I love you so much, yesterday, today and forever. You brought me so much joy and happiness. I will remember all the good times we had. You made me so proud. I hope you are in a better place now.



Great times, great memories.



It was wonderful to know you, even for a brief time. We will not forget the good times we shared with you.



My name is Will, or Willie to some. I only met LJ, the grown man, in the last year or so and was immediately fond of him and felt a connection borne of compassion for those who suffer or are stricken, yet still their Hearts remain golden and seem innocent. I couldn't help but begin including him often in my prayers. A simple weekend of helping him to a clinic for treatment and an ensuing conversation we shared,and he had won me over and touched my Heart. His humaness and dignity in his condition struck me and impressed me; he softened my Heart. To have the privilege to know him in this Life, although his was cut short,and to be a help to him and share time and a moment of prayer with he and his Family will Forever affect my memory of him and this time in our lives. He was a Good Soul and will be remembered and missed... Love to you LJ and Family



LJ, what is there to say? My life is forever changed. I will love you forever, and I promise I will never forget you like you asked me in the end when you said "Mom don't forget me." I never will. I will miss watching Godzilla with you as well as the many talks about WWII and politics. But most I will miss you and Tom and the way you and him got along, buddies for life! Enjoy your new life being cancer free. Also like we told each other you take care of George and me and Tom got the Ashman. Love you forever!! Mom
