Jonathan was a wonderful and will never be forgotten. I have never met a more caring and loving man in my life, I have worked with Marie for 4 years almost every night of the week and I don't think Jonathan missed a night of coming into have dinner with her, how more romantic of man could you find. My deepest sympathy to all his family and all my love and prayers go out to Marie. Love, Veronica

We never met Jonathan. We know Marie, one of the kindest persons we have ever known. For Marie to love him as she did, Jonathan must have been an amazon person. His loss is such a tragedy and loss for all of us. Our deepest sympathy to Marie, the family and friends.
