    To all the family of JJ our nephew . We are sorry for the loss of such a talented young man in many ways! JJ will be missed by all who knew him . It crushes our hearts to know that you are gone. You will always be in our hearts. As Revelation 21 verse 4 gives us a hope for the future. " And he shall wipe away every tear from their eyes,and death shall be no more,neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain,anymore: the former things will have passed away. We love you JJ! Love you Donnie and Beverly

    I don't know JJ personally, but I did know him through one of my friends. He was the most kindest, warmhearted soul I have encountered. I am so terribly sorry that he's gone, and I know how hard it is to lose a family member. The pain stays with you, and some days it may barrie you. Please stay strong and know that you will learn to grow with this grief. My heart is with JJ and his family and friends. Sending you a lot of love, light, and support.
