Our Jason, son, brother, uncle, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend, left us July 18, 2013 to be with the angels.
Jason was born July 28, 1973 to the most wonderful parents a child could wish for. Shirley and Floyd welcomed him along with everyone else in his family. Jason was blessed with a large family who loved him very much.
Jason is now in heaven with most of them, and one day we will all be together again. For Jason is not gone, he is still here with us. He is here in the breeze that blows by, he is in the setting sun, and most of all, he is in our hearts, where Jason will be forever.
Jason loved his family. He never met a stranger. He would help anyone he could.
He took after our father and went into construction; anything to do with his hands or working outside. Then to our surprise he started to cook. He learned from mom how to cook this and that, and Mom really enjoyed watching him cook.
He was always so precise with everything he did.
Jason was one of a kind, and everyone who met him, loved him. He just had that easy-going feeling about everything that made you feel comfortable to be around him, and he was a lot of fun to be around.
Jason had many loves in his life, and one of those was fishing. Oh, my goodness he would be at the river, pond, or lake, didn’t matter to him, so I know, without a doubt, that he is fishing with his granddads and uncles, having a wonderful time.
So next time you catch that big one or feel a warm breeze brush your face, smile and think of Jason, cause he is there to remind us not to cry for him but smile cause he enjoyed his life, and he would want that for us. He knows we will see him again, even though it is the hardest thing for us to see and understand that right now.
For my parents, my older brother, Rocky, my daughter, Amanda, myself, and the rest of Jason’s family and friends, I wish I could find the right words to say that will make this easier for all of us, but I cannot. I wish I could answer the one question everyone wants the answer to, Why? But I believe in my heart that one day God will answer that for us.
Jason also had a love of animals, mostly cats. So we ask in place of flowers, please send a donation to your local animal shelter or just help a family with pets that are in need of food for their pets, in memory of Jason. Jason would do that all the time, just out of the blue he would get a can of cat food for any cat that needed it, but that was our Jason, there to help. It is so funny because as I am writing this, I have Amanda and my dog, Little Man, laying right beside me. I told Jason all about Little Man and knew he would love to have met him.
Jason will be so very much missed. It is such an emptiness in our hearts that will never be filled with him leaving us. You always try to come up with that one thing you will miss most of all, but to us it will be everything. To us he was and will always be our everything.
We love you Jason.
We will have a service for Jason, Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013, at McGhees Mill Road Baptist Church, with Pastor Frankie Reaves. Visitation is between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m., and the service begins at 2 p.m. After the service we will have a memorial service at his parents’ home.
We will share our memories and tell stories about some of the crazy things he did, and he could do some crazy things. We just want to be able to let everyone share in our love for Jason. We may get to hear stories that we haven’t heard before.
This service would give us more stories and memories of Jason to cherish. We want to laugh, cry and say to ourselves, yep that sounded just like Jason. All of his friends who went fishing with him, we would love to hear some of the tall fishing tales you all have told over the years.
At this service we ask in place of flowers to bring donations of pet food or make a donation to your local animal shelter in memory of Jason. Animals, mostly cats were very close to Jason, and he would enjoy this very much knowing the animals he loved so much are being fed in his memory.
