This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Imogin Grace Adams, 9, born on February 20, 2002 and passed away on November 14, 2011.

Imogin Grace, so full of love, so full of life was tragically taken from this world this past Monday, November 14.  She will always be remembered for her loving nature.  She was always looking to snuggle up on the couch or give loving words when needed.  Imogin was so compassionate and caring towards everyone around her, especially her younger sisters.  When both her sisters Kyla and Alannah were born she would be seen caressing their soft skin, holding them adoringly, or softly kissing their foreheads.  She truly had a mothering heart.  Imogin was also so full of life.  She would always light up a room with her bright smile and gentle spirit.  Her ability to laugh at anything, whether actually funny or not, made her such a ball of joy to be around.  You couldn't help but smile and laugh when you were around her.  Now all we have left is the memories of these things in our heart...we will forever remember her.

Imogin Grace Adams is survived by her father Kyle, stepmother Crystal, and sisters Kyla and Alannah.  She also leaves behind her grandparents Jay and Linda Adams and Stan and Vicky Duggan, as well as many loving great grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, classmates, and friends.  She was dearly loved and will be dearly missed!

For those wishing to send condolences you can send them to: 13750 W. 76th Cir. Lenexa, KS 66216.

For those wishing to give gifts or meals, we simply ask that you choose to donate in monetary forms to Kyle, Crystal, Kyla, and Alannah to help with unexpected funeral costs and the hospital bills that Alannah will be accumulating.  There are 4 ways to give:  First, Kyla and Imogin's school has been so kind enough to create a fund at People's Bank at: 7579 West 151st Street Overland Park, KS 66223.  You can mail in your donations to the bank at that address written out to the Adams Family Fund.  Second, you can bring it directly to the bank.  Third, you can bring your donation to Lakewood Elementary School Office.  Fourth, you may also mail your donations directly to 13750 W. 76th Cir. Lenexa, KS 66216, with checks made out to Kyle or Crystal Adams.  No amount of money replaces the pain and grief during this time, but it just will allow Kyle and Crystal the grace to minimize their attention on areas they don't need to focus on and maximize their attention where it needs to be, with Kyla and Alannah.

Thank you for everyone's support and love.  Continue to pray for those dealing with these losses and for the Adams family as they attempt to move forward.  Please write a note to Imogin or express your condolences below.  I also encourage you in the midst of tragedy to write a funny story or memorable moment about Imogin under the stories icon at the top of the page.  We will always remember you Imogin Grace, you were a blessing to this world.

The Visitation for Heidi and Imogin is set for Saturday morning at Cross Points Church (6824 Lackman Road Shawnee, KS 66217) from 10AM-12PM.  The Funeral Service will proceed it from 12PM-1:30PM.

My dear sweet Imogin how much we all miss you. You were such a bright shinning light of love and happiness. Your sisters and I miss you talk about you everyday. When you were born that was the best day of my life. I was so proud to be your daddy. Part of my heart and soul is missing but I know one day we will be joined again.

Still loving you my Imogin,

There is a time to press forward and there is a time to remember...Today I remember my sweet little niece Imogin. Beautiful Girl, I miss you! The legacy of life that you left will be engrained in our hearts. I wish you were here to meet your baby cousin coming, but you just keep enjoying your dancing and we will see you soon enough! Love you with all my heart...Uncle Nick!

Thinking of you on this day. Horrible news was delivered to our classroom last year, but we still remember you and think of you often despite that terrible tragedy. Today your classmates and I will be tying ribbons on YOUR tree outside my classroom door. We will be thinking of your beautiful smile, precious heart, and how much we miss you.

This is Kiley Peterson I just wanted to say that I haven't forgotten about sweet Imogin. We celebrated her birthday by saying a prayer for her.. I hope she had a good birthday in Heaven. She always filled the classroom up with smiles and I miss her. I will continue to say prayers for her and I will never forget her.

There once was a red haired girl named Imogin.
I remember her smile. I remember her laugh.
I remember how fiercely she defended sissy.
I remember how she loved her mommy and daddy too.
I remember how like a magnet she was drawn to any babies face.
No holding back her love, her laughter, her joy.
I remember Imogin. I will always remember Imogin.

I miss you every day in Mrs. Dickerson's class. You always made me happy when I worked with you.  I did not realize it at the time, but when you came and gave me a big hug the Wednesday before the accident, that it would be my last memory of you..... it is forever etched in my mind! Thank you, love bug! Love, Mrs. Steen

Imogin was in my first grade class, but she never forgot to stop by for a smile, hug, and "hello" as she continued through Lakewood. Her smile was contagious! She will be missed, but will remain in my heart! What a precious little girl! I feel blessed to have known her! Love you, sweet girl!
Posted by Kelsey Peterson on November 27, 2011
I will never forget meeting Imogin in 3rd grade this year. She was always loving to everyone and never had a sad face, she always had a smile. I will never forget that she wanted to have a playdate with me, I wanted to too b/c I thought she was so nice. I miss Imogin in class and I hope that she is having fun in heaven.

You will always hold a special place in our hearts as the first girl grandchild in the Adams' family, . Rylie and you were only 4 months apart and the best of friends and cousins. I will miss taking you everywhere with us, sleepovers, beiber fever, fashion shows, singing taylor swift, or the time I took you to South Dakota for uncle nick's wedding. I miss you SO much and love you!

I have many wonderful memories of playing with your "Mema" when we were little girls, as she is my cousin, so I know you were a very special little girl who will be missed by many. However, I know you are in heaven playing with some other special friends of mine, Nathan-forever 8 and Cory-forever 9.  Please say "hi" for me

I can remember Imogin coming in every morning for breakfast with the biggest smile on her face just excited to be at school with her friends. She always had a story to tell that would make your day. I miss you Ms. Imogin.
Posted by Marcia O'Grady on November 18, 2011
Sweet Imogin, I was so tickled to watch you check out that Paula Deen Cookbook week after week, and all so you could copy the recipes to cook for your family. That's what makes you so unique, always thinking of how to make others happy. You are truly a special angel and i'll miss your precious smile. God Bless you sweet girl.   love, Mrs. O'Grady

This little girl was my cousin's granddaughter, who I didn't know, but from what I have read about her...we should try to be an example of how she was and lived. This is probably what she would have wanted of us all. I'm sure she is watching us and will truly be missed.

“Because God is never cruel, there is a reason for all things. We must know the pain of loss; because if we never knew it, we would have no compassion for others, and we would become monsters of self-regard, creatures of unalloyed self-interest. The terrible pain of loss teaches humility to our prideful kind, has the power to soften uncaring hearts, to make a better person of a good one.”

Dearest Imogin,
You touched so many peoples' lives. You always made people laugh. When others were sad you helped them feel better. I love you and I will never forget you! 
Your best friend, Leah

It has been several years since Imogin attended KinderCare. My favorite memories of her are sitting with her and drawing. She was a good little artist and very creative. She loved her family very much and talked about them often. You are all in my prayers. I am so glad to have known Imogin. She was a very special child.
Posted by Rachel Wassall on November 18, 2011
Imogin Grace, we will truly miss your infectious smile, sweet voice, and great sense of humor! I can still hear your giggle...Jesus must be tickling your feet as you sit at His. We are so grateful for the wonderful 9 yrs we had with you. We find comfort in our grief by knowing we will see your radiant face again someday. Until we meet again...

I remember meeting Imogin for the first time in 1st grade. I was also her classmate in 2nd grade. She always had a smile on her face. I am very sad that she is no longer with us. I will miss her smile and laughter.

Those of us that are fortunate enough to remember our first true friend never forget those first memories and feelings of love, compassion, laughter, tears, bumps, bruises and no doubt some degree of mischief. Imogin, you ARE that first true friend to Rylie. She loves you SO much! We all do and I am so very grateful that the Lord has placed you in all of our lives, hearts and minds.- JD

One of the favorite times of my day at Lakewood was walking into Imogin's 3rd grade classroom where her adorable, mischievous and spunky smile brought sunshine into the room and into my life. I will miss you every day and miss your hugs of love.......Love, Mrs. Steen
Posted by Stephanie Manes on November 17, 2011
Imogin, precious I wish I had known you better. It's obvious though that you were a sweet, loving, funny, beautiful redheaded girl, who loved and cared for her sisters more than anything. That love and care you nurtured Kyla and Alannah with will carry on in their life's and never be forgotten...Neither will you!

"We love you Imogin!" We will never forget the times we got to spend with you. To watch you in the backyard with Will and your sisters were a blessing to my family. We will never forget the last dinner we had with you and helping with the fish fry. May God bless your family and we will cherish the time we spent with you. 
Love Greg, Jean Ann and Will!

Imogin, your were such a loving little girl. First crawling up on Great Grandpa Will's lap and as the years went by, you always took time to greet us. Great Grandma Ilene particulary enjoyed the time we had together visiting and you serving me a cold drink jurt like a real little lady all grown up at your Dad and Crystal's wedding. We love you.

I met Imogin while teaching at LKE. Although she was not in my class, she would stop in to visit my birds and hamsters. Imogin greeted everyone everyday with a smile and it was easy to like her. Her memory will stay alive forever because so many people love her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this most difficult time.

Sweet little Imogin. You were such a thoughtful, kind little girl. So full of joy. The memory of you that will stay with me is of your radiant smile when you were standing up as a junior bridesmaid at your daddy's wedding. You were so beautiful and so honored to be up there. We will miss you and love you!

I will never forget meeting you in Kindergarten and was so happy that we were in the same 3rd grade class. Love your friend, Logan ("Lolo Rush")

We met Imogin one night when she came to our house with Tyanna to watch "Up". You could tell instantly what a sweet girl she was by the way she patiently played with my, then, 4yr old daughter. Such a happy little girl. May God grant you peace.

Oh sweet little Imogin Grace, where do I begin with my stories about you? I really wanted to speak at your funeral and share some happy, funny stories about you, but knew I wouldn't be able to keep it together enough to do so.

You were born in 2002 and before that we hadn't had a girl in the Adams' family since 1977. We were all excited to have a girl in the family after so many boys. You were born in Febuary and shared a birthday month with me. I was pretty excited about that! 4 months later, your cousin Rylie arrived, who is my daughter. Rylie is an only child so we had you over all of the time. We took you lots of places, including South Dakota to Uncle Nick's wedding. You and Rylie played in the back seat the entire time. I have fond memories of taking you swimming, hosting sleepovers, going to Deanna Rose, etc. I remember one time you were over at our house playing with rylie. I was listening to you two play and you guys were playing "house."  You were the doctor and rylie was giving birth. It was a pretty long labor and quite painful and dramatic. You played the doctor well and calmed down your patient. You even encouraged her to nurse the baby after it was born. I was laughing so hard, around the corner watching you two. You loved taking care of people, so I wasn't surprised that you were playing this with Rylie. You always had a mothering nature about you with babies or younger children, especially your sisters. Mema has a glass doll at her house that she made and you loved to hold it. You were really the only grandchild that ever asked to. You would hold that doll and rock it for a long time before having to gently return it. You loved holding that glass doll!

You also loved animals. We used to have an alaskan malamute that was 5 times the size of you and rylie, were when you were little. Our dog was very gentle with all children. You were the only one that she ever nipped at. You were upset and crying because your feelings were hurt, more then anything. I asked you why she had nipped at you and you explained to me how you were just trying to feel her eyeballs! It had never occured to you not to poke your little fingers in the dog's eyes.

Another memory I have is going to mema and bepa's for many many holidays, birthdays or family functions. One time, when you and rylie were only 2 years old, we were all visiting downstairs and heard the bath water running upstairs. We couldn't figure out why the water was going. We went upstairs to check and you girls were stripped down to your diapers and had decided to take a bath. It was hilarious and we never did find out whose idea it was :)

You also loved to open a new soap wrapper in mema's bathroom everytime you came over. That was your "thing" that you would do. Well one time you shared this with rylie and you girls came up with the great idea to open the entire Sam's pack of soap bars and line them all up on mema's bathtub. Mema thought it was funny and said she will be clean for a long time!

As you got older, you and rylie started to really like music. You would always sing in the backseat of the car together. You loved High School musical, Hannah Montana, Taylor Swift and all the songs to the movie Hair Spray. One day you devised a plan to start a band together. The plan was to have "band practice" at your house every Monday after school. The only problem was that you BOTH insisted on being the lead singer!

In September of this year, we all went to the Taylor Swift concert together at Arrowhead Stadium. It was Kyla and your first concert and you guys had so much fun. I am so glad that I got to share that memory with you, Kyla and your mom. It had been a while since we had seen all of you and it was a fun night.

The last time I saw you was on Halloween, just 2 weeks before you passed away. All 10 of the Adams' grandchildren have a tradition of going trick-or-treating together at mema and bepa's house. You and Rylie were so excited to get started that night but I insisted on taking pictures before you went out. I'm so glad I did because I have wonderful memories of that night.

Life will never be the same without you and we miss you like crazy! I can still hear your voice saying, "Aunt Corrie, when can we have another sleepover at your house?" I love you and miss you silly Imogin! My only comfort is knowing that I will see you again in heaven.
