Alix: We have been out of town, but our Fran called to tell us about Jon. We wanted you to know how very sorry we are. I didn't know Jon well, but always enjoyed talking to him when he was waiting for you after Ascension choir practice. We pray for God's solace for you and your family. Sherry & Kim Fent

Alix, David, Fran and family,
I was shocked to read about Jon. I don't have to tell you how much his friendship meant to us (especially to Dad). I know their friendship continues now in Heaven. Jon was an example of a lawyer with integrity and a good Christian person in general. I am praying for you all in the days to come that Jesus will hold you close.
