"Today, I am writing about my son Chad. Today makes 3 years since we lost him that cold January morning.First, I want to thank everyone who has been there for his family since day one . I thank you from the bottom of my heart ! Losing my baby has been the most unbearable pain that I could have never imagined. That child had the best heart and always smiled all the time. Chad always wanted to help everyone. He loved his family with all his heart. I am so glad that Chad had the initiative to go to all the places he wanted to see . I know my son touched so many peoples lives and if he did you will never forget him. For me I still feel like it was yesterday when I got that horrible phone call at 7 AM that every mother never wants to get. I miss my child every single day and not one day goes by that he is not the first thing on my mind when I get up in the morning and the last thing when I go to bed. I have the picture of me and him on my nightstand along with his favorite stuffed animal when he was little ( bunny ). It is a comfort for me. Please keep us in your prayers and thoughts tomorrow as we attempt to get through the day. Thank you for caring about my baby and his family ! Smile when you think of him ! God bless each and everyone of you"

"I can't believe it has been Three years. I see so much of you in Parker. It's like looking at your "Big Smile"- we miss you so much. The pain of losing you will never go away. We love and miss you so much! Trevor has grown up so much. The boys talk about you all the time. You would be so proud of Sam, she has gone back to school and working so hard to try and make a good life for her and the boys, but that empty spot where you should be is so hard to think about. We love and miss you...Nana and Paw"

"Sweetheart it is getting so close to the day we lost you. This will be 2 years on 01/18/16. I love you and miss you so much. Nothing has been the same since the day you left. To mommy it feels like yesterday. I know that you are so happy in Heaven. It is the place we all pray to go when it is our time. Mommy really stopped feeling alive the day you died. I just wish so much I could hold you again in my arms. Mommy would not let you go. Everything is changing so much since you left. The boys are growing so much and are wonderful. They have moved into a new home to start a new part of their life without you. I know Heaven is wonderful and you are ok. That is the only content I have to hold onto now. Mommy will forever remember and miss you everyday of my life I have left . Love you my baby ! Mommy"

"I love you my baby. A year has come and gone and Mom still expects you to call or come to the door and say " Mom you here ?" I can't understand how I am suppose to be ok with never seeing you again on this earth. A mother's worst nightmare come true. I find comfort in remembering things you did and said when you were little. You will always be my baby . So precious and so smart. Everyone always said you and your brother were the perfect kids. Mom always thought so. You have to be so proud of Parker and Trevor . They have grown so much . They are perfect too. Momma misses you baby so much. Just wish I could hold you one last time, I will always be broken hearted not being allowed to. All my love sweetheart !   Mom"

"Writing something about Chad is so hard to do at times. I can't make myself as thinking of him not being here. He was a young man who loved life and tried to enjoy every minute. His smile would light up a room. There was nothing better than for him to show up with that big grin and say " love ya Mom ." I would give anything for that. Chad loved Samantha, Trevor and Parker so much. They were everything to him. The last few months have contained it making 4 months since we lost him, Mother's Day and now Memorial Day. I know I will never learn to live with this. I miss my son so much and it still hurts like it happened yesterday ! Love you sweetheart , Mommy misses YOU !"

"Phillip and I where never blessed with having a son of our own until Chad came into our lives.Words can not express how much we loved this young man.From the first time that we meet him and that wonderful smile of his,but mostly for the love that he had for Sam and the wonderful father he was to Trevor and Parker.A deep sadness will forever dwell in our hearts and a emptiness from losing the son we waited so long to have .We could not have loved you more had you been our own.Our sadness will be there through every memory that we share with the boys ,from ball games to learning to drive a car ,that first dance ,to first date, to Graduation and every milestone in between,you will be there in our hearts and we will always let the boys know how much you would want to be there for them.We love you so much,and there is not a day that will go by that you will not be in our thoughts and we thank God for blessing us with the memories that we have of you ,we love you always....NANA and PAW"

"Sandy, a friend sent me this a long time ago. Hope you don't mind me sharing this:
He was so very, very special
And was so from the start
You held him in your arms
But mainly in your heart
And like a single drop of rain
That on still waters fall,
His life did ripples make
And touched the lives of all.
He's gone to play with angels
In heaven up above
So keep your special memories
And treasure. them with love
Although your darling son
Was with you just a while
He'll live on in your heart
With a sweet remembered smile

If you need me - just give me a call. love  you"

"There are many things that come to my mind when I think of Chad. Mostly his big smile, laughter, sense of humor, kind heart and fun-loving personality. He was one of the nicest and sweetest people you could ever meet. Growing up to me he seemed just like another little brother because he was always around and playing with my brother. They had so much fun together and I got to witness and be a part of the fun times they had together. How they would sit for hours in Bub's room playing video games and eating pop tarts. How they would play basketball outside and compete with their game brackets. I can hear Chad's voice in my mind saying "Ganzaga" and "fredarickabob" in which they drew a face on a balloon and named the balloon fredarickabob when they weren't calling each other that. Chad was a little brother to me and as he got older and even if it had been a while since I seen him he was always the same. If he saw me out or came by the house he always had a smile and a hug and would say "I love y'all" when he would leave. This is just a few memories I have of Chad. He will always be missed by all especially the Varney family that he spent so much time with. My prayers are with all the family. Love ya Chad! You will never be forgotten and there will never be anyone else like you!"

"You know, I've thought about memories that Chad and I shared. I've tried my best to narrow it down to as much as this page can hold but the truth is I can't pinpoint or even begin to single out any memory. Chad, you were my brother. We may not have been blood, but regardless, you were my brother. I remember so many great things. From being little kids and camping out in your yard all the way through high school and after. To try and encapsulate you and the impact you had on my life is impossible. We spent virtually every day together for a long time and all of this is still so surreal to me. I miss your smile, the only smile in the world like it and it was always on display. I miss your ability to make me smile when I didn't want to. You were a true friend and a truly excellent boy and man. I wish I had another day with you to tell you these things instead of letting time slip away and losing touch with you. I will never, never forget you my friend and my brother. Until the day I am laid to rest you will be my brother, my friend, and always in my mind. I love you so much and I miss you more then I could ever say. For the ones you left behind: know that your son, your husband, your grandson, your father was a truly good man and there has never and will never again be someone like him."

"When I look at these pictures of Chad , it's so hard to believe all this has happened,  seems like a few years ago and he was in grade school.When I look at his smile and his eyes, I see you Sandy, Chad is basking in the warmth of GOD'S eternal love now, with an eternal smile on his face.  Sandy,  my most precious friend, I love you and if you ever need anything that I can help you with, I am only a message or call away."

"Ashton spent a week in the truck with his Dad, who spent a lot of time with Chad driving the same routes. Ashton LOVED Chad...he came home talking about all the funny things Chad would do or say and how much fun he was."

"I have so many memories of Chad...I can't say I have a favorite because they are all so good. He always had that big smile and could make you laugh even if you didn't want to. You couldn't help but love him!"

Chad Justice and me and Josh McCown when we were younger. I'm so thankful I got to know Chad as a child and an adult. Most of my memories at Runyon involved him. Praying for his family.

"My son Chad always had a smile and a hug for everyone. He loved people and he loved his family. Chad had a unique ability that made everyone love him. That smile would just over take you.
