ROSEBURG, Ore. - The tragic loss of three lives in the Lookingglass neighborhood of Roseburg has shaken up the entire community.
In particular, a close friend of 40 years grieves for them and wants them to be remembered for the special and giving people that they were.
Harlan Lee met the family at the Apostolic Faith Church where he's an assistant pastor. He knew both Robert and Donya, called Dondi by her friends, before they had even gotten together and he attended their wedding.
Lee said they were the most caring and giving people he's ever known. They were always making sure they were giving back in some way or another.
"Well they're outstanding people, I can say that, in every way. Anybody that ever knew them would say that."
They were very involved in their church, and Donya was known there for her dedication and musical talents.
He said he didn't know Kevin Adams, who's charged with the deaths of Tia, Amory, and Donya Adams, well, but he knew there had been occasional struggles at home.
Lee said the Adams had fostered another child in the past too. He believes it's another way that they can give back.
Many people have been asking Lee where they can donate to the family. If you visit ApolisticFaith.org you'll find a link where you can help the surviving members of the family in this time of need.
