    YODER asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. YODER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to praise the life and legacy of a personal hero of mine. Adele Hall was one of the kindest, warmest and friendliest people I have ever known. Yesterday, Adele was laid to rest amongst the outpouring of family and friends who were touched and inspired by the heartwarming and graceful life that Adele led.

    Called the first lady of Kansas City, Adele and her adoring husband, Don, have been staples of the Kansas City community for a generation, providing irreplaceable leadership in both business and civic affairs.

    Her obituary states in part: Adele was interested in a broad range of community needs with a special passion for the needs of children. She was tireless working toward those interests in any capacity needed--as a visionary board chairman, energetic champion and catalyst for change, hardworking committee member, dedicated fundraiser or hands-on volunteer.

    We will forever miss Adele's good deeds in our community; but, most of all, I will miss her smile. To Adele Hall, thank you for your life of inspirational leadership. You have forever found a place in our hearts.
