Perhaps him and Jared are together now . My thoughts and prayers are with your family. You are now at peace. 😢🙏🙏🙏

    We are so very sorry to hear of Jamie's passing. When we were neighbors, Jamie was always so welcoming to Jonah, who was very taken with Jamie's race car and the fact that he worked at Good Year. I'm sure he asked way too many questions at time and his shenanigans wore on him, but he never let on.
    He'll be remembered very fondly by us both, Angela and Jonah Perrin

You are loved by all who you have surrounded yourself with. We are all blessed to have had you as a friend, brother, father, god father, son, husband, cousin and uncle. When you have a drink with John.. please have a rye for me with you dad. I miss you both. Never forgotten. Love you.
