Corinthians 4:17-18 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. No words can take this pain away for your family, not today, not tomorrow. My heart hurts so much for yall...but may the Holy Spirit guide you, comfort you and protect you all now and in years to come. May he show you peace above all. Peace Jonathan is now experiencing.

The Edwards Family, Savannah , GA

My condolences to the family. May you find comfort in the scripture at Revelation 21:4.

Niecy, jw.org,

Tami, Louise, Peyton, Drake, Marshal and family and loved ones of Jonathan. I cant begin to imagine the pain you are experiencing during this awful time in your life. We are praying for the strength to cope. I had the pleasure of knowing Jonathan since he was a little boy in diapers. My parents and his parents were close friends, so we were always hanging out with the Water's. Jonathan was the sweetest, cutest little boy ever! I later learned that Jonathan married a good friend of mine, Tami. We were all really close friends and enjoyed hanging out together. I will cherish the memories that were made with Jonathan. May he Rest in Heaven!
