We will be releasing balloons in his honor.
Suicide is permanent solution to a temporary problem, seek help. Nothing can bring Adam back and trying to second guess every conversation, every action will only destroy us. Do not let Adam’s last action define his life or the good memories you have of him. He was an amazing person who loved us all as we loved him. If you are thinking about suicide or know someone who is, call and get help.
