"In my religion there would be no exclusive doctrine;

All would be love, poetry and doubt."

- Cyril Connolly

Justin's sister Ann found this in Justin's backpack. It was ripped out from a newspaper.


Justin's family would love to hear about your memories and the adventures you shared with him.






"We will always remember him as he was, all the goodness and kindness...

a young prince, a truly beautiful young man in body and mind."

- Uncle Gordon
