Danielle and girls: I am sorry that I could not attend today, but know that I wanted to give you a hug because I am sad for you. I know that several of your Cascade, MD friends are there, and that makes me smile. Please know that I am thinking of you and the girls, and wishing you a lighter burden on your heart as time goes forward and you find it easier to smile at all your happy memories with Jason. Peace be with you and all of Jason's family and friends.

Jason was a talented storyteller, always willing to share his adventures to help pass a long night. He freely shared his wisdom and experience with his friends and colleagues, and was a guide in a confusing world. He will be greatly missed.

Danielle and girls, James, Dawn, Briennne and Tara: I have such wonderful memories of Jason as a little boy -- so energetic and all smiles. Our visits to Jacksonville were always special as his cousins, Megan and Chuck, would laugh and play together. He grew up to be a very special man who was admired by many. He was a wonderful father and would have been such a delightful grandfather to his recently born grandson. Jason never lost his playfulness with children. A very special gift indeed. My heart aches for all of you and my prayers and thoughts will be with you always. Please find comfort in the memories of happy times shared. Aunt Carolyn, Uncle John, Chuck and Megan
