    Jessica was one of the most beautiful girls, inside and out, that I’ve ever met. She truly loved the kids, and they loved her. Despite all her troubles, they are truly wonderful children and her legacy lives on through them.
    Please tell the children that when they see the stars in the sky, one of them is their mother looking down on them with love!!!!!

    I am so very sorry to hear of Jessica’s passing. She was in my art class in high school, and I always enjoyed her very much. I think of her as a sweet and gentle soul, whom I was privileged to have known.
