    I remember Mrs. Adair so well from her days at the Frankfort Community Public Library. The years she was there were part of my growing up years. Being in the profession myself now, I understand the devotion she gave to her work and to all she served. Condolences to her family and friends.

    I worked at the library with Edith a few years before her retiring. She was a lovely lady, always had a smile on her face. I will not be able to make the memorial, due to a previous appointment, but I will hold all of you close in thought & prayer. With Deepest Sympathy!

    I first met Edith when I was younger would go into the Frankfort Library where she would check out my books my books. In later years the tables turned and I worked at the library and would check out books for her. A very special lady who always had time to share a smile. She touched many lives while working at the Frankfort Library and will be missed. And
