Rest in Peace, Jami

Sharing is caring!

My dear friend,

I can’t believe you were taken from us so quickly and without warning. And right when we were getting back into the swing of our friendship. You were too young to go; 26 is still a baby in this world and to think that I won’t have another day with you will continue to break my heart. My best childhood friend….my partner in pre-teen crimes, too many memories to count. Remember when we went to disney world with your girl scout troop? it was my third time there and your first…you rookie lol. Remember when Imani was born? We both felt like we were finally getting the little sister we wanted. Remember talking on the phone about “homework”? If only those boys knew how much we talked about them all those nights. And to think, we still were the top students in our class.

I miss you with all of my heart and I still weep when I think about you not being here. Its just not fair. Not fair to your mother, not fair to your sister and not fair to your daughter. You were loved by many and you will be in so many hearts from now until we see you again. My heart is broken but I’m so glad to have an angel like you looking down on us from heaven. May the Lord keep you close to His bosom….I love you, girl….

    Matt 4v5 – Blessed are those who mourn, God will comfort them. I’m terribly sorry for your loss. Just remember that she’s in a better place now and that she’s dancing with the angels. My thoughts and prayers are with you & her family.
