It's heart breaking to hear and from our family to yours we love you guys. I remeber his sister and I hanging out and Julie and her son loved rock music. They were a huge influence on my love for music and guitar. Also, the game Diablo. May he rest easy now with his mom.

I'm at a loss for words. The world without Jon and Julie is a but colder. I remember playing games with you. Especially Steve playing Bear with you. I wish I could go back and spend more time. I love you.
