    I recently heard that Jonathan had passed. I was so sorry to hear the news. I extend my deepest sympathies to his family and those who cared deeply about him. It was easy to care for him.

    Although Jonathan and I had not been in touch for many years he and his family still hold a special place in my heart. I have many wonderful memories from the time we were close and often think of him. He was kind and generous and so loving.

    I thoroughly enjoyed having Jonathan in classes I taught at Regis
    University where he was a graduate student. He often provoked a depth
    of discussion which was unusually insightful and profound. I appreciated Jonathan’s intelligence and truth seeking. I remember a Holiday party he attended at my home many years ago where he talked about the metaphor of LIGHT prevailing in the world.

    May Jonathan find all universal truth and light as he rests in peace.

    With fond memories,
    Sue Lawson-Cauthon
