Ada’s Family, Clarence, Lorna, Tony, Walter, Susie
Cynthia and I wish to express our condolences, our love, and our prayers at this difficult time. We walk with you in your grief and sorrow.. Ada was a good friend over the years……always there for you, a good soul, steadfast and true. We were both born in August of 1943. We started school together, walked Bennetts Road and Thorburn Road many a time to St. George’s School. We finished school together at St. Philip’s. .I believe there were five or six of us in grade eleven, Mary O., Loretta T., Lana T. and Ada T., me, John S. Hope I didn’t miss anyone. We shared many a good time together, lots of fun and laughter, lots of Birthday parties. Life was good. We did not lose contact over the years, always kept in touch, always exchanged Birthday cards and gifts and telephone calls. The first Christmas Card every year to our house, never missed, always came from Ada/Clarence. If I missed sending her a card at Christmas, I would send her TWO the next year to catch up.
Ada will be missed……loved to talk to her, loved to visit her when at home for holidays. We shared so much and laughed so much….very sad that she is gone. God bless Ada. Go now my child upon your journey to eternal life with Christ, and to your joyful resurrection.
Our Love to all, John and Cynthia

a Message to the Memory , of one of the kindest people I have ever had the honor of meeting aside from my own Mother. Ada cared for me as a child in the days of the Children’s Rehabilitation Center. in those days , I did not always have my mother as I was from out of town , so Ada became my mom her eyes always said , you will be fine , and the smile she always carried lifted the hurt of missing family. I wont forget you Ada .. Thank you and I Love you Rest easy . Condolences , to Family , friends and Loved ones she leaves here

So sad to hear if Ada`s passing. I have very fond Memories of her spending many years in and ada was well loved by everyone that she came in contact with. She always had a friendly smile when needed and loved her game of cards. Have thought about her over the years quite often and always wondered how she was. My condolences to Clarence who she spoke of often and Lorna and the rest of the family during this sad time.

Lorna ,Tony ,Clarence,Walter and Susie,

We are so very sad to hear the news of Ada’s passing.
She was a wonderful person who will be forever missed by everyone who were Blessed to know her.

Our Family loved her many visits when your mom and dad would visit our family home and we had many good laughs together over the years.
Lots of good memories of them as well when they would go to the cabin years ago.

Mom is surely going to miss her at Admirals Coast as they shared a lot of days together since mom went into the home.
Ada would always light up a room with her warm spirit and personality and hearty laugh.

Hold all your special memories close to your heart and it will comfort you in the days ahead.
Our Thoughts and Prayers are with you all during this very difficult time.

God Bless You All
Linda David
