"Hi Jonathan. I really meant to leave this message earlier but got caught up in family stuff. We teachers aren't supposed to say this, but you were one of my favorites! I will never forget the first time I saw a painting you had done on one of the easels; such talent! You were always so respectful to us, and so nice to everyone, always smiling. I'm so sorry you left so soon, and I feel so bad for your mom, but I know you will be together with your family again one day in the future and things will be better, and everyone can talk and laugh about the day you decided to ditch the Learning Center. :) See you again, Jonathan. <3
"4 years later & it's still hard to believe you are gone. I wish we all could have saved you. We miss you everyday. You lit up everyone's world! Your daughter would think you were the funniest person in this world! Your sense of humor is missed so much. There were no dull moments when you were around. Everytime we go camping, Patrick has to point out your corner! Jonathan's corner! Every time! He wishes all the guys would have gotten to take that trip that you guys were planning that next January right before you passed. It's just so sad that you are gone. I wish things were different. Your daughter is beautiful, smart & very caring ! You would be so proud. Enjoy heaven, I'm sure it's so beautiful there. Love, The Sanchez Family"
"Everyday there is something that reminds me of you. I remember the way you lived life back when I knew you...always for the moment. Always so happy...laughing...smiling...making everyone else laugh with your goofiness. And your smile, that smile could light up a room. Sometimes I still can't believe you're gone but knowing you are at peace is comforting. You are loved and missed by so many that your memory will live on forever. Today many wicks will burn for you just as hearts will yearn for you...but I know in my heart we will meet again some day."
"Morning Jon I'm just laying here remembering all the good times we shared, I can't believe it's been 4 years since we seen your smile or you made us laugh. I love spending time with your mom and grandma they are the most caring and giving people I know. Your daughter Rilee is just a joy to be around you would be proud of her, she is so smart and beautiful. Till we meet again love and miss you Jon. Love your Aunt Candy."
"Jonathan I still can't believe that it's 4 years today that you went to be with our Lord. There is not a day goes by that I dont think of you. Sure do miss you bud. Rilee is such a joy when I get to see her with your parents, she is so smart and has a heart of gold, she always thinks of others you would be proud of her. Until we meet again love you Aunt Kathy"
"Hey Jonathan , I am that lady you don't know , whose in a club that is no fun, but yet it is a club your mom and I are in, it's a sad club because it's a club where mothers who have had to know the loss of losing a child , no matter what age , or why, or how? It's just not natural for a patent to outlive one of their kids, so the only thing good I guess about the club and kind of wierd actually is sometimes you can meet a person and not even know there story, but you can sense this void, this pain, it's in their eyes, there laughter, it's permanent , because we change , were never the same, and do the club , you really don't have to tell the other parent anything because we already know, so, that's how we are connected by my Jonathon who was only 7, and I think of him all the time and on days like this I think of him being near or around you , and when I do it makes me smile , because when you talk your both going to realize your from dos Palos, and then .. You will both just be chatting away!! So heaven is beautiful and I take comfort in knowing you found peace you were searching for, was the journey gods plan, I don't think so, but the arrival is what mattered, Jesus welcomed you and wiped away all your tears, and put the peace in your heart, and joy, so with my Jonathon he took away his sickness that physically destroyed him and made him whole again, so a lot of milestones have significant meanings but today milestone is, you both found your safe haven, no more pain, no more tears, just joy .. And yes we have to deal with our pain and sadness still, and that's not your fault, every mother will always worry , no matter where you are , earth or heaven, it's the way it is, but ... That being said... It's hard, your mom works so hard at keeping your memory alive, helping others, she is never going to let anyone forget your presence and your whole family mourns you, but more than that they celebrate you, and that's what keeps you close still yet! Please give Jonathon ( my little man) a high five for me! Send floods of memories down to your family today , your smile ! There is something about that smile of yours !"
"Not a minute goes by that I don't think of you. I miss you all the time. In a lot of ways it doesn't seem like it's been 4 years since you left me. I still take it day by day. You meant the world to me. I was so proud of you. You were hard working and would help in a moment notice. You were a great daddy to Rilee. You loved her more than anything. I wish I could have saved you. I love and miss you Son. Xoxo. ❤"

I keep ur family in my prayers and i hope ur having a blast up there man. Until we meet again old friend."

"I remember when we were in head start and I had a broken arm. You never let anybody close to me and always had to walk ahead of me. We grew up together and collected each others habits. Always doing something we weren't suppose to be doing. I miss you cuz and I promise to always love rilee and im glad her and my ariel are always asking about each other. Reminds me of us even tho we always fought but in the end we were best friends. Tell grandma and grandpa I say hi. Love you cuz. This one is for you."
"Wishing you a Happy Birthday tomorrow my Son. I love and miss you all the time. Words cannot describe how much. The day you were born was one of the most memorable moments of my life. After 48 hours of labor you sarted breathing on your own and the monitors went crazy, The Drs. rushed me into surgery & it freaked me out. I begged God to give you life. when you came out I was relieved to hear you cry, you struggled all night. They pumped your stomach and gave you a spinal tap. You cried all night but it was music to my ears. The nurses swore you cried momma, momma, momma all night but I loved it. God blessed me with our 26 years together and although this is your 2nd birthday without us together physically we are always together spiritually. I carry you with me everywhere. You will forever be in my heart. Sending hugs and kisses to you. Happy Birthday tomorrow. Love, mom ❤ I love you"
