For everyone attending the memorial today for Adam...

Some very thoughtful friends of Adams have come up with a very heartwarming and wonderful finale for Adam and I want to share with you what our plans are...

As many of you knew... Adam literally LOVED the South Saint Vrain run. Although it runs fast and furious it was just the right speed for Adam... Adam thrived in there and ran it every day he could.

What some of you might not know is that Adams last run in there was not his best by a long shot and resulted in broken gear etc...

We are going to bring several gallons of water that was taken straight from SSV last night to the memorial and place it in bowls for everyone to simply dip their fingers into and pass on you wishes to him whatever they may be.

After the memorial, everyone is welcome to join us for a drive up to Lyons and we are going to send Adam off on a final last very clean run through his favorite creek. And this time there will no problems... just the prayers and good will at his back as we send hmi on his way.

I know Adam very well and this is something that would really hit home with him. I hope you all can join us after, but if not, just be sure to dip your hand in the water and give him your best wishes.

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body. But rather...To skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming... WOW !!!! What a ride!!!!!!"

What a wonderful last tribute to Adam !

I think this way of saying a last good-bye to Adam is so touching.
I wish I could be there... but, I only know Adam through his family.
I am a very close friend to his aunt Annie.
He has such a wonderful family and friends.
My most heartfelt sympathy I send to Adam's family and great friends.
