To honor the passing of our friend Hallie's son many bloggers have come together and agreed to either re-post this beautiful tribute to C.J., or write something of their own.  Unfortunately I never had the good fortune of know CJ personally so for the first time ever at "My Life as You Know It"  I pass it over to my guests Dayana and Kimmy:

Written in Loving Memory of
Christopher John “C.J.” Twomey

Words are at times, inadequate, and often hard to come by. This is the hardest thing we have ever had to write.
