Justin is someone I will treasure forever. He has always kept me laughing, always picking on me, and joking. He also gave the very best & biggest bear hugs in the world! I had such a great time with him being the master at camping on our camping trips. He came into Valerie's life & I knew how much he loved her & his little girl Anastasia. I am honored to call him a friend FOREVER!

John,Tara & Family, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Justin,although I never met him, from the words I've just read from others it sounds like he was quite an amazing young man. I will be praying you draw comfort and strenght in each other. God Bless!

Dear Uncle Justin,
Thank you for the great whirlpools in the summer and fireworks. Thank you for going kite- flying and camping with us. You also made me laugh. One time you scared us by showing up at our house as a girl: Goth Raggedy Ann. You were a very great uncle and will be greatly missed.

There are people in this world who leave very shallow imprints in one's life. Justin was not one of those; he left a very large imprint in every life he touched. I am proud to be one of those few people that got to be in his life. The one thing that i loved about Justin was that he would tell you exactly what he thought even if you didn't want to hear it. He was the best thing that

To My most amazing husband,

Throughout these short years you have shared your life with me and I must now survive your death. You have made me a strong woman and so survive I will though a piece of my heart will always be marked with a big tatoo that beats a single name, Justin.

I don't think you would be mad at me for what I am about to say and if you are well....as you once told me "why

Jus, all I can say is WOW!
What an amazing man you grew to become. I have so many crazy but loving memories of you throughout the years that will forever be in my heart.

You were my great debate partner and I am blessed to have the memories of times I was lucky enough to sit and talk with you about your perspective on life, religion, people and nature.

You were always so otherworldly and in so many ways

Dear Sue,

I'm sorry I did not have the opportunity of meeting and knowing your son, Justin. I have grown to love and appreciate you since we got acquainted during the process of losing our Aunt Mil last May. My heart goes out to you and all of those who loved Justin and are hurting so deeply. My prayer is that those angels, and the God who sent them, who have always been there to comfort and protect you during your

Dear Valerie-
Justin and you were among a special group of "kids" whom I have always remembered from my Aquaria Unlimited years. He was such a sweet guy in his own way. He was such a good worker; so neat and clean and willing to go the extra mile to help us. I thought of him as more like a son than and employee. He went through some tough times but always worked them out and had a ready smile.
I
