JayB's Uncle Joel: Checking in

Post by gooup » Mon Nov 07, 2011 7:06 am

Hi Guys,

JayB's Uncle Joel here. i went watch the LSU/Bama game with my sister Julie (JayB's mom). We had a great time watching the Tigers win, and it was great to see my sister celebrating Justin's life. I felt truly blessed seeing my sister really HAPPY that night.

After the game, she brought me into his bathroom and showed me the stack of soaps, razors and brushes that he accumulated over the years (many, i'm sure, by way of your generosity). She told me to take them, as she had no use for them.

I have to tell you how very touched i was that she wanted me to have those special items. I have them here now, and i feel so blessed to have such a special bond with my boy.

Anyway, i wanted to share this with you and i hope to be checking in and sharing about which soaps/creams i particularly like.

Kindest regards,

So sorry to hear about Justin. I was away from the internet when it happened so I missed it. Oddly I was thinking about him today - no idea why. A brave and nice-natured fellow. My condolences.

I know Justin would be very pleased that these items are now in your possession. I hope you enjoy your magical shaves!

It must have been very tough for your sister to get rid of those treasures.
I'm sure you will cherish them very much Joel.

I'm glad to hear you got Justin's shaving tools and supplies, Joel. It seems only fitting.

Thanks for joining us once again.
