We were visiting in Kansas City the day Linza came home with his first paycheck. When he got off of the bus he saw my dad, his UNcle Bill, and he ran to greet my dad. When we sat down to eat his plate was upside down. He took his paycheck from his shirt pocket, laid it on the table, and turned his plate over. He was very proud. For some reason I thought of Linza this morning and Googled to find him. Unfortunately I was a couple weeks too late. William Wayne Curry, September 30, 2010 I am a volunteer at Meals on Wheels and Mr. Adams was on my route. I always visited him last so that we could have a chance to chat. He was such an amazing man full of amazing memories. He was always so pleasant and would always ask me about me and my family. Once, when my husband was out of work, he would always ask if he had found a job. My two girls sometimes would come to visit when they were out of school and at Christmas would sing him Christmas carols. He was so proud of his family, his son and daughter and the many grandchildren and great-grandchildren he had. There was always a new picture of someone to show me. I am so sorry for the loss of your great patriarch, but am so grateful he is at peace now and together with his wife, who he could never say enough about. May God bless him in heaven and may he comfort your family with so many wonderful memories. Daria Canton, September 24, 2010
