    I can’t even begin to express how deeply sorry I am for the Spellman and Long family. Adam was one of my best friends for so many years. I never thought I’d have to write something like this at just 38 years old. He was loved very much and would do anything for anyone. This one is hard, rest up Adam. My condolences to all the family.

  2. My heart hurts. Adam was an amazing friend! He will be missed dearly. Prayers to his kids and family!
