Jon Ross, I can’t believe that tomorrow will be the 4th birthday I am spending without you. It still doesn’t (and will never) register to me that you are gone. And until my last breath, I will continue to call your cell phone on a weekly basis expecting you to answer. I miss you more than anything in the world and wish I could hug you, shoot some hoops with you and watch you throw your much-used Yankees hat across the room when the Jets/Nets/Yankees did something stupid one last time! To honor Jon, I ask that you do something nice for someone on our birthday tomorrow because that is what Jon was all about! He was the most selfless person I have ever known. Jon, I hope you eternally know that without you, I would not be the man I am. Keep shining on me, Jennifer Danielle Crumpton, Spencer Ross and your new niece, Skylar! I show her your picture all of the time and she smiles! I Love you J-Ro!! And finally, I have said it before: please hug someone you love today; or make that call that you keep meaning to make; tell the people around you that you love them! Life is sometimes painfully too short. Your last 4 words to me were: “I love you bro.” Your bro loves you too and misses you terribly.
