  1. Joel, Brenda, and Emma,
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. Sweet Addie will be missed by all who knew her. May you feel God’s loving arms around you as well as the love from your friends.

  2. I remember Addie as a precocious kindergartner when our family first arrived at the Manassas congregation. And I have been impressed with the graceful young lady that she became. She always had a great big smile and a cheerful, “How are you Mr Noe?”
    Over the years I have enjoyed many conversations with Addie. She would often have some thoughtful topic: I think the first was, “Look at my new American Girl doll.” Later it was, “How was your trip?”, or “What is it like being old?” Not snarky – she was sincerely asking. Addie consistently demonstrated wisdom and maturity beyond her years, and I will miss her sorely…
    Joel, Brenda, Emma, I stand ready in ANY way that you need, just as you abundantly did for me in my time of loss.

  5. My thoughts and prayers are with you Joel, Brenda, and Emma. Addie was a beautiful sweet and polite young lady. I am so sorry for your loss. God will be there to guide all of you thru this difficult time.

  6. The words in our language do not exist to adequately express the sadness of our hearts as we grieve with you on this day. Our hearts are heavy for your loss. God, in His infinite wisdom has, for now, hidden from your view the spirit that was presented to the world, in the earthly body of your sweet Addey. In the coming days, embrace the love expressed as: shoulders to lean on; arms to provide spiritual shields around your broken hearts, and hands raised in prayer to the Father as He continually wipe the tears from your eyes as He will turn your sorrow into peace.

  20. Our hearts ache for the loss to us and to Joel, Brenda and Emma (and to many of her friends and family) of our dear sweet granddaughter, Adelyne Rose. Addie was a bright light in our lives. Her verve, her many talents, the twinkle in her eye, her spirit made our lives joyful. Addie, you were taken away from us so suddenly, so soon, so unlooked for! We love you and though you have gone to our God and to our Lord Jesus Christ, you are still our first grandchild. We would that we could yet enfold you in our arms and look into your eyes. We hope for the day when we join you there and bask in the love of our Heavenly Father. Joel, Brenda and Emma, we pray many times a day for you and for your filling by God’s comfort. We weep with you, sometimes overwhelmed by it. Know you are never alone or far from our thoughts!

  21. I know that theses tears are a language our Lord understands. I am so very sorry for this loss.
