This is a moment we could never have contemplated happening – Jordan’s 35th birthday but without him here with us. Devasting doesn’t quite cut it, it’s unfathomable, unbelievable, heartbreaking. The sense of loss on this day will be immeasurable, it simply isn’t right. However, it is the reality of what, in our heads, we know to be true but in our hearts we can’t accept.
On Saturday, Julie, Danielle, Matt, Dylan and Samuel, Margaret (Nana), Charlotte, Laurence and I are meeting at Torrisholme Cemetery for some quiet time ‘with’ Jord. We’ll be tying some red balloons to a stake by his stone, with messages from each of us and taking some time to be as close to Jordan, in a physical sense, as we can be, as well as in an emotional and spiritual sense too of course.
This page though, has been created for you. We wanted to enable anyone who knew and loved Jordan to be able to celebrate his life by coming to this page and reading thoughts from his family and friends.
Although we realise you may well be having your own private reflection and perhaps raising a glass (or two) in Jord’s memory, we would love you to leave a comment – only if you wish to of course – below.
What are your happiest memories of your time with Jordan – maybe at Uni (thanks for these brilliant photos JC), at a previous birthday or some other time you spent with this incredible young man. We’d love to hear from you.
Happy Birthday Jordan, we’re missing you more, today than ever, and we send you all our love.
“When you walk through fields of poppies and see a rainbow touch the ground, know that this is my love guiding you to the peace that I have found” Taken from the words on Jord’s stone
