So sorry to hear of the loss of your mother-in-law. She sounded like an amazing person who made a difference.

With deepest sympathy,

I will always remember Zada for her unshakable Christian faith, her love of her family, and her incredible wit. I can see her teaching the Sunday School class or offering a communion prayer during the church service at Maplewood Christian Church, her fingers deftly reading her notes that she had typed on her Braille Writer. She expected the best from people, and that was part of how she inspired so many of the rest of us. She ended every conversation with "I'll see you" and how right she was. Judi Linville, Bel Nor

My sister Joyce just called to let me know about Zada'a passing. She was one of my mother's best friends in Maplewood Christian Church and paid tribute at her funeral in 2003, saying they were like sisters. (My mother was Imogene Longwith.) They shared so much as the children of the two families grew up, but you probably don't remember me as I was the oldest Longwith daughter. She always recognized my voice even years later when I visited.I will always remember Zada as a remarkable, intelligent, and very special lady.

Joan, Bob and Bruce, Your mom was a proud and regal lady! Yet, she was as "down to earth" as anyone could be. She welcomed this (young at the time) southern girl into the family with open arms years ago! Her intuitive nature, knowledge and keen sense of humor never failed to amaze me! There will be a large, empty void on this planet without her....however, she is now communing with her loved ones who went on before her. I, too, know the sting of loss....just last year I lost my dad in May and my mom (45 days later) in June. The pain of loss never leaves your heart, however, with time it becomes less intense. May God Bless you all and support one another as never before! Micky, Kari and I send our love! Joan, please call me sometime (337-898-6649.

Aunt Zada will truly be missed by everyone whose life she touched. To me, she was a second mother. There was never a time in my life that she was not there and part of my family.

She shared with me her love of family, literature, music, politics and current events. To this dayI marvel at her vast knowledge and limitless energy.

But what I will miss most is just being able to pick up the phone or drop by the house to talk for hours on end about everything and nothing.

She was truly loved and will be sorely missed.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
