I read your letters you wrote, and it does not help. It hurts. You were the sweetest nephew, and giving soul. You would think with all the family I have it might comfort me more, but after all this time I miss you so much. I am so proud that you gave for us, and honored you were my nephew. God was good to have shared with us. I just wanted more time. Today I am headed to the club on Mountain bike, riding all the way with a flag and your name.."

"Adam, your memory will live on forever in me brother. My kids will know about you when they are old enough to understand. They will know why my first dog was named Happy. They will cheer for the Eagles almost as much as they will for the Vikings. We had great times in Germany together but not nearly enough. You will be missed at our upcoming reunion but you will never be forgotten. We carry your memory with us everyday and only wish we could be half the man you were at 21. We'll see you soon buddy, but not too soon."
Dustin of Moorhead, MN

To this day I still think about you. You are a great friend and you will always have a place in my heart. I have so much more I want to say but I already know you can feel what I want to say. I promise you this, I will come and pay my respect. I'm sorry I have not done this yet and I feel really guilty. I love you man!"

I represent PRAYER SHAWLS 4 FALLEN SOLDIERS (PS4FS), an organization that since October 2007 has sent over 2,800 prayer shawls to military families who have lost a loved one. We are an organization of over 240 groups from all over the country. We make every effort to reach families even when post cards are returned after they have moved. Would you kindly send me a contact email/address so that we may send a loving hand-made prayer shawl to the family? Thank you!

"It's hard to believe that it has been 5 years since the loss of your wonderful son. My son, John Akridge, was serving with him in Iraq on that day. He told me in an email a few days later that Adam was the first person to befriend him when he arrived in Germany; and that Adam was one of the the nicest guys he ever met.

Nearly 2 years ago we lost John to PTS. I take comfort in the thought that Adam, Jason Lynch and John are together in heaven.

Thank you for your sacrafice and thank you for raising such a fine son.
May God Bless you.

"To the Family of Adam, I remember your son well and will always remember the times we use to go lift weights at the gym in bamberg before the deployment and how i use to always mess with him and say that he wasn't ready and needed more weight to be like me but i needed to be like him a very special man that was respectful and loved by all he will be greatly and sorely missed, in 2004 we the soldiers of C 1/6FA commemorated our final softball game with the initials of him and another fallen brother from our family and won in their memories we will always love, miss and carry them in our hearts forever. Take Care and God Bless"

"God Bless You Adam-Thank you for all that you did to keep our country safe!
May God Bless your family and keep them in His care."
The Fiadino Family of Burlington, NJ

"Thank you, Adam. It's hard to believe that you went to my school once. I mean, I never got the chance to meet you, and here you went to my school years ago. That's the saddest thing of all about the world losing you and others like you--there are so many that never got the chance to know, so many that never got the chance to hear your voice, your laugh, to see you smile. So many never got the chance to find out who you really were--not that blurb in the paper, but who you really were. It's not fair to you, and it's not fair to us.

Thank you for what you did for me. Whether I agree or not that you should have been over there doing it isn't any matter at all--thank you anyway for your courage, and for thinking about your country and the other people in it, like me, and putting it and us above yourself.

And if you can know it, know that I'll be praying for your loved ones, so that they may find peace."
