Payshience (Tia) Melonie Rose Adams was born in Roseburg, Oregon, on June 10, 2007, to Mike and Karen. When she was 10 weeks old, she was lovingly enfolded into the Robert and Dondi Adams family. What a sparkler! She lit up the room from the very beginning!

Looking adorable in pink, she stole hearts wherever she went, and her smile and the twinkle in her eyes told you she was up to something!

Tia loved stuffed animals, and she had an extensive collection. She had a special fondness for a particular black cat with white paws named Tyler. Every stuffed cat she had from then on bore the name Tyler.

Leopard print was always in fashion as far as Tia was concerned. No matter what the occasion, church, school, or play, it made no difference. If it was leopard print, she wore it with joy!

Tia looked forward to family reunions and get togethers with extended family. Wherever there was a group of children to play with, Tia was there, joining in the fun. She loved to drive anything she was allowed to; if you wanted an ATV ride, Tia was your girl! But look out; she was likely to help you get caught up on your prayer life.

At Lookingglass Elementary, she loved recess. Tia was a monkey bar expert, and some suspect that she really was part monkey. In quiet moments, Tia loved to draw. It was one of the few quiet activities that could keep her attention for more than a couple of minutes.

Tia’s ultimate goal in life was to be a flying pink kitty. Depending on how things work in heaven, she just might get an opportunity!

Tia, Dondi and Amory were ushered together into the presence of their Lord on November 7, 2017.

But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not to come unto me; for of such is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 19:14
