"Franki and I are deeply saddened to learn of Adele Hall's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with Don and all of her children and grandchildren. Simply put, she was a remarkable lady who brought a grace and elegance to everything she touched. The generosity that Adele and Don have bestowed on Kansas and the Kansas City region has impacted countless lives and causes. It will be a lasting legacy for Adele and her family.
