    Dave, Jeanne, Allison, Brookie, Jo & Family-
    My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. We are terribly sorry for the loss of your daughter/sister/ granddaughter/niece.
    It is just so hard when God wants to take our loved ones away at such an early age. She is with Aunt Kalene again & She is taking care of her up in Heaven.
    Let us know if there is ANYTHING we can do to help with this process.
    We LOVE you all so very much!

  2. Toni Moore says:

    Dave, Jenann, Allison, Brooke, Jared,
    I can’t express in words how sorry I am for your loss of a beautiful, vibrant, selfless daughter/sister/wife.
    I feel privledged that she thought of me as a friend. We shared many laughs together, As you know, her smile could light up the room.
    I will forever be changed by her loss and I only hope that we all learn how important it is to let others know how much they are loved. There is no promise for tomorrow and although we could spend time being angry, we must also know that there are things that we are not meant to understand.
    God is lucky to have such a beautiful Angel, I hope he has big enough closets and doesn’t limit the number of shoes allowed!
    I will miss you Jamie, you were always someone that I had to hug and were always thrilled to see, and no matter how long it had been we always picked up right where we left off.
    RIP beauty, I hope to see you again someday.
    Love Always!!! Toni

  3. Stephanie Lawson says:

    I loved Jamie from the day she was born.
    We never knew what she was going to say or do next when she was little and couldn’t wait to find out what it was going to be. Chances were that it was going to make us laugh. From her soap opera stories that she would act out with her Barbies to her tales of how she was going to marry “Daniel-san” to her general exhuberance. . . we loved it all.
    Sending my love and prayers for comfort and peace to all of you.

    Steph, Jeff, Alex, Seth and Katy Lawson

    Dave and Jeannan, I’m so sorry for your devastating loss. I can’t pretend to know the unbelievable pain that you’re feeling right now. I can’t imagine a more painful experience than the loss of a child. I wish I had words that could ease the pain, the only thing I know for certain is that Jaimie is in the loving arms of Jesus and her Grandparents and sweet Kelene! I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Jaimie, but from everything I’ve been told about her…she was a Beautiful Soul! . Please know you will be in my thoughts and prayers…always, Love, Terry VanLent
