Mr. Addis,I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. Addis. I was sick and did not go to the NH for 2 weeks, and didn't hear about it until it was all over. If I had known, I would certainly have been there. She was one of my favorite ladies out there.

Mr. Addis and Family, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I worked with Mrs. Addis at Centerville Elementary School from 1970-1985. She was warm, friendly, and very helpful to me. In fact, I still use the decorative Christmas eggs she gave to me on my tree in memory of her. She was a sweet lady.
