JONATHAN

When I met Jonathan he was so small, then over the years he grew so tall;
But at the core he was still the same
Soft spoken and kind always wearing a smile, caring and respectful to others;
Though my dream of him was much longer in view
memories in this case would have to do,
There were so many, some very funny yet this precious one of him remains;
The day Jonathan came calling, on a
Saturday morning "pommceythere for sale"; Hoping to make friends with the neighbourhood children along the way;
His actions of course, bore fruit in due course and forged a friendship with our families until today...

May we remember Jonathan as a special blessing from the Lord who impacted our lives in one way or the other. Rest in peace Jonathan!

Jonathan was an insightful, caring, humorous, inquisitive, and motivated young man. I worked with him for just over a year and although that may seem like a short time, he impacted me deeply. I will miss many things about him and our time together. One thing Jonathan and I bonded over was our love for astronomy. I remember he'd tell me he would look up to the sky or stars and remind himself how vast this life is. So may we all look up time to time and take comfort in knowing there is one more angel above us... Jonathan, may you be at peace. We miss you.

To Jonathan's family & friends, please accept my sincerest & heartfelt condolences for your immense loss. I am praying for your healing.

Sending prayers and peace,
-S.R.

It's hard to think of the perfect memory I shared with Jon. Considering the fact that we did most things together; there is just way too many to choose from. There was the time our parents made us take etiquette classes every Saturday morning (though I secretly enjoyed them). There is also the numerous sleepovers. I used to pray to God that Jon wouldn't fart or at least that He would give me the strength to return one that was equally as stink! But I can't forget the time we tried to raise a chick named Carl Stifler in Venezuela. I don't know many guys who would choose to spend time in their vacation taking care of a chick, but that was just who Jon was, truly a gentle giant and it's how I'm going to remember him. Rest in peace Jon, my brother, my friend.

Jonathan was my neighbour and brother's friend. However, like most close friends of a sibling, Jonathan was like having another little brother. There were the times we went to Tobago, the time we went zip lining and other cool things we did, but I remember the simpler things the most. The time uncle Stanley brought home giant bags of oranges and Jonathan, Shaquille, and I spent the weekend juicing them. Or when Jonathan would let me play with his hair and comb it as best as I could... which wasn't always that great. Or when the three of us (and the younger ones back then) would spend hours outside talking in between the fence. Most of our time together was simple, in the way hanging with family is simple. Jonathan was my neighbour and my brother. I miss you Jonathan, I can't believe we'll never see each other again. I take comfort in that you're in a better place. Love you always.
