Welcome - Sunday, April 22, 2018

Sign Guest Book

We became very close to one of your organ recipients. Drina lived in Hawaii and we communicated early on by email and phone calls. We were fortunate to visit her multiple times and were welcomed into her large, loving Hawaiian family. Sadly, our beloved Drina passed away unexpectedly in her sleep on January 15, 2018. She was 50 years old. She was full of grace and gratitude; of warmth and fun. She suffered many health challenges but her faith kept her strong and always positive, “taking one day at a time”. Knowing her helped make some sense of your tragic loss. I hope somehow your spirits connect in the next phase of your journeys. You will love her as we do. Our hearts are broken again but we are grateful we got to know and love Drina. She will remain in our hearts along with you.

Love forever and always

Another Thanksgiving without you! Nevertheless there is much to be thankful for.

I am thankful for....
My mind that remembers you; my voice that still speaks of you; my spirit that still hears you; my heart that still loves you.

As a Thanksgiving tradition we each write on a paper leaf what we are thankful and share with the family during dinner time. I have saved our "leaves" over the years. I cherish the words on your paper leaf from 2003, our last Thanksgiving together: “I am thankful for being so close to my family and finding Jodi”.

Your light shines through all who knew and loved you. I miss you so very much…..

Love forever and always

Justin, your bright light still shines even for those of us who did not know you that well, but saw the sunbeams. You family remains in my best thoughts and prayers, while lessons in living continue through this memorial page. I am grateful.

Thirteen years have passed since you were taken from us. Sharing your future was snatched from us by your tragic accident. I can only imagine what wonderful things you would have accomplished and what fun we could have had. We still grieve for you but over time we have learned to live with the pain. You are always in my heart and not far from my thoughts. I am grateful for the time we had together and the memories we shared will continue to sustain me until we are together again. You are loved by so many.

Love forever and always

My friend, I remember you often, always with a smile, deeply thankful for the time we had together, the memories and community we share. You earned our respect, made us laugh and made the world a better place. Always in our hearts.

Hey Bud,

Happy belated birthday. I miss you. Things have been really hard for me lately. I just can't seem to find joy in anything, an overall lack of happiness. My heats been crushed for years now I'm a hermit, alone and afraid to open myself up to anyone anymore. I guess I'm trying to avoid being hurt again. Believe me I'm really trying to appreciate the little things. Anyway I wish you were here.

Happy Birthday Justin!
Some of my favorite memories in Jr. High school were riding the bus with you! lol such good times, always a smile on your face, laughter to be had, and great conversation. Something recently had made me think about these days not too long ago. Then a saw Nate's posting about your birthday and took part of the day yesterday to read past messages from your family and friends on this guest book. I read one I think from Jodi about your love for riding the bus and I laughed out loud, smiled, and got a bit ready. So perfect that these bus memories were dancing in my head then around your birthday. You are missed and remembered! So much love sent to your family and friend family. Xo Anna

Happy Birthday Justin! Recently the wife and I moved to a little place in fernbridge. This property is filled with beautiful birds, big and small. Once a while ago, Joel C told me that he felt your energy coming from certain birds he saw flying. Since that moment I have felt a similar connection, and I must say it is so nice when you visit us. You are an amazing inspiration and help in more ways than will be known. Love to you and your family Keele. Amazing Human!

Happy birthday, buddy! I'm bummed that I don't get to make fun of you in person for being old. Also bummed that you aren't around to teach my son Harrison to be awesome. I think you would have liked him.

I think about you and tell my wife Erin stories pretty often. I am definitely a better person for having known you.

Happy Birthday Justin
You would have been 38 years old today! As I am writing this, I look fondly at a photo of you, dad and me at your UCSC graduation. What a day of celebration that was! I am thankful for all of your accomplishments, adventures and fun we shared as a family and am so proud of the wonderful, kind person you were. I live with the love and memories you left behind but nothing can bring back how I once was before losing you. Until we meet again……

Love forever and always
