Howard E. Adams and wife Mary Catherine Pitcher

This was the first Christmas they got to spend together in a long time. Due to having two homes and each spending time at each place with friends and family, they just could never seem to be in the same place at the same time. Thank GOD Christmas 2002 they finely got together here at Lanark Village, Fl. at their home. The above picture is them with a BEAUTIFUL Flower arrangement they bought me for Christmas. Howard passed away the following April at their home, with us present at the time of his passing. The crystal vase now hold some of Howard's ashes in another little crystal vase, the rest were taken out to sea and some to their home in Sharon, Conn. and the rest will be put to rest with his wife Mary at the time of her passing.
