The God of all comfort understand your pain and is near those brokenhearted and crushed. He promises to be of comfort to you at this difficult time.

    I’m sorry for your loss. TJ and I grew up together and were very close. He was very passionate about going into the military. He was very smart and could anything he set his mind to. He would always go above and beyond what was asked.

    I loved TJ and enjoyed his oneriness and sense of humor. I liked his tickle me elmo laugh and his love for reading and knowledge. Ive never met someone so fasinated with the military guns and his vast knowledge of the entire scope of them. Although he is gone in body..his memories will last a lifetime.

    TJ you offered to help a delivery man at my house struggling without hesitation. You were the 1st young person I met after moving to Lexington & became a huge friend and savior for me. I will not ever forget your sense of humor, intelligence or hugs. I saw a huge potential in you to soar & become a great man. Oh my goodness, did you love to argue but that was your mind growing, exploring thoughts & the world. God had other plans & you left us all too soon. Sweetheart, I don’t know what your Mother will do without you…..

    TJ I just found out about your passing and what a shock it was to hear. Dustin will be devastated when I tell him later today, he so enjoyed the video game parties and was so sad when you moved away to Lexington so long ago. I will miss the talks we had and chats online I only wish I could have been there for you more. Thank you for the intro to Troop 611 as Dustin should be getting his Eagle very soon and if not for your Troop he never would have made it. You will be missed.
