Comments: I still continue to babysit Paul and baby Joey.
When your young baysitting is the best way to make money, so that is what I did.I babsat Jonathon and Paul for four years and was extremely excited when they had another brother on the way. The summer before my senior year I was babysitting a normal thing for this summer considering that was my job. My grandmother had to work that day so I took the three kids to town so that we could have lunch and do a little shopping.On our way home we crested a hill and in our lane someone was passing. The girl that was passing did not have enough time to get back over to her lane and we hit head-on!! I woke up and my grandma tried to get her to wake up. I heard the baby crying so I tried to get out of the car, I had to climb over my grandma to get out. I got the baby and went to go get help. No one was there to help me, by the time I got back to the car Jonathon and Paul were passed out on the ground. I tried to get Jonathon to wake up but he would not. People were now arriving on the scene and they tried to help but they said that there was not much they could do. After we all arrived to the hospital I was asking everyone I talked to how the boys were doing! A doctor told me that Jonathon had died. A statement that I will never forget!! Jonathon was an Awesome person. He had a great heart and loved everyone. Jonathon was so smart it was weird that he was only eight but you could carry on an adult conversation with him. I will never forget Jonathon because he was one of the few in the world that had no hate for anyone. Jonathon will always be loved and missed by everyone that knew and loved him.Ed Note: A later re-visit of this issue is also available. Please see that March 2002 entry.
