Deepest Sympathies From The U9 Girls Mustang Miracles
As the team manager of the U9 Girls Mustang Miracles, I wanted to convey the enormous sense of devastation we all feel for Jonathan and his family and friends. The moment I heard the tragic news, I immediately emailed my team. I asked for donations on behalf of our team...it was the very least we could all do...and there was no hesitation whatsoever. Our entire team wore commemorative stickers on their jerseys during their next game in honor of this amazing boy who so loved the game of soccer. To score a goal as a defender, and to have his family see it is an incredible, yet bittersweet image that we will all carry with us for the rest of our lives. The pictures of Jonathan, and the description of him desperately clinging to his jersey is beyond heartbreaking. Please know that we are all grieving...as parents, as sons, as daughters, and as a community. Jonathan will always be in our hearts and in our prayers. I cannot begin to fathom the immense sense of loss and grief that his friends and family are experiencing right now. Please know that the U9 Girls Mustang Miracles and their families all send their deepest love and sympathy at this extremely difficult time. Jonathan will always be missed and will NEVER be forgotten.
