  1. Thank you for your note of sympathy, and for your prayers. Mom is missed, but she is well nowโ€”and her family is grateful to the Lord for that. We will see her again one day ๐Ÿ™‚

    We hope all is well with your family in this new year. May God bless you well during it.

  2. I was saddened to hear of Adabeth’s passing. As Marty said, she was “Mom” to all of us on the block (and probably more).
    May you all find peace in this time of sorrow, and know you’re in the thoughts and prayers of more than you know.

  3. May Jesus comfort you all as only He can as you remember and celebrate the life of this sweet, sweet lady.

  4. Dear Troublefield family:

    I was so saddened to learn of Ada Beth’s passing. I have such fond memories of living next door to you all. Ada Beth was always the block mom, who people turned to in times of crisis, or if they just needed a homemade popcycle made with Koolaid in a special tupperware mold, which one was reminded to return when you were done. She was always kind and somehow maintained a sense of humor, notwithstanding the trials and tribulations of having 11 kids (the 5 of you and the 6 of us) constantly into something. We always knew we had crossed the line when she threatened to “skin us alive” when she caught us. But ultimately we learned the meaning of grace first hand, as she never was angry for long.

    Know that we share your loss, but are very thankful for having her be a blessing to our lives as well. She was an amazing lady and we will continue to think of her and the example she set every day. You all are in our thoughts and prayers.

  5. Ada Beth was one of the warmest , most genuine persons I have ever known. I loved her and will miss her. We will meet again sweet lady on that beautiful shore.

  6. Danny and Family,

    I’m so sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. I pray you will be comforted by God’s love.


  7. I feel so honored to have called her my Friend, Prayer Warrior and Sister in Christ and even My Sister-in-law for 27 years…..I loved getting the sweet, precious little notes from her just letting me know that she loved me and thought of me often…….and you never doubted how she felt….she was so honest and sincere. Earl and her kids were her life and she loved her church and church family. She was such a Special Lady and she will be sorely missed by all…Love and prayers to Earl and all of the family

  8. My sister was, beyond a doubt, the greatest Christian Lady that ever lived!! She was the best sister that any “little” brother could ever want. She was a wonderful wife to my brother-in-law, and she was a wonderful mother to her five children. She was a “special” sister-in-law to Sabrina. She and I had a supper relationship, though there many miles between, we always knew that we loved each other. My sister, I love you!!!

  9. I know you are rejoicing in heaven right now. You will surely be missed. There is definitely another angel in heaven.

  10. Adabeth was a dear friend Heaven has gained a special angel my prayers for the family I know she is dancing with the angels ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
