Adele was such a kind, caring person. It was so nice of her to call and check on us often to make sure we were doing ok after our mother passed away earlier this year. We really did appreciate that. We will miss talking to her. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. - Dana Sonka Shoemaker and Nancy Sonka
