Gretchen, I just found out and so sorry for your and Kaelyns loss. Jonathan was such an amazing guy, father and husband. May he be at peace with his Maker. Morgan says she is praying for you and Kaelyn bunches. May you find comfort and peace in the days ahead...

Dr Meyer, I am so very sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences to you, Kaelyn and the rest of the family. I recall the care and compassion that you showed while treating my wife, Joanne prior to her death. It meant a great deal to us during very difficult times. I trust you will receive equal compassion from those around you.

Gretchen, we are so sorry to hear of your husband's death. We know that all the sorry in the world cannot or will not bring back your best friend, husband and step father to your daughter. We personally never met your husband but we know that he had to be an upstanding and wonderful person to have caught your attention.

May you find comfort in knowing that God has his loving arms around you and your family as you all go through this.

I was incredibly fortunate to have Johnathan as my best friend through high school, college and beyond. We shared late-night phone calls about nothing, heartbreaks, triumphs and a few too many games of pool, listening to James Brown. I'd never been on a boat before meeting Johnathan, and he grilled a mean steak with mushrooms. As far as I'm concerned, he was family.

He was the epitome of the "stand-up guy." Johnathan was someone who did the right thing, simply because

I was fortunate to have known Jonathan through Gretchen. His love of his wife and Kaelyn are gifts that can never be taken away. Their wedding is one of the most beautiful and poignant memories I have. Standing soaking in the rain, they didn't even seem to care as they made their vows to each other. It was beautiful how in stride they were happy despite the downpour. I pray for the family he has left behind and the hole in your hearts his absence has created.

Sincerely,
Shari Galvin
