    Adam will be forever missed. Adam had this twinkle in his eyes which made him so approachable and lovable. I will never lose the image of his smile and the twinkle in his . He loved you so much and you loved him so much. My heart hurts for your heart. Anthony and I will see you on Thursday and do what we can to support you always and forever. We love you Lisa.

Your family and friends love you and will do all that we can to share your burden. And Brooke and I are praying that by God’s grace…and with time, you’ll find that God can carry your burden completely, comfort you, give you hope and strengthen your heart to persevere, when you need it most in the days ahead. (Psalm 34:4-7, 18; Isaiah 40:28-31; 2 Corinthians 1:3-5)

    My heart ❤️ is with you and your family at this time. There are no words that I can find to bring you comfort right now.

We will be here for whatever you need from us at anytime. 😘🙏🏽🙏🏽

  • From the moment I met Adam to the day we lost him, he was always the same amazing, kind-hearted young man. He was always positive and truly one of the nicest people I have met. I enjoyed working with him and getting to know him better than ever. He is always laughing and enjoying his life. He helped clean my shoes and I enjoyed some friendly competition in basketball with him. He will forever be in my heart.

  • Dear Lisa: You are one of the most courageous people I have ever met. My memory of Adam will always be the absolutely beautiful little boy I met when we had lunch. He was exceptional, as was the love shared by you both. Please know that I am here. If you need someone to just sit with you, please let me know… any time, no matter when or where. All my prayers for you both.

  • I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your son. I can still remember how you would share his accomplishments with us. Please know that you are in my prayers. Sending you lots of love and peace.
