Dancing! Lots of dancing. Justin loved music and really had some moves. Well at least one move. You know the one, but he could make it work in any situation. I know we went to a lot of big shows with lots of friends, but the ones that stick in my mind now are the small ones. Dive bars and Wing offs. Dancing with his mom and dad when Bob Dylan came to Altoona and having just as much fun this summer with them at the Railroader's Museum. I remember seeing Wilco with Dave and April. Chuck’s Farm with Rayna, Tressa, and Justin.

I remember late nights in my parent’s basement. Talks of life, love, and god in between heated games of Madden. I remember diving through inner tubes and damned if I don’t still remember him peeing down the stairs at my Gram’s when he was a little kid. I know that if you stick an apple in your ear, you say ouch. I remember he was there for me. I appreciate the smell of roses because of him. I remember he had an infectious smile and a pure soul. I know he had his issues, but I can’t seem to remember those as well anymore.
