"Adam,
You came very close to being my son-in-law, but were left my son in spirit. You were always so full of life and loving mischief. You were a wonderful, understanding soul who gave the greatest sacrifice--yourself for others. I will always remember you with love, tears and a smile."
J. Mitchell of Ireland

"I never want to forget the sacrifices of so many young men and women. I am so proud it makes me cry. I understand in theory only that war is a part of human nature but so is love and caring. I wish I could take the families pain away but I can't. I am committed to loving ALL people, myself and our environment. I am committed to working on my happiness everyday because so many have died for my freedom to live my life. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have. All my love and respect. ogersteiner@yahoo.com"
