Celebrating the life of Adella Conlin
Thank you for signing Adella Conlin's Guestbook
My sincere condolences to Adella's family. Although I belong to ST MICHAEL's grief support group, I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Adella. I wish I had. I come from Levittoen, NY and was a member of St. Bridget's Parish. We would have had a lot to reminisce about. I will continue to keep her in my prayers.
