You've been gone nearly a year already and I still miss you more than words can say. It's always tough on the ones left behind even though I know you're in a much better place than we are! It's a comfort knowing you're still with us, although in a perfect world you would still be here happy, healthy and loved! I will forever miss you and love you with all my heart.
Your Sister, Deanne

My dear Jayson:
It was an honor & pleasure to have you as my special nephew!! You were so loving, caring, generous, funny, compassionate, etc. I wish you wouldn't have had to suffer so much in this lifetime but it helps me enormously to know you are without pain now & soaring with the eagles on the other side. I know without any doubt at all that you are constantly with all of us and watching and helping us on the other side. It was an honor to watch you grow over your short lifetime here on earth. There's not a day that you're not missed here. May you enjoy the greatest joys & happiness where you are now! Aunt Roxie

My heart is with you. Jayson was fun, couragous, giving, non assuming, and a pure delight. When I would see his name on the patient schedule for his eye examinations, I would get excited to get to talk to him, and share ideas. I will never forget his trademark smile, even when things were not so easy. He was one who could easily smile with his eyes, too. At our office, he will be missed, but never forgotten. May peace come soon, to replace the hurt in your heart. He had a lifetime of love for one so young.

Jayson you will be missed. You were such a wonderful person. You always made me laugh. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Rest in Peace buddy!

It is with heavy hearts we received the news of Jayson's passing. Although I didn't know him personally, Steve talked about him on a lot of occasions. His Dad told us of the tenacity Jayson had while waiting for a transplant. I couldn't even begin to comprehend what the family and friends are feeling now or in the future. We will be praying for the comfort only God can give at a time like this.

It is with great sadness to hear of Jayson's passing. He was a long time member of Maury County Fire Department and I had the honor of serving with him at Station 7. I remember talking to Jayson many times when I saw him at treatment and his positive attitude. He will be missed. My sympathy and prayers go out to his family.

I saw Mr. Collins Obituary in the Columbia Daily Herald although I did not know him I wanted to say how very sorry I am about his passing. I wish everyone could take time to think about organ donation. It saves so many lives. May God give your family peace and comfort during their terrible loss.
