In Memory of Justin Paul Horvath

Family and Friends:

December 4th will be one year since Virginia, Jim, and I lost Justin. The last year has been very difficult without him. He was our son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, boyfriend, and friend. He left a lasting impression on every life he touched, whether you knew Justin his entire life or just met him on the side of the road as he stopped to help you. His impact was felt by many and still continues today.

Justin did not go to church every Sunday, but he lived his life like a true follower of God. Just before his passing he found peace at the Shrine of St Anthony on Folly Quarter road in Ellicott City, MD walking through the grounds and enjoying the beauty of nature. We would like to have a place for everyone to remember Justin and at the same time contribute something back to the shrine. This would be a place for family, friends and Emily, his girlfriend at the time of his death, to visit to remember the good times with Justin. If you would like to help us construct a fountain and bench with Justin’s name on it in his memory, please follow the link to make a contribution. Part of the contribution will also go to the Literacy Campaign and Library of Books that was established last year at Spirit of Life Church in Indianapolis, Indiana, in memory of Justin as well.

This past year has been difficult for all of us. These are two things that are near and dear to our hearts. If you would like to join in the celebration and memory of Justin’s life, these are two projects that we have chosen to have our friends and family contribute to.
