Dearest Judy;

It's been a very long time since I've seen you, but had to send a note of condolence on the passing of your mother. She was such a class act. I know the Elsbury's loved her. I hope all is well with the rest of your family. Darren is still Darren, and continues to make everyone laugh. God Bless.

My condolences to your family. Adele was a joy to work with at WCCC. She did a wonderful job moving the Act 101 program forward and supporting students with academic needs. And she was fun to be with! Siincerely, Mary Stubbs

I knew Adele through my mother, Susan Shincovich, who worked for her at the Hiram G. Andrews Center. Adele was so matter of fact, so good with people, and so vivacious and quick to laugh. She always made me feel like I was exactly the person she wanted to be talking with. In about 2002 when I was living in Shadyside, Adele took me out for a drink near Pitt's campus. This is my favorite memory of her: us having
