Condolences to the entire Adams family! I was lucky enough to have met and enjoyed Mimi's company a couple of times. A true Texas jewel! She will forever be in my memories and prayers.

I was so sorry to her of your mother's death. I wasn't lucky enough to have met her, but have heard many stories of how sweet she was. May her memory sustain you.
I owe you a hug, as I am still in Va. with the grands and won't return in time for the service.
In my heart and prayers, Sylvia

Dear Jerry and family,
Words cannot express what a kind and fun and funny lady that Flo was. I had the good fortune to meet her while working at the Next to New Shop. She was so sweet and needed a couch delivered out to Lake Travis and I volunteered my oldest Son Daniel. Daniel of course has lived out on the property with Mrs. Adams for about 10 years now. I loved Flo she was a wonderful woman! She was so cute she even arranged for Daniel to get me a mothers day present a massage gift certificate so that we could go together and get massages! I will always remember what a spunky and cute woman she was. I will miss visiting with her so very much. My deepest sympathy to the family. She was a doll.

Our family was fortunate to meet Mr. and Mrs. Adams by being their "lake" neighbors. Mrs. Adams always had a watchful eye on our youngest child and would entertain us with stories about living in Volente. Jerry, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Cy and Flo were dear friends to my parents Tom and Bonnye Priddy. My two children loved going to the lake to visit with the Adams. Flo was a beautiful lady and will certainly be welcomed in heaven by Cy, my parents and my son! Maritia Priddy
