 Today, I just found out about Jorden's accident, no disrespect is ment. I truly don't have words when a young person in our community is lost, the hurt bring more anger to our youth, who cry out in anger in different ways, one issues, I seen was they turned at their young to alcohol and drugs; alcohol at their age is very dangerous to the development of their young brains and minds; and to the hearts of those who love each of them. The hurt is felt throughout the communtiy as a whole, it something that tares people apart, even families, but you must come together as one find the one thing that unites that is to fight for our youth and each the our communities hold. To know that losing a life is devastating, I can't change the lose, but what you each should know alcohol isn't the answer, but find the love that lifes holds, we lost one lest no lose another. Find within yourselves that those who seek alcohol are truly seeking acceptance. It's not my places but I would love send this to each: My - Your - Our Heavenly Father, your will hold Jorden in the safety of you bosom for safe keeping, as Jesus Christ was placed in God bosom. Jorden will never be forgotten. Would you give his family the peace that Jorden dwells in the bosom of God, and in many masion of the Father. His life is now by the still water thank you for his peace. In Christ Aman

I just stumbled across your comment and I will have you know, there was no drinking involved. An inexperienced driver, driving too fast, on a wet and windy road that should have guard rails in places. Im not sure where you got your info but it is false. He was still in his pajamas coming back from getting breakfast at McDonalds. I think you meant well in your post but as his Mother, your comment hurt years later. I guess you assumed because he was a teenager and got in an accident. Maybe you have him confused with another JordAn. 

I am trying to find out what happened to my Friend that was in an accident in Box Springs TX either Mon or Tuesday she is in a coma
