Adeline was a great neighbor our children grew up together sharing each of our homes. I will always remember the story she would tell someone when she was ask what her name was "Add a line" especially children. She was a funny lady! I know she will be missed and my heart goes out to her family.
Love & Blessings to all!

Adeline you were the sister who would comb my hair and polish my nails. You are the one I loved and admired and couldn't wait for you to come home for a visit. I will never forget the roll of dimes in a plastic cylinder you brought home to me. You had collected dimes from all your friends at work for me. The trip to Houston at age 14 will always stand out for me. You took me shopping and to see San Jacinto mon. And the Battleship Texas. So exciting.
There's so many memories. I can't list them all. But I will always love you.
Your Sister Kathleen
