My sincere condolences to the Sewell Family. Love and light.

Kari, my thpughts and prayers are with you. May you find peace knowing he is with our Lord and Savior.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I always enjoyed meeting with him and I was just able to see his marbling a few weeks ago! Like you mention, he always greeted me by saying he was blessed, but he was also a blessing!

As Bart’s mom I knew Jon well. He was the sweetest young man. A special talent and joyful soul. We will all miss him. My sympathy from our family to yours. Sincerely Kim

I will miss you coming into the YMCA. I really enjoyed showing you different ways to get the most out lifting weights. You always projected a positive attitude. Peace be with you. I will keep you in my prayers.

My deepest sympathy to your family. I had the pleasure of working with your son when I owned back in the game. Jon was such a sweet young man and an extremely talented artist. God has called home a beautiful angel who made this world a more beautiful place through his art.

Tim, I am so sorry to hear of Jon's passing. I know it was hard to let him go and that you and your family will miss him terribly.

Dear Kari, Pattie and I are so sorry to hear of Jon's passing. You, and all your family are in our prayers now. May God's blessings be upon you.

Jon, your spirit was a gift. You were always seeking Truth, and sharing God's light & love! WE were indeed blessed by knowing you! Prayers of comfort to family & friends.

Thinking of your family and the heartache of missing Jonathan.. remember him as a young boy playing little league with Tyson.. what a wonderful man he obviously grew up to be! I’m sure Tyson was one of those who met him on the other side of the veil into Heaven.. the joy in knowing he knew our Savior is deepest you can have! Bless you all with wonderful memories of Jonathan!! Sincerely Julie and Jeff Snyder
