That is sad thing indeed.My mother is a hospital worker at St. Mary's Hospital and was working when he was brought in, she said unfortunatly there was not much they could do for him when he was brought in. I do know his age,but since it wasnt in the article i dont feel its apporiate for me to put but he was very young. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.

Just wanted to let everyone know that the Funeral Ceremony for Justin was very nicely done. It also was very nice to see such a turnout for Justin from other departments, I am sure his family didn't really know what to expect and to see the numbers that showed up for their son was overwelling.
