I met Adam at Erin and Nate`s wedding in beautiful St Thomas. I immediately felt a connection to him and that was before I knew of his illness. My impression of Adam was an easy going and down to earth individual who made the most of every moment. It was apparent that he cared greatly about his many friends at the wedding and he was loved by them all. When I saw him a few months later, it was like we were old friends. Adam had a warmth” about him tha I will never forget. I will miss Adam but I believe he will be watching over his “peeps”.-Cindy Erin`s GM”
