Madelyn Alyse said goodbye to her first tooth on Wednesday, July 20, 2011 at approximately 6:15pm. All of Madelyn's family was with the tooth in its final moments. Although the family originally wanted the tooth to slip away in its own time, the tooth was euthanized in hopes of easing its pain. The tooth has since been donated to science, and Madelyn has been remunerated for her generous donation. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that everyone eat a piece of candy in memory of this sweet tooth.
