Corey (JB Squeak & Lex), Vicki & Torie..
I love all of you guys so much & you all know I loved Jordan as well always will. It's still unbelievable but Jordan is at peace now and when you all think of Jordan think of that smile and his sense of humor he wouldn't want anyone said not his family nor friends. Those who knew him had nothing but good memories with him Corey and Vicki you guys raised a phenomenal and respectful man who will be loved and missed by everyone. I'm here for you guys as I've always been , The best is yet to come. God promised he wouldn't put more on you than you can bare you must believe that and keep faith. Though you feel you have lost heaven has now gained and we have all gained an angel in Jordan. I love you all dearly !

I don't even know where to begin at. But I know for sure that Jordan was always a pleasure to be around. & it was my pleasure of knowing him. To Ms. Vicky this is something that I know is very hard for yu . A mother losing her child is beyond one of the hardest things in life to deal with. Not that I know personally but I could only imagine. I know that you and Jordan was very close because he always talked about you. & that was something I cherished about him. I'm not goin to tell you to cry because you have every right to but jus know that he is in a better place. With no more worries & at peace w/ himself and the lord. Jordan was like a lil brother to me and I will always look at him as so. I jus wanna let you know that the sun will shine again one day & when that day comes jordan will be smilin down on all of us tellin that he is okay & that if we close our eyes and listen we can hear the sound of his voice & wat he is tryin to tell us. As long as we keep him in our hearts he will always be with us . Keep your head up and try to smile. Thats wat Jordan would want us to do.

My deepest condolences goes out to you and your family & the long lasting list of friends.

Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,

The power, and the glory,

For ever and ever.

Miss you already Jordan. You were always so silly..always put a smile on everyone's faces. Me or Victoria could never get anything past you, lol. But that's why big brothers are there. You just wanted to keep us safe! Oh man it's gonna be a long road but we will get through it if you help us. And being the person you are, you will. Your life was not in vain. I just ask that you comfort your family and friends. I'm just so thankful for the time we had with you, but I'm really going to miss your smile!!!
Love u and I will see you again.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not're coming here to me.
