A year has passed. I grant you, those who knew and loved you best will forever feel the pain of your passing but for those who never knew you, though on the periphery you're just another fallen brother, when we stop to think, you're... ANOTHER FALLEN BROTHER. Not just a name, not just a statistic. We didn't have to know you to know the pain of losing you. Granted, we'll never feel it the way your loved ones do, but we still lost a family member and each loss has impact and makes us think. On this date, you're the latest one. May THIS date, NEVER have another name added.

We never met you, but we mourn and miss you, Jason and pray that your continued rest is peaceful. God Bless, Brother.
