Adam Remembered

Since Adam's tragic death on 24th March we have been overwhelmed by all the cards, letters and flowers we have received.  As can been seen from the Celebration of Adam's Life held in Yorkshire in April (see film below) Adam touched thousands of lives.

A number of people have written articles, blogs and reflections about Adam.

Thank you everyone who has written to us; about Adam; attended a service in his memory and/or have donated to Sepsis UK in Adam's memory.  Adam asked that donations be made to Sepsis UK in his memory. You can do so if you would like to HERE

With thanks to the authors, here are some pieces written and tributes paid to Adam since his death:-

NB: Several of the newspapers say Adam became paralysed at 10 months old.  This is not true, we are unsure where this information came from. We think it was published by one paper in error and then copied by others.  Adam did however have very limited physical movement due to his cerebral palsy.


  1. I've only just heard that Adam has passed away, through Jeremy Vine's Carers Week feature on Zoe.

    Please accept deep, sincere condolences from one CP 'child' to the family of another.

    I followed Adam's progress and his amazing achievements through my blog, Same Difference. He reminded me strongly of my best friend, who sadly passed away as a teenager several years ago. I'll write a tribute to him now.
