It was 12 years ago today and I too miss you Jon. There were so many people there that night trying everything they could to help. Tyler’s attempts to bring you back to us are so vivid.
William Wordsworth once said “The best portion of a good man’s life: his little, nameless unremembered acts of kindness and love.” This is you Jon.
