My dear Uncle Jack an amazing man. As I reflect back to the many memories I shared with my uncle. He dedicated years to documenting the Adams family history. He always pushed his nieces and nephews to do their best at what ever they do. I can recall when he attended my graduation from college, he wanted to be there to document that milestone in my life, and he was so proud of me. Uncle Jack will truly be missed for all his great deeds and contributions to Adams family tree. I send my prayers to my Aunt Johnnie, cousins Vic and Lori, I love y'all.

I never had the honor to meet Mr. Adams; however I know his daughter and impact he made on her life. That tells an awful lot about a man. To the entire Adams family, I am praying for peace and strength for the days and years to come. God bless you all.

Jack will always be remembered. His love for family history inspired many to follow in his footsteps. We enjoyed the many family reunions shared with him (both the Adams and Thomas families). Jack was such a proud man who loved his wife, children and family. We pray soon you all will be able to laugh, love and embrace all of his loving years with you.
We pary that all traveling family and friends celebrate Jack's life and return safely to their homes without incidence. In Christian Love, the Thomas Family. Celestine, Alvin, Teresa, Elwanda, Vanessa, Antwan and Ian.

Words alone cannot express our sympathy on the untimely death of your beloved husband, father, brother and friend. To say that his time with us was far too short is an understatement. The reality is that he will be sorely missed by all who loved and knew him.

No doubt the outpouring of sympathy you have received since his parting has been of some consolation. Hopefully it will serve as a reminder to you of how well-loved and liked he was.

I hope that you and your family will find peace and comfort in knowing that his suffering is over and that his just rewards await him.

May God bless you and your wonderful family.

Yours In Faith,
The Freeman / Jotham Sisters !
