    My child attended CFMS with TJ. He was truely a special child with an amazing sense of humor. His family did a great job in raising this young man. In losing TJ, the entire community has lost a valuable treasure. My family has been praying, and will continue to remember TJ's family, friends, and the children of our community that undoubtedly will feel the loss deeply. To TJ's family...May God hold you close to Him for strength and comfort. God bless each of you.
