For our friend Bill Adams

   Bill Adams was a friend, coach and THE Master Gardener of Georgia and South Carolina. Unfortunately for all of us, he was killed Sunday afternoon while working in his yard.

   Valerie Martin, Master Gardener and Richmond County Extension Service secretary, said Bill always said when his time came he wanted to be in his garden.

   Although 72 years may seem like a long life, it was way too short for Bill. After giving so much to so many, he should have had many more years to garden, to teach and to share.

   This Garden Gnome is dedicated to our friend. Please send your thoughts about Mr. Bill. We will post all and run comments and photos on Friday's garden page. (The page is composed ahead of time so please write as soon as possible.)

   Arrangements are being made through Posey Funeral Home. Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday (sorry about correction) at the funeral home. Services will be at 2 p.m. Thursday. Burial will be in Hillcrest Cemetery.

This is a flower arrangement my buddy Sheila did to honor Mr. Bill and his family. All of the flowers came from his gardens. You can see it at the funeral home.
