    Jonathan…it hurts me to write this but I couldn’t let this moment go by without saying how much you are loved and how greatly you will be missed. We were inseparable in 10th grade (lol), and even after many many years and long distances, you still and always will hold a special place in my heart. Rest peacefully dear old friend.
