Ripples in my life. You crossed paths with me and my family in times of honor and respect, and times of trepidation and great worry. Each time you were there for us. Your great smile, humor and sincere kindness and caring always made my day. My USS Indianapolis family and friends owe you for your support and participation. My son Joey and wife Sandi and I especially appreciated your presence and lab tech work when Joey was battling cancer at AMC and your happy demeanor and sunshine walked into his room to draw blood and talk with us...6 years ago.

With much sadness we say goodbye to you...for now. We will see you again, my friend. Sending love and prayers to Adcock family and friends.
