    Jordan, you were a true original! I always thought highly of you, you were so different from everyone else I know! I was proud to know you. You lived by your own set of rules, and made no apology for it! you knew living the way you did would have consequences, and you wished they didn’t but could not be anyone but yourself! That is never a mistake! I know you didn’t believe in god or that type thing, but I do believe you are wherever you were happiest in life.. you found where you loved to be the most, and get to be there, and happy forever, and all I have ever wanted for you is to be happy in yourself, your life, and your decisions. You have an amazing family, and I am glad I got to meet them, I just wish it were under better circumstances! the last two times I saw you was when u came to visit jtown, im glad you came, I had fun! and my birthday in fargo! Ill never forget you, your smile, or your philosophies!! be free my friend!
