    Our prayers and thoughts are with all of you. We will remember Adele as a vibrant, kind, loving and joyful spirit. I first met your mother at St. Peter’s and became her friend. I was drawn to her desire to be the best mother to her children. Later, when Adele worked with me in Arbonne, the room always lit up. She made friends with everyone and everyone spoke of her as if they had been her friend forever. Her eczema regime for Taylor was posted on our executive nation website years ago because of the time and care she used to research the products. It lasts today as a common tool, titled “Adele Bourne’s Eczema Regime” used by hundreds of Arbonne business builders. Her “Eye on Arbonne” Regional Vice President story is still one of the most popular stories remembered on the website because of her ability to relate to so many other mothers in our business. Her laugh was contagious and will forever be missed by all of us. We will carry her memory in our hearts forever.

    Taylor and Ricky,

    You have my heartfelt condolences on the passing of your mother.

    I first got to meet Adele last October over the telephone and we hit it off right from the start. We talked often about both of you, what you were doing in school, hockey, rugby, in your lives and the challenges you were facing as young men. Needless to say, she was so proud of you.

    Our conversations allowed us to get to know each other and the values we held important in our lives. We soon found out we had alot in common in our views on family, hockey, raising children and most other things, even religion. I remember fondly our long conversations and we continued to get to know each other.

    Taylor, when you guys came out for your visit, it was great to finally meet your Mom and finally put a face with that frequent voice over the phone. I even got a hug! Watching you two interact, I could tell that she was a Mom who cared a great deal about her boys.

    In hockey we often talk about toughness, perserverance, heart and character. It is very obvious your Mom was the epitome of all those things, and more.

    God Bless you boys,

    Jeff and Joanne Meredith

  24. Boys, Friends,
    Your mom, Adele was a great person; she has left us way to early. We went to the same school and hung around as teenagers. However we lost touch as time passed. I must say she was always remembered as a terrific lady and a great freind. I am sure she has a special place in heaven.

    Rick & Taylor, I knew both your parents before you were born. I met your mom through real estate and mentioned to your Dad about underwater rugby. He played with our team the U of C underwater sports club until he had that water skiing injury. When our children came into our lives we travelled different roads but I kept in contact with your mom with vitamins and Arbonne. Your mom’s smile and caring would radiate in a room. Your parents were both great people. They proudly talked about their sons. I believe in the years ahead they are walking on each side of you to guide and keep you strong. My deepest sympathy Cheryl Fryers
