It's been two years from this entry since Justin died. There doesn't seem to be a good word for these dates. The usual ones, like 'anniversary', just don't fit. Despite the lack of appropriate nomenclature, I feel it's important to recognize this day in some meaningful way. So, I have dedicated this page to testimonials that Justin is, in fact, fulfilling his destiny. Below are excerpts from some posts left in the guestbook. Due to space restrictions, these are just a portion of the posts and some have been edited. Thanks for visiting.
