It is with sadness that I just learned of Mrs. Adams death. She was such a longtime good friend and neighbor to Mother, especially duing that last year. Eva Dale, Anna and Buddy, my heart goes out to you in your loss but my wish is that the hurt you feel now will soon be replaced with happy memories of your Mother.

Mrs. Adams (as I will always remember her) was an inspiration and encourager to me during my childhood and a good friend my entire life. She taught me in Sabbath School for several years and was always interested in my life and family after I moved away from Memphis. I will miss her. I look forward to Heaven where we can renew our friendship and "catch up" on family and friends.

Buddy (and other children), my sympathies go out to you. What a wonderful lady. I remember her tasty pickles :) and she took such good care of Aunt Velma. I hope your many great memories will be a comfort. Jeannie McLarty
