Such a terrible loss. I am so very sorry to hear from my Dad about his passing. He had spoken often and with admiration of the skilled and gifted craftsman that John was and I know he is devastated as well by the loss of a good man. Prayers and condolences to his family.

Our sincere condolences for the loss of your precious child Jonathan. We know there are no words that can heal your heavy hearts at this time, but please have Faith that he is now graced with the Abiding Peace and Unconditional Love of our Heavenly Father! This Beautiful Poem that I Cherish is for Jonathan. God's Garden God Looked around His garden and found an empty place, And then he looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face. He put His arms around You and lifted You to Rest, God's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the Best! He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain, He knew that you would never Get well on earth again. He saw that the road was getting rough, And the hills are hard to climb. So He closed your weary eyelids And whispered "Peace be Thine." It breaks our Hearts to lose you, But you didn't Go Alone, For part of us went with you, This Day God called you Home! God Bless and Give you All Peace until He Brings us ALL Home Again!

As the years go by, it is expected to see folk pass on...but to lose a child is one of the hardest to bear. Children are supposed to live to the future, not be lost in the past. My sorrow for your loss, and my hope that you find peace in good memories.

A child is the greatest gift given to us, and it enslaves us to the fates of this world. We nurture it, we help it grow, and we do anything in our power to make sure it survives. The lost of a child is the most tragic thing in the world, the fates don
