🎖️ I just found out about Justin. We worked together at Electro-Spec in Lexington for a short time but being a vet myself and suffering from ptsd we had a conection from day one. I am so sorry to hear of his passing and wish we would have stayed in touch after he left. Ive often thought of Justin and wondered how he was doing but not having a working number for him I never tried to find him. Now I will be forever regretful that I did not. We spoke alot about life and he loved to talk about his son. My prayers are with his family. I know that we will see him again when that day comes.
