So many wonderful memories of our time with Justin. Here's just a few...
Riding on the old fire engine for his birthday.
Performing the Passover story in our basement.
Evenings on Bote Court after camp days at Breezemont.
Playing on the beach on Fire Island.
And the forever classic - sitting in the rear of the Volvo outside the Greenwich Diner.

I worked very closely with Justin at Vanda Pharmaceuticals, and came to know him as a sweet and good friend. He and I spoke at length about my own son's death just last year. When my own heart was broken, Justin was a kind support. I am absolutely stunned, as we all are to lose such a young, vibrant wonderful man. I would love to speak with his family about what he meant to all of us, if ever such an opportunity arises. He was a good person, with a kind heart. He will be missed, he is already missed terribly.
