  1. Beautifully written, Hope. Nothing compares to the pain of losing a loved one. I can't imagine the heartbreak you're feeling at Jason's passing. You two are SO strong to have battled this together and found so much love along the way. You will have that forever! My most heartfelt sympathy is with you. After the funeral, if you feel alone or sad, please know that you are the subject of thousands of prayers and thoughts and that Jason's body is gone from this world but his spirit will stay with his sweetheart forever. I promise. I love you both! <3

  3. Hope, was a very beautiful service. It was really wonderful to see you. I'm sorry I didnt have much to say, All I could think, was to hug you, and cry. But always know that I love you dearly, Jason was like a brother to me, like he was to many others. It was so nice to hear about his life with others, I thought I knew quite a bit about him, but learned lots, it was enjoyable to see that he touched many peoples lives! I know he will be dearly missed by you, me, and many many others!!! I'm sure you've had many people say this to you, but I'm always here for you, always. Thank you, for everything.
