  33. Gayle and family;

    My deepest sympathies to you all for the sudden loss of your dear son, brother and friend. It’s always difficult to lose someone and to have it happen so suddenly is such a shock to everyone. My heart aches for all of you as to try to come to grips with this tragic loss. I was so stunned Gayle when you told me the news. I hardly had time to process it and to realize what you were saying. It must be 1,000 times harder for you. I know these words may sound empty, but my thoughts are with you and your family and prayer for you of comfort, support and peace from your God and friends/family and that you will feel free to share your heart with those whom you trust.

    Jason’s death comes as devastating news to myself and anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. His legacy was characterized by his big heart, kind spirit and willingness to help anyone out, no matter what the circumstance. I feel that I haven’t quite come to accept the reality of his passing and hope that I get clarity on what happened as the days go by. Rest In Peace, knowing that your spirit will always be with us, guiding those of us who knew you through life with a gentle heart and kind spirit.

  50. Cassandra Buchanan :

    I would like to send my condolences to the Middleton family. Jason and I have had so many memories together growing up and as young adults, where it is hard to pick just one. He always spoke so fondly of every person in his family, looking up to each and every one of you, which only made him embrace into the smart, handsome, loving man he will always be remembered as. He wasn’t just those things, he was a truly romantic prince, with the most open and honest heart. We always had the best conversations complimented with our quick-witted sarcasm. I have so much to thank him for, and I can honestly say he helped shape me into the person I am today.
    The only thing harder then saying goodbye, is to not have the chance. I am so heartbroken for your loss and the loss for each person he has touched and for the people he will no longer be able to meet. All I have ever wanted for him is to have an amazing life, full of love, happiness and adventure. I know even though he was taken so young, he will rest peacefully knowing he has accomplished all of those very important gifts in life. He was my first love, and he will always have a place in my heart and will always stay alive through our memories shared together.
