Seeing the following conversation on a Facebook page, dedicated to remembering Jona, made me smile:
I never met Jona, but I’ve been telling everyone that he’s my friend. I can’t wait to meet him someday.
Several of Jona’s friends commented:
Jona would not have needed long to become your friend. He was a very friendly guy and would probably have introduced himself before you had a chance to!
Not to mention telling a blond joke!
And by the time you were leaving teasing you about something.
