Jordan Jones Legacy - A Sister's Farewell
Post by Breanna Jones
Last week my brother Jordan left his physical body and became my guardian angel.
He didn't "lose" his battle with cancer because of the way he lived his life everyday. His body had cancer. His soul did not.
The day before he passed he told me that he was worried that people would think that he was a quitter. I ensured Jordan absolutely knew that he is the exact opposite. That he is the strongest and bravest person anyone could ever even imagine. And he fought harder than anyone. Did every last possible thing he could do. And that we know that he is in pain that is unimaginable. That's it's ok to leave his battered diseased body. That we didn't want him in pain anymore. Then he gave me the most memorable hug and "I love you". It was 24 hours later when his soul left his body.
I have been cherishing that moment since he's been gone. A few days ago my mom shared with me this picture she secretly took. I will forever cherish this moment and I'm so happy that I also have a picture to look at.
Even though it is so amazing to know that I have an angel, (he has already showed me several signs in only one week) I will dearly miss him everyday for the rest of my life. Seeing his face, hearing his voice, feeling his energy. Jordan was truly an exceptional person. Inherently a great person to the bone. Honest, loving, loyal, hard working, adventurous, positive....He really was good at everything he tried. He was the epitome of "keeping up with the Jones's". A stellar athlete. Jordan was an old soul. The way he would take interest in philosophy, mathematics, ancient history and make perfect sense of all of it was amazing to listen to. You would never guess that such wise words were coming from a 21 year old.
A huge part of who I am is from growing up with Jordan. We weren't like normal siblings. We truly loved each other and enjoyed being together. We learned from each other. We really almost never fought. I am blessed to have had such an amazing relationship with Jordan throughout our entire childhood thru to being young adults.
I will never understand why Jordan was taken from this earth so early. My only thought is "only the good die young".

I promise to never let your legacy fade. I love you more than anything in this world. Let your soul fly Jordan. Ill see you later Bud.
