May 1, 1981-Oct. 22, 2004
My brother was the youngest of 3 girls and was the heart of our family. In the eyes of us, he could do no wrong. That's why this seems like such a horrible mistake because we would have helped him in any way that we could have.
Jon was 23 years old and full of life we he took his on October 22, 2004. He was always doing something fun, whether it was hiking with his dog Harley, snowboarding, camping, fishing, skydiving, cliff jumping, BMXing, skateboarding or dirt biking- he was such a guy's, guy. He always gave of himself completely and named his construction company "Giver Construction" because he liked to "giv'r". He loved his family and friends and this was obvious at his funeral as over 350 people showed up to say their goodbyes.
He was a wonderful brother and friend to me. Always there with a smile on his face and ready to give you a hand or an ear to listen. He had his whole life figured out but it was cut too short. He was so sensitive with the people he loved- giving his love so freely but he had such a hard time receiving it. I thought he was going through a phase and would grow out of it. I wished I could have lived this part of his life for him because I hated to see him in so much pain.
Today is the one month anniversary and it is still so painful. My life was forever changed on that day, I never knew how much I could hurt until I got the call.
Jon- I miss and love you so much. I wish I could relate with you one more time to hear your laugh and feel your warm hugs.
Forever, your sister
