D.J. I got to visit you in Ohio shortly after you were born, and through the years I got to spend some very special times with you, I still think of you quite often with loving memories. I wish we had been able to spend more
time together, but as Gram Marchisio says, God must have needed you
for a special reason. Will always love and miss you!

Hey brother, sitting here again, working late at the shop. Wishing you were here helping me packing up the shop and move over the next month or so. Its bitter sweet as I still find things here that you help me build and set up here at Crossroads Productions; as I pack it all up and struggle to find another shop, I wish you were by my side. Soon I have to take apart the huge loft deck we built together in the beginning. Just not the same with out you my friend, I love you brother, I never stop thinking about you my friend. My youngest son Dexter Jeremy Cross "DJ" that I nick named after you is hell on wheels and is an amazing kid. All of the other kiddos miss there uncle DJ. We all love you and miss you.
I will see you again some day buddy,
