Justin was such a kind and caring person, with many God-given talents. Listening to him play guitar and sing was such a lovely gift, and it regularly moved me to the point of holding back tears of joy. He often spoke of how much he loved his family and God, and he approached every stranger with an open and loving heart. May he rest in love and peace, and my sincerest condolences to his sweet family and to all who loved him.

Kim Sasser, Savannah, Ga

Bonnie, Eddie, Rachel- I am so very sorry for your loss. Justin was such a sweet boy. Even when I see his pictures, I still see that sweet little, shy boy that was in my kindergarten class. Rest assured, he is playing beautiful music in Heaven. I will be praying for God’s grace and His peace for your family.Courtney, I did not meet you, but you will certainly be in my prayers, as well. I am so very sorry you are experiencing the loss of your husband. Cling to God and family during this devastating time. God’ s Grace be with you !??
