I will miss Jim stopping by the office (Heartland Realty) to chat with me. He always made me laugh with some story from way back. Really will miss him. Libby

I have known your father since we were about 5 years old.We grew up in a small community in Patterson, Mo. We went to High School & played basketball together.
I had a good visit with him about 3 weeks ago. He was a very good friend and I will miss him. Floyd Reed, Steelville, Mo.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Jim Senior. I am thankful that he welcomed my mother and I into the family when we first moved to St Louis. His first words to me were that I can call him Mr Adams or Jim...but never Grandfather (I guess he was too young for that). He gave me my first job (as a bell hop working for tips at the hotel on Lindell) and my second (helping with the vending company during my summers). I really enjoyed the family gatherings at the holidays. Even though we grew apart (my mom and Jim Jr divorcing and my joining the Army)I will always remember the good times. Mr Adams....you will be missed.
Cindy and Sandy...my thoughts and prayers are with you. Please accept my condolences. Feel free to contact me anytime (marathon_runr@yahoo.com). Love, Craig
