Our family has been blessed for the past 17 years by living next to Adele. Her compassion for others was truly amazing. She always had a kind heart for all of those around her. Obie, our rescue dog, will always be waiting for Mrs. Ruggeri to give him treats! Our deepest sympathies to all of her family.

My thoughts and prayers to the Ruggeri Family. Adele will be missed. Always a smile on her face. She would always ask me how my house was. She was so happy that I was raising my family in their family house. RIP. 🙏🙏
