We all have our favourite memories of Jon's life
and the person he always will be in our hearts and minds. I invite you,
if you wish, to share some of your memories in this post. Even though

live on through us.
My thoughts and prayers go to all of my
brothers and sisters in the community, especially his partner Steve
Loki. We all mourn and remember together and I hope those grieving
remember that there is always somebody to talk to and share your pain
We may have our differences, but we are all part of the
same community and same family. We are here to care for each other so
please, do not hesitate to reach out to another if you ever need to.
