Mrs. Adams I am glad you are with God and suffer no more. I really miss driving up to your back door and having coffee and our wonderful talks about our families and especially being grandmothers. Miss you. Bettye

Dear Bereaved Family,

May each of you draw consolation in these words found in The Holy Scriptures: "...Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time; while you throw all your anxiety upon him because he cares for you." (1 Peter 5:6,7)

My sincerest condolences,

This wonderful lady could make you feel as wonderful and happy as she was! She loved her family dearly and never missed her grandchildrens events when we were at Immanuel. She was always happy to lend a hand when needed and someone I truly admired. We are all blessed to have had her touch our lives.........

I just learned of Mrs. Adams passing. Doyle, Andrew and Michael and family- I am so sorry for your loss of your mother/Mimi. I have known Mrs. Adams since I was a child. I did not really get to know her until we were working in the concession stand at Immanuel. She was so proud of her all her grandchildren and her boys/men. I had the privilege later on of sitting with her many nights and boy we had fun talking and sharing stories. We laughed and cried. She talked about the love she had for her family and especially her grandchildren. She always wanted to make sure I was comfortable with coffee or something to snack on and she was the one so ill. I admired her strong faith in God and the love she had for all her family and their well-being.
Matthew 25:23 -
His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
I will miss you Mrs. Adams and the coffee at your kitchen table and the stories of love, life events and the love of God and how to cook Italian food. She was a wonderful friend. My heart feels so empty now.

I know that Mrs. Adams in in heaven with our dear lord now and has no more pain and no more worries. She is at peace. I also know we will all see her again in heaven.
My sincere condolences to all of the Adams family. Love, Bettye Martinez-Castellese and family.
