    Evie and Larry,
    My sympathy goes out to you in the loss of Jonathan. He was such a caring individual, strong in his faith and so artistic. He will be so missed by many. In the past few years I would run into him downtown, at the Baptist church and he always showed me some of the crosses he made to handout to others. What a ministry he started!

    “Like a bird singing in the rain, let grateful memories survive in time of sorrow.” Robert Louis Stevenson
    I remember Jonathan always helping at the elementary. He love to help Evie work on props and decorations on her classroom. I loved how he learned to play banjo like his dad. One day you will again be with your son, but he will always be with you in the many memories you both shared with Jonathan. Forever your friend. Sue Nevatt

    I am so sorry for the loss of your dear son, Jonathan. I did not know him, but see that he graduated with my son L.J. I lost L.J. in July of 2013. His birth date was 4/01/79. I know the grief and loss you must be feeling. It is my feeling that sometimes our loved ones are just too good to live on this old earth and God needs them more. I will be praying for your family and that God’s Love and Grace will sustain you during this difficult time. ~vicki~

    My dearest Uncle Larry and Aunt Evie, I am so sorry for the loss of Jonathan. I remember playing with him while you adults shorted out your Mother and Daddy’s belongings. Those are some of my fondest memories from that time period. Grieving never really heals. It stays with you and becomes apart of you. And that’s ok. You never have to let him go. Let his memory stay with you always. Let it be a comfort to you. Please Know my Husband Howard and I are praying for you. If you ever want to contact me you can find me on FB as Cara Whitcher.
