Re: “Zac Adams R.I.P. (1979-2014)

I first met Zac when he was 15 hangin out in Lil' 5 when he ran with the BG posse. We were in different circles but we became friends quickly, Zac was always friendly, everybody liked him..We started hanging out and one night we were burning one in my van and I remember telling him he was different from the rest of that crew. I told him he was a Good kid, that he was Humble, and I Respected that about him, it was a Rare quality in kids these days..I remember sharing with him a lesson I learned from my brother,I told him not to follow in others mistakes..I think he took it to heart..It was one of those memories I'll never forget.He told me no one had ever said anything like that to him before and he told me about how he grew up. His father died when he was little, and I could relate because my mother died when I was 2 years old. I felt an instant kinship with him, like he was my little brother. I tried to watch out for him even more after that, cuz it's Truth.."Streets is Rough" and I knew he Always had my back..I was working at Savage Pizza washing dishes at the time ('98) I told him he should apply, he did, and he got the job.I think it was his first time working. I was proud of him, I knew he was changing his life for the better and I was happy for him. I left Atlanta later that year and did'nt move back till 2006. I was walking up North Highland one day past Blind Willie's looking for work when I heard him holler out my old nickname..I turned around to see Zac standing there, Smiling bright, he gives me the biggest hug that almost breaks my ribs and we laughed Reminiscing about the good ole days..We were so grateful and happy to see each other again after all those years. He had a way of always making you feel Welcome, always Gracious..He had been at Blind Willie's for years already, well established in the community and Loved by all. I told him I was So glad he made it out of the Hell of the streets, many did'nt from back in those days..We would hang out at Blind Willie's when I got off work..Good Times..I wish now I would have worked with him again, he was such a Cool kid. I will Always remember his friendship.. He was a Special soul who always had Respect and Integrity and Always a kind word to say. He changed alot of people's lives with his light..I wish I could have been closer friends with him.He was Truly one of my Favorite people from Atlanta. Especially after so many of my old friends had changed and turned away, he remained True Family..I was so shocked and saddened to hear about his death..I will miss you dearly my Brother and my Friend..Thank You for All you Taught me and Shared with me..Much Love and Respect.. R.I.P. Zac Adams
