Mom

Alyce Adair - March 4, 1915 - November 6, 2012 - What a gal!  I am so lucky to have been her child.  She was artistic, energetic, creative, had a can-do attitude, willing to try anything, a good sport, beautiful, musical, well-read, worldly, driven, outspoken, and intelligent.

My prayers will be with you for comfort at her passing. If we didn't love so deeply the loss wouldn't hurt so much.
Sounds like she had a long, full life. What a blessing!
