Justin and I never met, but I’ve come to know him through his friends and family. In 2011, I rode in Justin’s honor during the 2011 Police Unity Tour. June 27, 2016, marks the sixth year since we lost Justin. I’ve had the privilege of meeting some of his friends and family. They are warm and wonderful people. God bless you Justin, your family and friends. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
