My heart was so sad to find out that Mrs. Adams passed away on Saturday but I am rejoicing because I know God welcomed her with arms wide open!! I was her neighbor for several years and got to see her enjoy life and people so much. She always had a sweet sweet smile and had such a great sense of humor. I loved her and I know she will be greatly missed. May God give you His Almighty strength and peace during these most difficult days ahead.

Mrs. Adams was one of the sweetest most loving Women of God I know. She had so much love to give and a wonderful pleasing personality. My mother, Winnie Lewis, my sister, Connie Morris and myself, Kash Dearing visited her numerous times in St. Augustine and took her to lunch! She was always a pleasure to be around! We cherish the time we had together and love her and will miss her on this earthly earth...Love you Ms. Adams
