|I am very sorry for your loss Blake. I remember your mom when I vistited you in New York when I was a young teenager. She took care of me when I got a fever. One night, I noticed she had a big old can of beer, she said "it's to help me go to sleep". She was quite a character. I know that her and Uncle Roy are with the big man upstairs having a good old time.|

|I am sorry Blake for your loss.
I remember the times she and mom would do shopping and lunch. She also enjoyed her pool pals. She will be missed.

|Both Adele and Roy added spice and joy to our lives. We knew then back in our joint high school and college years. Rudy was in the QHS choir and performed in the production of South Pacific with both Roy and Adele. We keep up with their lives during occasional visits while we were all in Quincy. After Roy died Adele moved into the house across from Rudy's mother Corine allowing easy visits. She was always a delight to talk to despite her ongoing health challenge. Her hearty laugh always brightened up the visit. Corine was able to share their joint love of art with Adele several times. Our deepest sympathy to Blake and all of Adele's family and friends. She will be missed greatly.

|It is with sadness that I heard of Adele Brocksmith's passing. I had hoped to visit with her and present her with a drawing that I did of Roy many years back. I hope that Blake, if he is in town, or some family member can come to QU and pick up the drawing from my office-FRH 439. Call 228-5371.
Mary Beth and I enjoyed our friendship with Roy & Adele. From watching a man step on the moon on our black & white TV,to Roy introducing us to the wonderful musical HAIR, to them taking us to St. Louis to experience the arch (the next day we found out that while we were in the arch a earth quake hit St. Louis then), to seeing the Fantastics in NY and seeing Roy perform in central park, Jason in their kitchen with flour all over his head, to having Roy in my 2-D class which made the class exciting, and doing drawings of him acting on stage at QU and the Progressive playhouse. I really enjoyed seeing him perform the washing machine. I offer my condolences & prayers to Blake and related family. I hope that we can visit a short time. My thoughts are with them. Bob
