JJ I am trying so to make sense of this and understanding God's purpose in such tragedy. I know it's not for me to question why but to accept it must be for some reason unknown to us all. You meant so much to so many people, and you were always a good friend to me. You and your Mom were part of the family to my Dad and me. The first time I met you I knew you were a good man with a loving soul, a heart of gold and a mind full of dreams and hopes. You were a leader and had strength, courage and loyalty. Very protective of your friends and loved ones. You were smart and capable of doing anything, being anything. Although you lost course at times walking the long, hard road and had some trouble finding your way...you always paid your dues and made things right, you were able to walk with your head up and were given the respect you had earned. You were loved and you will be missed, and hopefully you will continue to guide us with your light until we too join you on the other side. God Bless you and keep you. I thank Him for our paths having crossed again a few months ago after years of losing contact. I realize now why it happened that way. Peace eternal my Lil' brother.
