    I did not know John well but he played an important role in my life nonetheless. He was Best friend to my ex wife and a kind and patient adult figure for my kids. Is certainly missed.

    Jon was a truly kind-hearted soul. I join all those who grieve his passing, which was much too soon. Jon always considered others before himself. He was extremely intelligent and brought much joy to me and others with his quick wit and a smile that lit up a room. I am sad beyond words, yet I know he is in a better place. My sympathy to his family and closest friends.

    I was friends with Boston. I can say that he is one of the most kind hearted and genuine person I’ve ever met. We had many laughs together, I’m definitely going to remember him, he’s one of those people that you hope to see somewhere you’d both hang out at or something. I will try to live a better life myself in his honor. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. He really helped me deal with the grief of losing my dad. I love you Jon, may you rest in piece.

Florida law states “A cremation may not be performed until a legally authorized person gives written authorization for such cremation,” (FS 497.607).  Furthermore, the law defines whom the “legally authorized person” is and sets up the order of priority of next of kin. We require a written authorization before scheduling any cremation or funeral services. The “Authorization for Cremation and Disposition” form must be signed by the next of kin in the following order: spouse, son or daughter (of legal age), parent, brother or sister, grandchild, grandparent.
