Five years ago today this amazing man succumbed to a broken heart.

Our son, Justin was talented, brilliant, gifted, and tender-hearted. His guitar-playing ability, (I end the show with a clip of his music everyday), Harley motorcycle craftsmanship, and aerobatic piloting were admired by the best in those fields.

I never had a better road partner, and never will.

His mother and I were, and remain, so proud of him.

People die everyday from a broken heart. They come to the point where they believe the internal lies that things will never get better, and that the world would be better off without them. Ultimately, they choose a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

If you are hurting inside, Nancy and I want you to know how much you matter. Whatever you are going through you need to know your life has value and purpose, and even though they might not show it enough, you mean so much to the people around you.

Most of all you are never alone. The God who created you loves you and wants you to know He is right here right now.

Never give up. Keep going – you can do this.
