"Hey Justin....I miss you. I've been thinking about you. I still can't believe you are gone. Its been four years now :( I wish Jordin got to know you better and I wish Sophia got to meet you. She would of loved you. I still talk to them about you about how you were such an amazing brother and uncle. The last time I saw you was Jordins 1 birthday party , I wish I could go back to that day and tell you how much I loved you :( I wish you were still here. There were times were we didn't get along but you still were always there for me. I love you!!"

"Hard to believe it has been 3 & 1/2 years that you have been gone.  It seems like just yesterday that I got a call and drove to the house to find that you were no longer with us. :'(  My heart is broken.  There is a whole there that will never be filled.  I  so miss your laughter and your goofiness.   But I see a lot of you in Lani.  Her looks, her joy, her laughter...they remind me so much of you.  I thank God that I got to give birth to you and have you in my life for 27 years.  They were roller coaster years...sometimes we didn't see eye to eye, but I never stopped loving you.  Wish I would have told you more while you were here how much you meant to me.  Please be there when any of our family members come that way.  I know if you are there...they will be overjoyed.  Praying that we don't lose anyone anytime soon, but you just never know.  And after you were taken so soon, people should expect the unexpected.  I love you so much and miss you every second of every minute of every hour of every day.  From now until forever.  <3"

""There is so much that was left unsaid...I still am in denial at times that you are gone. I wait for your text or wait to see you at my front door.  Today is 2 years that you have been gone.  I miss you and love you as much now as the day you were taken from me. It's not fair that you were taken so young.  I will never stop missing you.  I think you of you every second of every minute of every hour of every day.  Love you and miss you more than you could possibly know. <3  :'(""
