    Dearest Patty,

    I was so very sorry to hear of Adrian’s death. As my “twin” (we share March 13th as our birthday), it was always fun to exchange greetings. He was such a sweet, courteous gentleman, and he will be sorely missed. Our prayers are with you and your family at this sad time.

    My sincere condolences to the family. Adrian was the sweetest guy and always had a smile on his face. He reminded me of my own grandfather which gave me comfort on the days I would see him. Continued prayers and strength for the days and weeks ahead. He was a good man.

  4. Kathryn Coleman says:

    Adrian and his wife, Patty, was good friends to me for about 50 years. I met them when I was young and started attending Kountze Church. I felt like they mentored me in those beginning years, and I learned much from them. Adrian was a gentleman and a wonderful, caring, compassionate man. He was a good husband and father. I know he will be missed by his family and many more! My sincerest sympathies to his family!
