Tell us about your loved one.

Jonathan was the most caring, loving person you'd ever want to meet. He was all about peace, and caring for one another. He touched so many lives in his few 18 years with us. He loved all animals, making tye dyed shirts for his friends, cooking, and he had a real green thumb. He loved making people laugh. He had a job in which any position the manager put him in, he would do his assigned job, with no questions asked. He was just a couple of days away from going to a culinary school, and on the day of his funeral, a company he applied for ( for a second income), called to say Jon got the job. Jon was just at a major turning point in his life when he went to an electric music concert. Jon either took a combo of illegal drugs, or someone put something in his drink. He left the concert with none of his friends by his side. He got ultra hot outside ( it was 20 degrees outside). Jonathan walked onto the expressway, and was killed. His 'friends' were no where to be found.

Tell us about Jonathan's struggle with addiction

Jonathan used pot occasionally, but if he was doing anything else, our family was in aware of it.

What made Jonathan smile?

Holding his dog Teanie made him smile, because the dog would always smile when she saw him. He also smiled when I'd make him a home cooked meal, or I'd bring him hot chocolate in the winter when he worked outside, or an iced tea in the hot summer. He also smiled when he was with his girlfriend, and I knew he was safe with her.

What do you miss most about Jonathan?

His laughter, smile, hugs, and just all around presence. After his passing, I am truly grateful that he is able to give me signs on a daily basis. I know he is always with me....forever 18
