Heaven gained another angel! Bill Adams was a good friend of my dad's and always came to see him. He changed my dad's whole spiritual outlook on religion and for that I will be forever grateful. I have no doubt that they are up there in heaven now deep in conversation again. God bless and comfort his family during this hard time.

Bill was a loving caring man. I enjoyed my relationship with him as he pastored our church at Riverside Baptist Church in Rome, Georgia 30161. He was a very wise man who had more wisdom than most. My life is richer because Bill came into my life.
