Vale Adam Dunbar

My beloved friend, companion, unlikely muse, soulmate. You were the best. You will remain forever in our hearts. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Dunbar and Abi-Hanna families, Adam’s battle buddy Danny and their military brothers and sisters. With deepest condolences, the Dooney and Heriot family.

You can't see it in this photo but Adam's eyes were the same colour as the brightest blue on his shirt. His gaze was penetrating and soulful. I spent time with him recently. We talked and comforted each other. I didn't know the end was coming. Regardless, I have nothing but love, trust and respect for this man.

I will take some time out to grieve and then return to my work, as previously planned. Please know that I have the support of my family and close friends and am taking care of myself.

I'm so sorry for your loss. An acquaintance at work committed suicide almost a decade ago, and it still echoes. I hope you find peace.

Grief is a bastard. Thinking of you. Watch for the wobbles and hold on to what you know. Xxx
