My deepest condolences. I had Jon-Michael in class at UTC. He was also a teaching assistant for me for a course in the Bahamas. He was so sweet, kind, and always smiling. He played cards with my young sons while at the field station which was very kind. I am at a loss for words for him to be gone so soon.

My condolences to your family and friends and saddened at your passing. I remember the vacation with you and your family in Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. Gail and I had so much fun watching you and Eric on the gaming machines. We were so impressed with your effervescent personality, focus and intelligence. We had the best of times. Everyone had high hopes for your success and long life but we cannot predict the future for better or worse. May you rest in peace. How sweet it was.

I am heartbroken at the news of Jon-Michael’s passing. I have fond memories of him as my student. He seemed to always be smiling and full of life in band. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and know I am praying for all his family and friends.

Dear Kathy, I'm writing for three reasons. Gail was one of my dearest friends who has become one of my Dearly Departed. She was an intelligent and loving soul. She showed me her wonderful San Francisco and I became her downstairs neighbor on Lake Street. She shared herself freely and she is missed. My younger brother, Terry, has also become one of my Dearly Departed. He was a free spirit, kind and generous. He passed at 31 years. He is missed. I'm now a mom and grandmother. At this moment I share your pain at the loss of your handsome son and I cry for you. But please know that Jon-Michael is with you today and will be with you always at your side. Love, Kathy.
