Message: My thoughts and prayers are with each family member during this time of such great loss. I was so priveleged to be able to know and work with this good man. He always spoke of his family in any conversation because he loved each of you so dearly. As fate would have it, I got to see him during one of my doctors visits in LR and I am so glad I ran into him. His spirits were high and all he had on his mind was trying to make sure the next guy who had this illness would get the treatment needed...even during his worst moments, he still thought of others before himself. I assure you, this world was a better place because of Reece Adams. May God bless each one of you in your time of sorrow.
