    I seriously know what numb is now ...I keep looking out in my yard for that white Camaro...or a text or phone call from next door saying Mama hook me up with sum snacks and something to drink...it's like I'm in a nightmare hoping to wake up soon and hug my Jubby Wayne....I used to grab him food when I headed home and he used to give me that lopsided smile when I brought him his favorite food from Novroskys....chicken fried steak baked potato....I'd go in his room and he'd say what do I owe ya ...I'd tell him about 12 bucks ....he'd reach in his wallet and pull out a dollar ...sumtimes I got 2 dollars ...he'd slide it across his desk and say ok Mama make it work ....I'm so thankful he lived either with me or right next door...he was always close to me...I did get a comforting message from someone he worked with...he said Justin told him often how he loved his family and how he was always laughing and smiling and he told my husband ...Justin loved his Mama dearly ...told him that's why he always stayed close to me...those words made me smile...he was a Mama's boy and he was a good one...the best...I miss and love him so...gonna still get that baked tater ...share it with his 2 dogs he loved them so much.

    I was very close to Justin. Me logging on to my computer and seeing Justin posting squad all over the chat is something I won't have anymore, but will cherish it for the rest of my life.. Justin was such a good friend to everyone he met and played with. He could make anyone laugh and had such good character. I'm going to miss you so much buddy. You mean a lot to us, and we will love you forever.

    Although we weren’t as close as he was with the guys, I still thought of him as a really good friend. We would all play video games together. And even when people weren’t so nice to me in high school, Justin was never one of them. He was always nice to me and I will always appreciate that. He even went out to eat with the squad for my birthday. He was a good friend and a great guy. We will always miss you & love you, buddy. ❤️

    I guess you can say we had like a time set on when to play video games. We would get home from work and be ready by 7 PMish and start gaming. I knew as soon as I saw on Discord, Justin would either say "Where you at D-Wayne?" or "Squad" haha. Everyday. I will always cherish the memories I made with him. He was like a brother to me. Love ya man.

    I coached Justin in baseball when he was a small child. He was a joy to be around. This breaks my heart for his mother, father and siblings. Prayers for the family to find comfort. I know he will be missed.
