    Brenda and Larry,

    Thinking about you and your terrible loss. Such a sad time.

    At work, I enjoyed talking to Larry about his family, especially his children. He loved them all. My good friend Larry always had a joyous story about his family and friends, that is one thing I really miss during this time of stay at home.

    Please let me know if I can assist in any way.

    I will forever miss you Justin. There’s no other on this planet like you. Your light was so bright, yet you were so humble. You showed love to me and my children that we will carry with us always, as part of who we are now. Because we are all the better for having had you in our lives. There’s so much more to say, but I will do that privately, for me, you, and the kids. My prayers go out to all your family, I am so sorry for your loss. He is our angel now, watching us from afar, or sometimes maybe even standing right beside us as we cry, wiping our tears as you once did before. Rest easy my sweet friend. You’re free now, in the biggest sense of the word. Enjoy those wings baby. FLY!

    The family of Ms. Freddie Butler extend our deepest sorrow for the life loss of our family member Justin. Justin was Freddie’s nephew, because she is Al Kennedy’s sister. We spent lots of time with Justin in his early years. He was a very loving boy that grew up to be a very loving man. We will surely miss him. Our deepest apology for not attending Justin’s service…we did not know. Our hearts are with his family and his children during this difficult time. God bless you Justin. We love you!!
