  1. My heart and soul have been involved in Jessica’s short stay here on earth. I thank God for Facebook and the technology we now possess that enables all of us to keep in touch with each other.
    Jessica will never know her mom and dad, but as she watches them from above, she will surely be proud of their strength. I know I am.
    My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you, Kim. I have been a mother for 38 years and can only imagine what you are going through. I am grateful that you have your husband by your side to help you through this time.
    May God grant you all peace and tranquility as you deal with the difficult tasks ahead.

  2. Kim,
    There are no words to express how saddened I am for the loss of your precious baby daughter. She was an angel sent to you for a short time, but she touched so many lives during her stay here. She has returned to Heaven to be with our Heavenly Father where she can be healed. May God’s love and peace bring you comfort now and in the coming days.
