I have just learned of Adeline's passing. My sympathies to her family.
My husband (Rob Young) and I had the privilege of living right beside Adeline from 1986 to 1991. She was caring for her mother, Nancy. They both attended a neighbourhood bible study that I also started attending. They were very generous, kind and friendly. Adeline taught me to garden and gave me about half of her gardening space. This was no small garden, I might add. She handknit a beautiful yellow blanket for our son, Philip when he was born in 1988. She had the most unusual apple tree (pound apples, I believe because they must have weighed about a pound each) and she shared those with us. She dried the apples in her oven and gave them as treats. She also had a beautiful rose bed that bloomed outside my kitchen window. God knew I needed to trust Him again and it was because of neighbours like Adeline, that my faith bloomed and continues to grow.
I'll see you in heaven, Adeline.
