Adis was a wonderful lady, and an inspiration.
She will be missed
by all those who knew her.
I am so sorry I will be out of town for her funeral.
Words cannot convey how much we all loved Adis and how much we will miss her.
Praise God, she is now free from that prison of her earthly body, and is, no doubt, praising & dancing with her Lord!
I can only imagine the Love as He said to her, "Well done, my good and faithful servant!"
Dear Ronald, Betty, Mary, and family,
peace of God, which transcends all understanding, fill your hearts and your minds. May He comfort you in your grief in the
knowledge that our dear Adis is enjoying the glory of His divine presence.
With deepest sympathy,
Maria Eugenia Keller
Adis was a woman of courage and faith
and a student and teacher of God's Word. She was a beloved part of our chapel and PWOC fellowship for many years. I will
remember fondly her radiant smile and gentle spirit. I rejoice that she is with the Lord she loved and free from her suffering.
May you, her family, be comforted by this knowledge and happy memories of her love and care as time diminishes the memories
of these last sad months. I am sorry that I will be out of Carlisle on Tuesday.
Adis was a wonderful Christian friend. I was in very many of her classes at
the CBKs chapel during the years we lived in Carlisle. She taught me more about the bible than any other person; I will remember
her fondly as my Christian role model. Our sympathies to the family.

Adis was one of God's true saints and my life was blessed by her
friendship and the Christian life she lived. I am so happy to have had her a part of my life. The angels are singing her praises
and heaven has received one of the best of God's children!
Adis was a beautiful person and a dear friend who shared her rich knowledge of the Bible and love for God
with many, many people over the years. She is sadly missed but we know she is home where she most longed to be.
