I am so very sorry for your loss. Mom will really miss her good friend, who always came to see her regulary with a token gift from her garden. The visits she made to Mom meant alot to me, it just spoke of her true friendship with a very special lady. Mrs. Adams will be greatly missed by myself and Mom.
