My friend Jason Holden passed away last winter. He was one of the  brightest And most effervescent people ive had the pleasure of knowing.  

Jason was 28 years old and succumbed to the scourge of opiate addiction that has paralyzed the metro area. I have spent two tours in iraq but never thought id have to bury my friends when i got home. Jason grew up in a small town north of Brainerd and graduated from the University of Minnesota Morris. His spirit will be missed.
