Dear ones all - Thank you for the beautiful picture you put in the paper of Mom - I will always remember when I first met her and the family - So many memories over 30 plus years as neighbors. I'd come to the house to talk and dad would go to the kitchen to watch TV. I could write a book on the "Adams') family.I could take my troubles to her. We laughed - cried - get angry about things we didn't think were right - we didn't always agree but we still were friends. A beautiful seamstress - I'd go for a visit and hanging on the doorway were dresses waiting to be fit for finishing touches. She didn't quit sewing - she sewed cancer pads at her church with the ladies. A work of love, So much to be said about her - She has wings of an angel - One of my favorote scriptures is Isaiah 40:31- ( I have called you by name and you are mine). Rest in peace until we meet again Love to all the family - Juanita F. Murrill - Bluffton, Indiana

Dear Family,

We send you our heartfelt condolences upon the loss of your mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. My memories of Aunt Ruth, wife of my dad's brother and sister of my dear Gram, are warm ones---I'll always remember her spunk, her laughter and humor and her enthusiasm for sewing and her encouraging me to sew. Also, she loved her family and was so very proud of each one! May she dance a jig in Glory Land with all our kin. God bless each one of you.
