Dearest Denise, Jeff, and families,
Aunt Adele was a very special aunt who always brightened up parties with her keen sense of humor. Listening to her share her cherished memories of the Sklade family always sparked interest. Now, love and fond memories of our favorite Aunt Adele will always remain in our hearts and minds.

To my FAVORITE Aunt Adele,
I cherish all of my fond memories of you.
Thanks for sharing some of your memories, (of my late parents), with me.
You were truly one of a kind AND a "fountain of information".
You also made the best Whiskey Sours EVER!!!
I'll never forget you.
