|Let the memory of Justin be with us forever|
"I drive by this man's memorial almost every day. I have been meaning for a long time to look up Justin. It is clear from the way his roadside memorial is tended to that he is very much loved and truly missed. Rest in Peace, young man."
"Dear Justin, this has been a really long emotional week for me. I know you already know this because you are watching me from Heaven. As you know, your daughter and her mom and step husband seemed to have moved right down the block from us, in our same subdivision. I need your help son, please help me stay strong and to continue to keep my distance so as to not cause her mom and step dad to move out of our subdivision and go into hiding again. Please watch over me and please ask God to help me get through the horrible pain I have been in for over a week now since I found out they had moved 2 blocks down from us in the very same subdivision. I love you Justin, and I just need to know that you are watching over the situation with loving care. I could really use one of your big hugs today. I have been in tears for over a week. I wish I could see Makayden, but I am going to keep my distance.I hope I am doing the right thing, please help me son. All my love, Mom"
"Justin, I never had the oppertunity to meet you in person, but I feel like I've know you all your life. First of all, I'd like to say Happy Birthday to you yesterday!! I sent you a birthday card on FB to your mom. I'm so sorry you had to leave so young. It's hard to deal with losing a child, too soon, but with us mothers, any age is too soon. I've seen many pictures of you as a newborn, and on up. I've also made several pictures for your mom of you and your beautiful daughter. You would be so proud of her right now, as she's growing up so fast. It's really harder on your mom than it is you though, because you're with your Heavenly Father!! My daughter Candy, is also there with you too. I think it's harder losing a child at the age of 21, than at my daughters age. She is forever 41 and has two children. One son Braxton, who was 21 when she left us, and a daughter Micah who was only 12 at the time. It's really hard on the ones left behind. I bet you and Candy are "Dancing In The Sky" and "Singing In The Angel Choir"!! One day your mom and I will see you and Candy again, along with all your family members!! We just hold on to the PROMISE that, God, He Knows What He's Doing!!
"I don't know anything personally about Justin. But having the mother he has and his daughter I'm 100%sure he knew great love. I love his momma my sister in angel mom's ,she's one of a kind full of love ,pain ,memories sorrow but you Justin. We're lucky enough to have a wonderful mother who's love is never ending and I know someday your daughter will be back home with grandma where she belongs a real home of love...."
"I did not know Justin personally but I lost my son at 22 to car wreck almost 2 years ago and Michelle has talked to me a lot and helped me through some dark days. Just through her I feel like I know him and his gentle personality. My heart still goes out to the family. (Hugs)"
Today you turn 29 and I am hoping that you are singing and dancing up in heaven with the angels! Happy Birthday Justin, I love you and cherish the time we had together. I sure wish it would have lasted longer. I wish you and I both got to see Makayden grow up to be the beautiful young lady she will someday be. I know you arare watching over your daughter from heaven and I know you keeping her safe. I sit here and wonder what kind of man and father you would be today. I know you were such a good father to Makayden while you were alive and I bet you would be an even better father now. You are the best father in the world in my eyes. You always put her needs first. Justin, I miss you so very much and I hope that you are proud of the person I am today. I know yo are watching me from heaven and I know you can see my daily pain and tears. I just miss you so very much son and it doesn't seem to be getting any easier as time goes by. Anyway, it's your birthday and I put up some beautiful flower baskets on your cross and I am hoping they will not die out there by the side of the road hanging from your cross. They sure do look pretty out there. I hope you like them. I am sorry it was so windy that 2 of your balloons blew away and the other two deflated. I brought them home with me today and saved them like I do everything else I bring home that I put on your cross. Happy Birthday in Heaven Justin! I love you with all of my heart!
"Hey Bro, just wanted to drop in and let you know I was thinking about you, anytime I have to do repairs around the house, I can't help but think how great it would be if you were here, despite being your older brother, you taught me a lot when it came to things like this, miss you."
"My condolences go out to the family and friends of Justin. From reading what was written about him and looking at the photos I know he is missed and loved by many. No matter what, it can truly be said that death is an enemy and son it will be brought to nothing (1Cor. 15:26). I have found much comfort in the Bibles promise of a resurrection hope of our loved ones at John 5:28, 29 and hope you will too. Death was never a part of Gods original purpose, in fact he yearns to soon bring an end to it and the suffering it causes your family and friends. Revelation 21:4 states: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I did not know Justin, but I read what was written about him and I hope these scriptures will help to bring some comfort knowing that others care. If you would like to learn more about the Bibles promises and the hope it brings, please feel free to contact me."
"To the family of Justin,
It is unnatural and heartbreaking to lose a loved one in death. The good news is that God's purpose is to resurrect the dead to live on earth again. This was demonstrated in the Bible when several people were resurrected to life on earth. One example is that of Lazarus. (John 11:11, 38-44) I hope that these verses give you hope, just as they have given me."
"Austins gonna live in hot pink house with hot pink car with hot pink clothes we still chuckle about this to this day miss u always your pal Amanda"
"Justin I didn't know you but I hear alot of great things about u rip"
"Justin.. I never met you .But the impact you have left with your family you must have been a great person .... Keep a look after your mother she misses you...."
"Dear Justin, my precious son, forever 21, the memory of the day you passed is embedded in my memory forever, like a reoccurring nightmare that just keeps haunting me daily. Not a day goes by that I don't replay that memory through my mind. You were and still are an amazing son, father and friend to all who had the opportunity to meet you! Justin has a beautiful daughter named Makayden Roquel whom is forever going to have to live her life without knowing how much you loved her, and without your guidance. Makayden was and remains your one true love! Your love for her was shown in every moment you shared with her, and I pray that due to how young she was when you passed, that she has some recognition in her memory of the love and time the two of you shared with one another. I also pray that through this memorial site that his family members and friends will take the take the time and be able to share with his daughter Makayden, and also with his other family members and friends the memories and stories they have about Justin that they can post on this site so that we can keep Justin's legacy alive and be passed on and remembered forever!"
Have a suggestion for us?
