We have so appreciated Adam's friendship through the years. His quiet, gentle demeanor communicated a strength of Godly character. He was always so welcoming and we easily felt at home in his presence. The world has lost another true gentleman and a man of God and, yet, heaven rejoices that this son has come home. We love this family and know that we support you in prayer at this time.
