Goodbye is not forever
Goodbyes are not the end
They simply mean I’ll miss you
Until we meet again
Oh Adam Edge, my cousin, my inspiration, and most importantly my superhero gone way too soon! Adam was not any ordinary cousin he was the highlight of my entire world! Knowing that your not physically here anymore just rips me in two! As I’m writing this I can just hear that contagious laugh of yours in my head. As the tears run down my face, I know your looking at me in heaven wanting me to smile. However, the question is how? How can anybody that knew you go on and live a normal life! That’s how incredible you were and still are just now with wings! I hope all the people you wanted to be reunited with in heaven, greeted you with the biggest smile possible and hugged you as tight as I would! I remember all the get together that our family had and you were the life of the party! These get togethers/dinners will never ever be the same anymore! No one will ever be like Adam, he sure is one of a kind! I will never forget the times of you playing basketball (horse) with me, Kyle Rockmore, Hunter Reese,Trista Crumbley,Morgan Kelly, Emily Kelly, and Anna Kelly we all would have a blast ! To all the times you had my mom Paige Reese dying of laughter .To the time where we had conversations till late at night on Thanksgiving. To the times where you would tease me about boys 🙂 ! To the times you told me the amazing stories about you traveling. To the times where I struggled and needed someone for guidance you were always the one to call! Not to mention he helped me write the best speech ever that will always be in my heart! Y’all will never understand how incredible and stunning Adam was! Adam was very active in the community and tried his best to help everybody he could! Especially children he was an ambitious role model! That I’ve always looked up to and always will! I know if I’m ever in doubt your presence will always be on my shoulder to guide me in the right direction!

Edge's tenacity and ability to find humor in everything will live on through me. I am so fortunate to have enjoyed many fun experiences with Edge and the crew. What an incredible human! I am better, stronger, and wiser for being his friend and am forever grateful for the gift that he was.

Adam was the most influential person I will ever have in my life. He is the only person that ever knew all of me, and even with my shortcomings he loved me. Our friendship got me through the turbulence of life.

He was there for me in every season of life. He was the greatest blessing I’ve had in my life. He was always there. Every time I needed him.

He was there for everyone. That what he did. That is Adam.

I can’t wait to reunite with you my friend on the other side. I’m looking forward to our hug, and hearing your infectious laugh.
