    Sending prayers and deepest sympathy to you in the loss of this fine young man. I didn't know him, but I can't even imagine how difficult a time this is. Many thoughts and prayers are with you. Your minister told us about his passing.

    I went to school with JJ and I am so very grateful that I got to be a friend. JJ was so kind to me and everybody he knew and always kept a smile on his face. Everyone in one act considered eachother family and I am very grateful that I was able to be a part of that family and have someone like JJ there to brighten the mood. He was such an amazing classmate and I will miss him dearly.

    JJ was one of my closet friends when I went to warren, I never knew him as mean or unkind to anyone he always had a smile on his face and he always made the best out of everything. He was honestly such a good friend and he will be missed.

    I went to school with J.J. And I'm glad I got to become his friend. He may have been shy and quiet but once you got to know him he was a nice and caring young man. I will really miss him. I am glad to call him my friend. I wish I would have gotten to know him so much better then what I did. He such an amazing and sweet young man.
