Family Very Sorry for your loss. Adam was our customer from day one at the H & I cafe we owned for many. Adam would always come in for lunch every day at about two. He always did like the bean soup i made from scratch as it had lots of ham and onions as well as a special soup base and he always said give me some of those bean drippings..It was so funny as Harry from Paramount Liquors would always come in at the same time and seek free medical advise while doc was eating.Our little cafe was full every day as all liked my wife Dorothy .Whe i was present I always asked Harry as to why he did not eat at 24 th & Vinton. He said to dirty and bad food.We did have all the business owners from that 24 th St for sure as we were full all the time and Adam knew all and loved to talk to them and laugh.I always did have a laugh as I had to make that bean soup in five gallon batches all the time as sold so good along with our Chicken Noodle Soup..It is so funny to this day all the places to eat and how bad and poor most of the soups are..Adam will sure be missed as i did see him on the street some years past and we always had a laugh and talk.When one looks back at the 24 th street as to how it was many years back and the closeness of all the owners of business on that street it is sad the way all have changed. How all the car lot owners and BK employees ,funeral home employees all talked and got to gether and told of their lifes stories in our little H& I Cafe at 4318 So 24 th. To close Adam and th girls in the office were all missed as well of the hundreds of our regular customers when we closed the cafe.The little H & I was a meeting place for all for sure for many a year.
