    I was very sorry to hear about Aunt Edie. I only remember meeting her twice in my life as we lived early years overseas. I don’t know my many cousins but would like to extend my deepest sympathy to them. On behalf of my dad William Adams who is currently in the VA Hospital, he also expresses his condolences.

    “A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds.” You will be forever remembered and missed grandma!

    Dear Family,

    We were so sorry to hear that Ede passed away last week. She was a very special and loving person and I was fortunate to be one of the older Adams cousins who knew her and Alex during their younger years when they were just beginning their family. Our Adams get-togethers are some of my favorite memories and they were always there to share in the fun. I know she will be greatly missed.

    Sending our deepest sympathy and prayers for comfort to each of you.

    Love, Gail and David Youngblood
