It was a great service. It is amazing to see how many lives he has made such an impact on. He was a great man and friend. His memories, energy and love for life will live on in us all.

Love ya friend

I have never before been impacted so greatly by a person whom I barely knew. Adam helped my son, as he helped hundreds of others with autism. He came to my home to help my wife, Kelley, and I to communicate with our son. From the moment he walked in the door, I knew this was a special person. By the time he left, I wished I could emulate him. I remember his voice, his presence, his passion and his love.

During and after the memorial service for Adam, I was able to reflect on just how great an impact a person can have on others; family, friends & strangers. I hope that I can be in my life the kind of man that Adam Bluestone was. He wasn't just out of the ordinary, he was an angel.

To Angie, Zachary & David: Kelley, Jack & I pray for comfort in your loss, and we offer anything we can to help you.

It was a heart felt service--memorial service for Adam. I was gretly impacted by how many lives he has touched and will somehow still touch. The only thing I regret was not beening able to see the video that was broadcasted due to such a large crowd. I would like to ask Angie at this moment if she can make a copy for this blog, for all of us who were unable to attend the service or unable to watch due to the massive crowd in order to view it.
There will never be another Adam Bluestone in this world, who love children of "autism" and other behaviors as he did. Hopefully out of respect some of the BCSD admistrators will see that we are at a GREAT loss with Adam's departure and if Angie is to also leave, there will be another loss.

Adam was a great teacher , and a wonderful man. He really loved all of the kids , I remember when he used to have the kids wash the cars and pick the fruit from the fruit trees at Rafer Johnson. There was fruit trees and a wood shop across the street next to the special ed office. I guess back then Adam was already taking our kids on community based instruction. He was such a patient man . He and the principal at the time,Ron Titus were both terrific men. They weren't afraid to get right in there and start helping with the kids.They both hugged and loved the kids dearly , they knew all their names and even wiped thier slob!! I have never come across a principal like Ron Titus or a teacher like Adam . There are just those people who will just always stick out in your mind and surley Adam will be one that will always be in my mind. He has and always will for years to come. He has truley impacted my life. I know that Angie is a strong woman and that she will continue his values of teaching , and love. And she will raise her boys to be fine young men just like thier father. She will make Adam proud of her. We all love you Angie , may God be with you throughout your days of sorrow and Joy!!

Dear Angie... my heart goes out to you and your family. Adam will be missed greatly by all. He brought so much compassion and boundless energy to everyone's life and set such a great example. I hope you and your family find peace and comfort in the days ahead.
Love,

As so many have said, my thoughts and prayers go out to all who will miss him, school friends, skydiving friends, and especialy family.

I just want to know why? Why did you have to leave? I miss you so much. Every bald head I see, I pray that it is you. Pray that I will wake up and it will have all been a dream. What I would give just to talk to you one more time. The thing is, I feel like I have talked to you. That you have told me it is okay and to move on, that you will always be with me. I am so happy to have met you and to have had you in my life. Even if it was for just a short while. I'll love you forever, you were my best friend.

I just heard about Adam. I have been out of state for 4 months. I used to Skydive at Taft with him. I am so shocked and saddened.
Even though I haven't seen him for years, I will never forget his beaming smile and positive attitude to everyone.
My thoughts are with his family and loved ones.
He had a huge impact on me. As I think of all of the people I've met over the years, I am hard pressed to remember anyone that was more positive and gracious.

Adam had the greatest mom in the world. He loved her deeply as she did him.

I do not comment, but I browsed a few comments on this page "Adam Bluestone".
I actually do have some questions for you if it's allright. Could it be just me or do a few of these responses appear like they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other places, I would like to follow you. Could you list of all of all your social pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on
just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us
something informative to read?

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would
cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
