  1. “What gives meaning and value to life is our capacity for giving to others, our ability to experience joy, and to share it with those around us.” Jessica brought joy to the lives of all her family and friends with her caring, loving ways. I will always remember her with that sweet smile on her face. She was so full of life that her death is hard to understand. I have to believe that she is still with us smiling down from above. She will be sadly missed. I send my love and deepest sympathy. Babydoll
