Justin’s Story

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!!!

Life Is Too Busy

Good Morning Buddy, 

I have some news for you, Uncle Bob left us last Sunday and was on his way there.  He stuck around long enough for Christine, Chris and Liam to make it in from Pennsylvania and Amanda and Tom to get married in his room. After we all said our good byes, he checked out.  Have you seen him yet?  If there are any golf courses on the way, he may be a little late showing up.  He’ll probably golf all the way up there.  Hey, when uncle Bob shows up, have him teach you how to play golf. He’s pretty good … I wouldn’t let him keep score or you’ll never beat him (LOL).  I don’t know about cousin Lynn, but cousin Rodney likes to play. If you can’t talk Lynn into playing and you need a fourth, ask around for Steve Fultin. He was a good friend of mine that Bob should remember, he likes to play.

I don’t know if you have been keeping up, but since the middle of September we have been pretty busy. The Firepokers weekend, St Jude walk… followed by uncle Bob, then GoAH  NOAH .  Next weekend is Boo-Fest up at Addison Oaks.It will be our second camp outing within a month and the last one for the year.Bill is borrowing his dads RV and will be camping with us. We should have about 8 campers this year and a lot more kids. It is always nice to see and camp with the Biebuycks too!!  Life seems to be sucking up all our spare time. I would like to think things slow down after you’re dead…I mean you have eternity to get everything done, right?

Here it is October and two of our friends our celebrating births in their families. First,  Ryan and Kellie had a baby girl the last Saturday in September. From the pictures on f/b, Kara, already has Ryan wrapped around her finger. Dennis and Kris became great grandparents when their granddaughter delivered a set of twins the first Saturday in October. Hey buddy… watch over this one, due to complications the twins were born about 8 weeks early. 

When we go back to St Jude for Remembrance Day in November, we are planning to spend an extra night in Memphis.  You know the pyramid shaped building we could see from our room?  Bass Pro Shop finally put in a store and a hotel.  The hotel theme is the great outdoors so the décor should be pretty cool.  I’ll see if mom and Jackie want to go over to the Peabody for a drink and hot chocolate. The whole trip will be very emotional with a lot of mixed feelings…Damn, I miss you!!!

Well it’s time for me to sign off. We all love and miss you very much!!! Watch over all of our family and friends as we all work to get where you’re at.  Don’t forget to stop by andlet us know you’re still looking out for us.

Again, Love you!!!

Mom, Dad and Jackie

I'm sorry to hear about Uncle Bob....my prayers go out to your family. How special that the wedding could take place in his room and for so many to be able to see him and say goodbye. I've had some family that passed quickly and unexpectedly - so many things I wish I could say (but then I also think of my grandpa and how much he struggled that I wish he could have had the quick and peaceful passing and not known all that he went through). Praying for you all to have peace and comfort. I'm sure Justin welcomed him with open arms or maybe a trick or two? :)

Things have been busy....I keep thinking "once I get through xyz" it will get better, but then more stuff comes up. Sometimes I feel I need a vacation just to get my life in order! The more I talk to people, the more I realize it isn't just me...everyone is feeling that way! I hope life slows down a bit so you can enjoy some of the fun things you have coming up!

Love hearing about the new additions to your friends families! I hope the twins do well, gain weight and are strong enough to go home soon. What sweet blessings all those babies are!

I am sure your trip back to Memphis will be emotional...but with everything St Jude does, I'm sure it will be incredibly special and hopefully brings comfort as you revisit those memories.

I hope your family has a wonderful week ahead, and that Justin gives you some signs that are undeniably him!!
