I first met Ada in 2005 while attending Bible Baptist for the Christmas break. I had already known Leroy. Ada accepted me right away treated me like I was one of her own. I will never forget Sister Ada as long as I live!

My girls and I met Ada in 1991. So many memories!! What I have learned from Ada is laughter, love, faithfulness, her unwaivering faith in God. She was always kind to me and a wonderful grandma to my girls. We will miss you Ada💕💕

Granny was one of the greatest prayer warriors in my life. Just a few weeks ago I sat down at her table with tears in my eyes telling her my greatest struggle. I did this because I knew Granny wouldn’t judge me but would rather help me fight my battle in prayer.

Thankful to have such a godly granny and look forward to seeing her again in that great reunion day.
