Adam Burns Obituary, Death – Katie and the daughters were treated to two days of breathtaking beauty on Wednesday and Thursday. The congregation, the prayers, and the times spent together. It should come as no surprise that Adam was able to fulfill all of Katie’s palliative care objectives that she had set a few days ago. The final of Katie’s goals was for the girls to spend time with Adam away from the vent and just enjoy being around him. As an additional aim, she wanted to bring in the rest of the family so that they could also see him away from the vent and spend time with him. On Thursday, at approximately one o’clock in the afternoon, they disconnected the EEG. They removed the EVD drain at approximately 2:50 in the afternoon, and at approximately 3:16 he was brought down from the vent. He handled everything quite well. Katie and the girls cherished the time they had to spend together.
Thursday night was a fun time for Katie, Adam, and the daughters to spend together, and Adam enjoyed his relaxed state. Around three in the morning on Friday, Katie woke up and went back to lying down in Adam’s bed with him. At 3:30 in the morning, the young ladies woke up to give him a hug, take his hands, and tell him how much they loved him. At four in the morning, Katie could already see that he was lost and in need of the Lord’s salvation. He looked her in the eyes and left for home at approximately 4:30 in the morning after she assured him it was acceptable to go home and to go walk with Jesus. He is currently in the most incredible location. We are aware of this. The girls have been nothing short of incredible during this whole ordeal, and they have been encircling their father with their love and saying the most beautiful things. Katie is the most resilient person I am acquainted with. They will require all of us to pray for them and to show them the love that we have for them at all times.
As the Burns and Sponder families continue to go through this process together, we ask that you continue to pray for all of them. Pray for the children, coworkers, athletes, and friends who will have to go to work or school today and have to negotiate this difficult situation. Please lift up Katie and the girls in prayer. Pray that God would give them the fortitude and strength they need to make it through this life without Adam, and that when they do finally meet him again, it will be in a place that we can only conceive. Pray. 🙏🏻
I would want to thank everyone for the love and prayers that they have been sending my way. They can be experienced. All of you have our love.
