The girl, My lamb, was not meant for your flock for long,
for she is a part of My flock, and will forever be.
Here, in My flock, she will feel no pain,
and will be comforted as you cannot imagine.
Her parents will one day join her here,
and they will know peace,
and My flock will continue to grow."

The surgeon's tears were hot, but his anger was hotter.
"You created that girl, and You created that heart.
She'll be dead in months. Why?"

The Lord answered,
"The girl, My lamb, shall return to My flock,
for she has done her duty:
I did not put My lamb with your flock to lose her,
but to retrieve another lost lamb."

The surgeon wept.

The surgeon sat beside the girl's bed;
the girl's parents sat across from him.

The girl awoke and whispered,
"Did you cut open my heart?"

"Yes," said the surgeon.

"What did you find?" asked the girl.

"I found Jesus there,"
said the surgeon.

  The Angels 

May Angels rest beside your door.
May you hear Their voices sing.
May you feel Their loving care for you.
May you hear Their peace bells ring.

May Angels always care for you
And not let you trip and fall.
May They bear you up on Angel's wings.
May They keep you standing tall.

May They whisper wisdom in your ear.
May They touch you when you need.
May They remove from you each trace of fear.
May They keep you from feeling greed.

May They fill you with their presence.
May They always stand besides you
And make you ever bold.

May They teach you what you need to know
About life here and hereafter.
May They fill you always with their love
And give you the gift of laughter.







"To My Mother" 

I will always love you more than words can say.
You gave me life, watched me grow.
 and never looked away.

Many times I think of you we're never far apart.
Time can only magnify 
the love within my heart.

The memories we cherish distance cannot erase.
I only have to close my eyes 
you're there within my space.

Love has a way of bonding two, uniting them as one,
As though it were intended 
as the earth is to the sun.







I Am Not Alone

Gazing upon the vast horizon
Admiring... Gods glorious sunrise
I held a brand new day
Right before my eyes

Not knowing what awaits me
Or where my path will end
Yet, my Lord is right here by my side
For He is my Guide, my Protector
My always closest Friend

I know with all my heart
I do not walk this path... alone
For every second... with Him I share
In each moment I live and breathe
It is He... that is always standing there

If today I reach a fork of uncertainty
Upon this journey I travel so fair
His loving hands will guide me
With a graciousness beyond compare

When I reach my journeys end
As I gaze toward the skies above
Standing there, I know
I am not alone
For I'll thank Him once again
For all His guidance, love and care
Praising Him for always being there

Brenda Conley 






Thank God for friends who really care
And show you that they do.
By acts of kindness, letters, calls,
You know their love is true.
These kinds of friends will stand by you
When trouble comes your way.
Tho storm clouds gather, friends of worth
Will never turn away.

Thank God for each kind word they speak-
Choice words that heal and bless,
And for the way they comfort you
In loving tenderness.
Thank God for friends who really care
And take the time to pray
To ask that God will meet your needs
And grant you strength each day.

It truly is a miracle
What caring friends can do-
God's hand extended, reaching out
To help both me and you.
I know you're thankful for your friends
Just as I am for mine-
These precious friends whose loving touch
Reflects God's love divine. 


 Little Angel

Oh my dearest, precious little one 

There is nothing I can do or say 

For God has called you to his side 

Receiving your wings on this day. 

I want to hug you so tight 

But this is just not meant to be 

With so many tears in my eyes 

I cannot hardly talk, or see 

Why God, what can be your need? 

That you called my baby away 

Leaving my heart in sorrow 

On this tearfully sad day. 

My Lord, my God far above 

I try to understand 

But it is so very hard here 

For a woman or a man. 

Lord, let them know about us 

And of the love in our heart 

Where they are now, we will come too 

Our love not to lessen or depart .






I am your little angel

and I'm sent from far away

To cheer you up if you are sad

or had a rotten day. 

So when you find a home for me

make sure that it is near,

  For when you to need to talk things out

I can lend an ear.

I'm here to make you smile

when you feel a little blue,

Just look into my eyes

and I'll smile right back at you.

Or when your feeling lonely,

and no one seems to care,

Remember angels do,

and we are everywhere. 

If you are scared and don't feel 


and don't know what to do,

talk to me

and I will get you through.

Now find that special place for me

deep inside your heart,

And I will always be there for you

no matter how far apart.

When I have no one to turn to
And I am feeling kind of low,
When there is no one to talk to
And nowhere I want to go,
I search deep within myself
It is the love inside my heart
That lets me know my Angels are there
Even though we are miles apart.
A smile then appears upon my face
And the sun begins to shine.
I hear a voice, so soft and sweet
Saying, 'Everything will be just fine'
It may seem that I am alone
But I am never by myself at all.
Whenever I need my Angels near
All I have to do is call.
An Angel's love is always true
On that you can depend.
They will always stand behind you
And will always be your friend.
Through darkest hours and brightest days
Our Angel's see us through


When I have no one to turn to

I'll Be There

Daddy please don't  look so sad,  

momma please don't cry.

'Cause I'm in the arms of Jesus and 

He sings me lullabies.

Please, try not to question God, 

don't think He is  unkind.

Don't think He sent me to you, and 

then He changed His mind

You see, I am a special child, and 

I'm needed up above.

I'm the special gift you gave Him, 

the product of your love.

I'll always be there with you, and 

watch the sky at night.

Find the brightest star thats 

gleaming, that's my halo's 

brilliant light.

You'll see me in the morning frost, 

that mists your window pane.

That's me, in the summer showers, 

I'll be dancing in the rain.

When you feel a little breeze, from 

a gentle wind that blows,

That's me, I'll be there, planting 

a kiss on your nose.

When you see a child playing and 

your heart feels a tug,

That's me, I'll be there, giving 

your heart a hug.

So daddy, please don't look so sad, 

and momma don't you cry,

I'm in the arms of Jesus, and He 

sings me lullabies.



Hello, God. . .

Hello, God. I called tonight
To talk a little while...
I need a friend who'll listen
To my anxiety and trial.

You see, I can't quite make it
Through a day just on my own.
I need your love to guide me,
So I'll never feel alone.

I want to ask you please to keep
My family safe and sound.
Come and fill their lives with confidence
For whatever fate they're bound.

Give me faith, Dear God, to face
Each hour throughout the day,
And not to worry over things
I can't change in any way.

I thank you, God, for being home
And listening to my call;
For giving me such good advice
When I stumble and fall.

Your number, God, is the only one
That answers every time.
I never get a busy signal,
Never had to pay a dime.

So thank-you, God, for listening
To my troubles and my sorrow.
Good-night, God. I love You, too.
And I'll call again tomorrow!

We are connected, my child and I, 

by an invisible cord not seen by the eye.

Its not like the cord that connects us at 


This cord can't be seen by any on earth.

This cord does its work right from the 


It binds us together, attached to my heart.

I know that it's there though no one can 


This invisible cord, from my child to me.

The strength of this cord, It's hard to 


It can't be destroyed, It can't be denied.

It's stronger then any cord man could 


It withstands the test, Can hold any 


And though you are gone and you're not 

here with me. 

The cord is still there, but no one can see.

It pulls at my heart, I am bruised, I am 


But this cord is my lifeline, as never 


I'm thankful that God connects us this 


A mother and child... Death can't take it 








Dear Maddy,

In tears we saw you sinking, we watched you fade away, you suffered much in silence, you fought so hard to stay. You faced your task with courage, your spirit did not bend, but still you kept on fighting, until the very end. God saw you getting tired, when a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around you, and whispered, "Come with Me". It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, for part of us went with you, the day God called you home.

We love you and will see you soon ... your loving family. 






Dear Family ...

I am home in Heaven, dear ones; Oh, so happy and so bright! There is a perfect joy and beauty in this everlasting light. All the pain and grief is over, Ever restless tossing passed; I am now at peace forever, Safely home in Heaven at last. Did you wonder I so calmly Trod the valley of the shade? Oh! But Jesus love illumined. Every dark and fearful glade. And he came Himself to meet me in the way so hard to tread; And with Jesus' arm to lean on, Could I have one doubt or dread? Then you must not grieve so sorely, for I love you dearly still;' Try to look beyond earth's shadows, Pray and trust our Father's Will. There is work still waiting for you, So you must not idly stand; Do it now while life remaineth - You shall rest in Jesus' land. When that work is all completed, He will gently call you Home; Oh the rapture of that meeting, Oh the joy to see you come!

My love to you all ... waiting for you .. Mighty Maddy












You're Precious in His Eyes

Trust God today He's still in charge,

Your life is safe with Him.

To Him your path ahead is bright,

Although to you it's dim.

Just place your trust in Him each day,

Each second and each hour.

Though you are weak and have no strength,

He is a God of power.

He'll lead you and He'll strengthen you

And He'll stay by your side.

Let Him be your everything

And in His peace abide.

There's nothing in your life, my friend,

That takes God by surprise.

He's in control and He loves you--

You're precious in His eyes.
Bob Hefner '98

Bedtime Angels

Angels are watching over us every single day.

They are there when we need them, they never go away.
They watch us when we're sleeping and when we're wide awake.

They're there for every single , breath of air we take.

They help us find the words we need as we say our prayers.

You'll feel their Angelic presence and forget about your cares.

They lay right down beside us as we fall asleep.

They protect us from all harm and our souls they carefully keep.

They hold us in their loving arms oh so very tight.

They give us an Angel kiss as they softly whisper,
" Good Night."

I'm sending you this Angel

To keep you safe and warm

Just tuck her in your pocket

She'll keep you safe from harm.

Poems Written to remember Madison and to keep going on knowing she in a safe place with God!  
God strolls among the heavens,
and together, down they look.
The little one looks mystified,
while the Lord writes in his book.
My child, have you chosen?
Which ones shall it be?
Give much consideration...
When you choose your family.
I looked around the whole wide world,
Till my eyes found your sweet face,
I knew you were my mommy,
I knew I'd found my place.
Jesus sat beside me then,
his eyes so kind and warm,
Are you ready now, my precious one,
To take on human form?
Challenges await you child,
a race that's yet to run,
but your life shall teach others,
when all is said and done.
At times you'll see your mommy weep,
You'll see her ask me, "Why"?
But children bring the heart a smile,
when the soul just longs to cry.
Now go my child, and teach them faith,
and should I bring you home...
remind your dad and mommy that...
"They'll never walk alone".

This one just speaks to MM's journey too..

Welcome Home

Each of us is given
Precious time to spend on earth,
But we know the journey leads us
To a home of greater worth.
Sometimes the Father takes us
Down a path not of our choice,
But when it leads to heaven,
How our hearts and souls rejoice!
And earthly cares all vanish
When at last we hear God say,
“Welcome home, My precious child,
I led you all the way.”
