Kyle Adams Memorial Golf Tournament

A little over 3 years ago my 17 year old nephew Kyle Adams (#8 above) was killed in a auto accident. We were all devastated. He was a wonderful young man and we all miss him very much. Every year around this time there is a Kyle Adams Memorial Golf Tournament in remembrance of him. A lot of our family members got together a couple of weekends ago at my brother Kenny and his wife, Karen's (Kyle's parents) house to remember Kyle and to enjoy each others company. Kenny had a fish fry for all of us on Friday night out by the pool. The food was delicious. We had a surprise birthday/missionary farewell for my nephew Colson Healy. He will be entering the M.T.C. later this month. He will be serving in the Monterrey Mexico Mission. We're proud of you Colson! Saturday morning most of the men participated in the memorial golf tournament. My brother Kenny has a beautiful pool and the kids spent most of their time in it. Me and my boys went with Holly and the girls to the Kemah Boardwalk while the men golfed. We ate at an Aquarium Restaurant. (Cool!) Since we missed Cali's birthday a week earlier, she got to open her presents from Grandma and Grandpa. Later that day the kids had an Easter Egg hunt. On Sunday we all watched General Conference and had lunch and homemade ice cream (a General Conference family tradition) before we had to leave to come home. I wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks Kenny, Karen, and Kelley for having us and giving us all an opportunity to get together as a family to remember Kyle. We had a wonderful time!!

It sounds like you had a great time. I am sorry about the loss of Kyle. How tragic... but how wonderful that you have this golf tournament in remembrace of him.

congrats to Colson... I wish him the best of luck on his mission...

I know it was hard for you to leave Holly and the girls. It always breaks my heart to leave my out of state kids. HOw I wish we could all live close to each other.

Have a great week. Thanks for sharing our joy about Calan. Love, Lura
