Football Star Son was asked to honor Kyle with a tribute at the SFHS 2007 graduation ceremony.
Good evening, for those of you who don’t know us, my name is aaron and this is my best friend adam garza. I feel that God puts a certain person in everybodys life who is truly amazing. Kyle Jonas Adams was that person in many peoples lives, including the two of us standing here before you and many of you out there. Kyle was an A student at Santa fe High School, a member of the varsity football and baseball teams, and was a member of the national honor society. He strived for greatness at everything he did…and most of the time he achieved that greatness. There were struggles along the way such as mrs nolens freshman english class and mrs scullys world history class but he always gave 110%. He was a caring brother, a loving son, nephew and grandson and a loyal friend. I am sorry for all of you who did not know him because he was truly an outstanding young man. Kyle served as a light to those who needed guidance both during his life and his death. Whether you needed advice or just someone to vent to, Kyle was always willing and eager to help in any way he could. Adam and I both could go to kyle with any issue or trial we were facing and he somehow always found a way to make us feel better. Its hard to step back and look at my life without Kyle because he was such an important part of it for so long. But when I do this I realize that he is as present now in my life as he always has been and he is more important than ever.He is not with me physically but rather emotionally and spiritually, Kyle is with me more than he ever has been. I know that I can speak for adam and myself, and much of the graduating class of 2007 when I say that Kyle was the most caring, honest, humble and loyal person we’ve ever known. He was an asset in the hallways of santa fe high school because it was hard to catch him in a foul mood. His smile could easily turn the worst day of your life into your best day and he never missed the chance to prove it. His bright blue eyes could pierce into the very depths of your soul if he knew you were upset. The sound of his laugh made you smile, even if you didn’t feel like it. He was an all-American great guy and I thank God for putting him in my life, even if for only a short while. Kyle’s life was much shorter than it should have been and proves the statement that God only takes the best. He took Kyle, and he got the best. To my graduating class I say that Kyle’s memory lives on in us and I pray that you remember him in all the good times and the bad times. I wish everyone the best of luck in their future and go forth knowing that Kyle is watching over us all. The last thing I would like to ask of everyone here in attendance is to help me in recognizing the people that made Kyle who he was. Please join me in applauding Mr. and Mrs. Ken and Karen Adams………thank you for your time and all of the support that you have shown his family and those who knew him.
