To the entire Adams family. I’m sorry to hear about the passing of your mom, grandma, great grandma. I never met her but through Rita I learned how kind and loving she was and that her family meant everything to her. I hope you find comfort in all the beautiful memories you have made over the years. I will keep your family in my prayers as you walk this path. Crying is for the living, rejoicing is for dead. May your mom rejoice in Gods arms.
