I share the grief felt by her husband and family. This disease is unforgiving, having also lost my mother to it. Reading the story showed me the compassion and love that can exist between two people especially in times of sadness. I admire that.

I feel so privileged to have read the love story of Madeleine and Clancy, a love that goes beyond earthly confines. They are so blessed to have found each other and will be together for eternity, I firmly believe. Thank you Clancy for sending me your book.

Very often, when there's something great my husband has made, after he brags a lot, I find out that he has been sneaking behind & checking Madeleine's site. :) Thank you! God Bless Her, and whoever keeps this site on. Clancy, you have our prayers, too.

I have known Madeleine and witnessed how devoted she was for her loving husband, I do see he is suffering without Madeleine and his grieving process must be very very sad and difficult to accept but ,at the same time he kept on living just for his undying love for Madeleine.

For many years had I always admired the recipes and love for Maurice that I would see on Madeleine's recipe site reminding me of my maman cherie. For some reason I had not checked the site in quite a while - perhaps with my voyages over the world, but I came back last night and to my chagrin found out that she had lost her battle with cancer. For some reason, when a person of mauritian descent learns of another mauritian's passing, we take it as if it's like our close family much moreso than I do to my English side. After all, for such a small but tightly knit island, we are all just one big family there.

Thank you for keeping this memorial and her website going all this time. God bless.

May I send you my deepest condolences for your lost. On reading your life and love story I am happy that you had these good times with your dearest wife. I don't know you personally but your story touched me deeply. I wish you well and will remember you in my prayers.
God always call on those who are the closest to him. Madeleine will always be with you that I know for sure. Wishing you well.

Dear Clancy:

Your story brought tears to my eyes, and tears are still streaming from my eyes as I write this message to you. First off, I would like to express my deepest, heartfelt sympathy to you and your family for the passing of Madeleine.
However, I do not feel that you have lost her at all. She's very much around you because the two of you are Soul Mates--thus, you are inseperable throughout eternity.
I'm not sure what I can really say to ease your pain (even a little); but from what I understand about Soul Mates is that only a very small percentage of people ever get to meet and/or marry their Soul Mate. You and Madeleine beat the odds by not only meeting and marrying each other--but also sharing many blissful years together. Please understand that this is a divine gift and blessing from God.
The two of you shared a very rare love--unconditional love. Somehow, God felt that the two of you were deserving of this wonderful gift and blessing. So please try to see it for what it is. So many people go through life not finding their own souls; let alone their Soul Mate. They live their lives on auto pilot and with blinders on.
I believe that Madeleine is very much with you and watching over you right now. Your souls are still entwined and always will be.
My hope is that you will share your beautiful love story with the world, because if there's one thing we all need to learn is 'unconditional love' and service to one another. Please tell the world what a real relationship and marriage is all about so humanity can raise its consciousness. And don't worry about getting writer's block--Madeleine will help you with this. I think it will not only help to keep her beautiful memory alive, but it will further remind you that, although her physical body is no longer with us, her soul is very much alive.
I am looking forward to purchasing a copy of this book should you ever decide to write it. I also look forward to someday meeting and marrying my own Soul Mate.
May God bless you and your family--and may God bless Madeleine.

Sincerely,
Elizabeth Ducasse

My dear friend Clancy,
I am also doing a small rubric for Madeleine's recipes on the printed newspaper.

Below is a small introduction that I have made

Madeleine’s recipes from Mauritius
Mauritius Weekly will provide you the best Mauritian recipes compiled by Madeleine Philippe (1938-2011). This rubric has been created to honour the memory of this great lady who devoted more than 20 years of her life to the promotion of the Mauritian cuisine worldwide via her
website http://ile-maurice.tripod.com.
Madeleine Philippe and her husband Clancy, who settled in settled in Melbourne after spending 12 years in country Victoria, started this website in 1994, when they saw the potential of the Internet as a medium to promote Mauritius. They created a website to build up a network for Mauritians scattered worldwide. And, after receiving numerous requests for Mauritian recipes, they created http://ile-maurice.tripod.com which is, today, one of the most visited Mauritian websites on the World Wide Web.

Please give me your feedbacks. I will also put a small picture of Madeleine on the left column.

Kind regards

I am half Mauritian and always wanted to cook Mauritian food for my mother who came to England in the early 1970's. I have had Madeleine's recipes in my bookmarks for a long while and would frequently look at them until I had to go to uni in 2011. I only just saw the bookmark now and when I got onto the website I was so incredibly sad to see Madeleine had passed.

My own Mauritian grandfather passed away in 2011 with cancer too, so I can defintely relate. I am so sorry for the loss, please believe that she has been a huge inspiration to those of us who wanted to learn how to cook Mauritian food.

She will definitely be missed.

Hello

I am just writing a quick note to sympathise with your great loss.

I am a British born Mauritian , living in Ascot, Berkshire, England. I have often looked up Mauritian recipes on this website and have not done so for a long time. I was very sad to read of your loss, but wanted you to know that these numerous recipes, encourage me to try cooking new things and it's such a lovely and well written website.

I hope you find some comfort in knowing how your lovely wife's knowledge lives on and still gives great pleasure to many people. Especially my elderly Mauritian parents who are amazed at their British born, daughters cooking abilities.

Take good care.

It has now been one year since you went missing from my life. I now realise how much your ever smiling face made me a very happy person. It gave me no reason to c...omplain about absolutely anything. Your smile has been permanently etched into my being. When I get sad, all I need to do is to see your smile again and I am happy again.

Some people call it Madeleine’s Eternal Smile. That smile has enriched those who received it. The memory of your smile will last forever. None are so rich that they can get along without it and none so poor but are richer for its benefits.

It has and still creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill within the family and is the countersign of friends. It has provided rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and nature's best antidote for trouble.

More than that, your smile still brings happiness to people worldwide through the medium that crosses path with the Angels. Many thousands everyday will contemplate your smile and feel somewhat better in themselves. May be for the delicious meals they are about to receive, but also for the love that is very much of what made you the person that you were.

These days, you are with the Angels and I will bet that your smile will bring happiness to many of us who are blessed with the privilege of your visits and blessings. Your smile will keep me and your loved ones going until we are all together again.
For, nobody needs a smile so much as those who have none to give.

I am currently in Madeleine's hospital room watching her slowly fade away. She has lost the will to fight and slipping away fast. The doctor has advised that it is only a matter of time. Am just devastated to find that such a lovely and caring human being has been almost totally consumed by this dreadful disease. She is now on morphine to ease the pain.
Don't know what more to say. Will keep you posted and give you a call when things settle down. Am seeing the doctor tomorrow re path from here.

Cher M Clancy
Je suis Seychellois né d'un père Mauricien et vis maintenant aux Etats Unis auxquels j'ai émigré une deuxieme fois, la première étant vers l'Afrique du Sud. J'ai découvert vos recettes depuis bien longtemps lors de mes voyages en "affaires" durant les long week-ends, temps morts etc, seul et non-occupés.

J'avais longtemps voulu vous féliciter et remercier de partager si chaleureusement vos recettes, mais ayant négligé de le faire, nous voila maintenant à la situation ou je vous passe toutes mes condoléances pour la perte de votre chêre femme.

Néanmoins, je tiens à vous dire qu'ayant quitté le bercail, à une époque ou je ne pouvais attendre de le faire, je me suis trouvé dans un pays ou mes petits plats me manquaient parfois, même ayant des amis mauriciens et seychellois. Lors d'une visite à la maison, j'ai demandé plusieurs questions à ma grand-mère, alors en vie et bien lucide. Mais alors que tout paraissait facile et clair (ajoute un peu de... Combien?.. ben sais pas, regardes toi-meme tu sauras), ce n'a pas été le cas une fois retourné à l'étranger. Alors, pouvoir avoir référence à vos recettes, et de plus, instructions clairs, j'ai réussi a cuire un peu à la créole ainsi aujourd'hui, mes enfants ne se senteraient pas au dépourvu soit à Maurice, aux Seychelles oû aux Caraïbes.

Merci infiniment pour ce grand cadeau,

I am so sorry for yours and your family’s loss.

My wonderful mother-in-law, Una, passed in April 2011 with such a great impact upon our family. I can only empathise with your great loss; I know our family feels that a large piece of our world is missing; no doubt it’s the same for you.

Thanks to God for giving us Una and Madeleine.

Thanks for taking the time to write when so involved in your own crisis. Have been reading Madeleine’s blog. Please give her my best. I am starting to realise how much of your life is dominated by hospitals and medical appointments. I had heart stress tests yesterday and go back in for a bone scan Friday. All part of the preliminary tests to see if I am even eligible to go on the transplant waiting list.

She clearly has given this world a lot and she is a lady that can provide us with inspiration and hope. Her efforts in the Mauritian community have been excellent and such that many can learn from.

Even though I didn't know Madeleine personally, I can see that she was extremely passionate about cooking, and promoting Mauritian cuisine to the world.

I left Mauritius at a very young age, and at times, I crave quality, genuine Mauritian cuisine. My mum was a fantastic cook too, and now that she's gone, I no longer have the opportunity to eat quality Mauritian food. However, with access to Madeleine's online recipes, I will begin cooking some of my mum's favourite recipes in her remembrance.

May GOD bless and keep you safe, Madeleine.

Thank you for your valuable contribution to the Mauritian community worldwide! What a legacy to leave behind!
Merv Ah-Young (Big fan of her recipes!)

Clancy, it is good to hear from you and for you to share your feelings. Missing a person who you love is right but remembering the good moments is even better. It is really nice to remember that Madeleine would want you to carry on and be as positive as you can. We are together with you albeit through electronic medium. Whenever you feel like telling us something, do so.

On behalf of all those of us who yearn for our mauritian cooking and who live abroad, we thank you,Madeleine for giving us a treasure. I was so excited the day I found your recipes, I told everyone about it, Your recipes brought back memories of my childhood,of my hometown,of my friends and family I left behind, of goodtimes at the bazaar and picnics on the beach. I was surprised by your kindness to me when I asked about what type of vinegar to use,I did not expect a reply, yet you were so gracious and answered, we had a little chat as well and I will never forget this.
Be at peace and cook up a feast for all the angels in heaven,God bless.

Meme, words cannot express how much I miss you everyday of my life. Everyday I wish you were here to guide me and give me advice and then I remember, you will always be here with me every step of the way and although I cannot see you or touch you, I feel you in every way. You have been a big influence in my life and this will never change and the more I read the more I realise you didn't only change my life but hundreds.

You will live forever in the hearts of all the people you have touched.

I love you now and forever.
Till we meet again I hope your watching me every step of the way as you are the wind beneath wings.

Eulogy by Annabelle de Baize on behalf of all grandchildren
On behalf of the younger members of our family I would like to say a few words:
Brandon:
Meme you have loved us all your life and you have cared for us during the good and the worst you will always be in my heart and you will never be forgotten and everyone loves you lots.
Joshua:
Every time we see you, it makes our day. But, we couldn’t bear to see you suffering in so much pain. It hurt. You are in a better place now where nothing can hurt you anymore. We love you always.
Molly:
From the first day I met meme, I could see that she was the most amazing woman on the planet. There are so many good memories that I have and are very sacred. The thing I will never forgot is that you didn’t get to eat my lasagne as she had to go to hospital. Meme, you will be in my heart forever and always. Rest in Peace. I love you.
Jaiden:
We cherished and love you. You left us for a better place. We will greatly miss you Meme. Rest in peace Meme. You will always be in my heart.
On behalf of the older grandchildren I would like to say:
Our Meme was a large influence in our lives. Growing up, we always had strict guidelines that she was certain would turn us into the best people we could be. We had a certain way to dress, eat at the dinner table, speak and present ourselves when out in public. Meme was a classy woman with excellent manners, dinner etiquette and a fabulous fashion sense just to top off her character. With her gorgeous almost black hair and signature red lipstick and nail polish, you just couldn’t miss her coming. Each of us was taught everything she knows. And, if we didn’t listen, well, let’s just leave it as the wooden spoon was never a friend of ours.
Meme always had faith in god and that faith made her always see the best in people. She would help anybody that needed her help and not hesitate. Her generosity and kindness was passed through to many people, worldwide. She taught us that when you help somebody to never ask for anything in return and do it because you want to do it, not because of what you can get out of it.
Her attitude and spice is definitely something we can safely say we all picked up. She was always the first one to tell us exactly how she feels and what she liked or didn’t like. I remember one time when I once sat at the dinner table, the tablecloth completely covered my legs. I had them up on the chair crossed and to this day I still have no idea how she knew they were like that. But since that day, I definitely knew better than do to that around her.
She was full of love, energy and no matter what, she was always there for her family. She was always proud of us and pushing us to become something great when we grew up. She always encouraged our education and told us that there wasn’t anything we couldn’t do. Her family always came first. She was always cooking for us, always cleaning up after our mess even though she wanted to kill us, always being kind and gentle when she needed to be there for us and definitely not scared to teach us a lesson knowing we would be better people for it. She was always proud of everything we accomplished and she was never shy to show it.
She was the heart of our family. She is our hero. We are so thankful for everything she did for us. She is somebody we all want to become. With her in our life and in our hearts, we can achieve anything we set our minds to. She is the wind beneath our wings. Our meme has been there from the moment each of us , to this day and will forever be with us. We love you Meme, we will miss you and wait for the day we can all be reunited as the great family you built.

Eulogy by Clancy Philippe for Madeleine read by Jennifer de Baize
I first laid eyes on you some 37 years ago and was captured by your smile and magnetic personality. That was love at first sight. Three years later, we were married and that was the beginning of the best 34 years of my life. The two of us became one. You always knew how I felt and I always knew how you felt. You spent the rest of your life totally dedicated to me and the family. In return, I made sure that no harm ever came to you.
Five years ago, you were struck with breast cancer. We rallied together we fought hard. You won that first battle and we went on a world tour, during which time you blossomed and was radiant in happiness. These seven weeks were the best time we had together, visiting relatives, friends and places that you told me you had never been to.
Fate was to struck again and you were diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Again we rallied and fought hard. We won, only to be struck again with secondary breast cancer.
That was out last battle together. We fought hard and tough. But your body was tired and gave up the fight. Your mind and spirit still urged you to keep fighting, but you had no fight left in you. You had suffered enough already.
I was helpless and could do nothing to help you. It hurt so bad when you said to me in hospital: “Help me !” and I could do nothing. But you battled on and lost the battle on the morning of 11th February. I have not only lost my darling wife, but also my lifelong best friend.
Half of me is going away, but half of you is staying in me. The happy memories live on and I am the luckiest man alive as you gave me the best 34 years of my life. Thank you for looking after me so well. I was never wanting for anything. Farewell my Louloune and I know that from Paradise, you will still be looking after me and your loved ones. Farewell and take care until we meet again. Most importantly, I will always love you.
I wish to thank the family and friends who cared for Madeleine during these difficult times. I wish to thank Dr Ian Haines and the Cabrini nursing staff who took such great care of Madeleine. Also, a big thank you to the City of Greater Dandenong for their understanding, assistance and help. Thank you all for being present today.

EULOGY Maddy Philippe 17 February 2011-02-16

My dear friends, it is very comforting to see how the community has assembled here today to celebrate the life of Maddy as tributes from here and many countries keep flowing in.
The Press at home were very prompt in offering their respects to a special Lady.

In spite of all the sadness that we feel, the family in particular, let’s remind ourselves that this is no final curtain.
It is a celebration of the life of a much loved member of the community who was so dynamic and contributed so much to the wellbeing of the Mauritian Diaspora. Not only in Australia, Melbourne in particular but in many more countries through the link of the dedicated website maintained by Clancy and accessed by all Mauritians worldwide 24 hours a day permanently.
Accessed also by non-Mauritians who have been introduced to our delicacies by the recipes written or verified and endorsed by Maddy, always respecting the original concepts.
Maddy displayed an incredible resilience in the face of adversity and put on the bravest face whilst enjoying life and the company of her legions of friends in the community. My niece shared a table in the company of Boum and Maddy at a year-end party, and when I gave her the sad news, she did not think it possible. My niece did not know the circumstances and thought that Maddy was the life of the party.
After visiting Melbourne in the seventies and being captivated, the family settled here in the early 80s. Soon the website was created to highlight the marvels that delight our tastebuds. And the world started visiting, tasting and sharing. Daily visits have grown from an early 1500 daily to 4500 on average now. This Monday, 6363 clicked on the site. On the record too, these visitors came from 45 countries and more. That’s an exemple of the friends attracted to the delights that Maddy and Clancy disseminated for our tastebuds.
Her activities although dominated by Mauritian Cuisine,included Writing about Mauritian Cuisine in such high profile publications as the Lonely Planet Travel Guide. Club Activities, Creating cancer awareness among friend and relatives via the Madeleine Philippe Cancer Foundation (Aus) Inc.
On Travel, wherever she went, she would always be discussing cooking techniques with other people during her travels, adding more credits to her experience.
Hobbies were essentially looking after Mr. Boum and the family, children, grand children, daughters in law and unending groups of friends.
The website received many rewards and recognitions. Nowadays it stands proudly as a world leader in its field and an essential connection for the Mauritian Diaspora worldwide. Maddy’s name is a reference in itself.
Clancy will push forward her dream of publishing a book on genuine Mauritian Multicultural Cuisine in a class of its own. Her recipes will be forever present in people’s homes through the magic of the book and the internet. Her recipes and many more that have not been published yet will be forthcoming.
Clancy has made this a priority.

Five years ago unfortunately, illness raised its ugly head, fought with determination and courage. Maddy is leaving as a testament to others the Foundation bearing her name. It will keep going, fully dedicated to helping, comforting others.

Whilst offering our condolences to Clancy and the family, it must be noted that at this moment,
Maddy is busy at work.
All around her, including the big bosses, up there, have big smiles lighting up their faces.
The great news is that the impossible is possible.
Up there,

THE MENU IS CHANGING – FOR THE BETTER

BON APPÉTIT

Hi my friend (Email following funeral)

I feel privileged to have attended your lady's farewell which highlighted her great attributes and the unique bond you shared! As I have previously said to you, consider yourself blessed to have found your soul mate and to have spent so many wonderful years together!

It was a lovely service with very special effects - music and photos - which only you with Madeleine's inspiration could have put together! Another success story by Clancy and Madeleine! There is no doubt that your lady's memory will live on as she has touched so many hearts and influenced so many lives!

Take care and come back to us when ready!

Warmest thoughts

Just wanted to say how beautiful Naddy’s funeral service was, although I only knew a part of Maddy, it was good to see her many facettes. It wasn't a sad affair, rather a celebration of the beautiful life she had. Also loved the memorabillia bits, and the pink ties/shirts. She has left a long legacy, and I do look forward to this book once published! I've referred so many people to the site because the recipes are easy to follow. Bon courage Clancy, it's not going to be easy loosing your soulmate of 37 years, however judging by the attendance at the funeral you're surrounded by a wonderful family & set of friends who will help going forward.
Isabelle Pierre (Very good friend)
January 10th, 2012
I am sure Maddy is still with us in spirit and will be eternally thankful to have had such a husband like you as you loved her unconditionally & would do anything possible for her. Her send off was beautifully done and as you stated the funeral mass was so meaningful that it really opened my eyes about the whole dying thing hence me accepting Maddy no longer being with us but it certainly doesnt mean that I wont miss her as she has been a mother to me in the 22yrs that I have known her and I will eternally be thankful for all the good things she has taught me...1 thing for sure we have in common is being so honest and truthful & many many times it has gotten us in a lot of trouble but u know what who cares...that's just the way we are and its either people accept us or they dont....you will always be in my heart Maddy and I know that you will be there to guide me as always so its not Goodbye its See u Soon & I think u knew how I felt by my actions although I have always found it hard to express it verbally...All my love until we meet again xoxoxo"

It has been said that there are two things in life that you can't avoid - Taxes and Death
No matter how creative your accountant, there is no escape from consumption tax
As for Death, it is the Law of Nature. It is the stage of completion in the Circle of Life, which has its beginning at Birth.
That being said losing someone you love and care for is never easy...no matter how inevitable.
I have known Maddy all of my life- she was my aunt and my godmother, she was my friend.
I was a fortunate child, the first niece in the family, so for a few years monopolised the attention and affection of my father's brothers and sisters.
From the very beginning, my relationship with Maddy was one of innate understanding and acceptance of each other's character, full of joy, laughter and respect- that never changed, never vacillated for 52 years.
One of the many characteristics that I most admired about Maddy was her absolute forthrightness and raw honesty. You were never left wondering how she felt or what she was thinking. Although I know that some people may have preferred a more mollycoddled or sanitised approach. This was very much a part of her DNA, no doubt inherited from my grandmother, which I feel that I have also inherited in part...gratefully.
I am sad that Maddy with the toughest of armour had to battle cancer for so many years, only to eventually succumb and surrender.
I am sad that we will no longer share the cackling laughter and unique moments of two people who understand each other, without having to say much.
I am sad that there will no longer be the clinking of the scotch glasses for the ritual of having our trademark photos taken as we have done numerous times over the years.
But I am comforted in my belief that Life, here on Earth is merely a stopover. Maddy has transitioned to the next stage of her journey, to join her sister- Miche and brother- Guyto who have had a head start.
I am certain that Maddy's light will shine as brightly at her next destination , as it has here.
I'll miss her on a physical level, but I know that she will always be present and never too far away.

MADELEINE PHILIPPE



Comme le gaz ménager de ses chers fourneaux, elle s’est éteinte graduellement et silencieusement après avoir donné toute l’essence de son corps à sa famille et ses amis proches comme éloignés, mais retenus ensemble grâce à la toile d’araignée virtuelle tissée pour elle par l’amour de sa vie, son compagnon de route sur cette terre : son époux Clancy.

Après une ultime bataille contre le mal qui la rongeait depuis tant d’années, elle a tiré sa révérence quand le doigt de son Dieu l’a touchée lui faisant signe que son calvaire était fini, que les souffrances seraient transformées en paix éternelle…à ses côtés.

Son âme s’est dérobée à nous mais son esprit continuera à hanter nos cuisines à chaque fois que nous ferons appel à ce savoir-faire, cette passion culinaire qu’elle a si généreusement offerte à tous nos compatriotes et autres aficionados de la belle et succulente cuisine mauricienne… éparpillés de par le monde.

Elle s’en est allée rejoindre sa sœur Miche avec laquelle elle partageait la même joie de vivre, le même rire tonitruant.

Je suis certain que perchées dans le cocon de leurs nuages, elles rigoleront ensemble de notre gaucherie quand il nous arrivera de rater un de ces petits plats qui pour elle n’était qu’un jeu d’enfant.

Au revoir Maddy. Tu habiteras nos cœurs à jamais…sans parler de nos papilles gustatives !

Je t’embrasse, fort. Très fort.

Lindsay

A letter to Madeleine

I was saddened when I learned that you were no longer with us.

For years whenever I needed comfort food I would trawl through your recipes online looking for inspiration, something to remind me of Mauritius, something to bring me back to those happy times spent in kitchens eating food cooked with heart and soul. To many people like me far away from the motherland you have enabled us to do just that.

Through your recipes and the willingness to share your knowhow, you’ve conveyed to countless number of people around the world the art of Mauritian cookery and an insight to our authentic and varied cuisine. For this you will be remembered as a true Mauritian Ambassador.

When I see pictures of you with your friends and family, I understand their grief, sadness and sorrow as in all of them you exude love, warmth and kindness.

Your legacy will remain but you will be sorely missed.

I'm glad I had the privilege of having a person like Maddy let me into her life. It has almost been a year since she passed, but the love Meme gave us couldn't feel any stronger. No words could ever express what would amount to a fitting tribute for someone as loving and caring as Madeleine. As best as I can convey would be to say that her life had a real tangible effect on all those who knew her. She was never one to sit in the background or not let her opinions known. At times we wish we still had that guidance, but I feel comforted knowing you are still reaching out to us and helping us with sleight of hand.

Much Love..
Til we meet again..

What a wonderful tribute to a truly remarkable lady whom sadly I never had the privilege to meet. Madeleine’s spirit will live on through the memories she has etched in the hearts of all she came in contact with. With the warm smile of an angel Madeleine will undoubtedly continue to guide and inspire those who knew her well. I believe Clancy will always feel the strength and comfort of knowing that his soul mate is never far away, supporting him with her love and keeping his spirit alive with the memories of their great times together.

He comforts us in all our troubles." ( 2 Corinthians 1: 3-4)

Thank you Madeleine for sharing your recipes, and with that, your soulful character which will live on in your food. Last week, I made boulettes chouchou for my kids and wife using your recipe. They have never been to Mauritius, but immediately loved les boulettes. It felt very rewarding to see them appreciate Mauritian culture in such a visceral way. What better way to share and thank you for the wonderful gift.
