  • I am so sorry to hear of your loss (and my loss) of Justin. Although I just met him about 8 months ago he made a PROFOUND impact in my life. I have the same illness that took Justin from us. We talked many times about our health struggles. He was a true inspiration to me. No matter if he was recovering and dealing with a health scare worse than mine at the time, he always offered me advice,comfort,and with a smile ! After my last hospitalization I wanted to just give up, and still do at times. Some of the things I had in front of me to face he already faced as if it was as siimple as removing a splinter. It is because of him that I could face some of my own health scares and not just give up like I still want to do everyday. I will keep him close in my heart,amd know that while im having a bad day or scary procedure he is right there with me giving me a pep talk, and I can take a deep breath and ask myself ‘((What would Justin say ).just know that he will ALWAYS be with me through the rest of my journey, until I reunite with him again. He will continue to give me strength. My one regret is I don’t think Justin realized what he did for me and how much I cared, because humble Justin was just being Justin. If it comforts any of your hearts i am sure Justin made a difference in many lives, but he 100% made a differnce in my life and will continue to do so. I LOVE YOU JUSTIN ! RiP.

    • Thank you: Debbie Hoffman For being there for my son. Someday I hope to meet and talk to you. Bill Adkins sr

  • I miss my son, I’ll never get over this. This is worse than a bad dream. I’ll never be the same. I think about all the good memories that we had. We always went to the same events year after year. Concerts, festivals , car shows. Anyting I was able to do with him , we did. When somebody needed something , I always volunteered his services., to fix things that no one else could. He would always show up to save someone’s day. Justin I’ll keep an eye on Jaelyn. I’ll try to make sure she’s always alright., the best I can. You know this is hard for me to do without any tears. Rest in peace son. I’ll be there soon. I love you Justin Oh, missing you a lot. Dad !!! I’ll write again soon.🌈
