"All Is Well
Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used
Put no difference in your tone,
Wear no forced air of solem"

"Well JJ! HAPPY BIRTHDAY :~) If what I see now is the reflection of what you were here to create, you were indeed, a very successful man. You left happy and strong children and a wife that will ALWAYS love you. They are a fun bunch and you are missed!"

"I attended North Moore High School with JJ, he was one of those people that was a friend to everyone regardless of what clothes you wore or group of friends you belonged to. JJ was a very sweet, kind & caring person. We lost contact after school and found each other on Facebook not too long ago. I was not fortunate enough to know his family, but my prayers are with you during this time.."

"I'm not the best with words but I wanted to say that I didn't know JJ all that well but I know his wife, daughter, stepson & father-in-law well. I love them like my own family. I was there when Ashleigh received the call about his accident...her familys lives changed forever. I will never forget that day. I'm feel blessed to call Ashleigh my friend. If you need me I'm here. Love Melissa"

"I never met JJ. He, by all appearances, was a well loved and respected family man. In his wife's photo album, he always seems very happy. His children love him. His wife adores him. His family are pleasant folks and this may have much to do with JJ being a great guy to be around. He is missed. God be with you JJ!"

"I never knew JJ well, but I did know of him from Hunter and Ashleigh. He was an intelligent, good-hearted man...a brilliant writer, I've been told. He could be the sweetest thing ever...And since we share a birthday, perhaps I can celebrate him as well as I celebrate myself. God bless him in Heaven, and everyone who was caught up in his passing."
