MARY AND FAMILY,
I WAS SHOCKED TO HEAR ABOUT BILLY JACK. I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW HE WAS ILL. I HAVE BEEN OUT OF TOWN SO I MISSED HIS FUNERAL. I AM SO SORRY, I WOULD HAVE BEEN THERE. BILLY JACK WAS MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE COACH, EVERYTIME I SAW HIM, WE WERE RELIVING A TENNIS TOURNAMENT. HE ALWAYS SAID I PLAYED BETTER AS LONG AS HE WAS SMOKING HIS PIPE! I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HIS CHEERY ATTITUDE. HE WAS ALWAYS SO POSITIVE, IT MADE ME FEEL LIKE I COULD DO ANYTHING. I WILL MISS HIM VERY MUCH.
ALWAYS, JAN YOUNG LONG

Coach Adams was always one of the teachers I had fond memories of. When I was in his class, I worked a little harder than in some of my other classes because I thought he was a pretty demanding teacher. The next summer, he told my parents I could have gotten away with a lot in his class & never did. If I had just known I wouldn't have put out as much effort! He was always so full of life & an all around great guy. I know he will be truly missed. My thoughts & prayers are with his family.
