With Deepest Sympathy
Rhonda & Sidney,
My heart is so broken for you and your family. I just can not imagine losing a child, but I do know what hurt it is to lose a spouse and I want you to know you have my love and condolences. I thank God for Jonathan’s life and the good memories you will have and may He sustain you and your family not only at this time but the time to come. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.
Dear Jones Family,
Jonathan was a very sweet and polite child who would do anything to make someone smile. He will be missed by several people! I know he is in Heaven right now looking down on us. Its not easy to lose someone but theres a a good side to everything, someone else will know the LORD!!because of Jonathan. Just keep remembering his beautiful smile and his happiness.
My thougts and prayers are you and your family. I know the Lord is with you and will get you through this time of loss. I pray for comfort and strenght for you. I wish I could be there with you, but just know I’m here if you need me. I’m only a phone call away. I love you…
Rhonda and family,
I wanted you to know that you and your family are in our prayers. We just found out about Jonathan tonight. He was such a sweet boy and you are such a sweet and caring mom. I will never forget your generosity when we were facing Miranda’s 1st surgery- it really meant a lot when you came over and spoke words of encouragement. I want you to know this and I’m so sorry for your loss but heaven’s gain. God must’ve needed another angel. Take care and we will keep you in our prayers.
Jonathan was a very special young man. I know that he loved GOD with all his heart. Whenever we would see him he always had a smile on his face, letting the true love of GOD show. Jonathan inspired many people, and has touched many lives. I pray that GOD will be with the entire family, and give you comfort, and peace during the diffcult times.

I remember Jonathan sitting in church on Sundays. I also remember him coming up and greeting my husband, Wilbur, each time. Wilbur thought a lot of him. He displayed a good Christian attitude each time I saw him. He will be greatly missed. I know he is rejoicing with Jesus in Heaven now. Wilbur and I will continue praying for the family during their time of grief.
