It has been a year now since our beloved Addy Grace went home to be with her Heavenly Father. Our lives have never been the same, we still cry for her and wish we could talk to her and hear her wonderful laugh that we all remember.If we could only have one more day with her so we can tell her how much we love her! I pray that this next year of grieving gets easier for all of us that miss her so much, especially for my mom Del, my Aunt Lee & my cousin Michelle who is still mourning so deeply for her mom. Addy might be gone from this earthly place but she will never ever be FORGOTTEN!!!!!

I will long treasure the time that I was able to spend with Addie. It was truly my pleasure and delight to serve as her pastor.

Each and every month I would make the short trip to Addie's house to see her. Our visits had a predictable pattern. We would sit down at her kitchen table. Actually, I would sit down. Addie would serve a treat. Frequently we had a piece of chocolate cake with white frosting and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This was accompanied by a cup of coffee or two. For some reason, my cup always had to be filled. Addie liked to “freshen it up” for me. As we enjoyed the treat, we would engage in lively conversation: about the world, about our families, and about our church. Our conversations were often punctuated by laughter. Addie had a great sense of humor. (I miss her smile and I miss her laugh!) Inevitably, the phone would ring. I would say something to the effect of, “That must be Michelle.” Most of the time I was right. Sooner or later, we got down to business. We went through a shut-in liturgy that I had developed years ago. We joined together in confessing our sins, and we heard the blessed words of absolution. We listened to the Word of God, and thought about what it meant for our lives. We said the Creed together and the Lord's Prayer. Before closing our service, we shared the Sacrament of the Altar.

No doubt about it, Addie was a woman of great faith. When I think of Addie two images come to mind. For the last decade or so of her life, Addie was on oxygen. It is not easy to live with COPD. But Addie did so with grace. She did so by the grace of God. When I think of Addie now, I am reminded of something that the Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthians. Paul had been afflicted by a physical ailment of some sort. He told the Corinthians that he had pleaded with God on three different occasions to remove this thorn from his flesh. Instead, the Lord responded: “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness." Paul finally accepted his condition with these words: “Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.”

Addie lived by grace. After she passed away, I was reminded by Michelle that her mom made sure to always include her middle name when she made her signature: Addie GRACE Campbell, she wrote. She loved her middle name, and she treasured the priceless grace of her Savior.

The other lasting image I have of Addie is that of the piano sitting in her living room. Addie loved the hymns of faith that she had grown up singing. The saints of old put it this way: “The Lord is my strength and my song. He has become my salvation.” (See Exodus 15.) Addie would have said Amen to that!

I miss Addie. But, by the grace of God, we will see each other again.

So sorry for your loss. I know how close you were and how much time you spent caring for each other.
I think it is important to keep her in your heart and remember the good times. I remember her fun loving approach to life and admire her stubborn courage in surviving her illnesses. I think she would want us to live fully and love life, like she did.... Love to you, Susie

My first memory of Addie was in about 1973 right after the family first moved to St. Cloud. She would come to the high school at noon, and we would sit in her Buick LaSabre to eat our lunch. Later I learned that was so typical of the kind and loving mother that Addie was. She loved generously beyond her own family, and I am proud to be included as one of her many "loved ones." I will miss you Adeline Grace, but your loving spirit will stay forever in my heart.
