There are also written messages that say, “Christopher ‘Drew’ Andrew Leinonen you are very hard to say goodbye to. We are the same in our passions. You are a psychologist and idealist, and I am a therapist. I was also a GSA in high school. You were a gift to this world and your murder will not be in vain. Wishing your family comfort, enjoy heaven w/ Juan.” Another message says, “Darryl Roman Burt II: We never met, but I worked for 2 1/2 yrs down the street from you, @ Nova SE University in Jax. I was an enrollment coordinator then, you were in financial aid @ Keiser U. My heart hurts for your family, friends, colleagues, mentees (w/ Jaycees), and especially all the veterans you helped. You will not be forgotten. Congrats on earning your Masters degree in Human Resource Mgmt. You make your family and community proud.”
