Posted Condolences:


  1. We are so sorry for your loss. Sending our prayers and sympathy to all.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. Hugs my friend

  3. My deepest sympathies to the family

  4. I am so sorry to hear about Justin. Growing up, I too remember his love of animals. He would greet everyone with a big and bright smile. Always so sweet. Thinking of you all.

  5. My sincere sympathy to all of Justin’s family. I remember Justin well, as when I served as Pastor at Trinity Lutheran, he would often be in attendance at worship (in the back left corner of the sanctuary), and faithfully come to the front of church during Holy Communion, with his hands open and his head slightly bowed, and smiling, receive the body and blood of Jesus Christ. I would always say his name. He was gentle and kind, in times that I would see him at Fourth Corps too. Justin was a treasure in our midst, and, I’m sure, in yours. He will remain a treasure in our hearts, but now he is a treasure in heaven, greeted by Jesus with open hands of healing love, called by name, and loved forever. God bless you all.

  6. With Sympathy
