"Justinie will be in our hearts forever. I'm so glad that we met at Church and became friends a few years ago, she was like a younger sister to me. We both shared a passion for helping others and worked together making that happen in our community. I will take her cute laugh, her smile and her love for God and others with me. Sleep in peace, we shall meet again when God comes."

"Do Not Stand At my Grave And Weep
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I did not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand"

"My sweet Justine and I had a few short months as close friends before she was diagnosed with leukemia, but in that time we were virtually inseparable! We had fun times and had so many plans for the future! She changed my life in so many ways for the better! I don't know why we were not meant to pursue all our plans and why we had to lose you, but I am so thankful I had you in my life!"
