All our love and sympathy to all of Jon's Family. Being Grandparents to Jon was such a sad day for us. The loss of Jon and to see the family suffer for his loss is very hard to see. I remember him when he was little and running around so excited about things and that big smile and his big hug, I will always hold that close in my heart, he is never gone for me because I won't forget.
