Justin was and is an inspiration to us all. Whether it was on the baseball field or off. He always had a smile on his face and lived life to the fullest. I only hope that when it is my time to leave I can be half the person Justin was. As a catcher he was the guy to come out to the mound and say something hilarious to help you to forget about the 3 balls you just threw up there. In the locker room he was the guy making you laugh so hard you forgot about all the nerves you had inside you for that first start at shortstop against the arch rival Apopka Blue Darters. He was a loyal teammate and even more loyal friend. Justin was not perfect but he was pretty darn close. He might not have been the smartest kid in the world he may not have been the most talented baseball player on the planet but if you knew him you could never tell. From talking to him to watching him play you would think he was on top of the world. He didn't have a care in the world. He has two wonderful parents and a sister to go with them. If you know nothing else about Justin know that he is truly missed here on earth for simply being himself. We should all take a step back and think about him and how he was.
