Justin was like a brother to me, he was there when someone needed to talk about anything. It hurts my heart to know he is know longer with us. Justin was a admin to many of my groups on facebook that stand for truth. He was kind hearted and liked making people laugh. Justin was a true friend and brother to many of us. He enjoyed research and doing radio shows. He had a passion for working in his garden and growing peppers.
Justin you will be missed by many but you will never be forgotten. As you have given your time to us and have fought the fight of the New World Order you will always live in my heart brother. May you rest in Peace ... God needed a Angel and took you home. Until we meet again.
