Tony and Angela have been married for forty years and they have three children, Tony Adams, Jr., Rose Gray, and Michael Adams. Tony Adams, Sr. is the sole shareholder of a business and Angela is a stay-at-home mom. Their son, Tony, Jr., works for the business. The business, Adams Family Enterprises, has been a successful company but has been experiencing conflict among the senior management and a decline in sales. In addition to the business and their own personal lives, Tony, Sr. and Angela pay some of Angela’s mother’s expenses and Michael’s expenses. Recently, Tony Sr. has been noticing some health issues, but tends to put those matters to the side and focus more on the business matters at hand.
