The ceremony at Bridge View Center was followed by burial at a small, country cemetery on Copperhead Road south of town. The owner of a local tree service had hung a gigantic American flag over the rural lane leading to Fiedler Cemetery.
The route was lined with flag after flag after flag. Volunteers had spent part of Saturday evening, maps or hammers in hand, pounding flags into the ground along the streets the long funeral procession followed Sunday afternoon.
Wolff was buried at the pay grade of E-4; On Thursday, orders had come from the Marine Corps ordering the posthumous promotion of Lance Corporal Adam Wolff to corporal.
Cpl Wolff's mother, Deb Hall, considered the phone call from her Marine Corps liaison to be good news amid the more difficult conversations she'd had since Adam's death.
Hall, along with Adam's father Nick and brother Nathan, had gone to Dover, Delaware for the Dignified Transfer procedure of the Marine's body. Hall said the Marines there, and in other places, embraced her family as part of their family.
Sara Swanson, a school counselor for the Cardinal school district remembered Adam Wolff.
When Wolff was in school, Swanson worked with students as they explored possible plans for the future. More than a decade ago, Adam told her that he wanted to join the military. He was in eighth grade.
The family noticed a difference in Adam after becoming part of the Corps. He was still kind, but stronger, more mature.
His sister, Angela Malone, said she could see that Adam was proud to be a Marine, and proud to be serving his country.
"Adam didn't go to war to have something to do," said Hornback. "He went to war so we could know freedom. Like Aaron said; it was his calling. He was proud to serve his country and the Lord. When he breathed his last, when he closed his eyes, he was immediately in the presence of the Lord."
Don't lose hope, Rev. Horback said. Don't leave the ceremony angry at God and the world. Yes, we'll miss Adam, he said, because his body is gone.
"Spiritually, he's alive and well."
