I was saddened to hear about Mr. Adams passing. It always put a smile on my face to see him and Lester pull up to the shop, to get his haircut. I only wish that he had felt well enough to come and just visit for a while. I want to thank you all for sharing him with me. I truly cherished the times he came by. He always had that sweet smile on his face and a hug or two before he would have to go. I will miss him, but I know he was tired and now he can once again be with his wife and those that have gone on before him. No more pain and no more stinkin medicine. May God Bless you all.
