What can I say about Jon ;I remember his kind smile and willingness to help any and everyone. I also worked with him at AGH he was a compassionate, and giving nurse. I can remember him wearing his suspenders and chain dangling from his pocket. To Carolyn and the rest of the family I extend my sincerest condolences; Jon was a Class act and a wonderful friend.
