Mrs. Adams brought sunshine to every room she entered. I really admired her and enjoyed her company very much. Our families camped together for years in the summer months and spent the winters visiting each others' homes, attending special events, and sharing our lives. Later when I moved to the other side of the country, Mrs. Adams brought smiles my way by sending hilarious jokes by email. She had a wonderful spirit and was a fabulous role-model, a special friend, and a devoted member of our camping group, the Motley Crew. I miss her already...
