    Like the wind God can be seen moving branches, billowing sails and scattering leaves but we do not always see His purpose. Many times we never know the reasons why but may you be comforted in knowing that Jared is safe with Him Whenever a breeze plays with your hair or a gust scatters leaves in a whirlwind like children in a schoolyard may you think of Jared’s smile and know he is safely home. My heart aches for you.



    My baby I love you so much. You made me so proud. I would give anything to have just one more minute with you. You are my sunshine, my world, my baby. You have made me happy since your first breathe and will continue to do so until my last breathe. I will miss you more than words can say. Love you around the world and back my angel. You are with Jesus now and I will see you again. Until then you will be with me in my heart. I love you my gentle giant.

    I am very shocked and sad by this news and I really thought you were really cool. I wish that I could have spent more time with you. School is never the same without you (especially math) and Mr. Mosc misses you so much as well. I never heard anyone call you Fligh High until Elizabeth just said that in the comment above. I wish you happiness and peace with God.

    I am so sorry for this devastating loss. Jared was a hard working student in my Spanish class at SMS, always participating, asking great questions, the type of student a teacher loves to have. He was a deep and thoughtful person, and often would stop and talk to me about something that interested him. I was so privileged to have known him. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. He was loved very much and will be sorely missed.

    I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Jerad the night I took Madison and her best friend Dominique to Scream Fest. I did want to let you know that he made quite an impression on Madison. She mentioned to me what a sweetheart he was and how he told her if there was anything she wanted that night he would buy it for her. I’m so happy that she was able to meet such a wonderful young man. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    God bless you

    Anne Paul and Madison Stewart.
