I did not know Magdalene Adams had passed till tonight. We attended church together for years. She was always willing to go beyond what was expected and did all she could to help in projects. She lead the choir for awhile. A Godly woman and surely a child of the king. Prayers for the familyHelen Hilburn-Higley of Wilmington NC
