We love and miss you every day BJ, but January 1st is always a day filled with sadness along with our lovely memories of the time we had you on Earth with us. It's still impossible to wrap our brains around the tragedy that took you from us. We love you, and are thankful for the happiness that will share when we see you again.
Love always, Your Family

We feel you with us in spirit and know you are so proud of your precious wife, daughter, parents, and sister. They continue to carry on your legacy of kindness and Christianity.
We love you BJ!

"B.J." I know that it has been 9 years now since you were taken from us, but know that you continue to inspire my family and I. Your wonderful heart still shines. Thank you for all your help with moving items upstairs. Our family continues to place a wreath at your memorial here in Monahans on the 1st of every year. I am retired now but I will never forget you and your kind heart

We love and miss you every day, but today we start the new year with a mix of sadness wishing we could turn back time and change what happened on that tragic day in 2006. You lost you life on Earth being the kind and giving guy you always were helping save lives so other families would be spared this pain. Thank God we know we will see you again. That is what helps us to continue to have joy in our lives as we carry on as we know you want us to.

BJ, I was just thinking about you and how it's almost summer time. Todd and I would be getting ready to come to Madisonvillefor the Summer. Footloose and care free all summer long. Swimming in the Tank. With Todd gone too; sometimes I feel so alone. You'll always be my best friend and brother! I love you my friend!

I’ve cussed, I’ve prayed, I’ve said goodbye
Shook my fist and asked God why
These days when I’m missing you this much.

Brad Paisley's "When I Get Where I'm Going" just came on and every time I hear this song, I think of you. I haven't heard it in ages! I was talking to someone recently about going to see Robert Earl Keen and I couldn't help but remember when the whole group went. That was such a fun night for all of us. Keep smiling down on us!
