  • Sending my deepest sympathy to all of Addie’s family. I met her at Grief Share. She was the first one I sat with at Berean Gold. Always saw her at church and a lot of luncheons. I will always remember her smile and beautiful eyes. I will miss her.

  • Our hearts and prayers go out to all of you as we both grieve our loss and celebrate Aunt Ad’s life as it continues in the presence of our Lord and Savior, Jesus.

It’s so good we are part of a forever family and we will see her again. Love to you all…
