"It seems that time in fact does not heal all wounds. My heart aches reading your obituary, as if you just passed. I still feel the pit in my stomach. And when confronted with pictures of you it is if the ground had dropped out from under me. It'll be nice to see you again, one day, past those pearly gates,. The winds of time may have blown me forward, but you'll always be the Clyde to my Bonnie. One day, you'll even meet my son... Crazy... Forever and ever babe."

"I don't believe that there is any way this will ever feel real to me. I'm still harboring this nagging feeling that you are some where close to me, just out of sight; behind the next door, or around the next corner. Justice, you made such a profound impact on my life and on the person I am now. I truly believed we would always find our way back to each other. I am PROUD to have known you."
"It has been a little over a year and I cannot even believe it is real. Your smile is what I think about every day and the little things that we shared together. We had a lot of good times and you always made me laugh with your witty sense of humor and the fact that you could come up with a solution to everything. I miss you so much. I love you! Love, Mom...xoxoxo"
