Our hearts were saddened to learn of the passing of Aunt Wilda Adams in October 2010.  She was living  with her son, Will Bray Adams, in South Dakota at the time of her death.  She was the last of the original family members of grandparents Will and Loretta Adams of Cowan, Kentucky.  She was the wife of Daddy's youngest brother, Jody.  She lived the later years of her life in South Dakota but we corresponded by letter often.  She was a delightful person, and I loved getting her newsy letters. 

Our heartfelt sympathy to her family.  She will be missed.  Her daughter Judy said her ashes were scattered in Florida as were Uncle Jody's where they lived for many years after leaving Kentucky.  Both of them were school teachers in Kentucky.
