To the family and friends of Justin. Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. Nothing can prepare us for the pain that comes from losing a loved one. Please know that the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) sees your pain and longs to do something about it. The Bible gives us a hope for the future at Revelation 21:3,4 and John 5:28,29. May your precious memories give you strength and comfort during this very difficult time.

Susan, Joe and Aj my thoughts and prayers are with u. I love you all like family.
Justin was such a sweet guy. He always knew that when Susan and Susan got together it would always be an adventure. He use to laugh when I walked in the door. He would say, hey Susan its Susan. Then he would ask me what we were up to. Knowing that it probably wasnt going to be good. I will miss seeing him when I come over.
Justin, I will watch over your mom for u. I cant say it will be easy. U know when the two of us get together what happens. (LOL)
I know that Justin is in a wonderful place, and is looking down at his family with love.
Justin you will be missed by everyone. We love you and your family. Susan, Gary, Samantha & Steven Fearnow

My heart is breaking for you Susan, Joe, and AJ. This world has lost a great human being and has lost him far to soon.

Ithought a lot of Justin. He was always so kind and always smiling. I didn't get to spend a lot of time with Justin but the time I did get to spend with him was time making memories that I will cherish forever.

With deepest sympathy

Justin is someone that brought so much good into the world, and that will never be forgotten. Ever since the end of October, JJ and I would talk everyday, sometimes for hours on end. He was always eager to share about the happenings of his day, to let me know he cared about mine, and to throw in a joke (or five!). If you knew Justin, you know he was always trying to make other people laugh and smile.

He would tell stories about his brother, AJ, and how they would dominate battles together in Apex Legends and have bro nights amongst getting into other adventures. He often talked about his father, Joe, and his much anticipated trips to his favorite restaurant, Texas De Brazil, and his fishing memories. Daily, he would share stories of spending days and nights with his mom, Susan, and her partner, Rich. Whether it was getting his butt kicked in foosball, playing cards or heading to the campsite, he truly cherished every moment with each of you. He shared several stories of moving adventures, crazy times and just plain great moments with many of his good friends as well.

Justin was focused on being the best version of himself he could be, and his determination to do that, along with several positive choices he was making in his life were so inspiring to me in the time we were together.

While he may no longer be with us, I know that my best friend, and also the person I loved, will live on in my memories and all of yours. I know hes looking down from up above with his other love and forever companion (his dog, Chuck :p ) and will be with those of us who hold him so closely in our hearts, always.

Love you, JJ!
