Although I only met Justin a couple times, his mother Debbie is my very dear friend and it is through her I feel I know him and feel we all have suffered a huge loss. For one so young, he did so much to serve our country and touch so many lives. He will be greatly missed by all who were part of his life. My deepest condolences go out to all his family and friends. His loss will leave a hurt that will never go away completely but will hopefully be replaced by all the love and memories each of you had while he was living. Justin will live on in his son Nolan and I pray that may ease some of the hurt. Love and prayers to you all!
