In Memoriam

Justin Whitaker 9/7/89-4/7/08

The world lost a great kid this week. One I have always been happy to know. a happy kid. a kid who loved baseball. a kid who would say your name in the kind of voice that made you think he was thrilled to see you. even if you were just the mom of one of his teammates. such a strong spirit. the kind of person you hope you would be if you were struck with cancer in high school. the kind of inspiration you would be happy to call your own son. the kind of superhero that could bring a community together in ways I have never seen. this is Justin. the best kind of kid. the kind God wanted to spend more time with. the kind we are so sorry to see go. the kind of kid who will never be forgotten. We'll see you on the other side and I can't wait to hear you say "Mrs. Adams!" like you are thrilled to see me again.
