  1. Janis, Ron and Family: We were so saddened to learn of the untimely passing of Justin. Please accept our deepest and most sincerely condolences and sympathies. Justin was always so loving and accepting and we feel so very fortunate to have been a part of his life. We will truly miss his smile, laughs and hugs that he always shared with us all. Justin was loved by our family and children as they grew up together. We cherished our trips to California and all the fun times, even including the antics of Justin and our son Scott. Scott thought highly of Justin and will greatly miss seeing him as we all will. Our thoughts and our minds are with you Janis and Ron at this time. Lori and Cindy will be attending the funeral and although Jean and I will be unable to make it we send all our love and best wishes. Dennis and Jean (8-6-09)

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with all who mourn Justin. I met him once and in shaking his hand I was immediately taken by his infectious smile and gregarious personality. I was so sorry to hear of his untimely death. I immediately called many of my friends and family (none of who knew him) and asked them to add Justin and all his loved ones to their prayers. Please take comfort in knowing that tonight many strangers are praying for him and for all of you who held him so dearly in your hearts. God bless you all who knew him and loved him. Please also take comfort in the fact that he touched many lives and will be greatly missed.

We are very sorry we can’t be there tomorrow. Love, Jule and Ryan

  4. Dear Janis,Ron,Angela and Tyson, I was so shocked to hear of the passing of Justin. I grew up next door to Ross and Erin Murray,and knew Justin through them both.

  5. Dear Janis, Ron, Angela and Tyson, What a deep saddness I felt when I heard the news of Justin.

  6. My Dear Friend Janis, I’m so very sorry. Words can not express how I feel. Im with you in thought and in my heart. I just can’t believe what I read today. I remember when you just came to California from Utah and my Mom was an HR Manager at TRW and she called me and she said call this new girl…. She is your age and seems very nice and has a son the same age as yours. I did. You and Jusin and Kenny and myself became very close friends. The boys were only about 3 years old. They played at your apartment and we enjoyed our time together. Only about 2 weeks ago I thought about you and the kids. I started to call you and I didn’t because I was so busy at work. I wish I would have. Your in my thoughts and prayers. Remember the good times and keep Justin in your heart as will I. God bless you and your family at this time of great sadness. With love and friendship, Vicki

  15. I just heard today from Janis and I am still in shock. Justin was one of the most influentual people in my life, unfortunently things took a decidedly bad turn at the end of our relationship, but he was a great love of my life. I’m grateful we had a chance to reconnect, heal and find our peace before the end, I’ll take comfort in that, along with my belief that he’s in a better place now without the pains and misery of his Earthly exsistence. I’m glad he was doing so well and went out on a high note, he’d be pleased with that. He’d want to be remembered with love and kindness, and that is how I’ll remember him. You are in my thought and prayers and I loved you.

  16. JD was one of the most free spirited persons that I have ever met. I miss him, and wish more people could have known him the way I did….as a real friend. He made me see the beauty in the smallest things in life.

  17. I miss you Justin! There’s so many times I want to call you and I can’t. You’ve been in my dreams and I hang onto you because I love you and I always will
