We were saddened today by the news that our friend Ada Richards passed on Tuesday. She was visiting her son in Atlanta when she suffered a sudden heart attack. We talk to Ada pretty often. By The Numbers readers know her from her letters to us (written from the point of view of her friends at Botsford Hospital in Farmington Holls, Michigan). Numero fans also know her music from our Good God! Born Again Funk compilation.
Ada will be remembered more in Detroit for her generosity as a successful local businesswoman with a small chain of beauty parlors who was known to share from her surplus. After her retirement she was known for her volunteer work. We consider ourselves lucky to have gotten to know her.
