2 years ago today was the last time I saw you……. It was and is hard……. Although you are not here physically I still appreciate what and who you are to me…….. and just so you know you have the best sister in the world….I did all the things that sisters do like got on your nerves, intentionally nitrated the heck out of you, called you for everything, made stupid mistakes and expect you to fix them……but I also gave you my homework in high school and college so we're even!
Missing you

Dear Cordelia,
I am so sorry for the lost of your son,my prayers are with you and your family.I know it has been a long time.But I just found this out today
March 9,2012.If you ever have time please get in contact with me.
December 04, 2011
Well Jonathan, this is a hard and happy time in my life..hard because momma has left me here but happy that she is in no more pain. I'm sure you know by now that momma has joined you in Heaven and I'm sure you are making her laugh as you always did. Momma passed on the same day as you one yr later and we held her Homegoing service on the same day as yours 1 yr later. She always considered you her other son, well bro take care of moms and I can't wait until the day that I'm Blessed enough to reunite with both of you. RIP brother
December 03, 2011
You will always be in my heart..
December 03, 2011
Just found out today :( Been looking for you for a year. You will forever be in my heart.. Erlyn
November 09, 2011
? I wanted to call you today to say I love you, but your old number is no longer in service. I tried the operator she said 'sorry I have no number for you'. I tried to go to your house, but you don't live there anymore. The post office has no forwarding address. I guess heaven is just too far away? I Love You, I Miss You. You are in my heart always and forever. Copy and paste in remembrance of Loved ones gone but not forgotten ?
November 08, 2011
Jonathan, looking forward to seeing you again when my time is up here. we gotta alot of catching up to do, so make sure the double-dutch is aired up, and the white walls are clean. So we can ride like we used to. Man the short time you was here i see you touched alot of people. I catch myself sitting back and thinking about all the things we use to do coming up like staying in the basement when we should have been at school, the trip to texas, and the hitch-hiker your granddad let ride with us and we had to plot on how to remove him from the camper, when he didn't want to leave. after he ate up most of the sandwiches. i just regret that i went missing for all those years and everytime i think about it makes me realize that i lost a brother that i didn't have. when they seen you they seen me or it was the other way around. we was never far apart until we both joined the service.I will always keep our promise we made to each other when we were teenagers, because i know if this was the other way around you would do the same.(I got them).....so rest peacefully man and know that it ain't over it's just beggining as you watch us all from above we realize you got your wings, we all trying to get ours. Much Love Bro....
November 03, 2011

One year ago today, Nov 2, 2010, I found out that my childhood friend, neighbor, brother had passed away. A year later, the disbelief is still here but knowing that he went before us to make sure things were in order until we meet again turns that disbelief into joy and happiness. RIP, my brother....Jonathan Rodgers, gone but never ever forgotten.

I cried uncontrollable the other day but you made me stop and open my eyes; that's when I saw a heart made of bubbles floating towards me. Thanks for stopping by and next time don't take so looooong. I will be waiting for you in my dreams I miss U !
October 27, 2011
Lisa, so sorry for your loss. Wishing you and your family comfort that only God can provide.
October 27, 2011
My heart felt condoles to you Lisa and your family upon the death of your dear beloved brother. May the Almighty God comfort you and carry you through this time of grieving.
October 27, 2011
Lisa, this is one time that I am truly lost for words, for I know that no word of mortal man can ease the pain you & your family feel right now. The words of Job strangely comes to mind: "For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me" (Job 3:25). But he also said: "He (God) knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I shall come out like gold" (Job 23:10). May HE who knows the end from the beginning, and who is perfect in all HIS dealings with us, comfort and sustain you and your family during this time of deep pain and sorrow. My prayers are with you and family.
October 27, 2011
My prayers are with you and your family. I know he was your best friend
October 27, 2011
Lisa, allow God to comfort you during this very difficult time. May the Lord give you a perfect peace like never before. I am praying for both you and your family. Be Blessed Lisa :-)
October 27, 2011

October 27, 2011
Lisa, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in a special way today. May the Holy Spirit bring overwhelming grace and comfort to you, your grandmother and the rest of your family today. BE ASSURED OF THIS ONE THING:

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms . . . (Deuteronomy 33:27)
October 27, 2011
????????????????????????? There are moments in life when you wish you could bring someone down from Heaven. Spend the day with them just one more time, give them one more hug, kiss them goodbye or hear their voice again. One more chance to say I LOVE YOU. Copy and paste in remembrance of someone who is not here. ??????????????????????????????????????
October 07, 2011
Just wanted to say that i miss You! And I feel myself getting anxious and all worked up Just as I did before your birthday as the anniversary approaches....... Not looking forward to NOV 2nd or Nov 8th.
October 05, 2011
The harsh reality of this thing is that:
I am never going to stop missing YOU
I am never going to get over loosing you
I am never going to be the same without you
I am never…………..
September 28, 2011
Gameover for once in my life I am mad because I didnt get my way because if I had my way u my dad my brother and other nephews would b here with us. Now we have to come to ur new house. Cant wait to c u guys, Love u. Take care of the family until we meet again.
September 08, 2011
People who knew of us…… Know that I lost a Brother but people who knew us…… know that I lost SOOOoooooooo much more than that.
July 13, 2011
Jonathan there isnt a day that dont go by that I am not crying about u and my dad and other family members. U can believe in ur heart that u r not forgotten by many people. U r just that type of guy that cant b forgotten. I love u so much. Our family now participates w things that Dice Down have and ur presence is always there.U touched so many lives. U r such a loved and strong person. Tell my dad Carter Renz and Dick that they r truely loved and missed as well. We will meet again. Love u.
May 20, 2011
I AM MAD AT YOU. I am mad at you because you were always there for me to lean on and now when I lean I fall. I am mad at you because you took on the job looking out for me my whole life and you quit before the job was complete. I am made at you for not taking me with you or at least letting me go first.
April 11, 2011
During prayer @ church on Friday I saw an image. I was struggling to walk and I could barely breathe because I was carrying you on my back. Your legs were dragging on the ground and your arms were wrapped tightly around my neck and every step I took was very difficult. God reached down and attempted to take you off my back and I started to protest, yelling and screaming at Him. I pulled and then he pulled and it turned into a tug of war. I told God “I can carry him just leave him on my back, I got it, I can do it.” Then God said “HE IS BETTER OFF IN MY HANDS THAN YOURS”. AND you know me I begged him to leave there for a little while longer so that I look out for you…….and He did.
April 05, 2011
It's taken me all this time to think
of what i needed to say other than
You meant so much to all of us
you were special and that's no lie
you brightened up the darkest day
and even the grayest sky

Many tears I have seen and cried
They have all poured out like rain
I know that you are happy now
Cause your no longer in pain.

for years on I'll remember you
And what you used to say
You made each of us smile
And live to the fullest each day

They say in time it gets easier
I believe this isn’t true
Because even after all this time
I still don’t have a clue

I didn't get to say goodbye
So on this day I remember you
I take a second look

Our friendship is forever
Until death, did we part
Although your away physically
You’re always in my thoughts
my brother I really miss you
sitting here thinking about how
life can give us all a rude wake
up call when god calls one of his precious angels home to rest. wishing
we all could have you here with us i'm sure we will hang out again like old times. See you again MUCH LOVE Homie.
March 24, 2011
There isnt a day that dont go by that I dont think about u. I carry u everywhere I go especially in my heart. I love u.
March 24, 2011
Missing u more and more.

Jon'than: thats what we called you as Arnez mentioned at your home-going service! WOW! You were & still are such a great man! Im glad that you are in the arms of GOD! He knew what he was doing. We didn't but he did! I thank GOD, that although we were'nt close you still had a very special place in my life! It felt so awkard that you were not on your bike and hanging with your friends,When we were at the REPASE! Seriously,I couldnt believe it, I kept saying he shouldn't have been laying done he needs to be on his bike going somewhere! It was an honor to minister at your service,at first I let fear rise up on the inside of me, but after I LET GO & LET GOD, I felt so at ease! I just thank GOD for such a person you are to be in such a family as ours! I cannot wait to see you in HEAVEN! I know you are having a BLAST & I can't wait to be having a BLAST with you! I love you!God Bless our FAMILY: Auntie Cord I love you, Lisa I love you TWIN! and of course STEVE, man I love you! Don't take this love for GRANTED since GOD is LOVE, I know I have the LOVE of CHRIST, and Im spreading it to you'll and our family! Be STRONG! :)
November 11, 2010
CeCe, Lisa and Steve. We were saddened to hear of Jonathan's passing but are praying that he is in a much better place. May God strengthen your hearts and allow you to reflect on precious memories of his life here until you join him in our Father's Kingdom.
November 11, 2010
Family right now I know that you are hurting but, just remember that even when it hurts,"God is still Good". Jesus said, Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.Matthew 5:4
November 10, 2010
TO THE FAMILY OF JONATHAN, YOU ALL ARE IN MY PRAYERS.
November 10, 2010
I know right now your hearts only feel the loss, but keep it in your thoughts that God does not make mistakes and trust that he has a better plan in store for Jonathan. And the comfort that God will provide for you if you pray will be more than enough, to help you through.
November 09, 2010
Jonathan, my brother in heaven, i miss you already bro! You left too soon man, so much life left in you with so much love to give. They say the good die young and now I truly know this to be. I can't even begin to express my feelings of emptiness since you left. You changed the world with your kindness and giving heart. To me, you're a bigger man than you ever dreamed to be bro, then again, you always were. i know you're in heaven now with God and your family feeling no more pain, and that brings me comfort. I love you bro, keep them wheelies high in the skies. I'll see you on the other side.
November 09, 2010
To Aunt Myrine,CeCe, Lisa and the entire Rodgers Family, may the Lord bless you & keep you all. Jonathan has gone to a better place. You may not believe it now. But God has a better plan for him, so he called him home to work with him, in the community of heaven. God bless you & we will keep you all in our prayers.
November 09, 2010
Aunt Myrine,Cord,Lisa,Steve and the entire Rodgers family. May the Lord comfort you and release the pain that pierces your heart. May He hold you in His arms and rock you as you shed your tears. We love you so very much and we miss you.

To the family: I am sadden at the loss of Jonathan. He had a beautiful spirit and would always somehow make me laugh!! I remember him being my wonderful partner in my sister's (Stephanie Elliott-Corley's) wedding to his best friend Daryl Corley. We had shared some fun moments together. His life has left us with a void! May God continue to comfort you and strengthen you in this hour of need. Good bless and keep you! :)
November 08, 2010
You will be missed. God has called you. Our thoughts and Prayers go out to the Family.
November 08, 2010
Rodgers Family; We are so sorry to learn of the loss of your dear loved one Jonathan. Certainly, there will be an empty chair at the holiday table this year & years to come, but it will be filled with loving memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
November 08, 2010
Johnathan was alway a great friend to me, I knew if i ever need anything I could always count on him. Everytime I would break something on my bike, which was all time, all I had to do was call "Gameover" and he would be there to fix it! I am going to truly miss him with all my heart. My thoughs and prayers go out to his family.
November 08, 2010
Ms. Cordy and family, The loss of Jonathan was a great blow to us all at AlliedBarton, but the goodness of his heart will forever live in us all. Jonathan was a caring and giving man, who gave of himself willingly, and we are less off without him.
November 08, 2010
Let not your hearts be troubled... Jesus has prepared a place for us all. LISa, you are so precious to me and I really hate that I cannot be there. I pray that the peace of God will overwhelm you and your family.
November 08, 2010
Jonathan you have made such a great impact in all of our lives. And I am certain that you will remain to do so. With your lectures to the girls as they went off to college and prepare for college, from helping with college aps. to what you need in your dorms,they will always hold that dear to their hearts. Tate will remember his first motorcycle was given to him by his uncle Jonathan. And the rest of us will remember all the fun times and not so fun times together. Our thoughts and Prayers are with your Mom, Lisa and Steve. We Love You.
November 08, 2010
To Lisa and Family: I am deeply sorry about your loss, but may the God of all wisdom and comfort continue to support you in your days ahead.

JONATHAN'S TRIBUTE:
Our paths crossed may be once or twice, but your sister's heart reflected your. She shared your life, and you shared hers. God has called you to your rest, but the oneness your spirit and Lisa's lives on in oneness with the Spirit of Christ. Sweet be thy rest, Jonathan.
November 08, 2010
Ms Cordy and family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
And may God bless you always.
November 08, 2010
To Lisa and family, my prayers go out to you and I am sorry for your loss. May Jonathan rest in peace.
November 07, 2010
To Lisa and family, I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers go out to you and the family.
November 07, 2010
Ms. Cordy and family, I was deeply saddened to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I met Jonathan while at IU. He was very kind and respectful. Always smiling. After college, it was always a pleasure to see him whenever I would visit my grandmother who lived right across the street on Illinois. I am thankful for having known him. He will truly be missed. May you take comfort in knowing an angel is watching over you.
November 07, 2010
Jonathan I always looked up to you and the things you did, I appreciated you giveing me my first stereo system that mad my dad bang on the basement floor all day (lol) thank you for the advice and help with real life situations you are loved and will be missed
November 07, 2010
To Jonathan's family: We are so sorry for your loss. Jonathan was a great man and will be truly missed. Our best memories of him were when we lived next door on Illinois street and hung out until the wee hours of the night playing spades and barbeques. He was always so kind to our children. Victoria remembers how he used to defend her saying, "Victoria's not bad; she's just misunderstood". LOL! Although we may not have been in touch with eachother for the past couple of years very much, we never forgot you and never will! God Bless!
November 07, 2010
To Lisa and family. My prayers are with you all. God has taken back his angel and left a void here on earth. You are all in my prayers. God Bless!
November 07, 2010
To the family: many good memories we've shared with Jonathan, growing up. Seems like yesterday when we all were in high school and life was simple....those memories we will hold dear & cherish. We know that when God calls, we all must and will answer. We know that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. We pray for you all, knowing there will be a void in your lives. We pray that God comfort you and that watch over you as you go forward.
November 07, 2010
For Cordelia and the Rodgers Family, Scripture states that absence from the body means presence with the Lord. Our prayers are endless, during this season and always.
November 07, 2010
Jonathan there is so much that I want to thank u for. If I had all the time in the world to thank u it still isnt enough time. U being gone is really hard for me to accept but I feel comfort in knowing that God had greater plans for u. U r in heaven because u earned all ur gold points and in Gods sight he was really pleased with u and the work u done here on earth. U put smiles on faces that were crying u turned frowns into smiles and we arent even going to talk about ur sense of humor. I remember when u made me a drink that u knew I couldnt handle and u gave it to me with instructions and it still didnt work and u laughed at me. Later on I laughed all because u did it. U will never be replaced and ur love will always remain with us. I see u smiling down on us. C u soon Jonathan.
November 07, 2010
Cordy, my thoughts and prays go out to you in your time of sorrow.I'm so sorry for your loss... Love ya Teri Barrett

To Jonathans entire family, everything Jonathan did was big. He had the biggest afro at one time, he always had the best gadgets before everybody. He went and became a member of the toughest branch of the military, he had the toughest dogs on the westside, and he had the biggest heart of anybody I knew. He was a faithful friend, loyal Brother to his siblings and cousins, and he loved his Mother unconditonally. My friend you did it well, rest in peace.
November 07, 2010
God Bless and may Jonathan Rest in Peace.Lisa, my old friend, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
November 07, 2010
Lisa, Cordy and the entire family, you have my prayers and sympathy. I remember how all of us growing up having fun playing on both streets, Edison and Albert. Next thing we see is Jonathan and his two dogs he sure loved animals. He always had our back especially his sister Lisa. I know this is a diffulcult time, but remember God is with you all to comfort you in your time of grief. God bless you all.
November 07, 2010

I am also grateful that God allowed us to have u 45 years w us. those were some very memorable years. not only did u touch our lives but the lives of many others across many miles and even countries. U are one in a million and I am so proud to have u as my nephew. I will always hear u saying to me What did u break on ur car now One Watt.

I JUST WANTED TO SAY JONATHAN, WAS A VERY GOOD MAN AND WELL RESPECTED, I WILL MISS OUR PANCAKES AND LUNCH DATED, AND OUR LONG PHONE CALLS! HE WAS MY FRIEND AND ONE OF MY BABY GODFATHERS, HE WILL BE TRUELY MISSED AND ALWAYS LOVED!!! UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN!!!
November 06, 2010
Jonathan you will be missed by so many because of the person you were. You have always been there when I needed you, Jada needed you, or when Aaron needed you. To hear that you were gone seems so sureal, I keep waiting to get a call or text from you asking about Jada and "where's my candy, money and cheesecake?" We spent time with you just a week ago and talked about the future and your plans, things seemed so good for you. I know you have been through alot these last few years and I always prayed things would turn around for you. When you got your Ducati, the bike you wanted for so long, I was so happy for you. Happy that you could do what you enjoyed so much, to be on the road with the guys, Aaron was hoping to "get the boys back together again". You were like a big brother to me, I knew you would be there and you showed that love to anyone who needed it. To Aaron you were not only a cousin, you were his bestfriend, brother, and father figure, your words and advise were so improtant to him. When you would be sick and not feeling well and you seen Jada, your whole demeaner would change, she and China, convict #1 and #2! She will always have a Reese for you. It hurts so much to know we won't hear those jokes and smart comments. To not cry when we think about you or talk about you is hard. I want to celebrate the time I had with you and for getting to know you. Please watch over us all and give Cord, Lisa, and Steve strength to get thru this time, you meant the world to us all! We love you!
November 06, 2010
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
November 06, 2010

Darlene ,Cindy ,and the whole Rodger family It grieves me to know the pain that you must feel at this time. In my time of need I referred to the 23rd Psalms. It may seem as little comfort at this time, however, our Father (GOD) watches over us all and he knows best. His son Jonathan, your son (CEE CEE) Is no longer in pain. Even thou I am not their Cindy , and Darlene my prayers are! May GOD BLESS.

To Lisa and the Whole Family,

My family sends all of our prayers and love to all of you. I still cannot believe that my friend, my brother is gone. I have so many great memories of growing up with Jonathan and the family on Edison. If we weren't at his house, we were at mine. Back then we were together all the time. I will never forget him always having my back no matter the situation and if we couldn't handle it, his 2 four-legged body guards were just a whistle away. I always tell people to this day how he would whistle from a couple or so blocks away and a few seconds later here comes not 1 but 2 German Shepards. We even joined the Marines together as part of the buddy program w/Larry Mitchell but due to paperwork problems I ended up in the Air Force instead but Jonathan always kept in contact with me wherever we were. When he got out and started college in VA, he would send me tapes and packages to Korea making sure that I had whatever I needed while overseas. He was truly more than a friend to me even though we were miles and sometime countries apart, he was more like my brother. And like a true brother he played many a joke on me too. I am truly going to miss him but I know that he is in a much better place and he is watching over all of us. RIP my brother until I see you again.

Lisa And Family,
My heart goes out the whole family. I remember Jonathan as being a very kind & humble man. May he rest in peace and you smile when you think about the good times.

To the family of Jonathan, my deepest and sincere condolences I send to you from Michigan City, In. My name is Tracy Lipscomb, or Spacey as Jonathan would say when he called. We were schoolmates at Indiana University each of us joining our greek-letter organizations about a year apart. Jonathan truly loved his fraternity and the brothers that wear the letters. He was one of the kindest men that i have ever known. I thank God for the memories of times shared in Bloomington, him taking me out for my 21st birthday, and his just being a wonderful friend. He is truly missed.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Lisa, I will give you a big hug when I see you.

Words cannot express the pain and sorrow that im feeling. To know that I will never see you again. If I would have known that november 2nd would be your last day on earth I would not have let you drop me off at home. Seeing you the same day you died really hurts. Seeing our family mourning didn't make it any better. I wish we had more time together. I still had some questions for you, and I know you had answers fot me. I remember when you were in college your mom and me went to bloomington to see you. You had the biggest fish tank i had ever seen with two of the biggest fish I've ever seen. And ever since then I been in love with oscars. You never got a chance to see mine. We just talked about that lasr week. We have talked alot over these past few weeks. I enjoyed the time we spent together. I learned so much from you. And I know there is alot more that you could teach me. Getting that call that you were gone didn't seem real. When I got to the emergency room reality set in. Seeing auntie cord, lisa, aunt darlene, auntie a, lil cindy, big cindy, granny, my grandmother all crying tore me up. And all I could think about is seeing your face and how we were talking earlier that day. If it wasn't for you I wouldn't have got out of bed. I got up out of bed to do you a favor because you have done alot for me and i feel like i owe you. If i needed anything if you coulf help me out you would. You would help anyone that needed help. You were very generous, and I am very grateful to you. God is going to reward you for the kind things you did for people. When iItold crissie that you passed she broke down and cried. You had an impact on her to. She is also grateful to you. These past couple days all I could do is think about you and our family. I know you are in heaven now watching us. Keep an eye on your mom, lisa, steve, and granny cause they are the ones affeted the most by your passing. Watch over all of us your family and friends. You have some of the most loyal friends that i've ever seen. They are contrbuting to help with your arrangements as much as they possibly can. I want to say thank you to all of them. I will never forget you. I will try my hardest to make sure no one will. You had a big impact on my life and i thank you fot that. If you ever did me a favor and I didn't say thank you i am saying it now thank you. I'm not going to mourn your death. I am going to celebrate your life. I love you and i'm going to miss you big cuz.
