My mother is a cousin of Mrs. Adams, as she is the daughter of Charles Ellison. My condolences to the family. Bonnie DeGrant Kinkead, Williamsburg, Iowa , January 22, 2014 Cindy, Your mom was such a funny and lovely lady. I often think about all the times we spent together and all the amazing meals your mom cooked for us. Seeing her smile again warms my heart and remind's me of the sweet memories our families share. We love you and are truly sorry for your loss. The blessing I find in this is that now we have both our mama's watching over us. Reina and Drew lewellyn-Moore, January 18, 2014
