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.

Missing today, Mother's Day although there is not a day that goes by that you are not on my mind and in my heart. I will always be your mom and am so grateful for all the love, joy and memories you gave me.

Love forever and always

Just dropping by after we (at SCR9-1-1) were just talking about Justin and the annual Justin Keele Scholarship our employee association gives out. Our association has new blood driving it so after a few years of not giving this scholarship, we are increasing the amount this year to $4,000. This is available for any student who is related to any public safety official in Santa Cruz County.
Just letting you know Justin's memory is still with us at Santa Cruz Regional 9-1-1.

I was going through some drawers today and came across some old photos of a summer vacation in Tahoe (~1996). Your friend John was with us. You looked so happy; your future was so bright and promising. It breaks my heart that you are not here with us and you were unable to live your dreams. I miss you so very much. The pain of your loss is always with me.

Love forever and always
