         My Grandma Mary will be missed dearly. She was a beautiful, caring, and loving grandmother. She had a great sense of humor and I smile when I think of all the times she made me laugh. I thank her most for being a great example of how to be a good Christian person. I love you Grandma and I'll see you in heaven one day!

         Mamaw was a very sweet soft spoken lady (except when Papaw picked on us) that I will always remember and know she is watching over all of us as we continue to teach our children (her great grandchildren). Let's continue her sweetness, stories, and memories. I love you forever Mamaw. Your granddaughter, Isa.

         Aloha Everyone,

    Jan, Bonnie, Patty and Cheryl, thank you so much for making this a wonderful tribute to Mary.

    Isa and Luana has relayed back to us what kind of a memorial it was and they were very happy to be around our families.

    Wish we could have been there, looking forward to more pictures and hopefully a copy of that presentation the funeral home had during visitation. I know Kalima will appreciate it very much. He comes home to Becky today.

    Mahalo and we love you,

         Mary C. Adams was my grandmother. She was a very elegant, beautiful, sweet, and kind lady. She always smelled good and looked good wherever she went, even at home. She was such a humble person; she never put her wants and needs before those of others. That is something I want to carry on in my life, in memory of my grandmother and the values she portrayed. I liked when she would "count sheep" with us at night. She once told me that she loves the song "Beneath the Old Rugged Cross". My grandfather called her O.W., for Old Woman. She will be missed.
