I got to know Adele when she and Dale moved to Madison Heights and joined Temple Baptist Church. She was a lovely lady and I will miss her.

Mrs. Ladd was a dear friend to me as was Mr.Ladd, since their days at First Baptist Swannanoa. My Daddy, Jerry Pereira was their pastor there and when he was younger, they showed special care to him in his early days of revival at Beverly Hills Baptist in Asheville. I was so excited when she pulled me aside at church in Swannanoa to tell me they were moving back to the Lynchburg area. They took me under their wing and poured into me so much from college through adulthood with my own little family. She was a precious friend and though she lived a quiet life, she made a big impact for Jesus in my life. I’m so glad I got to see her from a distance when I took her a little Valentine gift last month. Much love and many prayers for the family. May you remember her impact for Jesus in your own lives by finding comfort in Him like she did.
