 I was saddened to see of Ada's passing but know that she is with Harry now. They were both so sweet. I got to know them as a 17 year old working at McDonalds when they came in several times a week to have sundaes. I stayed in touch over the years and always enjoyed when I would see them.

Connie and Family: You have my deepest sympathy. She is finally home and whole again and with her heavenly family. I know they were at the pearly gates to welcome her home. They are all together again. Again, my heartfelt sympathy.

Aunt Ada will be missed...
You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
