Nothing is more difficult then that Which We Can Not Understand. Kiki, Dom- there is nothing more difficult to understand then a son, a brother, taken too soon. While these things are always more then we can wrap our minds around , it is more so when someone like Johnathan is taken. It leaves us struggling and searching for answers. Those of us that knew Johnathan, know just how much was taken from us... Johnathan was gentle, he was humble and kind and at a very young age he had learned to be empathetic., He was thoughtful and intelligent. Jonathan was quiet and shy with that charming, enigmatic smile. He was respectful and responsible. He had integrity and a strong work ethic. . It helps to know that there is a God of unlimited love, unlimited kindness and intelligence, a God that does not judge us and a God that only loves us. May God Heal you, Change You and Strengthen You, In Body, Soul and Spirit. May He Cover You in His Precious Blood and Fill You with His Holy Spirit. And I know this sounds really simple, however, these few words have really help me when I have found myself despairing.- “Thy Will Be Done” - surrender and turn it over to God. “Thy Will Be Done”.

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Johnathan and express my deepest and most sincere condolences to all of His family especially to his mother. Losing your son has to be the absolute most heartbreaking event to have been set forth in your path. I am familiar with losing someone so very close in relation and all I can tell you at this time is im so so sorry for your loss. It never gets easier and it never goes away but it will be more and more manageable as time goes on so just pray for him and for those days to arrive for you sooner than later. I am also extending my condolences to all of his family and friends ,and anyone touched by his amazing an exceptional life. I graduated from Robertson in 09 and knew Johnathan since 07 and I did know how amazing he was. I am so very sorry and will pray for his arrival in Heaven and all of his family and friends.
