    My sympathies go out to your family at this very sad time. I took pictures of the West Henderson golf team this spring, and although I did not know Jordan, I remembered him when I saw his picture on the news report. He seemed like a nice, friendly and fun-loving young man. I wanted to offer to send you photographs that I took of him if you would care to have them. You can contact me at if you are interested. Again, my condolences.
