Something I heard before that I really liked & just looked it up
William Shakespeare, Romeo & Juliet

"Give me my Romeo, and When He Shall Die, Take Him and Cut Him Out in Little Stars, and He Will Make the Face of Heaven so Fine That All the World Will Be in Love with Night, and Pay No Worship to the Garish Sun"

I think I will come here from time to time & post things that I remember. Things just keep popping into my head - memories or things he said.

One of my favorite stories is when they just bought the black Saturn car & I didn't know their car, and I was on my way to Springfield, and Justin was coming from Peoria, and he recognized my car so he started messing with me by tailgating me no matter how fast

Although I don't remember exactly how I met Justin, it was from inquiring about someone to help move aquariums. May have been the folks from the former Aquariums Unlimited (?) on MacArthur. After helping move the aquariums, I was stricken at how genuine of a person Justin was and asked him if he would be interested in cleaning them regularly.

Dear Sue,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. What a great young man Justin had become. Reading all of these memories has been great. I do remember when he was born and what a beauitful baby he was and how proud you were of both of your children. You have truly been on my heart and in my prayers and all of your family.

Love & Prayers,

It has been so long since I have seen you or talked with you. It seems everyone goes their seperate ways. You and your family have been on my mind so much. I can't even imagine losing a son. I have been thinking and praying for you and Justin's family. I remember the day he was born. I have a son and the pain of losing him would be something that only God can handle. I know that each day

Justin will be missed
the cries of the hearts

Dear Anastasia,

Someday I hope you can read this and understand. You are so special to me and I love you more than words can express. You are an amazing little girl. The best parts of this earth are found within you. I vow to help you know and remember your Dad; even though I think you knew him better than I did. Maybe we can help each other. I'm so glad he knew you and loved you more than life

To Justin's Family and Close Friends ... the world has lost a special young man. Today's ceremony was very helpful for me. I was able to learn more about Justin that enables me to now understand how he coped with all his health issues. A wonderful outlook on life! I was inspired by the preacher's words and stories of Justin, the letter Justin wrote, and the memories shared by Valerie and Justin's sister. I'll pray that each day gets a
