It is with a heavy heart and broken soul that i tell you that my nephew, JayB - Justin Barbier - passed away this morning. Many of you here walked with him through his journey through two bone marrow transplants and the resulting complications.

This morning at 1:30 AM, complications from Pneumonia were just too much for him. Please, keep his mom, my sister, Julie in your prayers along with the rest of our family.

Please, PLEASE consider becoming a marrow donor in his honor:

A braver soul i've yet to encounter. A greater man i'll never meet.

I am deeply saddened by this news. Justin was a wonderful young man with an incredibly positive attitude. I have deep admiration for you and Justin's entire family for your undying love and support. His mother is an angel on earth.

Please extend my deepest condolences to your entire family. And yes, Justin will be remembered! You words ring true about Justin!

With deepest regrets,

Don't think......shave.

Thank you, Joel.

I, too, am shocked and deeply saddened.

Justin has been on my mind, lately, and I have been thinking that I need to check in on him. I'm really grieved to get this news.

I have always really liked Justin and thought very highly of him. I will keep him and his family in my prayers.

Joel, I offer you and the rest of Justin's family my most heartfelt condolences.

Oh, Joel, I'm so sorry to hear that. Please accept my condolences and prayers.

Justin and I corresponded a bit while he was here in Minnesota, and I was struck by his can-do attitude and positive spirit. I wish I had had the chance to meet him personally. I'm guessing he was even more inspiring in person.

If I may ... Geaux Justin!!

Sorry to hear this - an untimely death is infinitely harder to bear than one at the end of a long life. Thoughts and prayers for your family.
