    Ms. Pat & family Randy & I are sorry for your loss of Mr. Adam. It really shocked us. He really loved to bake & cook. Seems like we as neighbors were back & forth with something we had baked. We would see Mr. Adam going to get the mail & wave hello. The whole family will be in our continued prayers that God will comfort you each & everyone and keep you strong. God Bless You!!!!!

    So many stories. Where do I begin? He was always so kind and thoughtful. He loved to surprise my parents when he was in town. Pat. I don’t know if you were aware of this, but my father regarded him as his best friend. I always told people that as a child I saw him as a man’s man. He always smelled nice although I do not recall him ever wearing cologne. He carried himself well like my own father. How could I ever forget the two of you at our wedding reception 22 years ago presenting us with a solid walnut chest he made for us? He was so apologetic about having to make it without his tools. That chest is our most treasured possession. He carved the word “Love” on the front. A constant reminder that Love endures forever.
