I remember interacting with Ada, when Ada’s daughter, DeAnn was recouperating from surgery & staying at her Mother’s. She was so kind & protective of DeAnn. I could just feel the love! I remember thinking, what a sweet soul! My deepest condolences to Ada’s family! She was an awesome lady!

When I was about 11, I decided to venture into the world of business by going around the neighborhood offering to cut grass for the neighbors. My initial price for performing this service was $ 1.00. After being turned down by everyone, and figuring that the reason was that my price was too high, I lowered my price to $ .25. Ada Lou recognized a deal when she saw it and agreed to the deal. Upon completion of the task, Ada Lou gave me the $ 1.00 that I had originally requested. I shall always remember Ada Lou for her generosity, and her helping me during my initial venture into the business world.
