A perfect beautiful baby girl was born Oct 9th, 1996 to a family so excited to have her grace their lives. Especially her big brother, 2 and 1/2 years old at the time, who simply called her " My Baby." Jessica was immediately loved and adored by all, as she always would be for the rest of her life.
One fateful morning at 2 months of age, our baby would be found near death in her crib. 9-1-1 was called. Our baby was hospitalized for 3 months and had suffered massive damages that no one would fully understand until 18 years later with new genetic testing became available.
We were happy to get our precious baby home again, but her life and ours would be forever changed. She would be special and have nurses and machines and unusual needs. Years have gone by and many struggles, sometimes very difficult and life threatening have been courageously conquered by our strong little girl; the most amazing person I've ever known.
There were tough times and great times too. Jessica brought a bright shining light wherever she was. She was upbeat and positive by nature. And, oh how she gave back the love she was shown. She stole the heart and admiration of every person that crossed her path. Oh, how she enriched this world. She loved upbeat music, movies, stories, and dance. Her very favorite character, Dora, made her flash many smiles. She had a bit of a naughty quality as well, though; she loved to eavesdrop or "ear hustle", as her nurse, Wanda, would say. And instead of cute girlie movies, she loved action movies; Pacific Rim was her favorite! She would watch that and smile so long; you'd think her face would hurt. And no one better interrupt THAT movie.
Jessica got sick one last time. And as strong as she was, would not survive. We will never forget you, little flower that brightened our lives. You are in Jehovah's memory. We will soon see you again. Rest now until that beautiful moment where we can kiss and hold you again. A whole beautiful young lady you will be. How excited we will be. Until then, we wait and remember you always with bright smiles like you always gave to us.
We love you forever and always.
