Jon, I really missed you today. I spent the afternoon and evening sorting through your things. I hadn't cried so hard since the week you died. I love you and miss you more than I could ever adequately express. You were an amazing young man. You will always be in the center of my heart. And never forgotten!

Jon, I was up north last week and enjoyed a 380,44, and a AK-47!! Couldn't stop thinking about you. My Mom and I miss the times you would come into the wine bar. You always lit up the room like no one else and I miss it so very much.

All my love,

Jon; how could I ever forget you? You were the best friend that this old fool ever had. We did some pretty funny things together, and we also did some pretty righteous and charitable things together. I don't know if I'll ever have another friend as good as you were, but then again, you were one of a kind....sorta like me!!haha Love you always, Dan

Jonathan, I love you and miss you so much. I still remember how much I fell in love with you the day you were born. I couldn't imagine loving anyone more than I loved you. You were such an amazing kid. There was nothing you ever did that caused me to love you any less. You will always be in my heart. Love you forever and ever, MOM

Hi Jonathan! I am missing you so much!-I miss seeing your face, hearing your voice, and receiving your hugs. It's still so weird to experience life here without you. I can't believe you get to be with both grandpas, grandma, Steven, and Uncle Erb. Give everyone a big hug for me. STILL wish you were here. All my love forever!

Happy 36th Birthday Jonathan! I miss you so much! I miss your sarcasm, your wit, your dry sense of humor and your passion to help others. Mostly, I miss your presence. You made us laugh. You made us cry. You were an amazing son! My heart beats-with yours forever. I love you!

First time smoking with bro

Shared by Nathan Ricker on May 1, 2013

First time smoking with my brother Jon, 2nd time altogether

Hanging out with Jon and Danielle at my moms pool, Jon had found "evidence" of my relations with my girlfriend at the time from a prior night and was bringin it up to me.. LOL  (semi inside story, sorry for not going into detail but not the topic of tonights story)


We were chilling at the pool and I was sharing with Jon my first experience of smoking with some friends (was 20 years old)

we smoked some of his ganja in a bowl while swimming.

I remeber feeling like nothing was happening, followed shortly after by uncontrollable fits of laughter and joy.

We hung out for a little bit and then headed down to the tavares police department; either   to pick up steven or visit, not sure which.

I do remeber stopping by Burger King and getting some grub and I remember demanding to let my "snowboarder" pay [snowboarder refers to capital one card at the time]

Once we arrived at the parking lot of Tavares police station, I remeber cops were driving their vehicles out of the parking lot past us, at some point I decided to flick off a cop as he drove by, the cop reversed and inquired if was just flicked off by passenger in back seat to which we explained it was a misunderstanding and afterwhich Jon and Danielle decided it be best for me to be at home versus the parking lot of police station so they took me back and went back for steven lol I also remeber sleeping very well that night :D

love and miss ya bro

This one was taken on O ctober 3, 2009 in Tampa, right before the Metallica concert. They ended up confiscating the plastic flask of booze that Jon was tucking into his pants, so that the venue could sell us piss warm, flat $9.00 shitty beers. The show was a freakin blast!!!!

It's amazing all of the names and stuff that we've come up with for certain people; I was home sick again today working on my college finals when I felt up to it, and just thinking of all of the silly voices we did, and the names we came up with for people, and the life situations we would come up with for people that we didn't even really know, then discovering we were right over 60% of the time. That's one of the things that I truly miss about our friendship, how we could totally be ourselves when we were together. As weird or inmature as it often may have been, I will cherish those little things forever.


Love you, bro
