Mr. & Mrs. Wightman and family
I am so sorry to learn of Adam’s passing. As you know we were very close friends through high school and college. It’s a shame we never stayed in touch with eachother. We were co-captions on the high school basketball team, classmates and friends. I have many great memories with Adam, which I still reminisce about today. We all lost a great person. He never said a bad word about anyone. Sorry for your loss and you are in my prayers.
