    To the entire Fish family. I could not help but read Jonathan’s obituary as Dr. Marianne Felice , Department Chair of Pediatrics, on David’s behalf annouced to our medical community that one of our own has lost a brother. As a pediatrician in the U Mass Community Medical group and a mother, I feel very strongly that we must send our support to each other as a community. Loss is challenging and loss of a child all the more. Jonathan’s beautiful face in this picture I see above tells a story of a young man who is kind and gentle. The words written by friends and colleagues above tells the same story. I am sincerely sorry for your loss and I hope that the pain of his absence will be slightly lessened by the beautiful memories and impressions he has obviously made on so many others in his short life. Know that I will be thinking of you in my prayers. Rspectfully, Dr. Lucy

    To Jonathan’s Family and Friends.
    Jon was always such a joy to work with. Always, always, doing so much to help others. Never a complaint about anybody. Always had a smile on his face. A wonderful human being. We will miss Jon very much.
    Try to remember some of the happy things though… Jon was so excited when he went on his big trip to Disney last year with his Mom and Brother.
    My deepest condolances at this very difficult time. My prayers are with you.
