    Mr. Adkins was a lovely man, I remember watching him running at morning, that was so amazing at his age. He always looked so happy and I just thought: I want to be like Mr.Adkins at that age, always so kind, always smiling and being a nice neighboor to my godmother. I remember when he had dinner with our family, he wouldn’t stop talking about his wife and that was very cute. You could realize that he really loved her, he also told us how much he loved the ocean. It was just great to spend time with Mr.Adkins, one of the most kind men I have ever met From Costa Rica
