    Dear Justin, you will be greatly missed. I will cherish the many childhood memories we shared together in DOS Circle and Spring Hill. I will always remember our favorite song when we were little, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy!” RIP Mr. Winker

    We were not lucky enough to know Justin that well, but after only few days hanging out together (down in Florida, after Heather’s wedding) we realized what a special person he was. Alicia, Heather, and the rest of your family will be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

    I send my deepest condolences to the Winker family! Having known Justin for only 2 years was a short time but I have a lot of memories and it was a pleasure to have known him. Alicia, I am so sorry for your loss and I hope in time you can find a way to heal this wound. My heart weeps for his entire family and friends who loved him. I know the pain of losing someone this close and I can only hope you all can get through this tragedy together. Rest In Peace JD!!!

    Alicia, Linda, Steve, Heather, Rich & Mason & Toby;
    Life is so precious. We were blessed to have Justin in our lives & know he is watching down from heaven with Ryan. We have such great memories of him. We are here for you all anytime -just a phone call away. I am picking up the chippers at noon today. I know I will get you hooked on them. Hugs, love & prayers to you all. Together, we will get through this pain again.

    Love you all so much, Dan & Diane & family
