  • I could have never asked for a better, more loving, cousin than Justin. He meant so much to me and I will never forget all of the laughs we shared. There are no words to describe the way he touched mine and so many lives out there in his short time with us. His beautiful smile would light up any dark room. He will be missed by so many and he will always be loved. We have another angel upon us so don’t be afraid to talk to him. He listens, trust me.

  • “I Want To Understand”

    Each night when I look up at the moon,

    I sit and wonder why you had to go so soon.

    There must be some reason as I try to understand

    Why this tragedy had to fall into God’s great plan.

    I miss you so much, I try not to cry.

    I know you are home now, but I can’t say goodbye.

    I miss your bear hugs and your beautiful smiles

    And how we would sit up and talk about the meaning of life

    For such a long while.

    I don’t know how to feel, I am falling apart.

    I guess I should tell myself one thing you always told me,

    “Just follow your heart”.

    Remember when we were little and you taught me how to pray?

    You explained to me it was so important to do it everyday.

    Right now, all I want to do is pray.

    I pray someday I can tell you all the words I didn’t get to say.

    I am trying so hard to be so strong.

    It’s just so hard to believe I won’t be seeing you for so long.

    My heart is so sad and it is crying out to you.

    I use my faith and try to smile because I know you would’ve wanted me to.

    One last thing I want to say for now as I shed another tear,

    You better be welcoming me at the gates of heaven someday,

    I’ll see you when I get there.

  • We are all so sorry to hear about Justin. My best memory of Justin was as a little boy in his pajamas saying bedtime prayers with his mom, Kelly, and then kissing everyone goodnight. I saw his picture for the first time since the Meachams move to Washington. He looked to be that same sweet little boy that I once knew a long time ago. I’m so sorry for the tradgedy, I will pray for you all.

  • At age seven, Justin was the ring bearer at my wedding in 1986 . . . and a handsom lad he was. Separated from him since moving to the Washington, DC area in 1990, we managed to keep in contact from time-to-time by telephone. He always sounded mature and intelligent, positive and happy. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

  • Justin meant alot to all of us,but he was my first Godchild. I was choosen to be his Godfather.I know his faith was secure with the Lord.His compassion for others and his love was truly a gift from God.As a child, I nicknamed him Monkeybean and later called him my Gigalo. He had a heart of gold. In the Wizard of Oz, the wizard said to the Tinman,”and remember mt sentimental friend,a heart is not judged on how much you love,but how much you are loved by others.”It was so hard for Dorthy to say goodbye to her friends because they loved her so much. Saying goodbye to the scarecrow, she said to him,”I think I’ll miss you the most.”as she clicked her magic slippers,she made it home. Justin made it home, over that rainbow, and I think we all can agree,we all will miss Justin,the MOST! Uncle Chris.
