Eight-year-old Jonny Wade of Jerseyville continues to inspire those who heard of his fight against cancer, months after his death.  The Wade family this week donated $21,000 to the Jerseyville Park & Recreation Department, the result of donations that were received in Jonny's name.

Park & Rec Director Angela Sullivan tells The Big Z Jonny's spirit touched the local community and beyond.
