    I had the privlege to know Addie for many years when I did her hair every Friday. In later years she would bring Claude with her. What a wonderful time we would have laughing and telling jokes. My husband and I had went with them several times to eat fish at the fire department. What a wonderful couple they were. I have missed them since she has not been able to come to the shop. I always knew that when Claude was gone a big part of her was gone. Now they are together. What a comfort that must be to you. I will always love her!!!!Love Judy Fox

    We purchased Claude & Addie’s home back in October, and have since heard nothing but wonderful things about them from the neighbors. Living in the home they shared for so many years makes us feel connected to them (even though we’ve never met them). We’ve done several things around here “In Addie’s Honor” (based on the word of our neighbor Bill Honeycutt who loved her dearly). We offer our condolences to Addie’s family- may God bless you and bring you peace during this sad time.

    McInturff Family, So very sorry to hear of the recent loss of your dear loved one. May the God of Comfort be with each of you during this difficult time. A loved one lost can grieve the heart and make us yearn for tomorrow, when Jehovah will keep his promise of no pain, no death, no sorrow. (Revelation 21:4) I hope all the wonderful memories that were shared help sustain you during the days to come. Warm Christian Love
