All of you are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Aunt Ada had a personality bigger than life and one of my favorite memories of her was her sheer enjoyment of attending the Wright City Rodeo and Carnival each July 4th. I believe she enjoyed both more than almost anyone I ever knew.
That was 50 to 60 years ago. Her sparkling personality continued much, much longer than the fireworks displays of those July 4 celebrations and will be remembered fondly.
