Not sure what to say?

I did not know Justin personally. I was a Captain in the Army leading a specialty platoon on patrol with Justin and COL Thomas Felts on the fateful day he was called home to the lord. I think about them often and know they are walking with the lord. I truly hope his wife and family are doing well. I pray for them. God bless.

I miss you so much . You were my favorite cousin. Not a day goes by I don't think of our teenage years . I love you so much. Proud of you

I miss you so much cuz .. your laugh and silly jokes I will never forget God bless I love you

Not a day goes by that I don't think about you. I remember playing basketball with you just hours before everything happened. I honor you by telling my daughters how I served with an actual hero. Rest easy brother.
