It's a random day in September, exactly three months after you would have turned 44, and nearly 19 years after you stopped being here. And yet, I feel your power as strong as ever. I have been waking up lately consumed with thoughts of you. A deep compulsion to help share the gift of your existence with more of the world. So I'm writing about you, with that goal. I hope to make you proud.

Sending love to you forever, you incredible human.

Happy Birthday, sweet boy! This would have been your 42nd. I miss you each and everyday. Although it has been 17 years since you were with us on this earthly plain, you are always with me...in my heart and in my thoughts. This last year has been difficult for our family but things are looking better. With Dad's chemotherapy and Nicole's meningitis, I am reminded again how fragile life is and how important it is to make the most of the time we have together. And of course, no regrets! My love for you fills my broken heart but the scars are healing and making me stronger.
Love forever and always

The Compassionate Friends World Wide Candle Lighting event is scheduled tonight from 7 to 8 pm in remembrance of children who have died. There will be a virtual 24 hour wave of light as it circles the globe to honor the memory of our children who have left us too soon. Our candle will be lit in your memory. May your light forever shine, Justin, not just tonight but everyday. We miss you so very much.

Love forever and always

Another year without you. It has been sixteen years since your accident. This year 2020, has been horrible on many levels. A pandemic has spread throughout our country (and world) resulting in hundreds of thousands of deaths, protesters are marching on urban streets to rally against racism and police brutality against black people and our political climate is divisive and threatening our democracy. It has also been a tough year for our family. We are isolating ourselves at home and wearing masks whenever we are in public areas to avoid contracting the covid-19 virus. Nicole was hospitalized with meningitis and on life support before the pandemic broke but has fortunately made a good recovery; dad is undergoing a tough chemotherapy regimen and our precious 12-year-old corgi was just diagnosed with cancer. No doubt your strength and positive attitude could have helped us through these challenging times. One thing I have learned from losing you is to never take anything for granted. What is going on in our lives now has amplified that lesson. Life is short and fragile. I remind myself to cherish each day I have with those I love and am forever grateful for the time we had with you. But your absence is always with me. Missing you each and every day!
Love forever and always

Happy Birthday my sweet boy! Thanks to your good buddy Justin O, your website is back up and running. We have been struggling with some family health challenges since the beginning of 2020 (unrelated to covid-19 pandemic). First Nicole and now with your dad. Nicole fortunately has made a full recovery but while she was in the intensive care recovering from meningitis, we felt we were re-living your last days in the hospital in Santa Cruz. We were so frightened of losing her too. Now your dad is facing his own battle and will be starting chemotherapy next week. We all could sure use your positive attitude and strength now. Losing you has taught me how precious life is and how rapidly things can change. We continue to face family resets with hope that our strength and love and medical advancements will get us through this challenging time. I miss you every single day!

Love forever and always

...had to fix your web site (again), let's try this one more time:

Happy birthday, buddy! It's been an interesting year to say the least. I think you would have dealt better with the coronavirus confinement than anyone, it is a shame that you aren't around to provide inspiration. I also think you would have appreciated Julian's colorings.

All of our friends have kids now and it is fun to see the moms and dads blossom into their own. I am a little sad to not have seen more as of late, however it seems like I will be back home sooner rather than later. France has been fun, but the time is coming to get a real job again.

I think of you often and tell stories about you to my new friends out here. They are always met with laughter. As I get older and new memories replace old ones, I am glad to have so many of you still present.

Anyway, happy 41st my friend.

It has been 15 years since your tragic accident.Your constant absence is always with me. I miss your beautiful smile and sparkling blue eyes; your loving nature shown by your kindness and compassion. I miss your adventurous and fun-loving spirit; your confidence and your love of family. I miss hearing you say "I love you, mom". I miss you each and every day.
Love forever and always

Happy Birthday, my sweet Justin. You would have turned 40 years old on June 12th. I can only imagine what wonderful and meaningful experiences you would have filled your life with over the last 15 years. Our lives have been diminished by not being able to share more of your life’s journey as our son and a brother to Nicole. You always made us proud…your kindness and thoughtfulness, your accomplishments and your fun loving nature. You are missed every single day and we continue to share memories of all the fun we had together. Until we are together again, your loving mom.

Hey hey Keelo. Today you would have joined me in the big 4-0 club. I still think about you so often and always give thought to what my and many other's lives would be like if you were still here in the flesh.
I've been binge watching over and over a show called Cobra Kai (late sequel to karate kid which I'm sure you'd love) and it made me realize something. Despite the fact we are pretty much the same age, you were like my personal Mr. Miyagi, as in you always had the answer. Your positive outlook was constantly radiating, and there have been so many times I could use your insight. But at the end of the day, I think you would be proud of me for the many obstacles and turning points I've overcome or adapted to, but what I wouldn't give to have your encouraging words and validation that you were known for.
I love you homie. And with that, the biggest happy birthday to you! I'm sure the heavens have been shaking as of late, and maybe that's where the recent heat wave came from ;)
You are always in my heart. xoxo and happy big 4 f'n 0 again!

Happy Birthday, buddy. I think this would be your 40th, which is kind of weird to think about. I moved to France a few months ago, trying to life the life i have as fully as i can. My son is picking up the language like a champ and starting to come out of his shell. Wish you were here to see it. Miss you, mang.
