Dear Uncle Roger and Family, Rick and I were so sorry to hear of Ada's passing. I have such happy memories from when Ada lived with our family so many years ago. I remember laughing all the time until our stomachs hurt, and misbehaving and giggling during church services. Having Ada stay at our house way back then was such a wonderful treat. We are so very sorry we could not make the visitation or services. Our love and prayers are with your family.

Ada was a beautiful woman inside and out. She was an amzaing, wonderful person and friend. I admire her and all that she was. The world lost a precious woman and Heaven gained an ANGEL. God bless you all in your time of sorrow.

I have not known Ada as long as most here at the Physical Plant. From the first time I met her, she always had a smile on her face and was one of the kindest people that have know. I truly enjoyed our talks about our grandchildren, bragging of course. She will be greatly missed by all.

Ada was truly a wonderful person to work with. I don't think I ever talked to her that I didn't hang up or walk away without a smile or laughing. She enjoyed her family so much and shared that joy with us.
