My deepest sympathies to Jon's family. I met Jon when he was only 5 years old and lived in the New Brighton apartments. (My brother was a close friend of his.) We then moved to Maplewood and Little Canada and to a different school district. My brother became friends with him again when they moved to Maplewood. He made such an impression on me even as a little boy that I recognized him to be the same Jon from the apartments. He had a great sense of humor and a bright smile. He was at our house a lot in his high school years and I will always have fond memories of him. I haven't seen him for several years but he will always remain in my memories. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. May your memories comfort you and your faith help heal your broken hearts.

Kristi and Family,
Jon helped with spreading limestone on my path down to Lake Michigan from my house. He was so cheery and personable. My family was visiting that week from Southern Indiana, about 16 or 18 of them. I think your boys came too. Many of my family commented about Jon's work ethic at the time and warm personality not to mention his good looks and warm smile. They could hardly believe a team of men would come help bless me in such a wonderful way. And Jon did it in spades. I will always remember that day and his special enthusiasm. It was of the Lord.

Recently, a friend send this story about how God never makes a mistakes. I am sending it along to encourage you all as I have found it encouraging.


A king who did not believe in the goodness of God, had a slave who,

> >>> in all circumstances would always say, "My king, do not be
discouraged, because everything God does is perfect. He makes no
mistakes!"

One day, they went hunting and along the way a wild animal attacked the king. His slave managed to kill the animal, but could not prevent his majesty from losing a finger.

Furious and without showing his gratitude for being saved, the nobleman asked, "Is God good? If He was good, I would not have been attacked and lost my finger."

The slave replied: "My king, despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is good, and he knows why these things happened. What God does is perfect. He is never wrong!"Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his slave.

Later, the king left for another hunt, this time alone. He was captured by savages who engaged in human sacrifices.

On the altar and ready to sacrifice the nobleman, the savages discovered that their victim did not have one of his fingers. According to them, only a whole person with all his/her parts intact could be offered to the gods.The king without a finger was deemed an abominable sacrifice for their gods. So, they released the king.

Upon his return to the palace, the king authorized the release of his slave. He received the slave affectionately. "God was really good to me! I was almost killed by the wild men, but for lack of a single finger, I was let go! But I have a question: If God is so good, why did he allow me to put you in jail?"

The slave answered, "My king, if I had gone with you on this hunt, I would have been sacrificed instead because I have no missing finger. Remember, everything God does is perfect. He is never wrong. He made you keep me in jail so I would not be with you on the hunt."

Often we complain about life, and negative things that happen to us,
forgetting that nothing is random and that everything has a purpose.

Every morning, offer your day to God; don't be in a rush.

Ask God to inspire your thoughts, guide your actions, and ease your feelings. And do not be afraid. God is never wrong!

You know why this message is for you? I do not know, but God knows, because He never makes mistakes.
