    My heart is broken. I loved Adam and considered him my nephew. When he and I worked at St. Joseph he would come to my office to see me, and he would tell the receptionist to tell me that my nephew was there to visit. We loved laughing together. He and I would have “contests” to see who could get the most hugs from Isabella. He always won. She made sure of that! He and I had a “Tomato-off” one summer to see who could grow the best tomatoes. He ordered the seeds, we planted them and this time I won!! It was great fun sending photos back and forth of our progress. He was so ornery, but so sweet and kind. I am so sorry for all of his family and loved ones. I know it is a huge loss. It is for me. Love and prayers to you all.

    I just wanted to give my heartfelt condolences to the family of Adam. I was so sad to hear this awful news. I met Adam at the restaurant I work at in South Carolina when he came in to town to work. He would always make sure he came to see me, and was so sweet and kind every time I saw him. I loved him like a son, and always loved seeing his smiling face. Prayers to all of his family. May you Rest In Peace now Adam.

    I haven’t talked to adam since high school. But, he was one of my favorite people. Always had a smile, a joke, he could make me
    Laugh like no one else. Just a true light. You were such an awesome
    Person, and will be deeply missed. Prayers to your family…

    This is a kinda a poem. I knew Adam from Teen challenge and he showed me a lot:

    When times hurt and things were ruff you taught me how to live and not be a snuff. You were a free spirit that showed me life. Wasn’t the selfish type but showed the selfless light. Never showed your hurt but always have your worth. Your white and uncanny humor always outweighed the glumor. You always loved others and never judged another. When someone felt soon you eased the gloom. Adam buddy your life was cut short I wish I could have shared your hurt.

Leave a Condolence.
