  • Man…
    You have on my mind every single day for the last few days. I am torn between my feelings on all of this. I miss you so much and it hurts to know we will never get to see eachother or talk on the phone again, it hurts that you won’t be here to make me laugh so freaking hard that my stomach hurts or that I wont be able to sit and listen to you vent and lend you my shoulder to cry on. But, at the same time, I’m so glad that you have been freed from all of your earthly struggles and pains. You endured so much in your life and it helped shape you into the beautiful, strong, and loving person that I grew to know, love, and become such close friends with. It hurts that you’re gone but it helps to knkw you’re free. Finally free.
    I miss you today, I’ll miss you tomorrow, but I’ll forever love you and cherish the friendship we had.
    Fly high and rest easy besutiful.

  • Its been a rough week even though it doesnt feel real everyday its like reel of memories that i have of you are playing over and over its not a bad thing cause we had so many good memories. I love you so much. You will forever and always be in my heart.

  • Well sis you were always my little girl I just don’t know what to say we had some good times though I’ll always remember the first time I took you swimming in the ocean and the nights me and you eating popcorn. Rest in peace my little angel

  • Not many people are lucky enough to fall in love with their best friend, however, that’s what Jess and I had. We were best friends for years before we fell in love. I remember the first day I met Jess when she moved into Georgetown Apartments and I knocked on her door and asked her if she had seen the landlord, but in truth, I saw her moving in and I just wanted to meet her! Well, she yelled at me, lol, Jessica could show a rough exterior until she let her guard down, and then she was the kindest, funnest, and most humble person I know. That was the start of an amazing friendship in 2009. Over the next few years I was with Jess a lot, and the thing I take away from those first years the most is that Jessica was an amazing mother! She loved her kids so much and she guarded them like I lioness would guard her cubs. Then our friendship grew into love. A deep love that made us inseparable. I am truly blessed to have had the most amazing woman in the world not only as my best friend, but also as the love of my life. Jess, the two things you wanted the most: 1.) To be an awesome mother and 2.) To be loved unconditionally. I want to tell you that speaking from my own experiences with you that you were both. An amazing mom and I truly love you unconditionally baby. “Say Hello To Heaven” baby and you will be in my heart always and until we meet again my love. I miss you and love you so much.

  • I miss you everyday my beautiful sister. I wish I got more time with you but the times I did have I’ll mever forget. Like the day you did my makeup and hair. We had so much fun.
