"Jason, You were such an amazing, funny, wonderful person! I am so thankful for all the memories, teaching me how to drive (pass don't push!) helping me get through many tough times and being there for so many great times! Zarie sure is going to miss her best buddy, but she is glad to have a new angel. It was very hard to tell her you were gone but the next day she asked if you got wings, I told her yes but they were boy wings! You will always be in our hearts and we love you more than you know."
