  6. The entire Adams family is in my thoughts and prayers. I pray that your sorrow will soon be replaced with comfort, peace and healing, and that you will be able to focus on the joyful memories of time spent with Rodney. While I have only been around you a few times, I know that each and every one of you hold a very special and important place in this family. Continue on, and live your lives to the fullest, as Rodney surely would have wanted you to. I adore Cindy with all my heart and I value her like a sister. It only makes sense that I feel like I am with family when I am with all of you. Therefore, I feel sorrow and loss along with you. May God bless each of you now, through this difficult time, and always.

  7. Duane,
    I can’t tell you how much you mean to us at Fedex. Your strength during this time gives us strength, the kind that lets us auto pilot during times of great loss.

    I lost my father when I was very young, and he never new me as a man.

    I can say without a doubt that your father was very proud of you, he had to be if he only knew just of your contribution to Fedex, and nothing of your firefighter career.

    You mean the world to all of us at Fedex, and on behalf of all at MGEA station, we stand at the position of attention for your father, and for your family’s great loss.
