I was so sorry to read about the loss of your son and I wanted to give my warmest condolences to the family. To lose your child can cause such overwhelming sadness but the God of all comfort tells us at 2 Kings 20:5 He feels our pain, even sees our tears. This is the time where God’s Word can help us find peace in the darkest of moments. At we can read in the Bible John 5:28,29 that not only does God care but He also gives the assurance that you will have Jonathon in your life once again. May all the memories of your well loved son give you calm until God’s promises come true. Again so very sorry for your heartache. 💐

Jonathan had a unique smile, now a cherished memory. His kindness was evident when he took the time to play checkers with his youngest cousin (Mariah) at family events. God Bless his memory! To Susan, Tim, Megan, Tanner, Sam, Abby, Luke - we wish you great comfort in the days ahead...grief is indeed a personal journey.
