"Another year Jonathan, my how times flies by! I pray your hopes and dreams are happening in HEAVEN since they were missed on Earth! There is not a day goes by that the love for you is not felt by someone here! I think when the heartache begins here on Earth when someone leaves us, is the passageway to see God and his KINGDOM! Love you forever kiddo!"

""It's so hard to imagine it's been near 4 years now that you've been gone.. my goodness my baby would be 21 his next birthday.. I was watching you mature and I believe at that age you would have been an excellent example for the world around you. Makes me proud I am your mom. I know a great portion of your maturity was from me. Many others had their hands in your maturity too. I am so glad you were able to spend that summer with your dad and your grandma.Life goes on we know and our angels guide us through each day.Losing those you love is so hard. Now you walk the streets of gold with my best friend. I wish you could have been here for him to meet. You would have loved him too. Now you two are friends forever.. One day I will join all of you and we will be together forever. I love you Jonathan.""

"Hi Jonathan
I met you through the eyes and words of your mother and your sister Cassandra. I know you must know my Heather who is in heaven with you too. Your mom misses you so much as does your sister I know you are a great young man and would have love to meet you. One day I will meet you with the rest of all of our kids, But your mom has told me what a wonderful young man you were so special and I know you were.
But you left too soon as did my Heather, You are so special rest and soon we all will be together.
Wish I could have met you
Cathy Connally"

""Jonathan" when I met your mom 10 years ago we clicked right away.  Then we got to talking and my son Corey was in the same grade as yours.  You were so little then and then at the age of 16 you were taken away like that, god only knew he wanted you at an early age.  But you were to young to die.  But I know you were such a good kid and brighten up many peoples lives that you came in contact with.  Your mom has come a long way from the day you died, she is a strong woman and a great friend.  Keep looking over all your friends and family, we will meet again someday, God bless!!!!!!"

"I haven't been here much.. I go to you and Alex's grave usually. I think it really is still a shock. I can't figure it out or understand it. Makes no sense. So much is wrong with this world and yet these young kids have to die.. why not the ones doing the world harm. I constantly ask myself this question. The latest fad in this sick world-- people forgetting they have children in car seats-- seriously you forgot that you own a child?-- God trusted them with a treasure so special and they abuse it. I know every time a new child enters heaven your right there. Your the greatest sitter heaven has got and a wonderful leader so if I knew these families I could tell them not to worry my Jonathan is there looking after their little ones.. they'll be ok. I miss you so much Jonathan.. I LOVE YOU JONATHAN <3"

"Jonathan was with us all a wonderful and very full and eventful 16 years. He learned the most important lesson in life and that was to be helpful to those around him whenever they needed it. He cared more about everyone else than he did himself.I want to find ways to continue that legacy in his honor. I loved my son very much and I miss him a lot."
