From the first day I met Adonis, I knew he was a special person. My heartfelt condolences to Nance, the boys, and his family. The world has less sunshine, happiness, and joy with Adonis gone, but I know he’s up in the cosmos, landscaping God’s garden and continuing to make things beautiful for others.
