    Thinking of Jon immediately brings to mind the song “Dancing Queen”. At every opportunity he would take the mic and enthusiastically sing it. Often I’ve seen him happily zooming down the road on his scooter with his helmet hanging off haphazardly. Then there was his pride in being a vital part of our Church. Jon had his limitations but it didn’t stop him from living a full and rewarding life. RIP Jon; you’re with your beloved Treasure now.

    Beloved brother Jon, no farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye, you were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why.
    Love, Sister Nancy.
