Jonah will be missed by many.. I had the pleasure of watching him grow up to the sweet boy he was since we were the neighbors. It is still hard to believe he passed, but I know he is making his music and singing his heart out. Glad we got to see him this last summer. My prayers r with the family and miss u guys. R.I.P. JONAH JONAH always in our hearts!

Deepest & heartfelt condolences, Gina, Tom, & Noah. Jonah's vibrant smile and incredible personality touched so many lives. His smile was infectious. (And Jonah really knew how to let a "cookie baker" know she was appreciated!)
