To All the family, loved ones, & friends of Uncle Ade:
My heart goes out to you during this very sad time. I remember from my childhood, the beautiful horse he carved out of wood & gave to my mom. I remember Uncle Ade when I was a chld...sometimes playing in the front yard of Grandma's & twirling us kids around. I loved his picture with the Santa hat on a Hawaii beach that he & Bev sent for Christmas cards one year. I remember that for many years he wore an earring as his own rememberance of losing LaDawn & his precious grandchild. I remember how he reupholstered my parents kitchen set so my mom & dad could give it to us for my first wedding. When Linda & I saw him a couple weeks ago, he was very ill; and now he suffers no more.
It is still hard to say "good bye" to those we love so dearly.
To Bev & Uncle's kids, I wish for you comfort in your good memories!
Love, Niece Sharon & Barry
