"As I only had the privilege of teaching Amanda, I only knew Adam as Amanda's "big brother." But, that was so indicative of who Adam was as a person, son, and friend. He had so many amazing qualitites, and I was grateful that I was able to get to know him through Amanda's eyes. The world is a smaller place without his presence, but we are all stronger and enriched for knowing him!"
"These messages are so comforting to our family. Thank you all for participating. Adam was my grandson and he loved you all. Me, too."
