"Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give but cannot," she captioned the photo with the famous quote credited to Jamie Anderson. "All the unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hallow of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go."

Maddie then wrote what she was feeling in her own words, admitting they "seem to fall short" amid the enormous grief their family is feeling.
