From: Rob Carlson
Relation: Friend

Lucy and Family: so sorry for your loss.
Working at the “garage” for Adam taught me work ethic and added to my life skills for which I will always be grateful. He had more energy than the energizer bunny and told me to work hard, play hard, but remember to give back. RIP my friend.

From: Janice (Soder) Graham
Relation: Family friend

Mrs. S and the guys. So sorry to hear of your dads (Adams) passing but know that in many ways he had left you quite a few years ago. I have SO many fond memories of all of us growing up together. Houseboats, skate athons, hockey games, powdered milk, bridal shower, my parents 25th anniversary , and the list goes on. Cherish your memories.

From: Gail and Al Odne
Relation: Neighbour

Lucy and family. We were sorry to hear of Adams passing. A life well lived.
