Ada was our neighbor and such a sweetie to talk to when ever we had the privilege to share a conversation. She also loved our dog Ebony. We will miss her.

I will never forget the day when I met my dear friend Aida (the way I use to call her)) when I was walking on the street with my son John who was one year old in his stroller and just before I entered the building where I lived I heard Someone whisper (hello) and there she was, Aida looking out her window, she had just moved in. I remember her asking me what floor did I live on and I said the third floor and she said WOW! me too. She had this beautiful curly, dark hair, beautiful smile but the thing I remember the most were her beautiful white teeth.I remember one day joking with her I asked her, do you use ajax on those choppers and she started laughing out loud.Any way when I got to the 3rd floor she was standing there and she pointed to her apartment and asked me, would you like to be my friend? and I said yes. From that day on she because not just my only friend but my best friend for life. She also became my confident and my sister from that moment on, then later she also became my daughter's godmother. We became friends on that day and will be friends forever.R.I.P my dearest friend. Love you always and forever.
