  1. Adele was a wonderful wife and mother who always had a smile for everyone. I have many good memories of her and offer my sincere condolences to her family.

  2. Dear Family of Adele Candelora, I am sorry about the loss of your loved one. Words cannot describe feelings in a time like this. Many have found comfort in the Bible’s promises of seeing our past loved ones again such as at John 5 verses 28 and 29. Take care of yourselves and keep memories of your past loved one close.

  3. Dear Pat and family – My brother Gregg told me about Adele’s passing, and we share your sadness. May these words offer a small amount of solace. .Be Still. Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day Be still like desert shrub. Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds. If you are still, this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.. Sending you our deepest sympathy. Love, Laura and Rocco
