If there was one family I admire it is the Adkersons. As a close friend to most of the Adkerson clan I rejoice in knowing that we will all see Mr. Adkerson in Eternal High Places. I will never forget the road trip from Brownsville Texas to Nashville or my trip to Israel. I must say that if there was ever a television sitcom. Mr. Adkerson would be Father Knows Best, Mr. Cleaver and Mr. Brady all rolled into one. My prayers go out to the pillar of the family, Loyce knowing that she has been so strong during this time. May the Lord give everyone the strength to know that Mr. Adkerson is more than memories but a man of outstanding faith. Let Him who makes peace in the heavens, grant peace to all of the Adkerson Family. And let us say, Amen.

I wish to extend my deepest sympathy to the Adkerson family in the loss of Mr. Adkerson who was a wonderful neighbor for many years. I have many fond memories of attending numerous block parties sponsored by he and his lovely family. He will be greatly missed by all who knew this kind man. Sincerely- Jim Hornberger ( Nashville, Tennessee)

Remembering with thanksgiving John's devotion to our Lord Christ and his love for our Lord's Church; the croquet games, board games, songs sung, and walks at Hillwood High School.

I am so sadened to learn of the passing of one of my dearest friends. John and I met at Fort Knox, Kentucky, January of 1955. We were extremely close during the two years of Military Service and have remained close friends for the past fifty-eight years. He was a brilliant mind, a devout Christian, loved humor, and loved to talk about his Army years. He was a great influence upon my life. I loved him like a brother. I shall surely miss him. To the family, please find peace in knowing that John was a mentor/counselor to all he met. We are better for having known him. He was so much fun. Rest in peace, my soldier, until we meet again. Not in the 10th Infantry Division, but, in the ranks of Heaven.
