To Emily and all of BJ’s family,
Years ago I had the sweets young man in my pre-school class at the Methodist Church in PTC. He was kind, smart and we all knew he was going to be very successful in his years ahead. After pre-school he went on through his years in elementary, middle and high school. College and his life as husband and father. His parents always very proud. It is with great sympathy and heart ache I read of his passing. He touched my heart those many years ago and again reading of all his achievements. God bless you all. To his parents, my heart is heavy thinking of the loss you must feel. Just know he will always live on in our hearts.
