I did not know him. But I do know the love a family has for one another. This makes my heart break for all of you that are feeling lost right now. I have never and more than likely will never meet anyone that will read this message. But I love you all and want nothing but peace for you and your loved ones.

I am so sorry for the loss of Jordyn, such as special young man, who was trying so hard to survive. We will never understand the burdens God gives us as parents, siblings, family and friends but he has said he will never give us a burden so great as we can't endure. We just have to rely on his strength at times like this because it seems we have none left. May your many wonderful memories of Jordyn become your treasures and give you some peace and eventually, smiles.
Sorry I can't be with you during this time but please know my thoughts are there and my love, Aunt Rose
