Madeline Alice Spohr
November 11, 2007 – April 7, 2009
Sweet, beautiful Maddie passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, April 7th, 2009. The outpouring of love from around the country, and the world, has been overwhelming. Thank you, so much, to everyone who’s offered love, support, well wishes, prayers, comfort and every other form of encouragement to Maddie’s family. She was an amazing little girl who will be missed by thousands of people, many of whom had never even met her in person.
A service in celebration of Maddie’s life was held at 2:30pm on Tuesday, April 14th, 2009. Family and friends from around the country packed the Old North Chapel at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Hollywood Hills. For more information on the site, go here. Heather and Mike asked that everyone wear purple in honor of Maddie. It was amazing to see the sea of purple that filled the chapel.
Donations For Maddie’s service and/or reception have been received from:
Team March for Maddie:
If you are in the Los Angeles area, or want to be in the area for the event, the March for Babies Team Maddie walk is Saturday, April 25th. Visit the March for Maddie team site for more information or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
T-shirts for the LA walk will be available Saturday morning. We are asking that you pay $20 per shirt, payable to the Paypal account. Please make a note when you make your payment that it’s for t-shirts and be sure to note what sizes you’d like. It’s first come, first serve, so if I run out of a particular size, I’ll have to bump you up a size. Thanks. Email me with questions meghan(@)amomtwoboys(.)com.

It is at a UPS Store, so they can accept packages as well.
Maddie’s Monster, designed by Mike and Heather in Maddie’s memory, are now available for purchase from Curly Q Cuties. Purple in honor of Madeline, with eyes as big and blue as hers, these plush dolls are sure to warm your heart. Proceeds from the sales of Maddie’s Monster will go to the March of Dimes.
The code for the button is available here if you’d like to add one to your site.
A PayPal Account has been set up to assist Heather and Mike with any upcoming expenses. You can donate by clicking the link below. All money received will go directly to them to be used at their discretion. Service and Reception costs are adding up, so anything you can contribute will help. Also, Heather was a Stay at Home Mom, and Mike is an independent contractor, so while he’s not working they don’t have any income coming in. The longer he’s able to stay home and grieve, the better. Again, whatever you can contribute will help. Thank you.
