Dear Justin: it's taken me a few months to write this. I found your last card that you sent to EJ last night that you sent for her graduation. I took it as a sign that it was high time to say goodbye. I also took it as a sign that you are VERY much still here. I'm sorry that we found out too late of your passing, although in my heart, I know that it had to be like this. When I heard of your passing, I grieved for you harder than I ever thought I would. I had hoped that we would be able to reunite and you could see the beautiful human you made. I wanted to tell you to hang on because I did, but you did your absolute best. From the moment I learned you had passed, I promised you that I would honor you by being the best mother to E that I can be. I've done ok, Justin. You'd be proud of me. You always were. I know you can see us all from your peaceful place and I truly feel your spirit. We were just kids when we met and became a young family. I have no regrets on any part of our past, other than the life-long pain of grieving your loss for myself and for E and for not being able to say goodbye. You deserve every bit of peace that I believe you have now, old friend. I'll ALWAYS remember you as an innocent soul that meant well. You didn't fail at anything, Justin. You have a legacy and she is amazing. I don't want this condolence to be private because I want the world to know you like I did. You will NEVER be forgotten. Thank you for your time on this earth, Justin. Thank you for your best efforts at being my one-and-only husband, for a few years. It hurts my heart as I write this, not to feel your light on this earth, but instead a pulling in my heart that you are gone. I will always love you, old friend. Rest in peace, but PLEASE, PLEASE send your love and help and that good stuff to E and me. Although you aren't here, she NEEDS you and she always will. Please let send her signs. I'll see you on the other side, Justin. Goodbye. Absolute love and condolences to the Fotheringham and extended family. I truly hope my words are received with the intent of love and best wishes. Peace be with you all.
