My memory of Jonathan, who was in the last class I taught at Lawrence Avenue Elementary School, before retiring, is of a first grade boy that was happy, hardworking, and confident. I was lucky enough to watch him “burst” into reading. He was so excited, and wanted to read to himself, his friends, and anyone that would listen. His family and I were so proud of him.

My heart goes out to his amazing family. I love the beautiful pictures they shared, and the way they faced the inevitable, with grace, love and understanding. I am sure they will cherish their memories of Jonathan, as do I.

The only time I ever met Jonathon was at Ian's birthday party. He was such a happy young man and kept everyone laughing. I am so very sorry for the loss of your son, brother, all his family and friends. Never have an answer of why a child has to go through so much and the parents are left without answers. He will never be gone, he will remain beside you in different forms. Look for him within your hearts and there you will find him in your love which will live forever with you.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Please wrap your arms around the family & friends as they continue the grieving process of loosing Jonathon who was such a extremely special young man. Help them heal and give them strength as they go into these next two days to say their last goodbyes! And the days ahead as they continue to grieve their loss.
I pray this in the name of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
Amen

Jonathan had been my friend for years, ever since the start. Around the time when it was revealed that he had cancer, he started wearing a hat that had the words "New York" on it. I then asked him what "New York" is backward. We both said "Kroy Wen" at the same time. Then, we assigned a personality to this "Kroy Wen" person. After that, we made his hat into a funny personality, and would always make jokes about it. Like Kroy Wen, Jonathan brought happiness to my life every day. I thank him for his kindness.

I will continue to pray for your family.
