Jon was the Greatest bosses I ever had. We would seat at a computer and play golf for hours. I never got in trouble for it. His Birthday was the same as mine. He was 11 years older. When friends talk about work I would think of him and tell my friends what a great boss he was.... I pray that he rest in peace.

My heartfelt condolences to you Judy and your family. As Mitch Albom Wrote; “Lost love is still love. It takes a different form, that’s all.You can’t see their smile or bring them food or tousle their hair or move them around a dance floor. But when those sensors weaken, another heightened memory. Memory becomes your partner. You nurture it, you hold it, you dance with it.“ Jon Was a great guy and will be sorely missed. May the Lord give you strength and peace at this time. May you also find comfort in your memories. God bless you and yours!
