Only today,somehow, learned of Alf's passing. I thought a lot of Alf, and could tell a bunch of stories. At once a learned man as well as country boy at heart. Alf was plain spoken, which suited me just fine. I recall doing some work for him many years ago and when I gave him my bill, he told me I didn't charge enough. He made a recommendation as to how much, and told me to start doing it with everyone, and if they didn't like it, to come talk to him. In more recent years I would see him at the lumber co or Chinese buffet, and would greet him with "T for Thompson" since his middle and my last names were the same.He seemed to enjoy that. Once as I was having supper with my wife and mom, he came up to our table and I introduced them, and he complimented me on the two lovely ladies I was with, in a most gracious and mannerly way. I drove past his ranch today and saw the high grass where his garden would be, and felt an emptiness. Rest well Mr. Adams, hope we meet in paradise. My sincerest condolences to all the family, whom I have met or known over the years.

Sorry to hear of Alf's passing, my prayers for your family. I met Alf after he moved to the mountain and worked with him to promote the Republican cause in Grundy County. My fondest memory was our booth at the Beersheba Arts and Crafts fair using Alf's "Civil war operating table" to display our literature.

I have heard so much about what a great man and attorney Mr Adams was. I wish I had the pleasure of meeting him. I know he will be sorely missed by many. I do know his daughter and she is a class act.

Alf was a friend of mine thru the Earthman family and Beersheba. With his notepad in his pocket and his gentle demeanor he shared his wisdom and experience with me and I will surely miss him. God bless Alf Adams.
