"Today makes it two years since you left this earth and my side. I miss and think about you every day. The time has not healed the pain and it still hasn't gotten any easier. I know that the only thing that keeps me going on is love. I know that one day I will be able to hold your hand again and we will then be together forever. You will always be my soulmate."

"Happy Birthday Sweetheart. I know that you were with us last night as Bentley and I were making your birthday cake. Bentley looked up at me and said, "Grandma, Poppie is happy we are making his cake." He also said, "Poppie said, I don't need help, I'm a big boy." He was letting me know you told him he could send his own balloon up this year without my help. I'm so glad your still watching over us and see all the great things these kids are doing. I miss you so much but your still close by when I close my eyes. I love you forever."

"Another year is more than half over and I can't believe how the time is passing by so quickly. I miss spending time with you, and will never understand why you had to leave us so soon. In just the past few months I know you were there to greet some of our friends and family. I can't wait for that big hug when God calls me home to be with you again, and this time it will truly be forever. I love you."

"DJ I know you see that we have a new sweet addition to our family. Danté looks so much like you. He reminds me so much of you. Good thing I don't believe in reincarnation, I'd swear he was you. I know that hairy little monkey is going to grow up to be like you. I'm going to make sure our grandsons grow up knowing who their Poppie was, and how hard you worked to take care of your family. They will be strong hardworking men just like you. I miss you and the time we still should have had together."

"Hi sweetheart, I was just going through facebook memories and so many things remind me of our time together. This time here without you sucks so much. I never in a million years would have imagined my heart could go through this much pain. Everyday without you hurts. It doesn't get easier, it just somehow is different. A lot of people tell me I have to let you go, that I need to move on with my life. I am going on the best I can, but nothing stops me from wishing you were here with me. We have so much going on. Sammy is having another baby, Bentley is growing up so fast, and so smart, Steffanie is definitely making you proud by getting her schooling finished. Budda is still working. I'm still waking up every morning which is a accomplishment all in it's own. I just want you here. I miss you so much and will love you forever!!!!"

"DJ this year has gone by so quickly. I can't believe it's been more than a year that I last got to look into your eyes. Not a day goes by that I don't miss you. It's still so unreal. I'm still waiting on you to come home.  I know we will be together again someday, and when we are we will hold hands forever. You will forever be my soulmate and the love of my life. I love you Tyger!!!"

"I just recently found out about the death of this great guy. He and the family would know me by a different name, Kaylan. I want to express my deepest condolences to the family that was once my extended family. DJ was a great man that treated me like i was a part of the family. It was such a shock to find out that a big part of my childhood was gone but i am so happy to know that i will see him again one day. I will miss him."

"What I remember of DJ in school was that he could sport the shaggy mullet like nobody could and always had a comb in his pocket. I'm sad to have lost touch over the years. DJ and Tara were the "Jack and Diane" of our generation. A love that the distance between Heaven and Earth will not deminish."

". Dj, always wore a smile, wasn't afraid to let people know what was on his mind. He went out of his to help others,even if some did not appreciate it. He loves his children and wife dearly. I was there to see how much he cared. He will be missed but he left a wonderful legacy.. his children,wife and grand kids. I will miss his silly ways ..."

"The many, many bus rides! One in particular, when DJ had a cast on his arm. Starting at the front of the bus, he walked the length to his seat in the back.  His arms were outstretched and he effectively clotheslined anyone dumb enough to be standing. Good times! Fly high, my friend."

"I'll admit, I lost contact with DJ thru the years.  But, I'll always remember a sweet guy with a friendly smile for anyone.  Thanks to Facebook,   I have been able to see his love for his family... his pride, his joy and his happiness.  I can only imagine the pain you're going thru, but I hope you all know DJ is never more than a thought or dream away."

"I never got to know DJ that well, but as my dad always told me.."You can tell a wood chopper by his chips" and I know if nothing else, DJ got up everyday and went to work, always held a steady job to provide for his family, In my book that is a fair way to measure any man. RIP..."
