Dear Karen, My heart hurts for you. I'm so sorry to hear of Jason's passing. He was one very special son & you such a wonderful loving mother to him. I'm happy I got to meet him & see how he made you smile. He was one strong man & fought the beast so gallantly till the end. May he rest in peace in the arms of our Lord & mow & trim the lawns within the pearly gates. Much love & hugs to you & your family.

Jason was one of the best men I've ever had the pleasure of knowing and I was honoured to know him. There's no place I would have rather been these last few months than with Jason, Carrie and his family and I'm so blessed to have called him my friend. My sincere condolences to Carrie, Julie, Kristina, Jacob, Melody, Karen and the rest of your family. Rest in peace my dear friend and I'll see you soon. Xoxo 💜

I felt like I knew you from your twin sister, Julie. You’re so special to her and she loves you unconditionally. All she talks about is you and your nephew, Jacob lol. I wish we could of met one day. No more pain and you’re in a much better place. Prayers to Julie & the family. Love you much forever and always Julie. RIP Jason!
