Like Father Like Son

Justin eating his first birthday cake

Logan eating cake in China

Justin  blast from the past for Halloween
Justin has always loved the beauty of the seasons
here as a small boy enjoying all our leaves
from Arlington Blvd

Justin you had the most awesome toys 
it's too bad we could not have kept them all for Logan

Every day is a day for celebration
and having your cake and eating it too

Good Morning...

Make yourself a blessing to someone. 
Your kind smile or pat on the back 
just might pull someone back from the edge."
