    BJ, I met you while cooking at Village Cafe. Working with you was the best. You could always put a smile on my face. You were taken from us too soon. I'm sorry you and Rob never got together to make music, it would have been wonderful. He did take a few of your songs and remix them, I'll find them and post them soon. We will miss you! Liz & Rob

    A beautiful soul has gone on to ride his unicorn and dance in the sky with his mother. BJ was TRULY a one of a kind guy. I will NEVER forget him, and I will keep his memory alive in my heart forever. To BJ's dad and brother: you two were BJ's hero's and his rock on this Earth, he talked about you both a lot, and he loved you so much. Mr. Godwin, you raised a wonderful son, who in the end, gave some people the chance at a new life, even as he lost his, for that you should be so proud.
