I met BJ when I was 17 years old, and he has been a part of our family ever since. Life will not be the same without him. BJ was the smartest man I know; knew everything about everything.
Although BJ sometimes had a gruff exterior, he had a heart of gold, and he would do anything for his family and friends.
I will miss his wisdom, humor, and most of all, his friendship.
I love you, BJ, and miss you terribly.
