Best friends and cousins

Shared by Aunt Corrie Lawson on November 23, 2011

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.

Field trip

Shared by Erica Hicks on November 19, 2011

Imogin had a way about her that made everyone she came in contact with feel special.  Whenever I went up to school to help, she would always give me a hug, a smile, or hold my hand.  It was impossible to have a bad day when you were in her presence.  One of the fondest memories I have is a kindergarten field trip I took with the class.  Imogin would always ask to sit by me on the bus:)  On this particular day, one of her classmates was extra sleepy.  Imogin became his pillow on the way to the field trip AND on the way home.  She never complained and always treated everyone with much love and respect.  She was so kind hearted  and never took one day for granted.

The world was a better place with you here.  Your legacy will forever live on through the loving kindness you blessed upon others.

I will miss you Imogin.  I will continue to smile and choose to be happy to honor your memory.

Love-Erica (Shayla and Rocco's Mom)

Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. ~1 Corinthians 13:7.

I will always remember your cute smile and everlasting fun loving personality. Be nice in heaven and have fun with your Mom.

Hugs forever...Alisha

Imogin I will never forget you, you always shared a smile with me everyday at school, so make sure you keep cracking your jokes to everyone in heaven!

Your smile, jokes and giggles will be missed...John



Riding the bus

Shared by Janet Malcik on November 19, 2011

One of our favorite games on the KinderCare bus is the ABC game (the one where you think of a name, place, and something to sell). The children always had a difficult time thinking of a name for the letter "I" until Imogin came along. Even though Imogin has not attended KinderCare for 2 years, the children still use her name when we get to "I". We will always think about our good friend Imogin when we play that game. We miss you Imogin! Love Ms. Janet & all of your KinderCare friends.

I was having a sleepover at Imogin's house one night.  The next day we went outside to play on the swings.  We raked up a huge pile of leaves in front of the swings.  We swung high and when we let go, we crashed into the pile.  I hit the ground so hard my bum ached for five minutes.  I had a great time with Imogin that day. 

I miss you.  Your best friend,

Imogin Aces Her Math Test

Shared by Amy Rush on November 17, 2011

By: Logan (Lolo) Rush

In October 2011, Mrs. Dickerson gave us a math test.  We were all nervous.  Imogin tried really hard at math.  On the day we got our graded tests back, Mrs. Dickerson, asked Imogin to go her and Mrs. Dickerson screamed.... "Oh, Imogin!"  "Everybody, do a round of applause for Imogin, she got a 100% on her math test!"

We were all cheering - it was the best day ever!

I will miss playing tag with you on the playground. 

I remember that you kept checking out the same BIG Recipe book everytime we went to the library so you could write the recipes down to try at home.  Now, your family has a copy the book - from Mrs. O'Grady.  

I miss are a fantastic girlfriend... Logan (Lolo) Rush
