In Memory of my brother Jason Anderson.
Jason has taught us to live life to the fullest and to never stop dancing. Love and miss you so much Jas!
On June 30, 1990 Jason was riding his bicycle on the side of County Rd 29 when he was struck by a drunk driver. Against all odds he survived the crash, but had severe head injuries. At first the Dr’s didn’t think he would come out of the coma, then when he did 2 weeks later they said that he would never walk or talk again. After a lot of perseverance and will on Jason’s part he proved them all wrong. He excelled in sports and went on to compete in the Special Olympics. As a result of his head injuries he developed seizures. On November 24, 2004 Jason had a seizure in his sleep and never woke up. We were blessed with 14 miraculous years that the Dr’s could never have predicted. And although I will keep them with me, I will never forget the sight of my little brother unconscious and bleeding on the side of the road because of a senseless act.
