I have known Dibble since he was about 14 or 15.? We always used to hang out at church with other friends.? I knew he kind of smoked pot, but that's all he did.? After he stopped going to church completely, we lost touch for a while.? I was pretty close to his best friend, Garrett.? About a month before Dibble passed, I saw Garrett and asked how Dibble was doing.? He said not so well and that he started doing meth often.? That scared me.? But I didn't even think to ask for his number or a way I could contact him.? It had been about 6 months since we had talked before he died.? What hurt that most is that I was looking through the newspaper one day for an article for a class, which I NEVER barely even touch the newspaper, and glanced at the obituaries and saw Justin Allen Dibble.? I immediatley broke down crying.? That day I saw the article was the day after his funeral so I couldn't even say goodbye.? That really broke my heart.? I had alot of feelings of regret and guilt.? But I knew he was in a better place because one of his ambitions was to meet God and Kurt Cobain.? So I am sure he's way better off now.? But I still miss him alot and it still hurts.
