"Daddy, it's still hard to believe that is has been 5 years since you made your transition. I think about you daily! Especially when I look at your Grandchildren's faces. There's not a doubt in my mind that you would love on them and spoil them more than Jay and I. Even though you're not physically here, I know that you are watching over us all. I could go on and one with so many memories and wishes. Just know that I always love you and continue to teach my children what you taught me. I love you Daddy!!!"

"So surprised to hear of the passing of my brother in the Lord and high school friend, Lancelot 'Wiley' Adams. Not only were we at school at the same time(1974-81),but also were part of the same School Challenge Squad. He was bright, confident,humble & helpful. My prayers to all."
"Wiley had a quiet confidence and assurance, a mischievous smile and an infectious laugh. He inspired so many of us to be the best we could be in our academics whilst enjoying the other departments of school life to the fullest."
"Adams was a legend in his own time and inspired many at Calabar by his mathematic genius and his gentle manner-a great guy ! Very sorry to hear about his passing-reminds us of how fragile & unpredictable life is and how short our time on earth is.... Palmam Qui Meruit Ferat !"
"Wiley as you were better known to us as, '74 - '81 at C-bar, a part of the Red Hills Crew, the fond memories of the too numerous paths where we crossed, Rest well my friend till we meet again. "To live in hearts we leave behind Is not to die". Thomas Campbell, "Hallowed Ground""

"Wiley was an brilliant mind yet extremely humble and jovial and yet took his academic work seriously. this is shocking news and yet in life we ought no to be. I pray for comfort for his family in this hour. we were school mates at Calabar"
"As shocking to me as it sad to us all, I will always remember how he ever inpired us with his quick thinking and sharp wit, while we were team-mates on the Schools' Challenge team. Great personality, great mind, great scholar! Condolences to his family. Rest well, Wiley!"
"I was truly saddened to hear of your lost. Even though I had not seen you guys in such a long time, I often think of the good ole days at Malone Memorial. I remember your bridal shower and the day you and Lance became one. May God give you strength during this difficult time."
"Lancelot/Adams/Wiley) was one of my best friends at Calabar. We were in the same class all the way through 6th form. Brilliant but at the same time having a great sense of humor and an enjoyment for life. Gone too soon!"
"Here Sir! Wiley you were a true Brethren who had time for any and everyone despite your brilliance. When I joined in 4th form Wiley was one of the boys who made me feel welcome in form 4S1.Walk good my friend. I salute you at the call of Calabar. Peace and Love to his family."

"Mr. Adams seriously one of the coolest parents back in High School. He always made jokes about me running track and never being able to catch my breath. Good times..He was awesome to know and will never be forgotten. May he rest in peace and watch over every last one of us."
"I will always remember the peaceful and humble spirit of Lance(Gary). He was always respectful, polite, and kind. Always soft spoken and gentle. Even if he didn't understand my tax methods he would say you are the expert. I will miss him, but I know he's in a better place."
"Lance was someone that loved unconditionally. An encourager, and the voice of reason. I thank God for placing him in my children and my life at the needed time. We will forever remember the kindness and love that he showed us.
To God be the glory for a life well lived!"
"LaJuan,you and your family are in our prayers"
"Elder Adams was a wonderful person. He was an example to all of what it meant to be a father and husband. The McGrew's will never forget the wisdom that he imparted into our lives, when we were members of OIC."
"He was,my dad,my coach,and someone i knew was there with advice if i ever needed it...me and jay and our dad shared a football brotherhood.I'd look in the stands and if i didnt see my dad there was mr.adams cheering for all his sons..he was an inspration and wondeful father."
"Lance was truly a big brother while I lived in Orlando. There was so much guidance & knowledge he poured in to me regarding business & personal values. I will forever be grateful for Mr. Lancelot Adams & his ability to just be a GREAT person. Always remembering my brother."
"For the time that I knew Lance, he was always gentle and his words were always kind! (Job 14) If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come."
"I had the privilege of living with the Adams family when I was in college. It was like living with the Huxtables :)Lance was my Orlando Dad. He was ever smiling, ever encouraging, and had a joy about him I'll always remember."
"We were schoolmates for years. I will always remember him for his brilliant but calm, humble demeanor and as a man of the highest integrity. Truly gone too soon but as much as we love him, God loves him more. May he r.i.p. and light perpetual shine upon him."

"I used to work with Lance, and then later I was his manager. We were brothers. His friendship and council was always treasured. Every Christmas and Easter he would send out a text with words for the occasion. I love learning he was called "Wiley" growing up. So fitting!"
"The first time I met Elder Adams he was teaching New Members class at OIC. He had a very sweet spirit. He knew the word of God and taught it well. As I became close to the family I could see he was a great Husband, Father and Friend. You will be truly missed. We Love You!"
"Thank you Lord for the opportunity to have met such a wonderful man of God. To his family: May God's presence and power guide and strengthen as you travel this road ahead. For we know that to be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord. We shall see him again. Love you."
