I am so very sorry to hear about Adele. It has been years since I have seen her, but I knew Adele from Beauty School, she was in my class, a very pretty girl, beautiful smile and a wonderful personality, always laughing, we really had fun in school. Adele always told me that she had Cherokee Indian in her. I saw her name and just had to send a condolence to let you all know she was very well thought of in Beauty School, and I know Adele will be one of the prettiest Angels in Heaven. May she rest in peace!

Aunt Tink was always laughing, and she would also speak her mind. Since I also have a sense of humor I will share this story. My dad and my husband went to help her one day it was the first time my husband ever met her and she told him to give me a rest. The reason being I was pregnant again. She was looking out for me and speaking her mind. I remember lots of memories of her, but this one makes me smile. You will be missed, love u tell everyone I said I love them too.

When I was little, coming to your house was always special. I have so many fun memories. Your laugh and fun loving personality. When I was 5, I remember you and Mom putting together Easter baskets in the kitchen and you sneaking me some jelly beans. That’s when I learned the truth about the Easter Bunny!! There are so many of those kind of memories, I am fortunate to have had you for my Aunt. I’m so glad we stopped and visited in July before coming back home to Ga. May you RIP. Give everyone hugs for me and tell them I miss them as I will miss you also
