    To the family. I am so sorry for your loss. PJ was such a kind person, and he always had a smile on his face whenever I seen him. I can still remember all the times he took me to school when I was young. He loved his family, and was a true man of God. I can't believe that he is gone, but I know that he is in a better place. I love you guys so much, and I will continue to keep you all in my prayers. This message is also from Kennard Bennett and family.
