Floyd and Coleen and family – We can only imagine how you are feeling at this time and want to let you know that my thoughts and prayer are with you as you go through this valley in the days ahead. I never knew Jason personally but many times in my walking past Alva’s and Louise i would see him and his brother playing around. If he was near the road he would smile and say hi. I am sure he will be missed by everyone who knew him. May God bless you at this time and in the days ahead.

For Jason’s immediate and extended family,
I was so saddened to hear of Jason’s accident. His smiling face in my room and the way he use to aggravate us will be forever missed. I thought the world of Jason and although tragic, I find comfort in the fact that he did not suffer and that he was doing what he loved with his “three amigos.” Jason, I know you’re at peace now and smiling down on all of us with that infectious smile. To your family and friends, take solace in the fact that your love and memories of Jason will live forever in all of our hearts. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time.

Dear Colleen and Floyd, and all of Jason’s family…….
There are no words to take away your pain, no words to make everything better. I cannot imagine how you are dealing with what has happened. I wish I could say something to help but I know I can’t. But I hope just knowing you have friends you can lean on will comfort you in some tiny way.
These are special words my best friend sent me once when I needed them…..
I hope that eventually they will help you too.
“What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.”
You were so blessed to have had Jason in your lives…… how wonderful it was for you to have had him for 15 years, then never to have had him at all.
I am thinking of you all with much love and prayers. And Colleen, please remember…..I am only ever a phone call away.
Jackie Weagle & Robert Rhodenizer
Colleen, Floyd and Family:
Sorry to hear about your beloved son. Please accept our sincerest condolences. I have never lost a child, but I do know from personal experience what it is like to lose a brother.

Colleen, Floyd and Family,
Sending you strength during these very difficult days. Colleen, as a childhood friend, we shared so many great times and smiles together. You always had a way to make me smile during the darkest days and it is apparent that Jason was the same as you. He cherished his friends and family and brought many smiles to faces during his short time. He will continue to smile down upon you and all of his friends. Take comfort in the many memories he has left with you and smile on his reflection.
Judy von Wahl
Floyd, Colleen and family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. As a mother I can’t imagine the pain you are going through. My daughter Shelby was in Jason’s class, she loved how he could always make anybody smile no matter how they were feeling. May God be with you during this difficult time.
Donald and Anna Conway and Family.
We are so sorry for your loss Colleen, Floyd, Pennie, Theodore and Nicholas. We cannot always be there to protect our children, accidents are beyond our control.

Our deepest condolences go to all of you.
My sympathy goes out to the rest of my family and his close friends. Even though he was a second cousin, he was just like a little brother. We did so many things together and have so many memories that I’m going to hold so close to my heart and never let any of them go. I’m really going to miss seeing his beautiful eyes and smile, especially when we’re out horsing around and riding our horses together.
You’re forever in my heart.

Our thoughts go out to the Weare Family. We met Jason at the Caledonia Exhibition and were touched by him and how much he enjoyed his horse. It was with pleasure that we helped him go into the best dressed harness class and knew how much he enjoyed it. I know how many special memories he has created and will always be remembered.
Rachel & Laurie Joudrey
Floyd, Colleen & All Family : I can not even begin to imagine the pain your are feeling from the loss of a child. My heart breaks to hear such a tragedy especially of a child, but know that you have a great support in the family and community, I for one will be here at anytime day or night. Take Care of yourselfs and take advantage of your support it will help.. Thinking of you all at this time Xoxo
Melvin and Jennifer Carver
Colleen,Floyd and Family; Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your entire family during this sad time. Everything Melvin and I have heard these last few days have been how Jason brought a smile to all, Floyd and Colleen this is something you should be so proud of. We will be thinking of you always. Stay close to each other during these next few days.
To Floyd, Colleen and the Weare Family,
My heart goes out to you and the family. I can’t imagine the depth of your pain and sorrow for the loss of your son and loved one. Jason was a mischievous boy with a good sense of humor. We enjoyed a little teasing of each other in the hallways of North Queens School. One of my students in the grade one two class said the words that express how many of us feel, “I will take a picture of him in my head and put it in the pocket of my heart.” Jason will be missed, but will be remembered by many.
Darren & Joanne Cameron
Theodore & Family. Thinking of you at this time.If there is anything we can do please call .Take care.Our thoughts and prayers are with you

My heart breaks for the loss of such a young child. The pain you are feeling must be totally unbearable. It is never easy to loose a loved one and too loose one at such a young age. I am at a lose for words. I am sending you my thoughts and prayers all the way from Ontario. During the next couple of days they will be very hard for you. But as you say “Till we meet again” Look around and you will see you have a wonderful support system. Deepest condolences to you and your family during the very difficult time.

I’m Lost for Words.. My Heart aches for you all.
Sometimes Life is just So Unfair.
..Jason was So full of life & although he only got to enjoy it for such a short time,I would have to say,he tried living it to the Fullest!
We Knew Jason as a loving & kind spirited person,Who would go out of his way to help if in any way he could. He was a very Hard worker,& often made it known!
We Certainaly enjoyed him,wether it was just a quick hello on his passing or a yarn about things he loved to do.
Jason always had a Smile on his face & because it was Contageous,he could easily put one right back on yours.
Jase,I know your Spirit is In Heaven,but your
Presence will always be in Our Hearts..
You sure Will be Deeply Missed!!!
Rest In Peace Little Buddy

He had a contagious laugh that made people smile when they were on the edge of breaking down into a million tears. He will be miss very much, by so many people. But just remember he will always be in our hearts and watching over us helping us through our days.
There are no words to express how bad I feel for you all.I cant imagine the pain you feel.I hope that knowing you have the support of your family and the community will help you get through this.He was a precious child that left us too soon but left such great memories in peoples hearts.xoxo

Tanya Kinner (Carver)
Dear Floyd, Colleen and the Weare Family,
I was so sorry to hear about your loss. It is never easy to lose someone we love but especially more difficult when they are so young. Please take comfort and peace in knowing that even though it may not seem like it, the Lord’s hand is in all things. Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. I know that as you turn to Him, he will give you comfort and peace and that you will see Jason again. Our families prayers are with you and wish we could be there in person.
Gerald H Selig
I was very shocked and sorry to hear. I met him this summer while raking blueberries. We would ask each other “How many buckets do you have now” I worked my tail off, and he was always ahead. I couldn’t keep up with him; he was a hard working kid. I didn’t know him well, but from my first impression he was a good kid, respectful and mature. My deepest empathy to you all!
Frank,Janet Merry- Smith and Nina Merry
So very sorry to hear of the loss of your son Jason. Our prayers and thoughts go out to you and all the Family.
