My brother. We were the same age and grew up together since we were kids. You know you and me hung around together all the time, more than anybody else. I introduced you to music you loved, and friends that became the best of friends to you. I evan introduced you to all my girlfriends. I loved inviting you to the coast fishing with me, just to be there. So many trips I lost count. You know I let you do what you wanted, just to make you happy my brother. We had are funny disagreements, but always forgot about it and ended up together having a good time. One thing we had in common, was music, joking around, and having a good time as much as possible with everybody. That I will miss. We had hidden humor that only we understood. Here towards the past 5-6 years you worried about me. You always wanted to make sure I would not be alone and that somebody would always be there for me. You always wanted me to play that song by Alterbridge "Watch Over You", and you said that was your song to me. You cared and loved me just like I did you my brother. You always complimented me on how I was a good father to my son Myles, and that I was a good, honest, hardworking, responsible man, and that you were proud of me. That made me feel good. I will always remember that and your big heart. We had so many good times and I would not trade those moments for the world. I will do the things we enjoyed, because I know you would have wanted me to. I know I will see you again, and know you will be waiting on me. Until then, I love you Adrian L. Acosta (my brother).

Buddy, it's been about a year since we last saw each other, and I dearly wish that wasn't the case. I'm going to miss having you around at the park with Marcos and Mark. You were a good man with a huge heart, who never met a stranger. You will be sorely missed, and I'm grateful to have called you friend. God bless you buddy, and I'll see you when my time comes to cross the River Jordan.

I am so very sorry to hear of Adrian's passing. Sending my heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the entire family. I know this is a huge loss and I wish each of you peace. I loved and will always remember Adrian's wonderful, jovial and talented spirit. I often remember and miss the times we played pool, the BBQs and holidays at Annette & Michael's and most of all how Adrian ALWAYS made us laugh and shared his music. I am truly thankful to have met him and will always treasure those time. Thank you and Bless you Adrian - you are missed.

Adrian words cannot say how much I will miss you. You could make anyone laugh and feel better about life. The kitty litter dance was awsome! Everytime I talked to you, saw you, or spent time with you, I saw you as my 7 year old little brother. You amazed me not only with your ability to make people laugh and musical talent. But more than that, you amazed me with your enormous heart. You loved everyone no matter what. I LOVE YOU AND I MISS YOU BRO! I Thank the Lord Jesus that he made a way for me to be with you, for eternity, in heaven. Until then; tell grandpa I said "Hello".
