Below are my own words;

Adrian passed away at his home with his family beside him. Adrian was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when he was 8 years old. He was 12-years-old when he passed away.
The day before Adrian passed away, Sgt. Jeremy James from the Caro Fire Department met Adrian at his home with a fire truck to take him to the Tuscola Area Airport for a ride in a privately-owned helicopter.
Adrian's wish was to have cards sent to him from members of his community. Little did Adrian know that he would recieve cards from all over the world!! President Obama sent a note as well as Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm, the Jonas Brothers. Thousands and thousands of cards were sent from people worldwide.
