Jon, Wanda & Chrissy were part of my extended family.. Jon always made you feel at home and Wanda ( Momma Evans) always made sure we had food. Chrissy was my bud and always kept in touch as I moved around the country. I will miss them forever...

Jon was the best neighbor anyone could ever have. He loved our kitties, and invited them over to breakfast with him every morning. We miss Wanda so much and will miss Jon and hope they are now happy together in Heaven - Susan and Hager Harmon
