In Memoriam-Adele Woodyard: We lost Adele Woodyard, our good friend and long-time active member, on April 21 due to an inoperable brain tumor. Thanks to the many BAPWG members who attended her memorial service on April 25 in Tarpon Springs. Adele had a good, long life with many accomplishments, and touched many lives along the way. In her memory, donations may be made to the Suncoast Hospice Foundation, 5771 Roosevelt Blvd., Clearwater, FL 33760.
