|Let the memory of Jonathan be with us forever|
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY JON! Miss you still, and always will, but know that you are in a far better place than here on this mixed up earth. Think our plans are to go out to supper to celebrate your birthday. We will think of you with every bite we take and know that we must CLEAN our plates as there are starving kids in Ethiopia (you always said so). Love you bunches and until we meet again know that to be a fact!!! Mom"
"Jon you and I were such good friend's as kids growing up. We always spent time together at your grandparents house, "Causing a muck they would say". I can see your face every time I think about you and how kind and gentle, loving and caring of a person you were. We were always laughing and giggling. I loved you then and still do to this day.
You are missed so much by your family, I went to the house and visited with your mom and sister, Which we are still friends today you can be happy about that. The visit was a great your mom and I looked at photos she has and reminisced just as if we hadn't skipped a beat thru all the years.
I believe that the stars in the sky are openings from heaven where you are looking down upon all of us and shining down to let us know that you are happy in Heaven with God..... Thinking of you always"
"Not a day goes by when I don't think of you and smile about something you said or did in life...you gave us all so many reasons to smile and laugh!
I love you and miss you! Ride On Jon!"
"Six years since you left us to go live with our God and Jesus in Heaven. Sometimes it seems so long ago and sometimes just yesterday since we chatted on the telephone. You are still missed every single day but I know how unhappy you were here on earth and I know that you are ever so happy now in Heaven. Love you now and always. Ride On my Jon."
"Happy Birthday! you were always my favorite Cousin. We used to have so much fun when you used to come to Fort Morgan. Especially with our RABBITS. love and miss you."
"Happy 52nd birthday my son. We have balloons (Tangelo and Emerald) to set off when some of your friends and family get here to have birthday cake in your honor. We miss you so very much but know that you are so very happy living with your God and Jesus. I do take comfort in that fact and know that you are now happy. Love you bunches and Ride On and RIP!!"
"I know just how much your Mother, Sister and Brother miss you on earth. I will always remember you as a baby. We did not get to see you very much as my Spouse was in the Air Force and stationed so far away. Jon the memory of you will always be with me until we met again in God's home."
"It has been five years since your left us here on earth to go to your Heavenly home in Heaven with your God. I know that you are happy but we still miss you so much here. Your friends and families will be coming here today to visit, eat and share memories. Look down and be with us as I know your presence will be felt by all of us. Love you so much, my son, and until we meet again know that I carry you in my heart always."
"HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY JON!! 51 years ago today you came into our lives and brought us so much happiness!! Your time on earth was short but I know that you were ready to leave us and go to your eternal home with your God. This weekend is also special as it has so much meaning about Jesus and his short time on earth.. Enjoy your birthday with him but know that we truly, now and forever, miss you being with us. Love you always. Ride on my Jon!!"
"Four years since you left us. Sometimes it seems so far away and sometimes it seems like yesterday. One good thing I know for certain is that you have never been forgotten - you are mentioned nearly every day and creep into our conversations all the time. You left us with so many good memories. Loved you then and love you still. I know that you will be with us on the 6th when we have your BBQ and all your family and friends will gather to remember you!!! Ride On my Jon!!!"
"I am glad I got a chance to know and hang out with Jon..he touched a lot of lives. My whole heart is shaking hands with your friends and family Jon, whose lives were all just a little better because of you young son.
Thank you Wally Byers - Your comments mean a lot to me (Jon's Mother) and Jon's family. Jon had so many wonderful friends!!!"
"Hey big brother-happy birthday to you! I'm missing you so much today but I know you are still around looking out for us and that gives
me peace. I love you! Ride On! ♥"
"Happy 50th birthday my Jon. I know that you are happy there in Heaven but we certainly do miss you here on Earth. Have a great day riding your perfect Harley - on perfect roads and in perfect weather. Love you bunches,
"I will always remember you as a little Baby. My husband was in the Air Force with many miles from you Family and did not get to see each other often. Today, I grieve with the miss of you by your Mother and Family. I love them so and consider your Mom my "Sister." We miss you much, but someday God willing we will be all together in your place, a much better place then here on earth."
"I Only Knew Him For A Short Time, But He Left A Great Impression on Me, Of A Really Strong, But Gentle Man!!!!!!!! I Will Never Forget Him!!!!, And He Was The Kind Of Man That Needed A Song Written About Him, So I Wrote One ,And Sang It., And Sent It To His Mom. It Was One Of The Saddest Songs I Ever Wrote!!!!Ride On Jon!!!!!!!!"
"Today it will be 3 years since you left us and every day you are still with us in spirit. Not a day goes by without some memory of you popping up. Sometimes those memories bring tears and sometimes they bring laughter. No matter what - they bring lots of love that still goes out to you. Until we meet again - Ride On my Jon!!!"
"Happy Birthday Big Brother!! Oh, how I wish I could pick up the phone to tell you Happy Birthday and I love you...instead I will shout it to the heavens!! I miss you every single day but today I feel your absense so much more!! Ride On Jon...until we meet again...I love you!!!"
"Happy 49th earth birthdays and 2 1/2 Heaven birthdays. What a wonderful day it was when you entered this earth as you had been eagerly awaited by myself, your father, your brother, your sister and all the rest of your family. We had 46 years with you here on earth and now will have to wait until it is our time to be with you again in Heaven. Love you still. Ride On my son."
"Still miss you so very much my son. Love you bunches!! Your daughters are growing into wonderful beautiful young ladies. You would be -- and I know you are as you watch from Heaven - so proud of them. They talk of you often and have such wonderful memories of you and also love you still. Ride On my Jon!!!"
"Now to your other daughter. This evening Kaitly was letting a friend drive her car and the friend lost control going around a curve at Seeleys Lake. The first curve going South from 392. They hit a pickup and totaled Kaitly's car. The good Lord was riding with them as neither girls was injured - just shook up. Perhaps you were riding with them also as Bri says you always ride with her"
"My Jon - your daughters are keeping us busy. Brianna traded the Mustang for a Dodge front wheel drive car and I know that you would approve of that trade. She did all the paperwork herself and will make the payments herself. So proud of her. And you know that Max is now with her and her finance, Landon living in Fort Collins. She is working full time at Cost Cutters. Love her bunches!"
"Did not get to see Kaitlyn this weekend but she always sends her love to you in all her FB postings. Here it is 2 1/2 years without you and it is still hard to realize that you are not here with us. I know that you are riding on golden streets and I know your HD is now golden also so Ride On my son and let the wind blow through your hair and know that all of us still love and miss you."
"Another Christmas without you my son. Tom could not make it home and you were with Jesus so it was just Shelley and I. Your Brianna has taken possession of Max, which I know you will be so happy about, and she is spoiling him something fierce. She and Landon moved into their own place in Fort Collins this weekend. You would like Landon. As usual have to go to another post."
"Guess what? I actually made ''real'' whipped cream for Shelley. She always said I only made it for you - so today I made it for her. But who ever heard of putting whipped cream on strawberry/rhubarb pie??? Only goes on pumpkin - right? Until we meat again - I love you my son!! Ride On!!!"
"Another holiday without your presence. We missed you and Shelley woke up singing Turkey Lurkey. Had a great Thanksgiving with our traditional goose and duck and all the trimmings. I had one piece of pumpkin pie but will have another one just for you. Nobody ate the necks so took most of the meat off and the bones went in the trash. I love you, my son and miss you every day!!! Ride On!"
"Hey my son - missed you Saturday - even though I know you were here in spirit and enjoying the BarBQue that we had in your memory. Your daughters (they still love you so much) and your choice friends and families were here to remember and share memories of you with each other. Aren't you glad that you are a reason for all of us to get together and enjoy good food and good memories???"
"Two years ago about this time I was chatting with you on the phone & you were happy & headed for a fun day out with friends. Never ever thought I would get that call from Lloyd & the hours & days & months & years after that call have been bitter sweet. It was time for you to move to a better place & I know that you are again happy & God knows best but boy do I miss you. Ride On! Love you!!"
"Hey there big brother...so two years ago you were called home to be at Our Lords side and sometimes it seems as though it was just yesterday. I miss you so much and wish I could pick up the phone or just stop by cuz it's 'right on the way' to let you know how much I love you!!! Ride On Jon...Ride On!!! <3"
"You got the last laugh on your sister Shelley!! Taylor Swift won Entertainer of the Year. She even shouted up at you, "You win this time Jon". Your birthday brought lots of memories from a lot of people. You were (are) so special. Anyone that ever knew you never forgot you and all loved you for who you were. Your light was on this morning so know you came to say 'hi'. Love you."
"As usual your Mother has too much to say for one tribute so will add to the one I just left. We miss you still but find comfort that you are finally totally happy living in Heaven in God's great home where only happiness reigns. Once again - Happy Birthday my son and someday (we never know when) we will be together celebrating all our Heavenly birthdays. Love you bunches!!!"
"Happy 47th earthly birthday and 2nd Heavenly birthday. Surely do miss having that cake and ice cream to help you celebrate your birthdays but know that you are having wonderful Heavenly birthdays with all the family and friends that were waiting for you when you got there. Your brother Tom called this morning to say he also wished you a Happy Birthday."
"Jon - you have such beautiful girls!!! I know you are looking down from Heaven and puffing out your chest as you see them and watch them grow into such wonderful young ladies. Be proud of them my son as I am proud of them. Love you and Ride On!!!"
"Hey there Big Brother...I wish you were here...I miss you tons!! Merry Christmas...you are always in my heart (a heart, a heart, a heart...smack...whaaaaaaa)!! Keep an eye on Dallas for us!!! I love and miss you more every single day!! Ride On!!
Kulii said she's gonna eat your cookies!!!!"
"Another Christmas without you my son. We saved your place at the table and talked to you while eating. Prime rib was delicious and know that you would have loved it as always. Have lots and lots of oatmeal raisin cookies just for you,. People at church last night talked about you. You had lots of friends there. Enjoy your Christmas day birthday celebration with your Jesus. Love you."
"Merry Christmas Jon! I know you are surrounded by family, and I know that you are now watching over Dallas as well. Your girls are sure missing you a bunch!! It gives them some comfort to know that you and Dallas are together watching over us all. :)"
"My son I am so proud of your girls. They accomplished something in preparing Dallas for showing that I could never have done and they did a beautiful job. Brianna says she talks to you frequently and that it really helps her. Kaitlyn is being somewhat withdrawn and does not talk to many. Any chance you could get her to talk to you? We all need you to watch over us from Heaven. RideOn!"
"Jon...I cannot wrap my heart around the fact that you are gone...it's been a year and I miss you more every single day!!
I love you and miss you!! Ride On and be at peace!!"
"#2 Message - My Jon - we miss you so very much and love you still but are comforted to know that all your earthly trials and tribulations are now behind you and you are living in complete happiness in your Heavenly home. Ride On with the angels until we meet again. Love you, Mom"
"#1 Message - Tomorrow - about two hours from now -it will be a year since I lost you, my precious son, to God. I do not know why God wanted you home but I find comfort in the fact that He needed you more in His home than we did in ours."
"A year ago today I had to do the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life...I had to tell our daughters that you had died in a motorcycle accident. There has not been one day that we have not thought of you, missed you, wished you were still here. Your girls miss you!"
"I know that your first Father's Day in Heaven with our Heavenly Father must have been awesome and I will not pray you back as you are in such a wonderful place but we still miss & love you so much here on earth. Happy Father's Day my son, Jon."
"Happy Father's Day Jon! Your girls will always wish that you were still here for them to celebrate with. You will always be their dad, no matter how far away you may be, they will carry you in their hearts always!!"
"Well my son - your Kaitlyn made it through her graduation and now both your daughters are out of high school. Missed you being here but know you were looking down with a big smile on your face. I know you are so proud. Love you and miss you always"
"Hey...there are gonna be a lot of people missing you today (and everyday)...I know you are just beaming with pride to see your baby graduate!! I know you will be smiling down upon her with all the love a daddy can have!! Ride On Jon...I love you an"
"Continued more - We will miss you but know that you are looking down on all of us and are smiling. I will see to it that Kaitlyn gets your card. Love you and miss you today and always."
"Continued - I remember last year you and I had to leave church early to get to Brianna's graduation on time and this year Shelley and I will be leaving church early to get to Kaitlyn's graduation on time."
"Good morning Jon. This is an update from your Mother. Today will be a bitter sweet day - bitter because you are not here with us and sweet as the youngest of your beautiful daughters graduates from high school today."
"Well, Jon,Its That Time Of The Year Up Here In North Dakota That As You Drive Around, You See Bikes Traveling All Over THe City, And Highways, And When I see Them, I Think Of You,Knowing That You Too Are Rideing On The Heavenly Highways!!!!!Ride On"

"Happy New Year's my son. As we go into 2011 know that I will still miss you every day of the year and for years to come. Love and loved you bunches - Ride On."
"Happy New Years Jon! Just wanted to give you a quick update on your girls :) Kait had her wisdom teeth out Tuesday, she is doing awesome! Brianna got engaged on New Years Eve. Our girls are growing up, and they miss and love you very much!"
"I miss you so much this Christmas, and every day. We were at your house last Christmas and it was all so wonderful. I know that you are in Heaven celebrating the birthday of our Jesus and that you are so happy and that is a comfort to me - but we really miss you here on earth."
"Merry Christmas Big Brother! I know that you are helping to celebrate the most important of all birthdays but I still wish you were here with me. I love you and miss you more every single day!! Ride On!!!"

"I am missing you more than I thought anyone could miss someone today and every single day of my life. I love you big brother--Ride On!! Oh--by the way--I had to make the whipped cream today! :]"
"You have no idea as to how much you are missed today. Today is for family and you are now with God's family sitting at His table but that does not mean that we do not miss you sitting at ours. I hope that He has goose and pumpkin pie. God Bless, Jon!!!"
"Happy Thanksgiving Jon! A lot of people are missing you today!"
"My prayers are for those who are left here in this life with out Jon, whether he was son, brother, father or friend. Until we meet again my friend."
"I never knew you for very long, but you made a lasting impression on me!!! You had a lot of your Mom`s traits, and that aint bad!!!! As one hunter to another, Happy Hunting in heaven Jon, and I sure hope you meet my son David up there, He was a great hunter also!!!!!Bob"
"The background song - Gone To Soon - is so very appropriate. I know you would have loved it, Jon. Love from your Mom."
"Two months without you, son and seems like yesterday I was talking to you and you were so happy happy. I look at the pictures on the buffet and just cannot accept that you are actually gone to be with God in His Heaven. I know that you are now happier than ever on earth and that is a comfort to me but - darn - I miss you bunches and bunches. Will always love my middle child and my 'pretty' boy."
"I was very blessed to have Jon as my brother...I will love and miss him everyday. I have way too many memories to share them all but some of you will remember..."A heart...a heart...a heart...smack...Waahhhhh" or the pickle incident...and I am sure all of us that know and love Jon can never listen to the radio and sing the correct lyrics to songs. Ride On Jon-I Love You!!!"
"Ive known Jon since 2nd grade and he was a great frend we had so many good times togher through our lives ride on Jon ride ON................."
"When Jon and I were married we spent every weekend in the fall up hunting. Us and our girls, we listened to Garth Brooks all the way up to Rand. Every time any of us hear Garth Brooks we think of Jon. He was a great husband, a good friend and a caring and loving father. My song to Jon is "The Dance" by Garth Brooks RIP Jon we miss you!"
Have a suggestion for us?
