He was the funniest person anyone could ever know. every one that knew him will not be the same. He brought light into the darkest times and he was always willing to help. i will miss adam. i wont be able to forget about him. he did not deserve this he had a bright future.my deepest sympathy goes out to his brother and the rest of his family. Rest In Peace Adam Oates

what a tragedy. shame on the police for arresting the boy. intoxicated or not, his brother needed help. anyone would have done the same thing. hasn't he suffered enough? hasn't his family suffered enough? we should all be outraged by this! what is the message they are sending? i don't condone drunk driving, but what else was he to do? i'm disgusted and the arresting officer and anyone involved should be ashamed of themselves and reconsider their judgement.

Hey baby, i know you're watching out for me and all the others who you love. I can't wait untill the day we meet back up. You were my light when it was dark. It still doesnt seem real. I look at your pictures everyday and i feel like you're here again. I feel like you'll be walking through my door again any day now. But untill that day comes true, i will keep you in my prayers. I love you so much. REST IN PEACE BABY.

that was the worst night of my life. I hope the cops that arrested Aaron rot in hell. If I ever meet them I would love to strangle the life out of them. This shows what our country is coming to. I can't wait for civil war to come so we can send these dirty cops to thier maker
