Adele, we were friends for over 40 years and I remember so many great times we had together and with Johnny and Joe. The time at the hockey game & getting lost. The many times at your house in Rochester with all the shenanigans! All the laughter. You both being Godparents for Nikki. The times at my house. Our vacation to Wildwood & the guys peeking around the bathroom door (how we laughed)!Going to West Virginia for pizza ( couldn't believe you ate 5 pieces).Sleeping in the back of the Pinto on our way to New Jersey. All the partying we did including all the new years eve celebrations. The times we spent at your apartment in Center. All the fun times in card club.The trick we all played on Joe with the blanket. The time I laughed so hard I vomited (Johnny took care of me) & wet my pants in our basement in Rochester & Joe left me there all night! You thought that was funny.... How afraid you were to get your 1st haircut with your beautiful long hair & you looked gorgeous. The time your car started rolling down the hill at my house in Rochester. Oh so many, many memories of my beautiful friend. We never once had a fight and I loved spending time with you & Johnny. How we laughed when the guys wiped out all those people at North Park ice skating. I could keep going but you know all this already. My beautiful friend, I will always love you & miss not having you here in this physical world. I know you are in a better place and are looking down on your whole family with love. To Johnny, Angela, Nicholas, and Austin, I pray you will feel Adele's presence always and know that she is your angel in heaven. I love you all & pray for peace & comfort in your time of need. I'm here if you need to talk at anytime.

Dear John, Angela and Nicholas: Please accept my sympathy and condolences at Adele's passing. I was filled with sorrow when I learned of Adele's passing in Sunday's newspaper. I have such fond memories of her from my days at Community College where she was switchboard operator and times spent in your home. I wish I would have stayed in touch but know that I thought of all of you often. Adele will always hold a special place in my heart. She was a beautiful person inside and outside. I will include her and your family in my daily prayers. May God bless all of you and grant you peace of body, mind and spirit.

I'm really sorry to hear about Adele. We both know that she is now with God in a better place with his suffering gone. I know how much his pain caused you sorrow and grief. But, God will never give us more than we can bear, and she is with you through every step in your life. Adele will always be with you; her spirit and good will be part of you no matter where you go. I know that you wanted, needed, and hoped for more time to spend with her but the time you did spend with Adele meant so much to her. She loved you all very much and I know you will miss her terribly. God gives us examples on this earth of how we should live our lives and Adele was one of the best examples I know. Know our prayers and thoughts are with you all. Doreen Bailey

Dear John and Family, Your pain is ours, your loss is ours, just know that we care and love you all so very much just as we loved Adele. There is sadness in all of our families even though we know her suffering is over and she is in a better place. We loved her like a sister, we respected her as your loving wife, we adored her for her motherhood, she was small but mighty and especially appreciated her returned loved she showed our family at all times. She was compassionate and caring, traits you don't see to often in this lifetime, but most of all she was so brave in her fight, something none of us will ever forget, that was "our" Adele. Just know she will remain in our hearts forever. We will always be here for all of you, we can only hope you take our love to help diminish some of your pain. We are family and we make a good one. Love Lou, Shell, and family
