Nora's loss
Sun, 04-21-2013 - 11:28am

It is with great sadness that I post this information sent by Nora this morning. While I know she notified some of us from the board & I felt that all of us would want to provide support to her & her family.


I'm sorry to have to tell you that at 9am this morning, Adam died. He was at home, with Mike, Mom & I holding onto him. It was how we wanted it to happen--but not what we ever wanted to happen.

What to say, except how very sorry I am, Nora.  From Ray and myself, our deepest condolences to you and Mike and your family.  It's hard to believe he is gone... Dear Adam.

Nora - I want to extend my condolences to you and your family.  From your posts, Adam was a very special person and I know he was truly loved and cared for.  Hoping your family can find some peace in the days ahead.  My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.  God Bless.

Nora - My heart goes out to you and Mike and the rest of your family.  If there is anything at all I can do from this distance, please let me know.  I realize the next few days or weeks are going to be overwhelming with arrangements and company.  If/when you need a shoulder, I am here... any time day or night.  My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.  Hold onto the many, many memories you have had over the years.  Adam will remain with you in so many ways.  When things have slowed down a bit, I would love to chat.

Even if it is understood, the heart never accepts that a parent will outlive their child.  Words cannot express my sorrow, Nora.  My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Nora - it has been a long time since I have posted here, but I saw this today and wanted to share my condolences as well. I remember your ivillage name as noraadamsmom from so long ago - which in itself says it all. You were blessed to have him in your life, but more importantly, he was blessed to have found you and your family. He had more love in his short life than many have in a lifetime. Many hugs to you and your family. Barbara
