Choina Family--

Adele was my cousin who was nearer to my sisters' ages than mine, but we were still able to connect even though our talks were few and far between. Adele was kind, caring, and openly friendly to all. I still have her message on my phone about her inspection sticker that she called to tell me about after my sister's 80th birthday party last October. I have listened to it several times in disbelief that she is no longer with us. I do know that she is now with her soulmate, Neville. She will be in my thoughts and prayers always.
