Advertising agency owner Madonna Badger says that since losing her parents and three young daughters in a house fire on Christmas Day 2011, she's learned that love can never die.

One day, while cleaning her bathroom, Madonna says, she began crying uncontrollably. "It was what I call a level-10 cry," she says. Madonna says she looked in the mirror and hardly recognized herself. "I remember thinking, 'Wow, that woman is in a lot of pain.'"

In that moment, Madonna says, she felt the powerful presence of her girls behind her. Watch as she describes the emotional experience and shares how she continues to feel connected to Lily, Sarah and Grace.
