    To Kaila and the girls, Justin's loving mom and Travis: You have my deepest sympathy for this unspeakable loss. He was and is one of the most incredible students I have had in my classes at East High School in Cheyenne over 18 years. Justin had a bright shining light that radiated from his smile and eyes of brilliance, creativity and joy of living. Seeing him with his wife and little girl (the last time I saw him) made me so happy to see his love for his family, life and his work. I am sad, and sorry for your loss.
