I would like Adam Horlacher to receive the Sunshine Award. He is such a nice young man who is a valued friend and neighbor to many. This particular happening is simply outstanding and should be mentioned. Adam and his dad rented a farm south of Eau Claire from an older man who also farmed all his life but gave it up in later years. Adam and this man became good friends and enjoyed each other’s company. Many times Adam would mention all the neat things he learned from the man. This man, Harold, later developed cancer and Adam checked on him daily and on good days watched Adam till the soil and wait to see the harvest. When Harold was in the hospital and the nursing home, Adam would always stop for a visit up until his death. Once again, Adam was at his side, and pallbearer at Harold’s funeral.
Now the farm auction was recently held and even the auctioneer was amazed at Adam’s ambition, organization skills, and knowledge of what it takes to get machinery running and ready to be sold. I’m sure Harold was looking down and proud of Adam. A job well done!!
From A Neighbor who has been helped many times too.
