"Hold me closer ... hold me closer so I can feel the beat of your heart. I'll smile, dear; yes I'll smile
dear, knowing we'll never part. I'll swim oceans ... I'll climb mountains ... to make sure you are alright. I'll
slay dragons and chase monsters to keep you safe through the night. Hold me closer ... hold me closer so
I can feel the beat of your heart. We'll smile, dear; yes we'll both smile, dear, knowing we'll never part."
~ Gregory R. Ginther

Condolences

Dear Ginger and Denny - Thank you for this beautiful tribute, for the honesty and for the respect for the this dear life lost. I am so sorry you are going through this heartache. Our family has felt the brush of suicide too. You are very much in my prayers. Beki

Adam we met years ago when you played with Lost Soul. You were a kind and gentle man. I am happy I was able to see you last October. I am sorry.

Ginger and Denny I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your son - there are no words I can say that will take away your pain but please know that I am praying for you all.

I've known Adam since first grade at Kean Elementary... he was always such a nice guy. I've not seen him in person since high school, but I was glad to reconnect with him on Facebook and see all of the creative stuff he loved working on and sharing with people. Sincere condolences to all of his families and friends. Rest in peace, Adam.

My beloved friend, you are now one with The Force. Love you forever!

Please accept our condolences to the family.

Ginger, Greg, Daffine & Crystal
Adam was one of the nicest people I knew. I have such great memories of him from my childhood. He was the first Adam I knew and always felt a strong connection to him. The times we shared at grandma and grandpas house, his house, my house, on the boat and all the camping trips we went on will always bring me joy while looking back. We lost touch in our later years but always seemed to bump into eachother randomly throughout. I can only hope that we will bump into eachother again. I'm sorry for your loss as it is a loss for all of us. Someday we will get to play star wars again cousin... till then.

I remember Adam as a purely sweet boy, and I wish had known him as the sweet young man he had become. With deepest sympathy as you remember your son, your brother, your friend.

my dear friend Adam, you are at peace now, I picked you up many nights not only to our place of employment "Tekfor" but in your personal tormol inyour mind and heart. You always talked of the love for your family and I am Honored to have known you. lots of love and prayers your friend,Sue Myers

My brother... I picture you with magnificent wings!
❤️ ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

May you find some comfort there in the arms of the Angels. Rest well Adam.. You were an awesome friend...

Dear Gregg and Ginger~
I am beyond saddened with the news of Adam. My heart aches for you and your families and my family too. I have precious memories of Him as a young, inquisitive, sweet platinum blonde, tousled haired boy. The depth of his unselfish and loving soul was endless. The world was a better place with him in it. I am so very sorry! Sending love and hugs and prayers

P.s. don't be haunting me and taking my candy.

I wish I would have talked to you longer the last time I seen you, and I wish I would have just checked in with you more often... I miss you tons, and will think of you everytime I go to a horror convention, forever! Prayers for you AND your family.. much love <3

I am so sorry for your loss and your deep sadness. I too have been suicidal in the past and I hurt for you. Your thoughts on your son Adam remind me to keep talking and share my thoughts with other people. Thank you so much for your openness and your honesty. My regards.

Please accept my sincere, heartfelt sympathy. I did not know Adam or any of your family. I read his obituary in the Daily Record and my heart broke for you. You see, my son, Kevin King, took his own life on the same day Adam did and I know the utter devastation you must feel. Kevin is in Florida, his body just being released today. Perhaps they will meet somewhere in the great beyond. May you find comfort in many happy memories of your beloved Adam. (Incidentally, Kevin's favorite color was black.)

My deepest and most sincere condolences to all the family and friends.....To all YOU ARE NOT ALONE <3

Adam, I met you when I started at Luk. You taught me a lot on the TCC lines packing and balancing parts. You always had a smile. To the family, my sincere condolences. Adam I hope you have found peace. You will be missed

Adam was a year behind me in high school and we worked together at Friendlys. I remember Adam wearing his Replacements shirt and I would always say "Don't tell a soul" and he would put his finger up to his mouth in a shushing motion. Every time. We had similar senses of humor and sometimes he was the only one that would laugh at my jokes. Whenever we had a frustrating customer, Adam would make a funny observation and immediately calm us servers down turn it into a positive experience. I don't have a single bad memory of him. I am very sorry to hear this news and our thoughts are with the family.

So sorry for your loss.I didn't know Adam,but have also been thru suicide.It's a tough thing to go thru for everyone.Good for you,bringing it to light.It's always the sensitive souls,who are too kind for this world,that suffer.Peace to your hearts.May Adam find his peace. Sincerely,Lynette Geitgey

Rest well dear friend.

We are deeply sorry for your loss. Praying for your family. Adam was a friend to Charlotte and Camron and he will be missed.

Adam was one of the kindest people to walk this Earth. Reading through his friends posts on Facebook or even just speaking to him for a few minutes you would know that he was a loving and giving person to everyone. He cared so much and always was a fantastic friend, he said I was like a ditsy little sister, and he was very much like a brother to me. The world has lost a man that was good to his very core and was so utterly selfless. I'll miss my friend. To Adam, I'll see you on the other side. I love you.

We are truly sorry for your loss. Adam was a great guy that we looked forward to seeing at the cons. He will be missed. Prayers to his family.

Dear Ginger and Dennis,
We are so sorry to learn of your loss.
Please accept our deepest condolences for the death of Adam.
May he rest in peace.

I am so sorry for your lost, you raised an amazing, kind-hearted man. He was good at making people laugh and being a very good listener.. he would have given you the shirt off his back if you needed it.. My favorite memory I have with Adam was talking about how anti social we were that we'd buy our groceries from Amazon and sitting in my car a few winters ago laughing about the snow on our black jackets.. You will be greatly missed Adam.

So sorry for your loss,may you find peace knowing he is in a better place.

I met Adam in 1980 @ Kean school. We were in school together until 6th grade. I think as far back as 1st grade he would always have a drawing instruction book . His dinosaur drawing skills were red hot by 2nd grade. I would always check out his drawings throughout elementary school. Kean was a great school to go to and Adam made it more interesting. We reconnected on Facebook years later and having a discussion about music I found it very easy to debate with him. We both decided a song or piece either stinks or doesnt stink. Thank you for being my friend, Keith Greku

Dear Ginger & Denny,
We are so sorry for your loss. Please know you are in our thoughts & prayers!

Dear Ginger & Denny,
We are so sorry for your loss. Please know you are in our thoughts & prayers!

Ginger and Greg, There are no words to express my feelings of sorrow for you.

Did not know him but your family has my deepest sympathy and pray you can reach out to God for strength, comfort, and understanding. Only he can make things seem better. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Sometimes we don't see or understand, like you said a smile does not always mean you are at peace inside. I truly am sorry!!

I agreed with everyone above. He has the most kindred heart I have ever known. He was always so humble and sweet. Greg and Adam would always greet Daffine and me when we got to dad s home for the weekend or for the summer. He would always give up his time just to play Barbie with me and my sister. I remembered every Saturday morning, Greg and Adam would bring out their toy box in the hallway and play with us quietly while our parents are asleep. He was a great good brother and a good son to my father. He would never get bored of peanut butter sandwich. He would eat it everyday. There s no one s like him. I don't even have a bad memory of him. I will miss him and look forward to see him in Paradise. Love you, Adam. Thank you being so good to us.

Adam was such a beautiful and real friend from the moment we met. He always wanted to make sure all the people around him were ok and happy which is so rare nowadays. I loved seeing his face every time we met up because I was greeted with a smile. All my love is with him and all of his family.

Dear Ginger, Dennis, and Greg,
We are so sorry to hear of your loss.
Please accept our heartfelt condolences for the death of Adam.
May he rest in peace

I did not know Adam but am so sorry for your loss. Your love and appreciation of Adam and his life is apparent in your tribute and is amplified by your candor and encouragement to others to openly discuss depression and suicide. Thank you for that gift to others.

Dear Ginger & Denny,
Although we know words offer small comfort in your time of sorrow, we do want to express sincere sympathy to you on the loss of your beloved Adam. With deepest sympathy, Diane & Ross

Ginger and Denny, Love you and sure wish there was something I could to to make it better.
Robin
