Adam was the life of any party whenever he showed up anywhere, he never said “hello” it was always “What up G”.  He loved to laugh and joke, it was never a dull moment with him. Adam will be greatly missed. He was an amazing soul that could brighten up any room with just one sentence. Love knows no boundaries while Adam is no longer with us his beautiful spirit will always be around us. Please remember that those who love us never go away.
