  • Gaylin Adams says:

    Jadie, you taught me so much over the many years of my life. I hope you know that in every hug and every kiss goodbye how much I loved and missed you over so many years. The last was the hardest, even though we didn’t know it was. Life has taken us in so many directions, over so many miles, you have never been far from my thoughts, I am constantly reminded of you in every day tasks (like crossing my legs when I sit, ‘Cross you ankles dear, you are a Lady’, when I shout at my daughter – its not ‘me and so and so’ its ‘so and so and I’. My son, your Great Grandson will forever bare your initials, J.D, the name we affectionately knew you by. May you have found peace and rest. I am very proud to have you as my Grandmother, You are forever in my thoughts and my heart.

    Gaylin, Gareth, Nacoya and Jack.
