  1. We never knew a person warmer or sweeter than Adele. She was a wonderful step-mom who we called our Bonus Mom! We miss her dearly and are very sorry that we cannot make the trip to Texas to share in both sorrow for her passing and celebration for her life with those who are near to her.

    Spank and Olga McCoy
