Jamie was a beautiful and loving soul. She was loved dearly by all who knew her. She was the first sibling of my husband’s that I met when we started dating and she was so accepting of me. We became instant friends. She made me feel welcome, and that’s the type of person she was. She was always there to listen and lend a helping hand if she could. She will be always be missed as her absence as left a whole in many of our lives.
She was more than a daughter –
She was the fiercely loving, loyal heart of her mother
& the strong spirited, adventurous soul of her father.
She was more than a wife –
She was a cherished companion, a heartbeat connected to another,
A soulmate and once in a life time love.
She was more than a sister –
She was a life long secret keeper,
the one you could tell anything to, no matter what.
She was more than an Aunt –
She was a true friend,
somone to reach out to when you needed a hand to hold,
always there with love in her heart.
She was all of these things and many more
but alas it was time for our angel to soar.
Daughter, Wife, Sister, Aunt, Niece, Cousin, and Friend
She left a legacy that will never end.
With heavy hearts and tears in our eyes,
we’ve had to say our last good byes.
But goodbyes aren’t forever, for we’ll meet again,
where death doesn’t separate family and friend.
So rest sweet Angel and watch over us all,
help to guide us if we fall,
Until the day we leave this place
And we once again can feel your embrace.
