"Not a day goes by that we don't think of D.J. He is a hero in everyone's heart and it was such a tragic way to lose him. He was the best cousin anyone could ask for!!! I miss him very much. What hurts the most is that the whole family was planning a cook-out upon his arrival back home, seeing as many of us hadn't seen him since he left. It really hurts now knowing that I will never see him again. I know he is in a better place and is watching over all his loved ones, including me. Miss and love you always, D.J."
Kerri LaCourse of West Springfield, Massachusetts
