Mary and young Adam:
I am so sorry for the loss of Adam, he was a good man, a very good man. Adam was my first coach, and in later years a good dart partner, not to mention a good friend. I was so shocked by the news of Adam's passing! Anyone who knew this wonderful man will agree, that Heaven will now be a better place with his presence there. May his spirit live on thru the family! God bless all of you and may you be consoled thru his spirit and life history!
He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
