It’s been years since you’ve died man, you basically raised me. I’m gonna miss you forever, you were my cousin but you always acted like my cool uncle. I miss our times going to hot dog world, or hanging out at your house with sweet pea, and looking at your darth Vader lightsaber that I could never touch. I’m sorry my birthday got in the way of your service, I wish I could have been there. I love you forever Adrian, rest in piece.

I am so sorry for the loss of this amazing person. I tried to get to the service today but was unable due to schedule issues. Adrian always impressed me with his depth of insight he expressed through his art work. I felt truly blessed to know him and he will be missed. His talent was amazing. God bless his family and friends…Deb Pittillo
