"Those who believe in the Lord do not die, yet they live forever"!!

My brother Adam was only 22 when he died unexpectedly of an alcohol overdose. Not ever knowing that a night of hanging out with friends would forever change our family. I don't think he meant for this to happen. I think he would be mad right know if he knew this was the outcome. I believe everything has a reason for happening, no matter how much it hurts. I had a dream after he died, it is the only dream I ever had of him, and he assured me of how wonderful Heaven is and would never come back here. He told me "you just wait, you don't know what your missing". And I believe that! That is what comforts me when I am sad. He was a great guy! No one is perfect and we could all do things better or differently at times but we are human, and we are allowed mistakes. God loves everyone, no matter our faults. I love & miss you!! Your big sister, Barbarella.

Epitaph reads: "No man will take my life who did not give it to me!". He wrote this on a large piece of construction paper and had it hung on his bedroom wall.

6.17.2007 This is to all the Mother's, From my Mom, Barbara (Adam's Mom): It has been 6 years since the passing of my son Adam. It's still hard for me to talk about it. I've had good days & bad days. There were so many things he could have done. I keep an album next to my bed, at times I look at it, it's just to feel he's still here, anyway this is my reason for writing this. God's good all the time and while standing outside of work one day He gave me these verses to stand on. He gave me these to help you also. Isaiah 61:2-3, says God will comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve. He will give a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of Praise instead of despair. Revelation 21:4 says He will wipe away every tear from our eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain for the old things has passed away. One glad day we will see them again, what a joy that will be. God Bless Each of You!

This is a poem that I found on Find A Grave

They say that life is fleeting, I know that this is true. I left this world so quickly, with no goodbye to you. I know how much you miss me, your tears fall ever light. The pillow where you lay your head, Is wet with them at night. I know your heart is hurting, the words we left, unsaid. I love you's left unspoken are spinning in your head. The strength that I have carried, that served to make you whole, remains to make you stronger, within your grieving soul. For you see, while you were weeping on the day I passed away, at the grave site near the flowers where my loved ones knelt to pray. An angel came to see me, she took me by the hand, she led me to a kingdom in a very distant land. As I look down from the heaven, and see you standing there, your heart so ever burdened with more weight than it can bear. I long to bring you comfort, I long to give you peace, I long to hold you closely, cause all your tears to cease. The joy I've found in heaven goes far beyond compare. The love that's so elusive, can be found here everywhere. The light is softly shining, there's no storm clouds here or rain. There's no teardrops found in heaven, there's no suffering, there's no pain. You needn't be so troubled, Stay close to God and pray that someday we'll be together, one bright and glorious day. So my love, you shouldn't question my dear you need not cry I've gone to be with Jesus I really didn't die.
