    Dear Paula, and family, I am so saddened to hear about the loss of your son, I cannot imagine the devastation that you are feeling, the depth of what is so consuming and why this happened, understand that the cosmos and all that is good will be helping Justin find his place, I live with an incredible nurse who has seen a lot of death in her life. Working in hospice she has helped me to understand that death is only the beginning of the next life. There are many loved ones waiting for him to take care of him and make sure that he is comfortable. That is one of those unexplainable passages of life that happens to all of us and while this happened now no one will know, but understand that for whatever reason he was taken, he is at peace. I am sure that he would want you to know that he is safe and secure and that you should understand and try to to find some comfort in the memories that you share of him, and not in the sadness of why it happened.
