Although I never met Adra in person, we became friends playing Words With Friends 2. We enjoyed playing the game together and getting to know each other through communication. We shared our life story and she enjoyed hearing what I was cooking for dinner. Adra, Im going to miss our conversation and playing our game. May you be at peace now with your Savior.

Adra was so warm and loving, she always made time for my girls and they thought of her as a grandma. She always had a smile and seem to know what to say. Our family will miss her greatly.
