Sandy, I am so sorry that I couldnt be there with you to give you a big hug. I have to take my mom to the eye doctor at that time in Springfield on the 18th. I will be thinking of you all day and praying for Adam, you and the rest of the family.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. RIP Adam.

Wow! Never thought this day would come. Always thought you would out live me. You always knew how to have a good time and you had a smile and a laugh that melted my heart. Granted, we got divorced and we had our differences over the years, but not a day went by that I didnt think of you. We grew some amazing kids and they look so much like you. Your smile and ur eyes, lol but ur laugh was one in a million!! You will always be loved and always have a special place in my heart. Until we see...
