      My deepest condolence to the family of Arthur Larry Adley
      He is my first cousin. He loved his family.. He would always check on my mom which was his Aunt. And also the rest of his family checked on her also. He would always check with us to see if he could do anything for us.. We grew up like sisters and brothers. We will certainly miss Skeet. He is gone but he will never be forgotten.
