In his letter, Jonathan thanked Katie and their children for giving him the “best life” and told her that he will be happy if she would someday find someone to love her and their children.

“I love you, guys, with all my heart and you’ve given me the best life I could have ever asked for. I am so lucky. It makes me so proud to be your husband and the father to Braedyn and Penny,” he wrote. “Let Braedyn know he’s my best bud and I’m proud to be his father and for all the amazing things he’s done and continues to do. Let Penelope know she’s a princess and can have whatever she wants in life.”

“Katie, you are the most beautiful caring nurturing person I’ve ever met,” he expressed. “You are truly one of a kind. Make sure you live life with happiness and that same passion that made me fall in love with you. Seeing you be the best mom to the kids is the greatest thing I’ve ever experienced…. I’m so lucky. Don’t look back. And if you meet someone, know that if he loves you and the kids, I’d love that for you. Always be happy no matter what.”

On March 26, Jonathan was admitted to the hospital due to severe breathing issues and, eventually, tested positive for COVID-19. On April 22, he succumbed to cardiac arrest.

“Even though he was fighting for his life for the past month, I know up until the last second he wanted to make sure the kids and I were okay,” she told BuzzFeed News on the day of his passing. “He knew he had to say something to me because I haven’t been able to speak to him in so long.”

On Facebook, Katie posted a tearjerking tribute for her late husband.

“I am going to spend every second of every minute of every day missing my best friend. It’s only been days but it feels like years. This life will be way too long and lonely without you. I miss you driving me crazy, making me laugh, making me smile, and just loving me. Knowing I’ll never feel love and friendship like that again gives me such physical pain. I don’t want to spend my life without you and missing you. I wish I could do this all over again and protect you,” she expressed.

Katie ended the post saying, “I will spend my life wishing I could have saved you. You didn’t deserve this. Our kids didn’t deserve this. I’m sorry, Babe, so very sorry.”
