...feel so badly for your family right now and what you are going through. May the Lord in HIs infinite mercy and wisdom grant unto you the sure knowledge that He loves you and your family. We are living through perilous times and children are greatly effected by what is happening around us. I'm sure those boys were very close.

I am so sorry to hear of this sad and preventable tragedy. I will keep Jonivan in my heart and thoughts. And the family as well. And I'm horrified that his brother is being charged as an adult. I will keep you all in my thoughts for a good outcome for the brother that is being held for this sad event. Nothing can bring Jonivan back, but he will ever be in my heart. Again, I'm so very sorry. My Condolences to all. Juli W. Springfield, Or.
