    My step-son died about 7 years ago in a motorcycle accident at 26 years old.

    Today we gave away our 7th Scholarship to a graduating high-school senior at our local high school.  The requirements are to be a C student that works really hard for that C and loves technology - this years recipient fit that very nicely.

    A bitter-sweet day but it really is great to do something special in Justin's memory.

    Just needed to share.

      west40, sorry to hear about such a loss.  My friend lost her son when he had a motorcycle accident.  I think the scholarship is one of the nicest ways you could honor your step-son's memory.  Someone else's son will get that much more help getting his training/education.  It's a nice gift.
