My mother called me last night to inform me that Thelma had passed. I regret that I didn't know her better, but the memories I have of her from my childhood were all good. I remember my dad (David Adams) taking us up for 2 visits in the winter and one in the spring. I remember the farm...the last memory I have of Thelma was calling the home next door to the farm (I was playing with my cousin next door across the field) saying you need to bring Chris home so he can eat dinner. I forget who it was driving the snowmobile but I remember going so fast at looking at the speedometer and it was past 100 mph. I wanted to do it again! To all my family up there I express my sympathy to all of you. If you're ever in Austin look me up! I love you all...missing Dad a lot these days...
