(Re: “Bernie Adams: More ups than downs,” March 9, 2017) When my family first moved to the Brandon area my mom worked for President and Mrs. Adams in their home. I would go along a lot of the time.

     Mr. and Mrs. Adams were so gracious and kind.

     I received a gold bracelet with my name engraved as well as a beautiful red and white lace night gown and a pretty lace apron.

     ... President Adams made me laugh … often. A wonderful family we got to see an inside glimpse of. ...
