Mrs. Spencer, I am so very sorry for your loss. I am Olivia Holt's mom and she could barely talk to me on the phone as the tears fell. She really wants to be here for Jonathan's service but is unable to leave her USMC post at Parris Island, SC. Her brother and I will see you at the service. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help in any way.

Jonathen was a sweet man. Him and Zach use to come and visit me at work all the time. Every once in a while ti went to see him at chili's with myt friends. The last time I saw him I had just gotten off work and we stood outside talking for hours. He always talked about cruising and riding around with Zac. I use to give them a hard time about being careful while driving around/speeding. Jonathan was a good man with a big heart. Zach and him always knew how to put smiles on peoples faces. When I got the news I couldn't believe it. I literally had just seen him not long before it happened. Situations like this make you realize you need to cherish every possible moment you have closest to you. I still can't believe it's true. Sending prayers to y'all.

My prayers are with you all now and forever. Please know that I am here for you should you feel you need me for anything. I love you so very much. Aunt Debbie, Uncle Greg and the our family.

I’m so sorry to hear the loss of your family. We miss you guys in Ohio and hope that you can remember the good times that you had with him during his short life. Give your daughter a big hug for me.

Jonathan was my. Grandson. He was such a loving man. My heart is aching and I think it will until I join him. He was my first grandson and God blessed us with the best. I can't believe this has happened.
