Being Jonathan’s teacher for the past 7 years has been on the greatest blessings in my life. The first day I met you, I knew you had a piece of my heart. I watched you have some really good days, and not so good days when you didn’t feel good. The times when you would smile and laugh would Always bring a smile to our face and laughter to our voice. I loved you as my “own”. I will miss you!! Suzie, I know there is nothing I can say that can take away your pain, but thank you for being such a great parent to Jonathan and for always being so easy to talk to when I had to call you on an occasion to communicate when Jonathan wasn’t feeling well or others matters in the classroom. I am so very sorry for your pain. Jonathan will be forever loved and missed!!
