    Our daughter, Amanda Colson, had the distinction of being Jack Adams’ only “legacy” [child of a former student] in Westport, so far as we know. Mr. Adams was her father, Bob’s, band director in Brodhead, KY, and later taught Amanda in Westport. She and Will Adams, Jack’s son, played the French horn together at Staples. That’s a totally unexpected and very special link, don’t you think?
