Carol, I am so very sorry for your loss. Daryl and I moved to Sioux Falls a couple of years ago so I am often out of touch with AL happenings. I just happened to be looking at Bayview's site and came across Jonathan's obituary. I was so shocked and am heartbroken for you. I can only imagine the pain that will forever be in your heart. Sending huge hugs your way and know that we will pray for peace to come to your hearts from above. 😢🙏🙏❤️

Jonathan it was always a relief when you would show and help with the packages while I managed theWest Edinaat Christmas. You were such a hard worker and had a positive attitude during such a crazy time of the year. I always threatenedto steal you away from your regular station. I had that chance when you bid tothe Normandale station as one of my fantastic window clerks - loved by all of the customers in the area. You will be missed by many.
