Saying goodbye

In the late afternoon of Thursday, May 15, a line of people walked somberly along Highway 173 North to a spot just south of the Bandera County Jail and Justice Center. Friends, relatives and classmates of the late Cody Adams, 18, of Center Point, gathered where the popular high school senior had been grievously injured in a head on vehicular collision on May 8. Adams died the next day at University Hospital in San Antonio. In a silent eulogy, participants laid personal items at a makeshift memorial, knelt down and observed a moment of silence. Then, just as silently as they had arrived, the crowd returned to the small community of Center Point, leaving behind tributes to their friend. Adams' fiancé, Erin Wilson, 19, was also injured in the wreck.
