Justin noted that he and another close friend were often Cory’s plus two to events, which allowed them to form a bond not only with Lea, but also with her parents, Edith and Marc Sarfati.
“It would be us and Lea’s parents hanging out all the time,” Justin recalled. “And I loved her dad. He was such a funny guy.”
