Jessica was one of a kind. You will always be a beautiful soul in my memory. Thank you so much for the love you showed, the chicken noodle soup, and the photo albums you sat down and shared with me. I can't believe this has really happened...but know your children will be well loved and so will you sweet girl. Jessica..you are and always will be beautiful
