Thank you for allowing your son's life to be shared with us. His story has caused two feelings that I never expected when I began reading. The first is simply inspiration-to be a better father, husband, and person. The second, oddly enough, is guilt. I lost my best friend/brother on September 11. Reading Adam's story makes me wish I had done more and tried harder to serve my country and remember my friend. But with guilt, also strangely, there is closure. Adam's story made me face and deal with emotions I had long held back.
