Dear Mark and Justin,

Although I did not know Anthony, I remember him as a child. Your family lived on my street for a number of years. As I was going through the photo gallery it all came back. I remember that smile! I remember Justin, Anthony and his Mom...walking and riding bikes up and down Hillside Road. Words cannot express the sorrow in my heart for you. May you take comfort that Anthony is once again walking with his Mom in the hands of God.

Sincerely,
Cris Johnson
