I don’t understand how my tumblr has started to follow people that I don’t want to follow? I also don’t understand how this can happen when I’ve not used tumblr in over 2 months? The internet is lame.
pandoraslabyrinth asked: Hi I came across your blog via the Matt Skiba tag. I thought you would like to know that when they played Reading on Friday night, they dedicated a song to Justin. I am so sorry for your loss.
Oh my god, are you serious?!?! That’s unbelievable!!!
I need to find a video to show Justin’s mum, I actually cannot believe it.
Thank you so, so much for letting me know. And thank you for your kind words too xxx
Justin’s favourite band, Alkaline Trio, DECIDATED ‘Mercy Me’ to Justin last night!!
Justin’s mum sent their managers an email about Justin, about the accident, how Justin was supposed to be seeing them with her last night, how Justin had met them a few years ago at KOKO, how they were his inspiration and how he idolized them, how Justin had an Alkaline Trio tattoo that covered his whole forearm, how he had ‘Mercy Me’ played at his funeral, how had their artwork put on his coffin.
They actually did it. They dedicated the song to him. I couldn’t believe it. I still cannot believe it. Matt Skiba said his name on stage. I wish Justin could have been there to see that. Everyone around us must have thought we were crazy fans, jumping up and down, hugging and crying when they introduced ‘Mercy Me’. Not at all. It was for our son, boyfriend, our best friend, Justin Boneman xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
If ANYONE has that video, I’d be forever grateful if you could sent it/link it to me, it would honestly mean everything to us,thank you so much!
I love you Justin xxxxxxxxxxx

Memories just aren’t enough 3
1 month today since we put you to rest.
I’ve thought about you every single day for the last 76 days.
I’ll never stop thinking about you.
I’ll never stop loving you.
I’ll most definitely never, ever forget you.
These last couple of months have really opened my eyes.
This horrible experience has shown me that life is far too short, but no matter who you are, you should always pursue to do the things you love, and not to have a care in the world what other people may think.
- Although Justin’s life was taken away from him far too early, he lived such a full life in his 23 years. Diagnosed with dyslexia at a young age, it never stopped him. He was more imaginative in ways that others aren’t. He had a huge drive and passion for art and music. He taught himself to play the guitar, and wrote all of his own music, and was a hugely talented artist. Justin had a huge love for film, comics, just everything. He could tell you the plot to anything and give you so many different facts about where something was made, who was in it, what made them decide to create it, whenever I saw him he always had a new fact or story to tell, even though sometimes they got annoying, I did secretly love it.
Another thing that has really opened my eyes in the last couple of months, if friendship.
I have found who my true friends are. They’ve been there all along. If they are your friends, they will be there for you regardless, no matter what. They won’t choose their boyfriend/girlfriend over you, when they’ve only known them 2 months. They won’t continue to let you down constantly. I’ve never ran back to anybody, begging for their friendship that was once lost, and I don’t plan on doing so now because if I did, I’d be letting Justin down, and I am not prepared to do that to him.
Right now, I need to focus on 1) getting myself together slowly but surely, 2) looking for a new job, and 3) eventually moving out/moving away. Each day is just as hard as the last, but I’m going to try to live my life and carry on as Justin would. I will always carry part of Justin with me, I will make sure to never let his spirit die.
Justin Robert Bowman (Boneman), my love for you is eternal, and I love you with all of my heart.
I’ll rip her to shreds when I see her. How dare she think she can talk down to me like that, and how dare she think she can speak for my boyfriends death when she didn’t know him! Glory hunting, nasty, disrespectful rat. Perhaps if she was in my shoes, she would actually understand why I’m so livid. You’ll get yours. In time.
