I didn't know Mr. Adams very well. But he was really cool the couple of times that I met him. He was a really tough, but a laid back character. Never wanted to make a fuss or be a burden. I will cherish the few memories that I have of him. He was a very kind man.

Keith, Sjoerd, Paul, Lisa and Mary Catherine and families. I am so sorry for your loss I will always remember your father who had a heart of gold who shared it with all us "kids". Now he is with your mother and they are together again, like my parents. If I can do anything to help, please let me know. Take care, love you all.
