Jon A. Gauger Memorial Fund
In addition to being overcome with sadness for our beloved Jon-Jon, the harsh reality is that now we're also left with medical and funeral expenses that we aren't prepared for. I mean, who's going to pay for Metallica and the keg and the strippers? That stuff's expensive.
Love to all of you, and love to my big bro. You'll never be forgotten, Mr. Jon Gauger. XOXO
I think this is the hardest update I've ever written in my life.
Although I was sure Jon would definitely kick the crap out of cancer, I'm afraid it just wasn't meant to be. I think my daddy must want him up in Heaven with him. Can't blame him, really. Jon's pretty effing awesome. Words can't express how thankful I am to all who've supported Jon and my family through this difficult battle, and although I hate to ask for more, the sad reality is that there are still expenses we're left to deal with, so I'm gonna. I still intend to lick all your faces at some point, too. I haven't forgotten.
Love to you all, and big love to our Jon. I don't care what anyone says, I still think you've got the biggest balls of them all, big bro.
Jon started Chemo Round 3 a few days ago, so let's all give him some virtual hugs and stuff like that. Go Team Jon! We need matching jackets or something.
Thank you so much to everyone who's contributed thus far, and to those who've been there for emotional support also. I don't care what anyone says about you, you guys are alright, I guess. Don't tell anyone I said that. I'll deny it. Don't want people to think I've gotten soft in my old age.
