  4. If We Could Bring You Back Again

    If we could bring you back again,
    For one more hour or day,
    We’d express all our unspoken love;
    We’d have countless things to say.

    If we could bring you back again,
    We’d say we treasured you,
    And that your presence in our lives
    Meant more than we ever knew.

    If we could bring you back again,
    To tell you what we should,
    You’d know how much we miss you now,
    And if we could, we would.

  5. Forever Young

    Trapped in the glorious years
    within the memory of belief, lost of all grief.
    Take the reasons,
    which once seemed so clear,
    but never mind, you have nothing to fear.
    For you my friend will be, forever young,
    Forever in the heart of memories.

    Lost in the glory of all time,
    the wisdom was there within that smile,
    You see you could have told us,
    there within lies the mystery.

    So shed a smile, and grin a tear,
    For you my friend, will be,
    Forever young, Forever young.
    Forever in the heart of memory,
    We see not through or misery.
    Forever young, forever young.
    There’s a new angel tonight.

  7. Bill, Donna- My sincerest condolences to you both and for your entire family. I know Jon will be deeply missed. Phillip Dworsky, Consolidated Container.

  8. I am so sorry for your loss and have been thinking of you/praying for you since I saw the article. You see, I have a 20-yr-old son who goes up north with friends to a cabin and rides a dirt bike, ATV, etc. In fact, that very same night, two of my son’s friends were at the cabin and had a dirt bike-go kart collision late at night, so your son’s death really hit home. I pray that time will ease your pain somewhat. Please know that people like me, who don’t even know you, care about you and are keeping your family in our prayers.

  9. I was awful sorry to hear about the loss of your son,as you know we know the feeling first hand. We try to think about the happy times and the funny things that happened. We remember the smile and the special laugh and that keeps us going, and the time we spent together at the cabin and the good times we had there. It hurts a little everytime I hear of a loss of a child that just was trying to have some fun, thinking about you.

  10. I am very sorry for your loss. Jon was a classmate of mine and a good man.

    Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

  11. My Dear Brother Bill, & Presiuos Sister-In-Law Donna,
    Our hearts go out to u & ur family, just lean on God to bring you through, He will be ur strength.
    We love you, thinking of you, & praying for you!!

    (Bill’s Sister & husband)

  12. Saying goodbye is never easy so I chose to say “Jon, I will see you later…” You have a very amazing son and his smile will forever live in our hearts. My sons and I will miss him endlessly but when we think of him, we smile and we talk of him we laugh. That is what made Cluffy, “cluffy” to us.

    We love you Cluffy and we will see you again when God decides it is our time to join you… until then “we will see you later…”

  14. Jonathan is my big brother, my best friend, my left arm. He will always be in my heart, my dreams, and pictures. He will NEVER be forgotten by all those he knew and cared about. He’s touched so many lives and let it be known, that will never stop. I love you Jonathan Nickolas Clough. <3

  15. I miss you like crazy Jon. Just like everyone else. We’ll all see you in time though. So until the day we meet again in my heart is where i keep you my friend.

  16. Nick- don’t you ever forget me and i’ll be proud to do the same for you. i’m having one of those days where i just want to have my whole world revolve around you..look at all my pictures of you, light the candle, look at your page…endless things i can do. Tears have been shed, smiles have been grinned, words have been said, hearts have been broken-never to be repaired. Jon I LOVE YOU! “Til the day we meet again<3" <3 i'll see you later <3

  17. Cluffy,
    This week has been so hard, remembering isn’t always easy. A year ago today I said goodbye to you, I touched your hand and kissed your head…. I think about you every single day and still find tears streaming down my face. We will forever miss you, you were like a brother to me and the boys still talk about you. I wear my green ribbon proudly and now have a butterfly tattoo on my foot in lime green in memory of you. No one can erase your smile and goofiness from my life. We love you Cluffy! Until we meet again “little brother”…
