Tom, we love you and hurt and share your grief with you. We’ve known you for over 30 years and Justin since he was a little boy. Just like his father he could light up a room anytime he walked into it. We can remember nothing but good times and that’s what we’re going to focus on. We remember fishing, fish fries, bbq’s and many other good times with your whole family. To us he was just like one of our own children in fact he grew up with them. You have our deepest condolences and know that we’re here at anytime day or night. We love you brother and our prayers go out to you and your family.

Justin was one of the most caring souls that I have ever come across. Funny, deep and loving. There wasn’t a subject he wouldn’t or couldn’t talk about. Justin loved his family so very much. Each friend he made, he held in his heart forever. He wanted wonderful things for those he held dear. I will miss him greatly. Love and light to his family and friends. May we all remember the light he was, even when he himself had some of his darkest days.
