Courageous, brilliant, eternal optimist. Wonderful writer full of humor, insight, and wisdom. Never seen someone so smart and educated remain so open-minded and humble. She had that rare thing called mastery. What a pro.
So fun, so funny, what a scientific mind merged with a creative soul! A champion of those who couldn’t speak up. Always learning, loved music. One of a kind, saw me, saw everyone. To know her was to love her.
If she was on your team, then you were on the winning side. Thank you Adele for always caring, always doing your best, always having my back. You stood up against injustice countless times. You took slings and arrows for others, seemingly in stride. So full of crackling energy, it was as if lighting entered the room when you did.
I have never felt closer to you than I do now. Reading Caring Bridge and this tribute site, I now understand these “strange gifts.” Look at how you have changed so many people. Look at all you accomplished, how many talents you have, how loved you are, what good you have done. Dearest Adele, I love you. Thank you for it all.
