If I can achieve in my lifetime, a quarter of what you achieved in your 27 years, I will be a very, very happy girl.
You will never be forgotten, even by those lives you touched only briefly and slightly.. that is a unique gift and together with your achievements, I hope can bring comfort to your family and friends in the weeks and months ahead.
Your humour also endeared you to many, and I know you will now be busting those Sudders dance moves in heaven. :)

Hels xXx

Dreadful news. My heart goes out to Adrian's family and friends. If so many people who didn't have the pleasure of knowing Adrian personally can be so affected, what must they be going through. God takes the best first so they say .... I'm beginning to think that is so true. Rest in peace Adrian. xx

Keith, Kay and Carrie, thank you all for allowing us into your Family, to share Adrian with you.He accomplished so much, so selflessly in so short a space of time. The impact of what he has done will have an infinite ripple effect.
My prayers are for all of you as you mourn the loss but celebrate the life of your precious Son. God bless.
Love Janet in SA

What an amazing guy- he has given so much to those of us he has left behind. I only hope we don't let him down. Sleep well - you were an inspiration to all who read your blog .

May you rest in peace. In all his pain he deserved a peaceful end, with his family who I give my heartfelt sorrow. x

I, like so many, many others, will never ever forget you Adrian. You have been such an inspiration and taught me to really value my life, happiness and particularly my health.

My thoughts are with Adrian's family and friends in this incredibly difficult time. I hope they can gain some strength from knowing how much love is coming their way from across the globe from all of us who read Adrian's blog and came to love him as a real friend.

God bless Adrian, and all your loved ones.

I trust you are now resting in peace, and no doubt recruiting the angels for your campaign! Rest assured that the excellent work you started will be continued by the many people whose hearts you touched.

Much love as ever,

I can only imagine that all who really knew Adrian were amazed by his courage and fortitude and sheer determination in rasing awareness of the issues surrounding leukaemia and bone marrow donation.

To those many thousands of us who only knew him in 'virtual reality' he has been an inspiration.

I am sure that I am not the only person who has been following this blog who will remember Adrian and the work that he has done for many years to come.

So much achieved in so little time, and with the ball well and truly rolling to continue the good work that he started.

Adrian, you have finally found peace and are free from pain...


I'm so sorry...what a wonderful young man. May perpetual light shine upon him.

My thoughts go out to Adrian's parents and family. What a selfless inspirational young man. Thinking of others at all times. I did not know you Adrian but I followed your enormous efforts throughout. Such a sad loss this world has suffered

My thoughts go out to Adrian's parents and family. What a selfless inspirational young man. Adrian I did not know you but I followed your efforts throughout. Always thinking of others. What a loss this world has suffered.

Adrian, I didn't know you but wished I had. Truly yours was a life not wasted for a minute. My deepest sympathy go to your family and friends.
God Bless you xx

Shine on, Adrian.

Sweetdreams sweetheart xx

Rest In Peace Adrian, you are in the best place now! You were an amazing person throughout your illness and your courage and determination will never be forgotten! Much love to your family and friends during this very difficult time, watch over them all from above.

Paula, Co.Tyrone

A great inspiration and an amazing writer
A huge loss to the the world of journalism.
RIP Adrian

Job well done, rest easy now, Adrian.

You can leave it up to us now.


My heart goes out to Adrian's family. I have followed his progress and felt for you all in your anguish but what a man he must have been to have fought so strongly and kept on sharing his thoughts and hopes with so many people. You must be feeling nothing but pain now but you had a wonderful son who must be a credit to you and will always remain so.Be strong now for him and remember soon only the good times and take comfort from the fact that he no longer has to suffer the appalling knowledge that he was not to destined to a long and happy life.

Adrian, You reached across continents to touch the hearts of people all over the world. You were an exceptional man, and we are all richer for having followed you through your journey. Rest in peace. My sympathy & condolences to your family & friends. I know there is a special place in Heaven for you.

You were an inspiration to us all, may your legacy live on.

Although I didn't know him I thougt he was an amazing person and he, his family and friends should be so proud of what he's achieved. It's just such a shame that it had to be these awfull circumstances which made his campaigne so well known. He was a true inspiration to everyone, young people especially. Many people would have just given up and spent there last precious days in fear of what was to come but he went on to tell the world his story and to get young people the education they should have against these illnesses so in the future they can help someone like Adrian.
Best wishes to his family and friends I just thought you should know that he touched my heart with his strength as he undoubtably did the rest of the world.
RIP your in a better place now

A sad day, your passing Adrian marks the end of your brave battle and its now our turn to carry on what you started so well. Your spirit and courage will live on and the millions of people who's lives you have touched wont ever forget you or the amazing things you have acheived. Your work will continue!!! My deapest and most heart felt simpathy goes out to your family and loved ones. RIP Adrian.

I am a reporter myself and take great inspiration fromt he work Adrian did and the passion he showed for his job.My thoughts are with his friends and family at this hard time.May his memory and spirit live on.

It was with great sadness that I learned about the death of Adrian this morning.
A truly decent human being who fought a terrible illness with dignity and courage and was an inspiration to thousands of people all over the world.
Never complaining about his own pain and suffering he was going through, he dedicated the time he had left to helping others instead. That is surely the mark of a very special person indeed!

My deepest sympathies go out to Adrian's parents at this very, very difficult time. Rest in peace now, Adrian. We will never forget you, your ambitions and achievements.

My sympathy to Adrian's family, friends, and his army.

He is free.

"Don't worry 'bout a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."

Much Love,

I was so saddened to check the blog today and find this news. I was hoping to find more words from Adrian, but they will be no more. He's a true angel that earned his wings in heaven this morning. God Bless You Adrian and thank you for allowing us into your world. I will miss you and remember your inspirational life always. My deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends during this difficult time. You'll be in my prayers.

Sleep tight, Adrian, we've got it from here

"I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that my spark should burn out
in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot.
I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom
of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time."
--Jack London Credo

Knowing you only through this website, news articles and videos, you are the brilliant blaze and superb meteor.
Rest in peace, Adrian.
You are a hero.
Your family and friends were lucky to have you, and they also are heroes to me!

Rest now and be at peace.

I will always remember you, even though you never knew me.

Thank you for showing me and everyone else the true meaning of dignity and grace.


You were and always will be a wonderfull inspiration to us all.
Sleep tight and dont forget to get a new feathery hat to match those angel wings.

Sleep tight.


Rest In Peace Adrian.

You are gone but you will never be forgotten, the work you have done in the last few months when you were so tired will affect many more lives in the future.

Sleep tight X

My god Adrian,

I am going to miss you so much. I looked forward to reading your blog everyday. You were such an inspiration to so many people from all over the world.
Also I want to thank you Liam for everything that you have done with the blog. You were an outstanding friend to Adrian. I wish I was able to have met both of you.
Also Mr. & Mrs. Sudbury. I am truly sorry for your loss. You had a exceptional son you can be very proud of.
Bless you.

It's not how long a star shines but the brightness of the light that's remembered.

You're light will never go out Adrian. It continues to shine through the precious memories your loved ones hold of you and of course the legacy of your campaign.

Sleep well xxx

to Adrian's family,

Like many people who didn't know Adrian personally I am gutted all the same.I believe Adrian will help many to become better human beings. Such courage and selflessness! It gives you hope about the human race.

Thinking of you.Love, Brigitte

My heart and deepest sympathy goes out to Adrian's family and friends and to those of us who grew to feel we knew him through his blog, and now share in sadness at the loss of such a brave, inspiring and fine young man.


I only discovered this blog a few weeks ago, when a group I'm in on Facebook emailed me asking to sign his recent petition.
In these few weeks Adrian has touched my life and I am so genuinely sad to read he has gone and my heart goes out to all who knew him.

RIP Adrian. :0(

Adrian was an inspirational young man to many people and his work will help others who may suffer

My deepest sympathies go to his family and friends

Love Amyx

u kept fighting fella
no more suffering
so sad

baz an dawny

Every now and again someone comes along who grabs us, shakes us up a little, and makes us realize what is important in life. You were one such a person, inspirational and brave. Though sadly your life was cut tragically short you were able to show the rest of us what is important.
My sincere condolences to your family who will be feeling lost just now.

All my love this evening to the Sudbury family. The tremendous outpouring of affection bears testimony to just how widely loved Adrian and all of you, his family, are.

Thank you Liam for always doing such a fantastic job running - and keeping us up to date with - this blog (- and now setting up the book of condolence.)
Love and best wishes to you and the 'dream team' too.

Dear Keith, Kay, Carrie and all Adrians close family and friends.

I am so saddened to hear that Adrian has lost his battle with this dreadful disease. 4 weeks ago i lost my mum. It was my mum that introduced me to " Baldy's Blog " She went on every day and signed petitions and put herself on the bone marrow register too!
She was so proud of Adrian, just like we all are for his continuous drive and determination right to the very end.
Adrian was took far too soon, Heaven has gained another Angel and my mum will take good care of him.
Please accept my condolences, greif is a powerful emotion, especially the loss of a child, My heart goes out to all of you at this sad time.

Take care and treasure the memories

Love Carley-Anne.

so sorry to hear the sad news this morning of adrians passing my condolences to his family and friends rest in peace adrian gone but not forgotten

What an inspirational man.

No longer suffering in pain... You were so brave in your fight.

My thoughts are with Adrian's family at friends at this difficult time.

Rest in peace. xx

What proud parents and family Adrian must have. Rest in peace and God bless you. Love to all family and friends.x

I've been following Adrian's blog for quite some time, and just wanted to comment that aside from the amazing person that Adrian obviously was (I didn't know him personally), and the important work that he did in promoting education about bone marrow donation, his character shines so brightly because of the friends and family who he loved and who loved him - both his mother's first proud comment when he started the blog, and his father's tribute in the last post.

My heartfelt sympathy to his parents, sister and everyone who knew him well. Rest in peace, Adrian.

No longer in pain, sleep in peace now you lovely fella,
Much love and prayers to your family now at this sad time.
Peace for you now Adrian. xxxxx

Heard the news at 9.00 this morning as I was parking my car at the Lincolnshire Echo to teach shorthand to young journalists.

It felt strange when I looked at the young men in the Echo and realised Adrian was about the same age - too young to leave.

Yet some people leave deeper footprints on the earth and I am sure he did.

May your God be with you Adrian - your pain and suffering are over and you made the world a better place. Your parents were so lucky to have such a lovely boy. I will never forget your cheeky face!


What a sad day. I have been reading Adrians blog and dont how he found the strength and courage to carry it through. Adrian you will certainly never be forgotten. I hope you find eternal peace. Thank you for sharing your days with us. Loving thoughts and prayers to your family. XXXXX

We only knew him through what he was doing since his diagnosis. If only we all could be as brave as this guy. He puts the rest of us to shame. Your family will be very proud.
Rest in Peace.

Crann Family

RIP adrian

christine and pete

Even thought we all knew this day would come, it is just so very sad.

To Adrian's family and friends, you are in our hearts and our thoughts and there is never a loss like this that is easy. Take joy and warmth in the fact that you did have the amazing opportunity to say the things that you wanted to, to spend some time that you may not have dedicated to spending together and to knowing that you are not alone in your sorrow.

To the Army....I hope to see all of you on the Facebook pages.

With a very heavy heart,

This isn't very well written, can't believe the dreadful news.

Love to you all.

My thoughts are with Adrian's family and friends during this difficult time. Rest In Peace Adrian. You have shown great courage and determination throughout this illness. You have been such an inspiration to so many people. We will miss you Adrian. xx

I am so very sorry and my thoughts and prayers are with Adrian's family and friends. Adrian touched the lives of so many people across the world and leaves an amazing legacy of inspiration and determination, shining through his campaign.

Dear Adrians family,

You dont know me but I have been keeping an eye on Adrians blogs for several months now. My lttle sister was diagnosed with a rare form of Leaukemia in December. It was a huge change to my families lives and a wake up call of such magnitude I cannot explain. She was given weeks to live in May and sadley passed away on 20th May just 4 days after being given her final analysis by docs. I was extremely close to my sister, in such a way that she was my whole world. She was one of those people who radiated love, affection and a passion for life, giving so much and never asking for anything back. To date i still havent fully come to terms with it yet, however I am STRONGER for knowing that she is now in a better place. I was never spiritual prior to this happenning, however I am now a firm believer that this life is only an ordition for the next and like my beautiful sister, your wonderful son has now earnt his right to go to a better place than this materialistic world in which we live in. The best piece of advice I can give you is that even in your darkest days you must remind yourself that Adrian is now in a better place. Its a terrible thing to witness someone you love go through that but now I picture Gracie every day, with her Black Curley hair blowing in the wind, her beautiful smile back on her face and her expression reflecting her happiness at being free. I am truely sorry to hear of your loss and I will say a prayer for Adrian. He was a wonderful young man but you should also feel proud of yourselves for bringing such a wonderful person in to this world and giving your son the peaceful, loving death which he deserved!!

To Adrian, God bless you have earnt your right to be in a good place. Altho we have lost a saint, Heaven has gained an Angel so may you finally rest in peace!!

I have been deeply moved following your battle which you did with much courage and determination, you were an inspiration to all. My heart goes out to your loved ones during this sad time but proud is not a big enough word for how they must feel to have had you in their lives. God Bless You. R.I.P x

Sending thoughts of love, comfort and light to the Sudbury family and Adrian's friends.

A light burns brightly in all of us - Adrian's spirit is carried on.

My thoughts are with you.

Denver, CO USA

I hope that with time and love and each others' strong shoulders (Adrian got his from somewhere!), I hope that you can heal well and come to peace with losing Adrian. He was so kind a soul and will long be in our hearts.

I hope you are happy and painfree up there. I have asked a dear friend who I lost to cancer to look you up. I hope soon you will have lots of new friends and enjoy your freedom. Thank you for all your wisdom and generosity. I won't forget.

Love, Margaret (USA)

I lost my dad 3 months ago so I know what it's like to lose a loved one.

Adrian was a very special person and during his last months attacked a very worthy cause. Maybe it'll be continued in the US where I live.


Adrian is always alive for us,
His passion, his encourage and his love is always in our hearts,
The golden page he opened in our lives is always full of love and hope...
He is with us all the time...
Rest in peace hero...

I was so sad to hear of Adrain's death - what an inspiration he was - even though I didn't know him I felt that I did. He always had a big smile even though he was suffering and I am sure he is smiling now.

My condolences to his family and friends. They must be so proud of him.

Rest in peace Adrian - you will never be forgotten

Dear Keith, Kay, Carrie and all who knew the amazing Adrian,
When somebody dies, a cloud turns into an angel and flies up to tell God to put another flower on a pillow.
A bird gives the message back to the world and sings a silent prayer that makes the rain cry. People disappear, but they never really go away.
The spirits up there put the sun to bed, wake up the grass and spin the earth in dizzy circles.
Sometimes you can see them dancing in a cloud during the day time when they're supposed to be sleeping.
They paint the rainbows and also the sunsets and make waves splash and tug at the tide.
They toss shooting stars and listen to wishes.
And when they sing wind songs, they whisper to us "Don't miss me too much. The view is lovely, and i'll be just fine."

Thinking of you all.

Dear Adrians family and friends,

Gone but never to be forgotten.

I have such an empty feeling inside of me. I'm going to miss Adrian so very much. The tears won't stop. No more pain for you Adrian, just peace and tranquility. Thank you for coming into my life.

Love and prayers to the wonderful Sudbury family.

So sorry to read the news on the blog today - 21st. Thank you so much Liam, for keeping us all so well informed. We all feel like we knew Adrian, though of course hundreds of us out here never met him or talked to him, but we feel we have done both through this blog. Our thoughts are so much with his family, and of course with you too Liam. Keep us in touch.
much, much love, prayers and good wishes

Goodbye Adrian

You had a smile no one could forget.

Rest in peace.

Kath& Denis Barnsley

It'll probably be a long time before I stop checking Adrians blog for updates from him. I know he's in a better place and not suffering and for that I'm happy, but the world seems emptier without him in it.

It occurs to me that his memorial service is probably going to be as delightful and funny as Adrian, especially since he planned it. No doubt he's going to leave everyone smiling, bless his heart!

The same with Carrie's wedding. What a blessing she was able to be home for the last week and plan her wedding with him. You just know it'll be so much more special because he had a hand in it.

Just remembering.....and trying to smile.


Our condolances go to Adrian's family, we lost our lovely son to Leukaemia, Tom was only 21,so we know first hand how Adrian's family is feeling, love to you all.

Axcell Family, Grimsby.

rest in peace adrian you were the most inspiring person a true caring wonderful person, you will always be remembered just like jane tomlinson god bless you. anita.

My sincere condolences to all Adrians family and friends.
As I have recently undergone a B/M Transplant myself, my family and I all know how important it is that people are made aware of the need for donors. Adrian worked hard to get this across; I hope his efforts are marked and his aims achieved, even after his passing.
Rest in Peace Adrian.

Hi to all who loved Adrian. Just watched the reports on the BBC website. How lucky I feel that I have spent the past few months in touch with this wonderful young man. He will live in my heart forever. I have never met this man but the tears for him are flowing and my heart is aching for those who really knew and loved him. God Bless you Adrian you truly were a very special person. Chris

My sincere condolences to Adrian's family, friends and all those who grew to know and love him through Baldy's Blog. He was an exceptional person, so gracious, giving and dignified and someone who (without knowing it) has taught me to be a better and more forgiving person - for that I am so grateful.

I hope with all my heart that his fantastic work lives on through many sources.

Rest In Peace Adrian.

A Star on earth now a Star in heaven keep on shining love and condolences to your family and friends.

I was so sorry to hear of Adrian's passing. Rest in peace, Adrian. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. Sweet dreams, Adrian!! You were an inspiration to us all!!

Adrian -you were truly a beacon shining in this world and the world is truly a sadder place for losing you. You were an inspiration to us all and your legend will live on. God bless you and your family and friends at this very sad time.

Goodnight God bless sleep tight...Adrian you are an inspiration one in a million.My heart goes out to your family at this difficult time.Heaven has one more angel looking down on us..


Rest in Peace Adrian. You have been a true inspiration to people all across this big wide world.

God bless you!

My deepest sympathies to Adrian's family.

I came late to Adrian's blog - and to his cause. And now ... now he is too soon gone. It is good, I think, that he knew and he knows that he has made a difference. He will be sorely missed. But he will not be forgotten.

I have spoken with my Doctor. She and I are going to work on seeing to the education of the High School kids in our district as to the process of Bone Marrow Donation and the benefits that it would give to people in need of that kind of therapy. We will be contacting Adrian's famly for permission to use his name in the campaign. We live in Plainfield, Illinois. God love you, Adrian. Because so many of us, here, do.

to all adrians family and friends
at this sad time i send my condolenses, i didnt have the privelige in meeting adrian, but through this blog know what an amazing person he was, wow what a man!! you are truly lucky to be blessed with knowing him, but of course you already know that.
adrian wherever u are sleep well and thank you for letting the rest of us get to know you xx

Thinking of you Adrian.After I started reading your blog, the first thing I do early morning is to check your blog.

Very sad that I can never read a post from you again.But beleive that you are in a safe place away from this selfish, cruel world.And the thought that you must have met Andy Sage and the two of you have company now and both are happy there makes me smile.


RIP Adrian

I didn't know Adrian personally, but was amazed after reading his blog, what an amazing person he was. I send my condolences to your family and friends. You have been so brave through all of this and an inspiration to many people.

You are now at peace!!

Goodnight god bless xx

I've spent days trying to think what to say and Mark and I have looked at lots of photographs of their time at Liverpool Uni. It makes me think that Aidy left a legacy to his family and friends of lovely memories of a lovely person and we must all tresure them and be glad we have them. All of the Leightons send their love to all of the Sudburys at this sad but proud time

Goodnight, God bless Adrian.
You Mum ,Dad, sister and all your family will love and miss you so much .You helped and gave hope to so many people . We will never forget you . Gill

Sleep well Adrian, you are an amazing man and your hard work will continue.

Mr and Mrs Sudbury.

Your son was so special and I am so sorry for your loss, Adrian will be missed by so so many people.

God Bless you all x x

I am still in awe of Adrian.
I admire his courage, his determination to improve things for fellow sufferers, his ability to communicate, his sense of humour throughtout the tough times and his dignity to the end.
He has left me feeling challenged to achieve just some small part of what he has achieved for leukemia sufferers (but for kidney cancer victims).
Wherever he is, I hope he is at rest, satisfied with what he has achieved in such a short time.
And to his nearest and dearest, don't be sad. You have so many good things to remember about him. Keep those thoughts at the front of your minds, just as he would want you to.
Thinking of you all.....

I have followed Adrian's blog for a bit now. He gave me inspiration and strength. He is at peace now.
My thoughts are with his family and friends.


I knew the time would come when Adrian left this world. I'm saddened, I send my heartfelt condolances his Family and friends.
I've felt very privaleged to read his blogs and smile and cry along with them.
Now gone to a place with no pain or suffering.God Bless and goodnight Adrian, may the angel take you under there wings, no one deserves that more than anyone i can think of. One of the most selfless people i will ever hear or know of.
A true Angel.
Sleep tight Adrian.

Another star shines in the sky to show us the right path to take just as it did when it was on earth.
Your an inspiration to us all.

I'm gutted to read of Adrian's death. He was a special, special man.
Much love to all his family and friends, my thoughts are with you at this terrible time.

Adrian will live on in the memory of all those who knew and loved him, and will live on in the legacy of the causes he worked so hard for.

Words are cheap and sometimes over-used, but he was - and is - an inspiration.

A very brave man indeed, so much courage and fight. An example to us all! May you rest in peace and sleep with the angels now honey, the pain has at least ceased.

My sincere condolences to his family, such a difficult time, and of course to his friends, I have no doubt that he will always be with you all.


I feel honoured to have met you adrian, one of the songs you picked was right. You are the one and only. A true gift from God. You will be sadly missed by all, but you will also be remembered by all the fantastic work that you have done. love Cheryl. xx ps HOPE THEY HAVE CORDIAL UP IN HEAVEN.

I light a candle every day, Hoping the pain will fade away, But with the light of each new dawn, Another day and you are still gone. Rest in peace Adrian. XX Elizabeth

I only met Adrian briefly as it is his mum Kay who i worked with and knew well.
Adrian certainly had his mum's fighting spirit and from that i knew Adrian would not give up the great fight easily.
What an inspiration to us all. We should always think of Adrian when we are feeling a little low and say to yourself, what would Adrian do?
My sincerest of love and admiration to you Adrian for your determination, courage and great personality. My sincerest of sympathy to your mum, dad and sister who will undoubtedly be unconsoleable for their loss of such a bright star but i am also sure that they will be bursting with pride and admiration of having such a wonderful son and brother
