So very sorry for the death Ada Mae. She is a person who had a definite positive influence in my life as a young girl. So glad I was able to spend some weekends with her, Hope, Harry (my cousin) and my Aunt Susie at their home in Waynesboro, many years ago. I will always remember her as being encouraging, welcoming and loving. My regret is that I did not visit her enough, when I came to visit Virginia, after moving to Colorado. Rest in peace and I will always have fond memories.
