There are memories of Jonathan sprinkled throughout my childhood. Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, co-op, hanging with my brothers, arm wrestling, and rollerblading through Post Falls with Clara and his sisters. And then there was the time he bleached his hair- which made him visible from a mile a way at Silverwood.
This morning Jonathan Matthew Franco died. Headed to Canada on his motorcycle to enjoy the last day of summer, or so his facebook page said.
In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.
