Dear Adam,
We can't believe it's been 5 years since you've been gone.  KIA 08 April 2007 DIWANIYAH, IRAQ.  It seems like
yesterday when we received the news.  We love you and miss you very, very much!!  There isn't a day that
goes by without looking at your picture and wishing you were here with us.  We are so proud of the service
you gave and sacrifice you made for your beliefs and our country.  R.I.P. BELOVED NEPHEW!

Dear Adam,
I think about you quite often since those days in Iraq when I was walking across the compound to work from
my room.  I often remember you were getting ready to go out on yet another mission as I was passing by.  We
always talked and I really enjoyed those talks.  Then, I'd tell you to be careful, be safe and you always
did....until just one time, you didn't have the opportunity.

I can't write anymore, but just as well, because you can't read it anymore.  We can't have our talks and
laughs during those troubling times, but I will always remember your smile and how you always did your best
at everything you were given.
Respectfully,
Paul D. Nutter II

Dear Adam,
While visiting my Mom's grave on Memorial Day we came upon yours.. Not sure why out of all the gravesites,
we were pulled towards you. My mom passed away on May 18th and it has been such a terrible loss... It has
left us all with a deep hole in our hearts.
I felt such comfort leaving the cemetery knowing that she isn't far from you. That maybe, just maybe you're
helping her in heaven... My mom was a wonderful selfless person who deserves nothing but the best.. so it's
no wonder she has a hero like you by her side!

Dear Adam,
It has been over a year now since you gave your life for us and
our childrens future.  I know you are with me while I am writing this and
what a comfort that is.  I want you to know that when we played and
wrestled when you were five gave me some of my most cherrished moments in
my life so far.  When I play with your cousin Matthew I think of you
often.  The waving American Flag and the Star Spangled Banner are things
that will always make me think of what you have done for us and will
always give me a sence pride in you.  You are my first little brother
and I will miss you.  Only the good die young my friend, and know no
better than you.  Thank you for your bravery and love little brother, it
will never be forgotten by me.

I LOVE YOU,
Cousin Steve (Big Bother)

Dear Adam
For all the times that I will miss you, I know that you will forever
touch my soul and inspire me to be more courageous and dedicated. I will
always look for signs that you are near and take comfort that you are
no longer in harms way , with God,  and are safe.



          














Our trip to Mexico will always be a cherished memory and I am so
grateful we took time out to just have fun.
Your sister,

Adam was at ranger school with me and a year ahead of
me at Norwich. I will never forget hanging out on recycle status with
you in Florida or the Chapel during Wilhelm's honor hearing.

You're a back breaking worker, a courageous man, and there are none
better.
