  1. Very sorry for your loss! I am Johnathan’s cousin. My mom is Mary Wakeland, sister of Bill Wakeland .

  2. I am the oldest daugher of Michelle Coigny, sister to Jonathan Wakeland. My name is Teresa Victorino and Jon was my Uncle! We were only 6mos apart and very close growing up as little kids. Poem of Life: Life is but a stopping place, A pause in what’s to be a resting place along the road, to sweet eternity. We all have different journey’s, different paths along the way. We all were meant to learn some things, but never meant to say… Our destination is a place for greater than we know. For some the journey’s quicker…. For some the journey’s slow… and when the journey finally ends we’ll claim a great reward and find everlasting peace, “Together with the Lord”.

    I love you and will miss you uncle Jonathan, RIP my dear beloved Uncle!

  7. I am a second cousin to Nancy, Bill and Brenda. I live in Shelbyville. Even though I never met Johnathon my sympathies are with you all. Losing a family member when they are so young is always a very shocking experience. Prayers to you all…Debbie Holland Shoaff

  8. I am Johnathon’s Uncle Lloyd Wakeland. My prayers and sympathy are with mainly his children and immediate family. I know what it is to loose children, but God never said we would all live to be old and he takes the young for something special. Remember the memories in your heart and the time you spent with him. God Bless you all. Lloyd & June Wakeland

  9. I want to thank all of the people who knew and loved my brother. We will miss him. If, you know someone who struggles with an addiction you never stop loving them. I hope now he can be at peace and see the brother he missed growing up with.

  10. I am Dawn Renee (Brooks, Gee) Jonathan was my uncle but felt more like my nephew because I am nine years older, I loved him a lot, and I know that he knew it. He has stayed with me a few times in his life when visiting and stayed with my Mom, Nancy. I am having a very hard time finding words for our loss, I know that he had so many family members that loved him and he lived his life the way he wanted too. I’m sad that we didn’t have more time! I will cherish the few things that he gave me and I will continue to love and miss him as always! Love to all of you that are hurting just as my heart is breaking…….consider yourselves (((Hugged)))!! May God Bless him and all of us!!
