The most beautiful & infectious smile I'd ever seen. This was my first impression of beautiful Adele. I met this charming woman when her nephew Brian Chapman, married my niece Allison Roskovics. May all your memories shine brightest in the difficult days ahead.

Dear Bill,
Our Lord has promised that when we leave our bodies we are then with The Lord. Please take comfort in knowing that she is once again whole and perfect and is now doing work from the spiritual realm.
May your family find peace in knowing these things.
