    We were so sorry to hear of Uncle Archie’s passing and are so grateful that we had a chance to visit with him at Mom’s birthday celebration last November in Savannah. While the Adams family was in New Jersey we were all close and saw each other often. when the family scattered, we lost that closeness but never lost the love we had for each other.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you during this time of saddness. Archie was a special person and we know you will miss him.
