I know that your family misses you so much. You were like my daddy, one of a kind. I have great comfort in the belief that you are together in heaven watching over us all. I close my eyes and I see smiles and hear laughter, just like I remember growing up. I love you Uncle Bob

What a special man. And Lee Etta is special too. You kids have been very
blessed to have these parents.

I loved to hear him sing. And what a sense of humor too. He certainly loved the Lord.

When someone you love becomes a memory the memory becomes a teasure! I will treasure how Bob Adams sung ALL of his specials from his heart! He couldn't help but to stomp his foot at times to drive the point home! "Fill my Cup, Lord! I lift it up, Lord!" And that the Lord surely did! My prayers are with the love of his life and precious family!

i have so many memories of uncle bob and aunt lee etta, as a child i loved staying all night at their home . we lived at the lake of the ozarks and would come to kansas city for christmas with the grandparents and me and my older brother would stay at their house on christmas eve and we got to hang one of his socks up because they would stretch out long and there would be a tangerine in the toe of mine, he and aunt lee etta were the poster people for not only being in love with your spouse but also liking them and being friends, i have always tried to carry that example into my marriage. he was a good father, husband and a very good uncle, i loved him very much and always will, now he and my dad are in heaven together. we will all mourn his passing but will have so many good memories of him.

I love you Daddy! Thank you for being our "constant"! You taught us how to live and even how to die! Watching you leave us with such peace is a lesson to me! My goal is to TRY to be who you were to us! What a Godly example of consistency and trusting in the Lord in every situation. Love you forever!! You will forever be in my heart and in my thoughts! Smile down on me!! thanks for letting me be your baby girl! there's no one else I would rather be!
