I have known Justin since he was 13 years old, we have been good friends we have lost touch we have reconnected just like all friends do. But just like true friends we were always Brothers to each other. If I needed a bouncy house or something for my son Justin was right there no matter what he had. I'm proud to be a friend of his I'm proud to know him and I'm going to miss him tremendously rest in peace my friend.

I will always Remember the fun times we had growing up. From the creek out back, to the seal pond, to the end of the street games of baseball we played. As time sent us our separate ways I still thought of you often and waited for the day we could hang out and be like old times. I know your with pops now and I will have to wait to see you two again. Until then, I will miss you buddy.
