RIP bro, will always cherish the talks we had at Lincoln cemetery and the history you shared with me of this site. You loved taking care of the cemetery and making sure I did too. We both shared that passion. I'm still in a state of disbelief. Miss you bro, safe travels

Elwin was a wonderful neighbor and friend. I have been lucky to live next to the Adam’s for the past 10 years and treasure my time with him. He always looked out for me and made sure I was safe, and would always call when I left my garage door up. He always had ready advice for me for any topic and would give me this look when he knew I was being ridiculous! We shared many laughs over the years, I will miss him dearly. My condolences to Myra and the rest of the Adam’s family. May he Rest In Peace.

I extend my sincere condolences to Myra and the Adams family on the passing of my friend and classmate Elwin Adams. My memories of his amazing smile when visiting during the Reunion Weekend and the many conversations we would have about our adolescent years growing up in Springfield. My prayers for the family and friends during this difficult time. My friend is in a place where pain doesn't exist and glory is definitely in abundance. God bless friend and classmate.

I was always happy to see Elwin because I knew he would make me laugh. A great sense of humor, a terrific smile and just enough mischief in his eyes to make you eager to hear what he would say.

John and I are deeply saddened at the passing of Elwin. We lived in the same neighborhood as his family. We used to joke with Elwin that he was the Mayer of the neighborhood, he kept a close eye on his peers. We will miss driving by and catching him outside and chatting to catch up and joke with him. He will be strongly missed.

In Memory Those we Love remain with us, for Love itself lives on. Cherished memories never fade, because a loved one is gone. Those we Love can never be, more than a thought apart. For as long as there is a memory, they’ll live on in our heart. ~Author Unknown
