  66. I had an angel visit me, for the past few years. From time to time she would drop by and be a beaming ray of hope shining her smile so bright. It wasn’t always easy street, as we all know life has it’s way of stirring up the worst types of tests for you to push through. She was generous enough through those years to share some time with me. Through my intimidating deminer she would have no problem asking me about my day or seeing if I heard that latest new song on soundcloud. I’m not approachable to many people but Jess had no problems talking to me or asking me about me. I will miss this little angel more than words. I will miss our little moments, her joker attitude and most of all her beautiful smile. My heart aches for your lose. Thank you, Jess, for enriching our lives with your radiance.

  83. Jessica… I first met you when you were with your dad around the age of 6 or 7. You were a bundle of energetic joy, turning cartwheels and doing flips nonstop, with a smile that could light up half the world. I teased you saying you’d eventually walk on your hands because you were constantly upside down. I was lucky enough to see you about a month ago as a young lady. What a personality and vibrance and zest for connecting with people you had! Beautiful inside and out. Your dad talked about you all the time. You were the apple of his eye, Sweetheart. I don’t know your mom well, but I know you were the apple of her eye too. You were called Home for a reason, Baby Girl. We may never understand it. But I know that Heaven gained a beautiful soul for a reason. Please watch over your father and mother and help us all navigate better through this life if it’s not too much trouble. You made an impact in your short time here. Thank you. Fly, cartwheel and smile, Sweetface.

  84. My heart breaks for you all. Such a beautiful young lady. My thoughts and prayers are with you all ❤️
