Dear Donna and Ronnie,

We were so sorry to hear just today of Jason's passing. We had so hoped he had won this battle. We know no words are adequate for a loss such as this. I personally have so many fond memories of Jason visiting our home as a teen and later as an adult after returning from war. We will forever cherish his sweetness, his tremendous sense of humor, and his deep love for and loyalty to his family and friends. We will keep him alive in our hearts with these memories and know that he lives on somewhere beyond human sight, I'm sure keeping an eye on all of us and making more than one angel laugh somewhere. If there is ever anything you need, even if you just need a shoulder, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Wishing you love and comfort,

April 27, 2014

You are our constant joy...
Mom and Dad

Donna and Ronnie - I just today heard the horrible news about Jason. I'm so very sorry for your loss, and cannot even begin to imagine the pain you are feeling. I will be praying for you in the days to come, and I ask God to give you and your daughter-in-law strength to bear this very heavy load.

Aunt Donna and Uncle Ronnie..
Even though he was (and still is) my cousin, and though I never really saw him much or was even close, it still hit me pretty hard when I found out.
It feels like I lost a big brother. When I was little and I knew he was overseas, I still remembered him in my prayers when Daddy prayed with me at night. I feel the same now just as I did when we lost Jonathan.
Dad loved him so much, just as we all did. It's really hard to believe he's gone.
I love yall soooo much!!!!
