|life will not be the same without you...|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Adrienne Basile, who passed away on July 12, 2015. A good friend is someone who knows the song in my heart and can sing it back to me when I, myself have forgotten the words.
"I would love to see that picture. Miss her so much... I think you can leave pictures on one of the other tabs on this site. Hmmm... oh, I took one of the other pictures off so you can share the new one! Thanks for your thoughts... <3"
"I have a great little photo of Adrienne with our mutual friend, Karen Curtis, at Terre Sol Nursery, off Patterson in Sta. Barbara -
Year, unknown - maybe now about 6-7 years ago?
Anyway, I'd like to post it, but sadly, can not really afford to buy the upgrade for this site, that will allow more than (3) photos....darn it....I am glad to be reminded today, of Adrienne - Miss you Darlin' ...."
I miss you--you were my friend and mentor and I would not have made it through the past 3 years without you. I miss our conversation, walks, and our time on campus. You possessed such creativity, genius, insight, and most of all courage. I am blessed to have met you and have share that time with you. I will never forget it and the wisdom and stories you shared will stay with me the rest of my life. Today, on your birthday, I am reminded of your absence and I wish I could call you and hear you laugh, make a joke, rant, or say to me, "Christine are we ever going to finish..." I wish we both had finished. I miss you dear friend, will always love you, and your kindness and beautiful heart will never be forgotten.
"What a shock to hear of our girl passing. I will always remember her kind laugh and funny ways. She was also a great hair person, and every experience with Adrienne was a fun one. Mousse Odile, and at the same time, Mane Street, then the salon in the 1900 block of State Street with the landlady that drove her nuts, the little coffee house she started on SB Street. I wish that had been successful for her. She was more about decorating it than running it each day starting at 7 am! Terra Sol, Carp High, Pacifica, Adrienne is a true Santa Barbara girl and we will miss her. Dammit anyway."
Where fore art thou? Last month, I felt like you came to me telepathically...you really popped into my mind. I had just driven past a little house you had lived in, on Laguna street, I believe it was.
I last saw you at Terre Sol - but I met you in the kitchen at Mousse Odile, oh so many years ago - We were early morning Bakers together there - those were such fun mornings - You always cracked me up -
You are a bright star, so quick to laugh -
You had such a spirit and a way about you.
Yesterday, Linda Mason let me know that you had dropped your Body - and I was just sad and shocked. I wanted to see you - I had things to talk to you about and gossip about, ,memories.
I'm so sad you are not here now - your obit said you passed fairly painlessly - and I'm only glad for that.
I send you a big huge Hug - and lots and lots of Love - and I'll hope to see you/ feel you, in the continuum - or where ever we may meet again.
With all my broken heart;
"Adrienne was part of a tribe of young 20 somethings when we became friends in SB through my sister Rebecca. She had authentic warmth, listened deeply, loved to share a laugh,and lit you up with her smile. She tamed my wild mane to a smooth finish for my wedding and gave us a picnic basket of champagne and snacks to take on our honeymoon to Hawaii. I keep my Christmas decorations in that basket and think of her every Dec. when I decorate our tree. We lost a lovely spirit too soon!"
In the 21 years we shared knowing each other the memories will never be forgotten. What comforts me the most is knowing you are finally reunited with your Mother. It is so hard for me to believe you are gone............."
You were my first friend in Santa Barbara. You introduced me to the unique culture of State Street; picking movies, restaurants, and walks as our social director and tour guide. You were there when no one else was, and I will always appreciate that.
We had moments of hilarious laughter and deep contemplation as we learned each other's stories. You were a support to me in times of fear and loss. We walked together through some of the worst times in our lives, but celebrated as we came out on the other side with a bit more serenity and wisdom. You urged me to live larger, and grow stronger.
I wil always admire your style, not in clothing.. but in living, collecting, designing, caring, and risking enough to reach for that dream."
Have a suggestion for us?
