Mrs. Adrian was an instrumental and memorable part of my childhood.

She cared for me and my sister for well over a decade after school. She was a king and loving caregiver, and we were extremely fortunate to have her in our lives.

I remember her teaching us to braid using garbage bags cut into strips, making milkshakes when we had tonsilitis, playing with playdough in the kitchen.

She and Bill would occasionally pick us up from school, which always felt like such a special occasion because they had what I recall a big, fancy car.

All in all, what I remember most about Mrs. Adrian was that she was kind, had soft hands, and always seemed to know just what was needed whether it was a snack, to quell a tantrum, or heal a wound.

Thanks, Mrs. Adrian for all that you taught me…
