Among other things

Since I saw you for the last time, that night of May, these last days you have been closer to me than ever. On Saturday we had a thanksgiving reunion at my house, and some people that knew you and loved you came to celebrate with me on your name. You would be happy in knowing that some of your friends are now my friends too and based only on that I can say the reunion was a complete success. I made sure they had a good time, with lot of food, drinks, dancing and laughs. They were there, when at the end of night I felt your absence and lost my heart, reminding me you are in everything we do together.
Your family will be in my thoughts tomorrow, I wish I could do something for them.

I think you are already doing more than what they could ask for... Remembering Jessica...

I somehow stumbled on to this blog and was truely touched that someone would go to so much effort for a lost friend. It is very admirable and I am sure that from where ever she is, Jessica is smiling down on you with warmth in her heart.

The tale of your friend is a very tragic one and one I would avenge my self if I could get my hands on the purpetrator, as life has forced me to realise just how precious life is and how quickly it can be taken away ... in more than just one sense...

Keep Well and Keep Honoring her memory as you are doing

Thank you very much for your comment. whoever did this to Jessica took a big part of my heart, I am trying to fill it with love and friendship, the kind of things she offered to everybody..I am trying honoring her memory everyday. However it is not easy when I realize this person is still walking the streets..

Ivonne, I come here and read your posts as often as I can. I was friends with Jess at Miami and I really appreciate that you are doing this for her and for those of us that love her. She is someone that leaves a mark on your heart for life...that is something that can never be taken away.

Take care,

Teresa Shannon

Thank you so much Teresa. She really left this huge emptiness in me..I am not sure it will ever leave. I am glad you come and read, I hope my experiences encourage people to hold tight to the moments they spent with Jessica. I know Jessica would had done the same for me and my family.
