Your smile will be missed always.
September 19, 2019
For 20 years and working on the other side of the bar I have always been honored to work cases while sharing the philosophies of the law with Justin Lord. He was honest, intelligent, personable and tenacious about his work.His smile and sincere friendliness were noticed by all. I am praying for Andrea, and all of his family during their grieving process. Justin's life is one to be celebrated because he has left a trail of honesty with the criminal justice system at Frank Crowley Courthouse. RIP my friend. I love you as a colleague.

Dear friend I miss you. You were such an amazing lawyer and an even better person. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and you.

When I wrote my office-wide farewell email, when I retired, I made a reference to thanking those members of the office who had gone out of their way to make me feel welcome, and I said in that reference, You know who you are.

You were at the top of that list Justin. You were so friendly, inclusive and supportive, of me, and you did everything in your power to make me feel welcome in Dallas County. After over 20 years having risen through the ranks, from bottom to top, in Bexar County, it was a more difficult transition than I could've ever imagined upon arriving in Dallas County.

However thanks to you and your kindness and the friendship you extended to me, you made that transition so much easier than it could've been otherwise.

The point is that you were so kind to me, and I'm only one of many who experienced that same grace and kindness from you. I know I'm only one of many. I know you probably didn't think anything of it, because that was simply your nature. What was an outstanding experience to me was probably insignificant to you. For me, your extension of friendship was an outstanding and very significant event, and memory. I'm sure you're unaware of how much it meant to me, precisely because your extending that welcoming offer of friendship was something you did every day, for many folks, inside and outside the office.

I regret that I never really took the time to tell you how much you meant to me, that I never took the time to search you out and find a private moment to thank you, hopefully without becoming too emotional in the process.

The world is a sadder, less wonderful place without you in it with the rest of us.

I'm taking from this how important it is to say those things to folks then and there. I made the mistake of thinking there will always come along the perfect opportunity to tell you, or someone like you, how much you, or they, mean to me, or mean to us as a society.

We are so much poorer for not having you with us in the world, on a daily basis.
