Thank you for supporting us as our 13 year old son was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma Brain Tumor! After a long and hard fought battle with cancer, my young super hero Justin passed away on August 07, 2014... He is one that will be missed by many!!!
I hope this letter finds you doing well. I really hope you’re not missing us as much as we are missing you… I don’t see how you could? You don’t spend all your time watching over us, do you? How boring would that be!! You need to get out and spread those wings a little. Get Brodie and your grandpas to take you fishing…They do have fishing up there, right? Wouldn’t be much of a heaven if they didn’t have fishing. Ask God if Noah still has his boat, maybe he will let you guys can use it (that was a joke - the ark is too big to fish off of). Anyway, I’m sure if you ask around, someone will tell you where you might be able to catch some fish.
Knowing you, I’m sure you’ve already made some new friends. Are you still playing the guitar? Has Brodie taught you how to play “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain”? I would think once the other angels heard you play and sing with a guitar, they would petition to have you play that instead of the harp (is the whole harp thing made up?).
Have you looked up Amber yet? You remember Amber, she was the girl from Michigan that was at St. Jude the same time we were. Her and her family was in the room next to us at the Ronald McDonald House. I’m sorry buddy… I don’t think we ever told you she passed away... Unfortunately, she died in February of 2014 after her long and hard fought battle. I will be honest with you, I used to hear and read about kids with cancer all the time and it never really affected me. Now I read about it and I can’t believe they haven’t found a cure. It’s heart breaking!!! I want there to be a cure for this disease so no one else has to witness their love one dying such a horrible death!!! I don’t know how much you remember, but it was brutal… “well, that’s all I got to say about that”!!!
I did finish the first Halo game. Wow, what a game!!! I can see how you and your friends spent hours playing it. A kind of a funny thing happened: I googled to see which Halo game to play next and clicked on a sight I thought would give me my answer. After I read the list and the order the games should be played, I went to the top to read who published it and it read, “ANSWER BY JUSTIN” (2 years ago). Cool…
Well, this letter will pretty much bring you up to speed on things around here. Don’t forget, if you get the chance, let us know you’re around. Oh yeah, the last thing I need to tell you is your sister has a boyfriend. Don’t worry, I gave him the Justin speech, “You be good to my sister and we won’t have any problems” (that was classic!!). I don’t know if I was as intimidating as you, but I tried.
Take care buddy and we all love and miss you very much!!!
