Over a month has past and I still think of you often. My dear cousin Julian was not just family, he was a great friend. He was proud of his family and proud to serve his country. Julian, I am honored to call you family. I never told you how proud I am of you for the things you've done. For this only child, you were brotherly and looked out even from far distances. I looked forward to seeing you more often given your recent move to MO. My little Danielle misses you immensely and so do the rest of us. We love you. Our prayers will continue for our family, especially Auntie Rosa, Joshua, Mariyah, and Michelle. Know he is resting peacefully in the presence of our Lord.

Hello, Joshua, keeper of the guest book. Just wanted you and the family to know that I did the altar flowers on June 29th in loving memory of Julian. I choose a plant called a Shooting Star Hydrangea. It has white, star-shaped flowers that literally shoot out of the plant's stems. How appropriate for a soldier, right? Yesterday evening, I planted the hydrangea on Trinity Episcopal Church property, behind our gazebo where it will be protected from some of our harsher weather. I will send you and yours copies of our bulletin through the funeral home. I was deeply saddened by news of his passing. Virginia Hudson

I did not know you personally but as a Army brother nay the good LORD above comfort and be with your family in these rough, difficult and trying days they are enduring. Your family finds great comfort in knowing your father at the gates of heaven waiting for you with his arms wide open to receive you. Thank you for your service to our country. My friend, son, brother, fiancé, uncle, nephew and extended family THANK YOU for the life you lived and the life time of memories you left for your family to treasure. One more thing, please have your dad and yourself look down on your family. RIP Brother.

I am deeply saddened by the loss of Sgt.McKinnon with whom I'd hoped to work on future Eagle Courts of Honor for my boy scout troop. I've been out of town from June 5 till June 14 and didn't know about this until today. My sympathy to his survivors.

Julian...I don't know where to start to tell you what is in my heart. I love you and am so proud of you and equally proud to be your Tia. Thank you for taking time from your busy work time to check on my while we were in country and for cracking jokes to make me feel better even if they were at my expense. Thank you for having lunch and dinner with me was great to have family to share a meal with while there. Thank you for listening to me when we made it back state side and understanding what I was going through and talking to you about. My heart breaks for our entire family but especially for your mom, brother and sisters to have lost you and your dad in such a short time. I'll miss your off the wall texts in Spanish which were really good I may add. Your uncle will miss your random phone calls, he enjoyed talking Army with you it took him back to the days he was in. He was so very proud of you just as he is of Joshua, we added all the years of military time the family has served which include Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines...330+ years that in itself is amazing and you are a part of that. You touched the lives of so many people in your young life as your mom told us you were destined to do great things and you did. I could go on and on but I bid you adieu for now keep watch over your Mother, sisters and brother and know you'll always be in our hearts. Rest in Peace Julian all my love Tia Pat
