My heart is deeply saddened by the sudden loss of your beautiful son. I ,also, had a 19 year old daughter that was taken from me suddenly. So I can feel your pain. You will have a process to go through now in getting back to some form of normalization. I am here if you ever need to talk or you need advice in that process. Focus on all of the good times and how fortunate you are to have had a "borrowed angel". God bless all of you in this difficult time. May He bring you some peace.

To Jesse's family -

I am so very sorry to hear about Jesse. I'm having a very hard time accepting that the little boy I once used to babysit is gone. I have so many fond memories of all the boys, but the one thing that sticks out in my mind is how sweet, thoughtful and caring he was for such a little boy at the time. I haven't seen the boys in a long time, but I'm sure he grew into such a wonderful young man.

Love to you all,


The Linkerhof family

Words can not express how deeply your family is thought of in this time of sorrow. Life is borrowed time and we forget that all to often. It is not an easy parting however and not ours to say it will ever be easy. Keeping the great memories and shared family times in life alive in our hearts, help to make the smiles and laughter last forever longer. I am so sorry for your loss and your families loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time and always.

Julie, Scott, Jamie, and Family - I just can't imagine what you are going through right now. Children are such a blessing from above - remember all the good times you had with Jesse and know he is a wonderful place right now! Stephen and I were going to try to make it to the viewing, but we are not able to get there in time since we live in Meadville now. But know that our sincere thoughts and prayers are with you!! Take care!!
