Kas and Family,
I remember Jordan as the most loving and caring young man. He loved his little brothers so very much and his sister. He loved his family and friends. He had a heart of gold. I remember babysitting this little fart along with his siblings. He is going to be missed by so many. When we moved away everytime we came to yankton Parker wanted to see Jordan which didn't t get to happen much. Parker will miss Jordan. Heaven has gained precious angel. We love you guys.
