She was such a sweet lady. Condolences to her family and to her many friends on Parade Street. She was well loved. I remember her from the Sentimental Journey times that when Loran Fevens would play there. She will long be remembered.

Although I feel bad I never spent the I should have with her, I will remember her fondly. A person who loved gardening ,people and great faith in God. As far as I'm concerned she had a caregiver like no other, Sharon. Memories are what life is all about and below are a few pictures and memories I will cherish.
When I was cleaning out my mothers house after she died I found a Book of Bible Stories Aunt Addie gave to me . Dated 1955. I was born in 1954. Then I found mandolin . When I was young I remember being to my Grandmother Ethel's house. For some reason I was looking in her bedroom closet and found mandolin. I remember asking her about it. She replied ,it belonged to Bobby . Do you want it and I said yes. As time went by I found out it belonged to Aunt Addie's son ,Robert.
I'm 66 and although I try hard, I still haven't learned to do things when I think of them . I was going to show Aunt Addie these things and then COVID hit and now its to late. I always wondered why I was named Allan Robert . Now I wonder if my middle name was after Aunt Addie son Robert . Again I will never know.
My Greatest Memory is the last picture. Aunt Addie meeting my sister Cathy. Because Aunt Addie was a firm believer in the Bible I would like to share this ......
Aunt Addie is gone from her physical form but remains spiritually in our hearts and awaits the day when our creator delivers his promises.
I find this helps me in troubled times.
John 5:28 Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice.
Revelation 21:4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
Isaiah 65: 21 They will build houses and live in them, And they will plant vineyards and eat their fruitage.
22 They will not build for someone else to inhabit, Nor will they plant for others to eat. For the days of my people will be like the days of a tree, And the work of their hands my chosen ones will enjoy to the full.
23 They will not toil for nothing, Nor will they bear children for distress, Because they are the offspring made up of those blessed by God, And their descendants with them.
24 Even before they call out, I will answer While they are yet speaking, I will hear.
25 The wolf and the lamb will feed together, The lion will eat straw just like the bull, And the serpent’s food will be dust. They will do no harm nor cause any ruin in all my holy mountain, says God.

In closing I would like to say, that when we need comfort 2 CORINTHIANS 3 and 4 says, 3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God. I'm sure Aunt Addie would agree.

May God, family and friends help your family through this difficult time.
Deepest sympathy from Barb, Allan, Shawn, Mark, Tracy, Justin, Jessica, Tyler, Sarah and Emma W
