      I was fortunate enough to see my boyfriend return from war but I know I lived with the fear of him dying for 15 months. I am deeply sorry and I am very proud of Adam. He is a hero in my eyes and I am sure the world is less of a better place because he is gone. All of you who were fortunate enough to know him are in my prayers and may he rest in peace. It’s truly a shame to see such a young boy loose his life to a horrible war…but heroes like him are the ones that give us our freedom!!

      ADAM!! THANK YOU!! for making the ultimate sacrifice!!

      Adam I will miss you every day until I see you again in Heaven. We were so lucky to have you in our lives and in our family. All of us feel robbed to not still have you. You could always bring a smile to my face. I know you are happier where you are now than you ever were here on earth. I know Toy welcomed you at the gates with Dad right behind her.

      Dear Mr. Leftwich,
      All the convoluted, pseudo-patriotic drivel that your pathetic fingers can type, will never assuage the guilt and condemnation you richly deserve. Your ill treatment of Adam and his dear sister and mother chills the heart of everyone who remembers your unworthy association with this hero. I hope to meet you someday to explain just how bitter the verbal and physical abuse you poured upon or fallen hero during his younger years, has left so many of us. No expressions of false contrition that you post here will change the opinion of those who know you. Rot in hell, you unworthy bastard.
      Most sincerely,
      Adam’s loving Uncle David

      ! Fidei defensor,Requiescat in pace

      We watch in horror, as again the untamed hordes strike at our hearts. Today in London, those who would have our way of life extinguished, brutally murdered people just doing everyday people things. However,none can say that you did not commit your full measure of devotion to protect freedom. You contributed more in your short life than most will in a lifetime. You contributed everything…

      Just wanted to say that i work with Adam’s aunt in Missouri. I didnt know him personally but I know her and work with her everyday.. She always told us stories about her family and her nephew. We felt like we knew him as well. It his us like a ton of bricks when we found out about Adam. We all thought the same thing… How sad. We are all truely sorry but just know that he is even remembered with people who didnt know him personally but shared his life through his aunt. WE are very proud of him for serving this country but deeply sad that things turned out the way it has. Today we read the clippings that she brought in and I have to say we shed some tears as well.. Had to walk way and read on my own. I am truely sorry. His aunt is a very nice person who is strong but it hurts my heart to see her eyes she is forever changed. Just know we care as well and we will keep his spirt alive. God bless you. C.White, Missouri.

      Semper-Fi my little Brother. You have walked this earth with meaning and valor….You have Battled the Evil that tries to encompass all that is good…and gave all in that same respect. May our LORD open wide the gate For another MARINE.
      for we are few among many, who stand tall till the end. But we are many among few…who pass with HONOR to meet again.

      I could only hope that all my fallen brethren were remembered in that was fitting. And not here …for this is one of the many places that houses the same that has caused so many to fall.

      SEMPER-FI………OOH-RAH….OOH-RAH!!!

      There are no words that I can say to comfort your loving family. Just recognition of a mighty fine brave young man who made the ultimate sacrifice for his country, a hero!

      They Don’t Wear Purple Hearts In Heaven

      I lost my brother to a foreign land;
      I was too young to even understand
      There was a knock at the front door,
      then Momma wasn’t smiling anymore.
      The man at the door was a Marine;
      the first I’ve ever seen.
      Momma told me to go out and play,
      then the preacher came
      and they started to pray.

      Tears ran down Momma’s eyes,
      and I heard her say, “Why, Lord, Why”?
      Father stood there seemingly mindless,
      all he said was, “We’ve lost another of
      America’s finest.”

      The Marine handed Momma a small velvet case,
      inside was a Purple Ribbon, attached to a
      gold heart with Washington’s face.
      I asked Momma if it were mine,
      but she said, “It’s your brother’s, Sunshine.”
      “Momma can we send it to Kevin?”
      She answered, “They don’t wear Purple Hearts in Heaven.”
