- Goldie Caudill Adams - Source) Our loving mother, grandmother and great
grandmother, Goldie Caudill Adams, age 83 of Jeremiah, Kentucky went to be with
our dear Lord and Savior on October 7, 2005 at the Knott County Nursing Home.
Mommy had been sick since 1998 because of strokes. We knew that she wouldn’t
have wanted to live that way. She wasn’t able to do anything for herself after
the last few years of her life.
Mommy was born on November 27, 1921 in Letcher County, Kentucky. She was the
daughter of the late Hisey and Polly Ann Adams Caudill.
Mommy loved going to church when she was able to go. On September 6, 1998 Mommy
became a member of the Dixon Memorial Church. Not only did she love her church,
Mommy loved to work on her quilts in the winter and to raise a garden in the
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Mose
Adams, and two sons, one infant, Donnie Wade Blair, and Jimmy Lane (Jake) Adams.
Mommy was survived by her children: Ray Dean and Dorisea Adams of Blackey,
Kentucky, Dennis Gene and Jo Ann Adams of Prestonsburg, Kentucky, Sonja and
Lindell Begley of Hazard, Kentucky, Gary Wayne (Buck) and Debbie Adams of
Martinsville, Indiana, Deborah and Tommy Yonts of Abbeville, South Carolina and
Danna and Benjamin Smith of Jeremiah, Kentucky. Mommy was also survived by 18
grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren and a host of family and friends.
Mommy, we know that you’re in God’s care now, but there isn’t a day that goes by
that we are not missing you. But, we also know you wouldn’t want to be on this
earth the way you were. We think about you every day and all your funny little
sayings that we now catch ourselves saying. Mommy, we look forward to the day
that we can be with you and our dear Lord and Savior. We love you so much and
will always miss you. But thank God above, we will always have “Precious
Memories” which we know was your favorite song.
The Broken Chain
We little knew that morning that
God was to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you;
you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you
the day God called you home.
You left us Precious Memories,
your love is still our guide,
And, though we cannot see you,
you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken
and nothing seems the same,
But, as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.
From your children, grandchildren,
and great grandchildren.
We love you with all of our hearts.
