    Since Oct. 16, 2006 and beyond, Green and I go way back. DJ was and always is going to be like “cuzzo”to me. From our moments on the deck plates and to the porch, you are not going to find a more sincere person than him. Bro, will be miss. Mrs. Green my condolence, to you and yours.

    DJ was so much a part of Paul’s and my life for so many years, it is hard to imagine him not being here. A very good man indeed. A very good friend as well. He will certainly be missed. Trice I am here if you need anything, anything at all. I will be thinking of you.
    Rest in Peace my friend.

    As I am truly broken hearted and on the other side of the world, I turned to the Bible’s unparalleled Truth and Wisdom. Proverbs 18:24 KJV says:

    “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord”

    … The good book ain’t lie, Dj found you, Trice (a good thing) and Dj did obtain that favor too.

    That boundless favor was shown to him over the years in many ways such as how he was embraced by his whole new HUGE family, Mr. Walt/Mrs. Pam, and at the time Grandma Alice, all the sisters, brothers, cousins, aunts, uncles, a profitable career at the shipyard w/ his wife, gaining new friends and neighbors, establishing legacy by building a home w/ his wife, honorable mention is Dj’s New England Patriots winning almost every Super Bowl, plenty of time spent fishing or celebrating life by hosting block parties/cookouts, but most of all God’s favor to Dj is displayed through his beautiful children.

    By way of God’s favor to Dj, like many, I gained a brother. The aforementioned Proverbs 18: also states in the 24th verse

    …”A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: And there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”

    That part. The ..”there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” God’s word is Truth and Wisdom. By way of Dj marrying my elementary classmate, Trice, the best thing that’s ever happened to him as he has told me many times over the years, I gained a brother and I will forever miss my brother. Dj was a groomsman at my wedding, a teammate, road trips to Fla., visiting my family, Dj being adopted as a son by my mother and as a brother by my brothers, Dj taught me how to play pool, took me fishing many times, we’ve ran the table playing spades, we’ve shared many deep conversations about life and God, many years watching football together, we watched the Super Bowl together at my Dad’s house when “our” Eagles beat “his” Patriots, and he was there for me when my Dad passed away, home helping me prepare my house before we left for Japan. Look, everything that you can think of in “a friend that sticketh closer than a brother” meaning, Dj was to me.

    God bless. Erika, the kids (Jaylah, Amaya, Alana, Leah) and I send our love to the whole family.

    Big Head! This hurt like hell. You were definitely the life of the party always smiling, joking and playing. You never changed from the first time we met. You were one of the first Uncles my girls had when we moved to VA -although I couldn’t understand a word you were saying lol. I always love the way you loved Trice. God bless your family. Fly high my friend.
