    Adam will be missed by those that knew and love him. I have many fond memories of my brother in law. He always had a smile for you. Adam was very friendly and caring, someone you would want to know and have in your life. I’ll see you again one day, when it’s my time to come home. Love you Adam, give Jesus a hug for me.
