In Memorandum: Justin Cope

Most people do not know just how much they can affect a person's life. It may take no more than a smile to completely turn someone's life around, but with someone like Justin, that was all it took.

I never really knew Justin that well honestly. We were in New Vision and Concert Choir together at CSU, but that was about it. We didn't hang-out, we didn't play basketball together (that's the one where they throw it, right?), and we weren't really that close. Even still, being around him made you feel like you were one of his best friends. He just had this glow about him, and anyone who knew him could tell you the same. His smile and laugh were enough to clear any clouds raining on someone's day.

Justin Cope was a very special person to many people, and I know he will be missed greatly.

We will never forget . . .
