Adam Lockard News

Adam and Lucy

Here is a link to the memorial service out at Adams College. Here is a link to an article about the memorial service. I think this really explains Adam well and for those of us that did not know his friend Lucy, it really makes it easy to understand why he would be friends with her . She seems to have been a great kid just like Adam. Here is a link to the facebook group that has been set up to memorialize Adam.  I think in these digital times it helps us cope with loss in different ways, but allows us to be more open with our feelings, and I think that is great.

Adam’s family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations may be sent in Adam’s name to the Adaptive Sports Center in Crested Butte where he recently scored an internship and just last week helped a disabled Iraq vet learn how to use a ski system for amputees.

From what his family has said, they think that there will be a memorial service in the DC area on Presidents day weekend, but that is not confirmed yet. His dad let me know that Adam will be staying in the mountains that he loved and that he is really helped by folks leaving messages on facebook and on a bunch of the blogs that are memorializing his son.

Adam was the true embodiment of living your life to the fullest.
