If you knew Adam, you knew that you would never be left without a smile on your face. Not only was Adam one of the funniest people on this planet, but he was also one of the most caring people you would have ever met. Adam would’ve done whatever it took to make sure anyone that needed anything was taken care of. He would’ve given you the shirt off of his back, his last dollar, a roof to sleep under—the list goes on and on.
Adam Carter was violently taken from this world on July 8th, 2019. These same great qualities he possessed, he also searched for in return. This led him to a situation that involved a person that was involved in an abusive relationship. Thinking he would be able to save her and provide her a life that she deserved, as well as finding that love he searched for in return, he ignored the warning signs of what was to come. This abusive relationship turned deadly as the ex boyfriend shot and killed both Adam and this young lady.
It's extremely tragic that things of this nature happen quite often in our country. Thankfully we have groups such as The Laurel Center that are set up to help support those that are in abusive relationships, as well as providing a source for the rest of us to help spread the word.
Today should not be a day of mourning, but a day of celebration. Adam would have wanted us to celebrate his life, and help prevent other situations like this from happening. So enjoy a day of golf, socializing, and happiness. And if you’re not a golfer, or unable to attend—please make a donation so that we can all continue to try and make this world a safer and better place to live.
