The heart of love is present

In hours we have spent

The days will last forever

The gifts you represent

Our hearts are filled with sorrow

And yet your smile still shines

Together for life's journey

Cut short by life's design

What gifts in life we gather

What joy in life we share

For you were but the "giver" 

Of love that's always near

Our precious son has left us

But shared a bounty here

Of life that can go on now

With love that was sincere

Love's window now is open

For all the world to see

Each life you gave a blessing

To every family

We'll miss you and we love you

With every brand new day

We hold on to tomorrows

With peace that comes our way

You gave to us a mountain

Filled with crystal streams

The joy of all our memories

Now captured in life's dreams

We'll hold you close forever

Your spirit always near

The love we feel unending

Through every single tear

So proud we were to have you

Within our life each day

You gave us precious moments

Forever they shall stay

We'll see you in the morning

When birds begin their song

We'll watch you as the sun sets

Your "love" lasts all life long.

Clay Adams, 18, died December 7, 2007 at
 Phoebe Putney Hospital in Albany, GA.
A graveside funeral service was held Monday, December 10,
 at 4 PM at Preston Cemetery in Preston with
Rev. Raymond Smith, Rev. Robert Orr, and Rev. Greg Kirk officiating. 
Clay was born August 1, 1989 in Columbus, GA to
Terry and Polly Holloway Adams.  He was a member of
Morris Baptist Church in Morris, GA. 
He was a May 2007 graduate of Marion County High School
 where he played baseball for 4 years and
football for 2 years, was a member of the Future Farmers
of America for 4 years and the Fellowship for Christian Athletes
 for 2 years.  He was a Senior Superlative, was voted
Class Favorite, Best All Around, and Most Popular. 
He recently completed the Electrical Linesman
Program at South Georgia Technical College.
He is survived by his parents; by three sisters,
 Nikki and Robert Bryant, Missi and Spence Grimsley,
 and Chrissi Adams.  By two nieces Skyler Bryant and
Addison Grimsley.  By grandparents Rev. and Mrs. Ed Holloway,
Evelyn Mays, Albert Adams, Mavis Sheets, and Helen Adams
and great-grandmother Edna Holloway. 

Clay in his death was the giver of life through organ donation and

nine people who were in need of these organs have been gifted them

through the love of  Clay and his family.


There is no greater  love on this earth than to have a meaningful

expression of  love than to share with others a gift that will bring

them new life. For Clay his life is over but for others their new life

has begun. And so it is through the window of love that life can

once again take flight.


Donations in memory of Clay may be made to

Marion County High School or Morris Baptist Church.


This page done in memory of Clay by

his cousins Lin, Jay, and MaryAnne Holloway. 


I offer my deepest condolences to the family of Clay

and want to let you know that his gifts to those nine

people have touched my heart. May his legacy of life

continue through the constant reminder of

the fact that his life shall go on.


God Bless You
