ADD A MEMORY
William Lee

I met Adell and her husband Jack when my family moved to Athens, Georgia in 1977. At that time, my mother was living in California, so Adell and Jack became surrogate grandparents for my children Alexis and Graham. Adell and Jack frequently had the kids over to spend the night and the kids always had such fun. Adell and Jack had such big hearts and their willingness to treat us as family members will always be remembered.

Adell had such a bright spirit, full of fun and joy. I still have strong memories of her smile, laughter, and love of life. I miss her already.
