This union was blessed with four beautiful children, three daughters, Debbie (Chester) Kibbey of Kehoe, Pam (Roger) Belford of Beechy Creek and Kay Adams of Grants, N.M.; and one son, the late Bob Adams. This love grew and flourished bringing forth 14 grandchildren; 31 great-grandchildren; and three great-great grandchildren.
