Adele was a breath of fresh air every two weeks when I stopped into the bank to cash my check. She was a bright,sweet, wonderful lady. May she Rest In Peace in the arms of Our Lord.

Of all things great and small, a mother's love is best of all. I will always hold dear the time we shared, the laughter, the tears and memories. You will be dearly missed but knowing that you have reunited with Dad brings me peace. God bless you both. Happy Easter!

Dear Mom- You left us to spend Easter with Dad. Knowing that makes us feel at peace. Dad probably needs some help tending to those 4 Mals. You and Dad are sorely missed.
Love You Both.
