Adam Harrell Funeral and Widow

$5,940 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 76 people in 5 months
The outpouring of support has been tremendous for this campaign and we had a request to increase our goal. This generosity will help Mary rebuild her life and keep her household afloat. We, her family, thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
Our Adam finally married his Mary this past August and two months ago they were able to buy a house. Adam fought his way through the most insidious of diseases: Addiction. He entered the Pathways for Change program, a model program and collaboration of the justice system, faith organizations, community groups where he excelled and served as a leader once completed.
But, Adam ultimately lost his battle on Saturday, Jan. 6.
With a beautiful and loving wife, engaging stepdaughter who adored him and the support of family and friends, we all thought Adam would be strong against temptation.
As they say, it only takes one bad day. One bad hit.
Adam and Mary scraped and saved to pay for their own wedding in August and to complete the closing on their house. They have already put in sweat equity and what little money they had left over into their dream of a future.
I am asking friends and family to donate whatever you can to help Mary and his parents, Donna and Butch Ball pay his funeral expenses.
Adam was working toward a job that offered benefits but time ran out so he had no insurance. I thank each and every one of you.
Our Adam was a big teddy bear of a man and he always thought he could save and protect others.  We love you, Bubba. Forever and always.

Adam's service is this Saturday, 2pm at My Father's Vineyard, 8130 Pensacola Blvd, Pensacola Fl. We so appreciate your donations. This effort will stay open for another couple of weeks. As we shared before, Adam and Mary bought an older home a couple of months ago and have put every cent and their labor into paint, flooring, etc. He was the primary wage earner. Mary already is making a plan for her employment and a way to fund their mortgage through roommates. The extra money will give her time to put this plan into action. She has been speaking at area recovery meetings and also last weekend to the graduates at Pathways for Change. Her advocacy will help keep Adam's story front and center. We love her so.

We have had such a heartwarming response to Adam's tragic death and increased the goal to allow those who wanted to donate the ability to do so through this effort. The recovery community, friends and family - even strangers who never knew Adam - are generously giving to this campaign to help Mary move forward. Adam was the primary wage earner and the newlywed couple had just purchased their first home. Mary is a hard worker and determined to sustain their new home and honor his memory. A service is planned for Jan. 20 and I will post further details when they become available. Many thanks and much love to all.
