Adeline, I am so glad I got to whisper in your ear last week when I came to see you. Even though it has been over 30 years since I was your daughter-in-law, we continued to talk up until you passed. I will always remember you fondly and know that we will watch over Nick, whom you loved so much. Thoughts and prayers to family and friends.

You were a wonderful Grandmother and you are sorely missed by Mikael and me. We are so sorry that we could not be there more often in your life but always enjoyed when we talked. Thank you for everything you gave to all of us during your life and I hope that, in death, you have found the peace you deserved.
