"Adam, missing you today and everyday my friend."
My dear friend, it is now 3 years that you have left us ...
Although we had lost contact, you were always close to me and in my heart
I call your name often, as I named my son Adam... I spent the weekend with him, as I do once a fortnight, and whilst he was telling me about his new found passion for rap and mixing, your memory and to my mind
I recall always the Christmas Holidays I spent at your home, with your family welcoming me in its harms and making me feel really at home
At the time life was not easy, as my parents were going through a rough patch
You gifted me with the best Christmas present you could and from then our friendship became something more
I have a lot of images in my head, of you at the turntables at a friend's house, of us cruising around in moped, crossing the smallest rising bridge in the world, going to the beach, taking time to talk to cute girls at discos... And the steak hums...
So many laughs , so many good moment
You'll be with me forever Adam, and I keep feeling so sour about losing you
Please, from wherever you are, take time to look after your family and loved ones my friend
We all miss you, buddy..."
"I remember the years at Sevenoaks School at the International Centre and to know you are not anymore with us the world is not the same!"
"Thinking of Adam's infectious laugh and his fierce intelligence today, x T"
"Happy Birthday Adam. Thinking about you today on your birthday. Wish you were here."
"Happy 40th Bum - we miss you terribly."
"I had a nice visit with Esther yesterday She spoke so lovingly about her grandson Adam"
"Live a good life and in the end, it's not the years in the life, it's the life in the years. Rest in peace my friend."
"Still such sadness on the utter waste of such a beautiful life. Adam, you will always be remembered with such love by those who knew you. My thoughts and love with Peter, Nancy and Julia. Your smile melted everyone."
"Remembering you Adam today and on many others. And sending ongoing strength and love to your family."
"Adam, a Year has gone by since you left.
Today my heart is sour.
I miss you my friend."
"I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Adam thru working with Peter. A shy, quiet boy found his way and became a thoughtful, caring, brilliant young man. Adam your family loved you so. I know you are now at peace. Peter, Nancy, Julia I hope the memories of Adam bring you some peace.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die"
"I knew Adam as a first-year student in my constitutional law course at Osgoode Hall. He was a wonderful student - smart, perceptive, imaginative, curious - with a bright future ahead of him. I am so sorry to hear of his tragic passing. My condolences to his family and friends."
"Adam, I'll never forget your smile. So sad that you are gone."
"Peter and family - this is a wonderful tribute to Adam's memory. I didn't have the pleasure of knowing him personally, but I knew him through Peter and know what an incredible person his son was. I love this (slightly amended) quote:
"Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, of
glory in the flower, We will find strength in what remains behind".
With caring thoughts,
Jennifer, family and team"
"Adam, We were close buddies for a short time in the scheme of things, but that time was precious to me. I met you and felt I had something in common with you that I didn't with other people. So we bonded. Our lives changed and we lost touch. I ran into you and it felt so good to see you after so long. I won't keep wishing I had given our chat more of my time. No way would I have known it would have been the last time I would see you in person. But, I will see you again. Of that I am sure! You continued on your journey to be a scholar and I got married and had a baby and took a local job. But I always have fond memories of our talks sitting in the car in a rainstorm, watching the girl with the pearl earring on DVD in St. David's, cruising in the boat and sharing and listening to your music. At a time when I felt lonely, you made sure I wasn't alone. When I needed a friend, you were there. You were there playing your music on my first date with my now husband to! So I am grateful to you for providing the vocal backdrop for our romance. I will miss your sweet smile, your sense of humor, your individuality. I pray one day we can 'groove' to your tunes in heaven. My comfort and prayers go out to your Mom, Dad, Sister and rest of the family. I pray to God that they will find peace until they see you again. Love you man. T"
"Adam's Spirit is warm and inviting, his smile-contagious! I felt comfortable in my skin around Adam, his non-judgemental ways allowed me to say what I felt or behave from my little, so often conventionally unacceptable. Adam was determined to make a difference. His humility and compassion for others are extraordinary measures of his character. I am forever grateful for our friendship. Rich"
"To Adam and family,
"We encounter God's small voice in the soft breeze" (Henri Nouwen). In my experience, Adam, Julia, Nancy, and Peter opened their home and hearts to all of God's people. I wish you peace and love at this difficult time.
In my prayers and my thoughts, Christine Rhodes (Schneider)."
"Adam I really only knew you through your dad and from my son Wesley. My heart goes out to your dad, mom and sister. I think of them often. They love you so much.Your dad was always talking about you. He was so proud of you because you had a brilliant mind and like him, you were a craftsman too. You are now a star in the sky. Peace be with you Adam"
"So sorry to hear of Adam's passing. I'll remember him as a good time guy. Always had a great story to tell, happy to share his Black Seal rum and rarely without a smile on his face. My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. With much love, Tom"
"Adam. You were my best-friend, you are my best-friend : that will never change. You were like a brother to me. Your warmth, kindness, generosity of self and spirt; were precious and rare. You lived your life with dignity, humility, passion, an open heart, and a love for others ; I was truely humbled and honoured someone as magical as you chose to be my friend. I miss you mate. Love you"
"Peter & Nancy,
Sylvia and I have never meet Adam but I can only guess the pain
parents go thru in a time like this. We are so sorry.
We will say a prayer for Adam on Saturday.
Bernard & Sylvia"
"As new arrivals to Bermuda in 1983, our family was blessed that one of the first friendships Andrea made was that of Adam and blessed again when those two rascals dragged our two families together. We weren’t fortunate enough to know that handsome man you became so for us you are always that beautiful little boy. It is a privilege to have known you, Adam. Sorry it couldn’t have been more."
"Adam, the world is a poorer place without you. You have always held a special place in my heart since we all watched a growing friendship develop between you and Andrea. Who could resist your devilish impish grin? We haven’t seen you for many years but I know you grew into a fine young man, and none was prouder of you than your father. May God hold you in the palm of his hand always."
"Sad to know Adam is gone. I met him once and chatted about Latin cinema he was studying then. Smart and lovable spirit. This is my tribute to him."
"Our love and thoughts are with Nancy and Peter and family. We will say a prayer for you and Adam this Saturday from afar.
With all our love.
James Masters and Carol Wood"
"I am so sorry to hear of this terrible loss. My condolences to his entire family during this difficult time. Sending love to you all. Xo"
"I only met Adam once, but I was struck by his sincerity, love of family and desire to make the world a better place. I sincerely hope Adam's life and his passing represent a memorial that will help others and make a real difference."
"Peter and family, whilst i never met Adam, i was shocked to hear the news and have no doubt if he was anything like his Dad - was a great person - surely confirmed by the tributes already given. you are in my prayers."
"I was in awe of Adam's Iron Maiden posters when I was about 13! And we had some good times working together at Castle Harbour hotel. I remember Adam to be a terrific all-round guy. My heart goes out to his family."
"Ciao Adam, see you in Heaven."
I am sorry to learn of the tragic news of the loss of our friend Adam, I will pray for him and his family. The IC was a place of lifelong friendship and this year we lost 2 friends Adam and Alessandro Pasotto. My condolences to the family."
"The wheel of time turns and ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. One lives in the hope of becoming a memory. Thank you Adam for always being true to yourself. Thank you for the beautiful music you played us. And thank you for bringing so much joy to our lives. You will always have a seat at my table. I will never forget you my friend. I love you brother. Rest in Peace."
"Adam, I have only met you a few times, and know you as a fine, bright young man...however, I feel I know you very well as I have lived through your many accomplishments through your parents who always were so proud to share! You have made our lives richer. May you rest in peace and may we continue to feel your spirit and presence as you look down on us. God Bless."
"The only time I boxed was against Adam, when we were both at Saltus. I'll never forget that night. I lost touch with him but we reconnected a few years ago on facebook, and he told me he was studying critical theory. He was such a mischievous, charming character with a quick wit and a keen intelligence. I was shocked to find out he was gone. I imagine he's grinning wherever he is."
"Hey Adam, I've known you since we were shorter than the long grass at Port Royal. I still remember when we were 5 and decided to prick our index fingers with a pin and then pressed them together. From that moment we declared ourselves blood brothers. We have always been close even though at times we have been miles apart. I love you man and hope you are happy and in good company in heaven."
"Adam, we met in IC and became best friends. You welcomed me at Xmas in your home when mine was a battlefield... My best Xmas ever, roaming the island on mopeds, dancing the nights away... You pierced my ear washing it up with Vodka and an ice cube... We were so total at the time. I will miss you my friend, but never forget you. My son's name is Adam, and he was born in 2004. RIP soul mate"
"Adam, I have not seen you since high school but I remember you always having a smile on your face and just being wonderful. I am so sad to hear of your passing. Rest in peace."
"Adam, I feel so blessed to have been able to share so many great memories with you throughout our years growing up together. From music, to DJing, to turning our parents crazy together, and all the good times we had. All I can say is that you will be truly missed, and for now just keep the music spinning in heaven mate, till we see each other again! RIP Adam. Love you. Friends forever. x"
"Adam - I have nothing but the fondest memories all through my life of you from Port Royal, to nights in town as teens and adults. You always had time for me. A kind word. Always something. You were special because you walked your path and I walked mine and whenever we criss-crossed it was good. I can still see your smile the last time we saw each other x"
"Adam, my world is forever changed. I miss you and think about you every day. There's nothing I want more right now than to share a smile, share a laugh, share some ice cream :) I love you. x"
"Adam, no words can describe the pain I feel. This is by far the hardest thing I have ever had to face in my life. I can't even begin to describe how much I miss you and I know and don't expect this feeling to ever go away. The hole in my heart will never heal however, I have faith the pain will gradually ease. I am honored to be your sister. Rest in peace. I love you."
