    To my brother Jared,

    A year after you have left us your memory still remains and there isn’t one passing day that you aren’t thought of. I still think back about the many Saturday’s we spent hanging out at the mall and those Saturday evenings we spent either playing basketball at the school or football in the backyard. I think we may have even threw in a few games of wiffleball too. I recall Sunday’s spending time at the farm either jamming because your dad (Lyle) got new music equipment or filming another MacGyver movie which your brother (Justin) acted in, directed, produced, and wrote. I remember you always wanting to take on the dangerous roles. I think like most of us you probably forgot your lines a few times. I like telling the story of how you wiped out on the dirt bike cruising down the gravel road at the farm because you were trying to get fancy. Or how you dribbled the basketball off your head during a Prarie Rose game at Ben Franklin. I think you could be funny without having to try. I feel blessed to have known you this well to share these stories. I promise, there will be more stories shared because your memory will always be with us.

    Love you forever!

    horace ndHey there Bud,
    Thought I would drop a line to you and since you have always been on my mind everyday and in my heart always it just doesn’t seem real that you are not here to share everything that has been going on in the last 4 months and helping us pick out every thing for the house and so forth. We wish you were here with us every day in our life but you aren’t but you are in our hearts and we have many memories of you and at least those can’t be taken away and it is very painful to go through life without you and you not here in to share the father’s day, birthdays, holidays and etc. that is really hard to cope with. I wish you were here right now and we could be talking about all kinds of things like we used to do and boy I really miss those days and all the telephone calls that we shared everyday and Ihope that you are doing great and that you save a place for me where ever that might be and remember that I will never forget you and you will be with me forever and ever in my heart and soul. Remember that Dad and I love you with all of our hearts and Justin,Stacy,Hunter,Jersey and Jaime do as well!!!! You are missed each and every moment of the day. Take care Love you!!!

    To my brother Jared,

    I don’t think a day has passed in which you haven’t crossed my mind. I am reminded of the 20+ years of friendship we shared through many Friday and Saturday night gatherings. I remember playing football in the backyard every Saturday evening rain or snow. I remember the teams always being you & your dad (Lyle) versus Justin, Jaime, and myself. Of course, one might think the odds were against Lyle and Jared..but they were actually favorites to win every time. Why? Because Jared was BY FAR the best athlete on the field. Jared could be playing in full pads and still beat us. One more thing..Lyle was all-time QB, so it was actually the three of us versus Jared. Like I said, HE always won. I remember other times where we would jam either in the basement to cover songs or originals and Jared would play the bass every time. He enjoyed playing the acoustic much more, but always played what we needed [at that given time]. He was a very talented musician/song writer. I remember the many times we would hang out and he would pick up his guitar and start playing newly learned songs. It was usually Green Day. I remember late nights of playing video games on the Sega Genesis system–usually Sports Talking Baseball. And no, Jared never threw a game on purpose. He was always very competitive! I remember playing Madden with him one time and Jared was ahead 42-0 at halftime and WOULD NOT let me score even a field goal. He probably won 9 out of 10 times. I remember Jared part taking in our “MacGyver” moves which Justin and myself co-wrote together. We always made Jared be the “bad” guy because [to him] those roles carried much more action. I remember walking to the Horace store and Jared buying me candy because my money was forgotten at home. He was always willing to give. I remember getting a bloody nose and Jared running into the house to gather a towel for me. Jared was always VERY thoughtful and loyal to his family and friends. I MISS you and LOVE you!

    Jared, I miss you everyday, i cant believe you arent here anymore. I have SO MANY memories of you, of us. I first met you when I was 5, you and bobby you guys threw rocks at me and I kicked you! From then on we were friends we had alot of great times and some bad but in the end we were always best friends, you are and were the one and only person that knows everything about me. I couldnt have asked for a better friend than you, the kindred swimming pool, the bison football games,the nights we would wait for everyone to get out of conformation classes because we never went,the time we went to that motocross show and i got mad at you and you bought me a pink beenie, flowers on my birthday, presents at christmas, happy mother day wishes, our little road trips to places like fingal and nome, the endless talks we would have on my parents front porch, all the times you would come to see me and end up having LONG conversations with my dad and I had no idea what you guys were talking about, vans warped tour and all the crazy people we seen there, the time we went to the citites and you were so scared about my driving, the couple times you seen lauren and you would refer to yourself as uncle jared, I have 20 years worth of memories with you, and I wont ever forget one of them. The last time I seen you wasnt so long ago and my last words to you were I love you and I miss you, everyday im going to miss you, you taught me so many things and for that I thank you. I’ll never have another friend like you. Until later
