The Lord blessed us with the most precious child on Earth: Jonathan (his name means God's Gift). Jonathan was the most loving, Godly, and caring person that we have ever met. He was always helping and praying for everybody around him all the time. Jonathan always said he was not afraid of dying because he knew he was going to Heaven since he had received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. However, he wanted to know God's will for his life here on Earth first. He was a warrior like no other because he always tried to keep in mind that "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13). Even though our lives will not be the same anymore, we do know our lives will be better because he allowed the Lord to use him to teach us the real meaning of love and joy.
Memorials may be made to Ellerbe Hispanic Ministry, Ellerbe First Baptist Church, P. O. Box 8, Ellerbe, NC 28338.
Watson-King Funeral Home in Rockingham is in charge of the arrangements.
