"Hello my dear brother,
Just wanted to stop by and let u know your in my thoughts with another holiday without u just breaks my heart more and more everyday for mom and dad because D they miss u so much and would do anything they could  do  to have u back  I know it's selfish to say because obviously  you were needed more in heaven but the pain and he emptiness  does not go away or could ever be filled by anyone and time isn't helping so we r still as lost as we all were the day u left. So I know I always ask  you the same thing but stay close to Mom and Dad and please try to help them ease some of their  pain if it's possible  never forget whether here or not we all love you the same and always will and we miss u terribly  until we meet again fly high my sweet brother and shine"

"D!!!! It's hard to believe how long you've been gone ! I have so many memories that have you in them , you were like my uncle , brother , co worker and  friend all rolled into one. I've had so many good times with you in the fire dept and you actually was the one that got me in the porta tank for my rookie dumping ( a couple years after me first starting !! Lol) , softball games and how close our families are and have been . I always looked up to you and treasured your company and friendship !! I miss your jokes and smartass remarks ! Lol . I rushed to the hospital when I got the call about you passing and I just couldn't believe it ...... it was like time was moving in slow motion. I prayed over you and asked God to except you into the kingdom but I knew I didn't have to ask on your behalf cuz he already had you with him no doubt! I was so nervous to officiate your services I could only try to find the words to be worthy of the job I had. I hope I made you proud brother . I hate that your gone and not with us here but I know thats my own selfishness speaking because I know you are home now where the Bible promises all Gods children will be without pain and the worries of our world . You are at the creators right hand in all his glory and now your glory also ! You are where you should be yet it's sooner than we would ever want you to leave us here . There's no doubt in my mind you watch over everyone from your new station assignment above us making sure we are safe guiding us and communicating with us in your own special ways . We will forever miss you my friend till we meet our end here and cross the river to see you on the opposite shoreline waiting to greet  us home as we transition in our journey . I can't wait to give you a big bear hug ! I know my grampas rite there with you too ( help keep him under control up there please D! Lol) Till we meet agian my friend ..................."

"dj i cant not seem to come to understand why you had to leave us as the hurt is not getting any easier just worst because i cant see your smiling face or hear your wise cracks.Especially if i need a bear hug who is gonna give me them i lay in bed at night thinking of all the things we did as kids and i remember playing tackle football in the middle of the road in winter time and everyone wanted DJ on there team i wonder why that was lol.I remember the fights we all used to get into who was there to break it up Dj as you always used to say knock the shit off and we always did because we were scared lol...god i love you and miss you so much it tears me up inside.We all had our ups and downs but when there was a problem we all came together and helped out..I remember being at the hospital the first time you were in december i sat at your bed side and you were complaining about the oxygen you had to wear I said you need it so use it then the last time you got out of the hopsital Jim and I came got you and when i got there you were already dressed and i said you didnt wait for anything to get dressed you said you wanted out of that place then you complained they brought you down in a wheel chair boy you didnt like that but dealt with it,......I was talking with mom awile back and she said she had a dream you were walking up my driveway asking her where she has been she said wendys lol you know where to find them and we were watching tv one day and the tv switched channels and we know it was you not wanting to watch that tv show that is ok come visit us anytime day or night bubba as we all miss you and love you dearly rest in peace my sweet brother hugs and kisss sent to heaven for you xooxoxoxoxoxoxo from all of us I love you bubba"

"My dearest brother we can't say how much we miss u because we can't find the words:'( Everyone says that time will heal all wounds but loosing u had to have the been the worst thing I have ever had to endure in my life... When I was younger I always thought all the people I loved the most would live forever :( and in which case I wish this was the case with you... Dj I know u r watching over us everyday and doing your best to keep us out of harms way but I would give anything to have you back here to not have to feel this pain anymore or to have to wear you around my neck to keep you close...  Maybe I'm being selfish because the saying is only the good go fist but I want you here in the flesh to see you smile to hear your laughter to be able to hear your voice.. (wishful thinking) So with all this said rest easy My Brother fly high and shine on I love you and miss you so much... Until we meet again please make us understand why u had to go and help us with the pain... Butterfly kisses"
