Condolence from Mary Burton on December 28th, 2013 8:33 AM

Darlene,Karen, Todd,

It seems such a short time ago that Jon and all of the kids in the subdivision were doing birthday parties, heading off to school where their world widened a little.
And then, they were grown ups with their own children.

I agree that he did have a smile and a wave for former neighbours and I smiled, seeing him do just that this summer.

Remember the best times.

Condolence from Tracy Gilfillan-MacVicar on December 30th, 2013 9:11 AM

Darlene and Karen,
My heart goes out to you both right now. I will always remember Jon as that little brother of a good friend in my youth that was underfoot. He had a contagious smile even back then and it was hard not to smile back even when he was being what all little brothers love to be a pest. I last saw him a few years ago in Exeter when visiting family and he had a big smile and hello and remembered our exploits from childhood. You have my deep condolences and that of all my family.
Tracy Gilfillan-MacVicar
