Dear Jean and families,
Hearing that Miss Addie passed away was such sad news. Dan said, "Mama, don't be sad...Miss Addie is up in Heaven playing the piano for the ANGEL BAND." I truly believe she is too.
Jean, I am praying that God will give you the strength to get through these sad days.
In Deepest Sympathy,
Carlene and Dan Noggle
