Mrs. Adams I really can't think of the right words... Jonathan was a loyal and honest friend. To know him was to love him.
He had an appetite for life and food! When I tell you we enjoyed many meals and work outings together... everyone wanted to be at our table! We had the most food, the most drinks and just an overall great time! Jonathan and I laughed a lot... and boisterous! We always had a good time!
The last thing I did for Jonathan was send him money for food. I will hold on to that forever.
I will forever miss my dear friend. I will forever miss him.
