Words don't really suffice.
Sometimes you meet a person and they stick in your memory. Maybe it's just their strength of character or their humanity or their obvious wisdom or possibly just their self-deprecating sense of humour.
Maybe it's just your sense that you would perhaps feel very fortunate having that person as your next door neighbour.
I met Ms. Adams only once in June of this year. She sat quietly in the next chair over while I knelt and visited with my mother-in law Dorothy for 20 minutes or so.
When I was introduced to Ms. Adams later that afternoon she observed as to her impressions about what she had overheard while sitting beside Dorothy.
We had a wonderful conversation. Over the balance of the afternoon I came to realize why I was so impressed with her children and grandchildren. Ms. Adams was a matriarch who obviously had a very significant and positive effect on her family.
As I said words don't suffice - I offer my very sincere condolences to all her family and friends.
