Jon, I still feel like it was just yesterday when I heard the news! I woke up crying that day and had no idea why until I found out! I've never been touched by anyone like u touched me! U were my inspiration and my reason for smiling! I got a tattoo in memory of you because even if I tried I don't ever want to forget a memory of u and I want every person in my future to know who you are! I visit u sometimes and spend "quality time" with u! I wish u were here to give me one of those comforting hugs and say " what am I gunna do with u Nikki?" U will be FOREVER loved and missed!xoxo

Hey Jon. I was watching something on tv and for some reason, it just made me want to say hi to you. This is the closest I can get, I suppose. I know we never met in person (the world is so small thanks to the internet!), but you were always one great guy. Awesome to talk too, even if your CAPS LOCK KEY was on all of the time. I hope you enjoyed your time here, and you're doing okay wherever you are now.

Hey yo B!!!! I sure do miss ya but I smile when I think of all the good times your having watching all of us. I never would have guessed how much you would impact my life but lookin back I can see how you transformed all of us. Thanks for helping us grow up. Cause if you would have asked me last year what we'd be doing now I couldn't have given an answer to any of it. Things are just so different. I love ya like a fat kid loves cake. Ernie

A joy is what you were to all those whom had the pleasure to know you. No matter how down or bad our day was you could walk into the room and just brighten our moods. I see your smile still yet and hear your sweet voice. Dear young Jonathan you have blessed so many by just listening and being a true friend. Some people pass and are soon forgotten but you dear one, the true spirit of your love lives on through many. I could only wish you had more time to teach those of your age how to be of such a kind heart. You had such a personality that never met a stranger. You are truly one of Gods blessed angels. Look down on us dear one and know that we feel you in our hearts always.

Uncle Jonathan,
I love you forever.
I miss you always.
I can't wait to see you again.
We all can't wait to see you again.
I don't unerstand it.
I thought being sixteen was supposed to be one of the best years of my life.
I guess not.
It's not your fault, though.
I live my life like you want me to.
I love you now, always, forever, and a day.
Your munchkin, niece, and love of your life...

I am saddened to hear the news. Jon was a great friend. A great guy all around. We use to have so much fun at school just goofing around all the time. I miss those days.

Jon you are missed by everyone who ever had the opportunity to meet you. Your memory will never be forgotten.

Jonathan's smile was infectious; I know you've heard it before but when it's true it's true! He would always find the time to pop in and say hello, fill us in on what he's been up to and put a little sunshine in our day. May the memories you have take you and help heal you; may you also find much happiness in those memories as time goes by. Keep his love alive and tell stories of him often. We will forever remember Jonathan Davis!

Everytime I saw Jon he always had a smile on his face. He always had a way of making me smile. I feel as though I am blessed to have known Jon for the short time he was here. He touched so many lives. He will continue on in my memories and will never be forgotten. My sympathy goes to your family and loved ones who have saddened by this.
I'll see you again, until then I will miss you!

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 you....in 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 going.....you're coming here to me.

To The Davis Family,

Words canot express my deepest condolences. Although I did not know Jonathan I knew him through Nate's stories and the sparkle in Nate's eyes when he spoke of him. Jonathan had an adventurous spirit, an individual unafraid to step up to the plate and support his country anyway he could. This speaks loudly of his character. He was a son every parent would be proud of. God bless you during this sorrowful time, and may Our Lord provide you peace and comfort only he can give.

Jon was one of my favorite students! He kept in touch even after he finished Spanish 1 in his Junior year. Even though he had already graduated, when I turned 40, he returned with two friends and wrote "Happy Birthday Oldie" in black cups on the fence at CBHS! I still have the Teddy Bear he gave me. My family was always happy to see him around town, at the fair, and even at Starbucks. I will really miss his smile. He told me I was like a second mom to him. I am so sorry to hear of this terrible loss. May God give us the strength we need to get through this together.

Michelle and family,

Ever since I heard about the lost of your son, I've been deeply saddened. I've never met Jonathan, but based on the things I've heard, I can only believe that he was well loved by his family, friends and coworkers. I wish there was something I could do or say to help make sense of it all, but I can't. I just want you to know that you are loved and our prayers are with you and your family. We care!

He was the sweetest person I've ever known. My prayers go out to all his Family and Friends. It won't be the same around here without Jon but I know your watching over us from up above. Always Love You, Never Forget You. Till we meet again on the other side.
