My heart hurts for Jonathan’s family and friends. I can’t wrap my head around his passing just yet. He was my sons good friend in school and I knew him well. I enjoyed seeing on FB his wedding pictures, birth of his daughter and how he became a wonderful good man. I wish I was able to physically hug you Sally and Chris, and take away your huge pain and sorrow, but sadly I can not as I live too far away. I can pray for you both and Jonathan’s wife and daughter that our Lord brings you peace and comforts you all. I love you Sally and Chris. I’m truly heartbroken.
