    While I did not know your loved one personally, I am very sorry for your loss. I hope your precious memories of your dear loved one brings you a measure of comfort in the days ahead and that you may get comfort from the scripture at John 5:28-29 of a resurrection promised by God.

    I’m so sorry for your loss . I lived across the street from Ann Adams and her three kids and I were the best of friends growing up! My mother was a bowler and played the organ. I remember Betty coming over to play mom’s organ. I still have a picture of her playing that organ ! Praying for all of the family and friends 🙏
