Hugs and prayers to the whole surviving family members at the Homegoing of Miss Ada. I remember her hubby also, and I’m blessed to be able to say that I shared a laugh and prayer and kind words with Miss Ada. The world will miss her for sure. However, I know she is running and jumping and smiling those big big smiles with her Lord right this very minute.

Sandra & Lou. I am so sorry for your loss. Ada & I were first cousins. I have many fond memories of our time together when we all lived near our Grand-Mother Blanche Carawon during the late stages of WWII. Memories are valuable. Always keep your Mom & Grand-Mom in your heart.

We loved Ada Lou. The pew across from me will never be the same without her there. She was one of the most faithful ladies I’ve ever known. She was always concerned for others and checked in on those who couldn’t get out often. She was a true blessing to all who knew her. ❤️

My family had the great honor to be Ada Lou's neighbor for the past 6 years. She was such a welcoming, caring person and we are sadden that we'll no longer have her smiling face waving to us from her yard. Our hearts go out to her family and loved ones.

It was with great sadness when we heard of Ms. Ada Lou passing. She was one of the first people we met as we first started attending Peace. She always had a hug and smile for you. We shared many talks about the people we both knew from New Bern. Sandralou, may God keep you in his arms of love during this difficult time.
