  19. Lauri Nadler, your loving mother says:

    Dearest Justin,

    You were my first born son, and I loved you beyond words from the moment I learned of your conception. When you arrived 10 weeks premature, you became “our private miracle.” You were the perfect baby and Stan couldn’t help taking millions of pictures of you, throughout your childhood. You were always so happy and we often found you laughing, even in your sleep. As a young boy you loved Jim Carrey and could imitate him to a tee. You would always have everyone laughing themselves to tears at Randy and Dawn’s house and Randy was the biggest fan of the “Just Dude.”

    You and I had our special bond and I sang to you for the first 6 years of your life. You had fond memories of me singing and reading to you nightly and you often told me you wish we could go back to the day, when just the two of us had those special carefree times together. To me son, it always seemed like it was just yesterday.

    I was always so thankful to Stan for teaching you how to fish when you were just 3 years old. To this day you still loved fishing and it’s no wonder you received an A in your fish fillet cooking class. Stan worked hard all year long so he could take you on wonderful vacations. I’m sure Stan will treasure the memories of your trips together… white water rafting, Disney World, Jay’s place in Florida and visiting auntie Lisa and cousin Courtney in Myrtle Beach. How thoughtful of Stan to even take your brother Garry on those trips with you.

    I remember how excited you were when Garry Jr was born and how happy you were to have Timmy, Ashley and Amber as your new brothers and sisters. As young children the 4 of you were inseparable, and I remember how much you looked up to Timmy. The other day I learned that you dreamed of opening a restaurant with Amber where the 2 of you could cook together. Amber is so sad now that dream will never come true. Garry SR loved you like his own son and I am sure that the two of you are laughing your heads off in heaven right now. Your brother Garry loves you like no other, and has always said that no one could ever make him laugh as much as you do. How will triple G ever be the same without his Big Bro? Please watch over him now Justin.

    Rob, Heather, Nick, Jacob, Garry and I couldn’t wait for your weekend visits to Rockton. The twins thought you were awesome and we all enjoyed the fabulous meals you prepared for us. Like all of us, Grandma Edie, Grandpa Bob, Kim and Mike were so proud of you when you graduated from Le Cordon Bleu. You finally found your niche in life and we couldn’t wait for you to reap the benefits of your hard work. Everyone is devastated and speechless that your dream was cut so short.

    This leads me to your friends…Justin you were friends with EVERYBODY. You made everyone laugh so hard with your funny faces, perfect imitations and crazy skits. I admired you for holding on to your friendships throughout the years. The friends you made in grade school are still your friends today and they are all in shock and grieving that you are gone. You had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone and everybody loved you so much for that. I’m sure Jackie Silva, Jennet Feeney and Susan Kirby are welcoming you right now with open arms.

    Justin, as you know I loved you with all my heart, I often said you were the male version of me. How am I ever going to smile again without you? My heart is broken in a million pieces, but we all feel so blessed to have had you in our life at all. No mother should ever have to bury her child. I was supposed to be your guardian angel not the other way around. May you rest in peace now son and finally find that feeling of true happiness that you searched and longed for your whole life through.

    I will miss you everyday of my life, until we meet again!
    Love Your Mama

    • What a wonderful note to Justin!! He was showered with so much Love. I only hope your pain & sorrow will ease with time. The say time heals all wounds, but I know the loss of a child never heals…just eases up some. My deepest sympathy for you, Stan, and the whole family. God Bless You All!!! RIP Justin!! <3

    • Irene Feeney says:

      Very well said may you have some peace thru out your days.
      with my deepest sympathy Irene Feeney (Jennet Feeney’s mom)
