happy birthday jessica...





so in honor of my niece who would be 33 today, we ventured to red robin (her birthday favorite spot) to celebrate with a french dip sandwich and diet coke (her favorite birthday meal). how wonderful to celebrate such a wonderful life, who is alive and well...just in another place. i know beyond a shadow of a doubt she is doing wonderful things and probably pities us poor mortals who have to deal with such mundane, unimportant things. the only mourning we do is for ourselves, as she is just fine without us. i am confident there are many great things she is doing...so great she was called home a little early to perform her duties. she was just too valuable to waste here on earth. so jessica, in honor of you...simply feel sorry for us pitiful earthlings...while we indulge ourselves in such inconsequential things as fat laden cheeseburgers and all you can eat fries. 

just promise me you will be the first one i see when its my turn.

Oh, I can barely see the keyboard as I make this entry..happy tears are streaming down my face. Thank you for your profound thoughts Shawna..all so true. We're so grateful for the knowledge that we share knowing that we will ALL be united with Jessica again. Every day that goes by is one day closer to when we see her again..the greatest birthday gift we can give Jessica is to love & cherish our loved ones..to be the best that we can be. AND I KNOW that Jessica will definitely be there to greet ALL of us when it's our time to leave this mortal life..I'm sure she'll have one BIG party planned!
We love you Shawna..thank you for being the best sister & best friend..we love you always & forever..& we look forward to spending the eternities with you!!
Love, Melissa & Jack
