I blog about my grandson Jonathan every year, either on the date he was born or the
date we lost him. This year my old malfunctioning computer (which we
ended up trashing), and then a new computer (which had to have a brand
new mother board and a visit from the computer repairman) kept me from blogging. I was able to put something about Jonathan on Facebook, but I
keep notebooks with all my blog posts in them to re-read when I get really old and have nothing to do. Just a fleeting glance at
a Facebook post about my grandson just wasn't enough for me. I was so frustrated. Thank goodness the computer
problems are fixed, at least for now.
January 13, 2016 marked the 10th anniversary of the day our grandson Jonathan Stephen Joseph
entered the kingdom of heaven. He was two years and 17 days old when
arterial venus malformation of the brain killed this precious child. We
still remember Jonathan--remember how wonderful those small arms felt
when they wrapped around our necks as we snuggled him, how he loved (and
was loved by) his parents and his five older siblings, how much he enjoyed riding
in his granddaddy's truck, and playing in Smith Mountain Lake.

Jonathan, we still love and miss you, and we always will.
