    Mr. Adams was such a ray of sunshine . Ever time we saw him at St.Charles he radiated kindness and sweetness. We will miss seeing him and visiting with him. May he Rest In Peace. Prayers to his family for their loss.

    Mr Adams was my Walmart friend. I loved seeing him come in. He was such a joy and such a wise little man. And oh my goodness he loved his family. And was so delighted to let me know when the twins were born. He even brought pictures to show off. I know all his family will miss him. Cause my heart is broken that I won’t get to talk with him anymore. I will miss this sweet little man coming into my work place. God Bless you all. RIP Mr Adams!
