So sorry to hear of the passing (way too early) of Mr. Adkins. It is never easy to lose a loved one. But music has a way of helping us heal. I know because it was with the loss of my Mom, Dad, and brothers, Trace's music helped me get through some tough times. Praying for all the Adkins family. May God's spirit help you through this difficult time.
