Karl, Paula, Jarred, and extended family,
I have such a heavy heart for all of you at this tragic news. Justin was on the brink of a happy, successful life in Christ, and it's so hard to imagine the pain he was feeling that led to this. Jarred, I sense that the loss of a twin brother is magnified greatly. May God guide you gently through your overwhelming grief in coming days and comfort your heart with the knowledge that Justin is with Jesus, and may all your brothers in Christ lift you up and carry you through going forward. We will all sorely miss Justin's presence among us. My deepest, deepest sympathies and prayers go out to all your family.
