Jonathan and I worked at Pizza hut together. He was an outstanding young man. I remember it was my birthday he said when I get 30 I will always be 30 even when I am 45 I will always be 30. He had a way of making you smile when you were down. He will be missed

I am so saddened by the loss of your son! We are never prepared to lose a loved one! I cannot imagine the pain you are going through! I pray God will wrap his arms around you and help you through these days. I know you have many wonderful memories and I hope you can let them make you smile! Just remember the day Johnathan took his last breath here on earth he breathed his first breath in Heaven!
Love you! Galan
