Ms. Adkins was the dearest friend to my mom Wilma Mason and the best babysitter/friend/ 2nd mom to her girls. So sorry for your loss. Her wings were ready but we were not. 💔💔💔

What a special woman. A devoted mother. A very proud Catholic. I will treasure my memories of her...and sitting with her on her porch swing. My thoughts and prayers to you as you grieve the loss of your precious mother.
