Memories Timeline


  1. I feel so blessed to have met a friend like you. We shared so much in the 25 years of our friendship. May you find peace now that you graduated to the heavens. I loved you like a sister. Save me a seat………

  2. Jill,
    You were my very first friend. I’m so glad we grew up together. I have so many memories of our time together. Some friends are more like family. There is peace knowing you had a relationship with Jesus so I know where you are today. The reunion with your parents must have been great! I’ll see you again one day.

  3. Jill, I called you “Cuz” because you were family to me. I knew you my whole life and I’m so glad I got to know you. I know we’ll meet again one day. Until then…

  4. Rest peacefully, angel. I know you are in God’s kingdom and enjoying fellowship with all who have gone before you.

  5. Jill is my second cousin! We have shared some laughs and some sorrows over the years, but, love binds us ‘blood’ relatives together to endure the challenges of life and laugh in spite of them. Her diabetes was always a dark cloud hanging over her life, but she endured. Just recently we were able to spend some time sharing some memories! Thankful to have had this “girl” in my life for so many years! Before we would hang up the phone, we would always say, “I love you, Cuz!” Makes me smile! Rest with Jesus, sweet Jill!

  6. So very sorry to hear of Jill’s passing, I was very shocked to hear of this sad news. My condolences to her family. I will keep you all in my prayers.

  7. I am deeply saddened to hear of this. My thoughts and prayers go to all her family. Rest in peace, Jilly and will see you again one day!

  8. Very sad to hear of a loved one passing. Jill was full of joy and laughter and loved her son Kye. She will be missed but more so at rest.

  9. Even though my heart is broken, I am comforted to know you are with our King. I know your are dancing in heaven and your able to be with your parents as I know you have missed them enormously. I will miss you my sweet friend and will see you again soon.

  10. Jill, we have known each other since we were toddlers.. I remember your mom babysitting me and I remember crying when I watched my dad drive away. You told me “it will be ok”. Here I am crying again and I imagine you in Heaven telling me now the same thing – “it will be ok”. I remember us playing in your backyard and that playhouse we got stuck in.. I remember us sitting at your kitchen table having breakfast – eating those stiff grits made us giggle as your mom listened to Paul Harvey on the radio and telling us to hush. I remember us sneaking into your sister’s room and getting into all her things. I have so many fond memories of you and I will cherish them always. I’m still in shock and so very sad-I will miss you but I know you are in a better place. Love you and I’ll see you again dear friend!

  11. Tim, Kye and all other family, our prayer is that your hearts and souls find peace and comfort during this sad time.

  12. Rest in Peace Jill…
    Tim and Kye, may hugs surround you today and everyday
    Sending love and prayers from NC

  13. My heart breaks for you Tim and Kye. I just can’t believe this has happened. Praying for peace at this difficult time. She was a special lady and loved you both with all she had. She is with her parents now and healed. Love you both
