Florida Road Trip

Just returned from a road trip to Florida where we celebrated the life of Tim Adams, my brother-in-law who died too young at 63.

Recently retired after teaching school and coaching for 39 years, Tim was praised and mourned by more than 400 people who attended services at the First Baptist church in Gainesville.
