    Your mom was a good woman. She did a great job raising all of her kids. Each and every one a friend to me. I'm glad you were all able to be with herin the end. Her children and husband, and extended family and friends. I'm sure it eased her fears. May you all find comfort in that. She is in the Lord's hands now.

    The Sigala family have been a big part of my life and continue to be. I love them all so much. Adeline always welcomed me into her home with open arms. Bless her heart.

    I was so glad when I was able to visit Adeline, last week. So many good memories of being in her home when I was younger. She always had smiles, and you would hear yelling at one of the children. She will be missed-prayers to all the family-God Bless
