My heart breaks hearing about Jamie’s passing. She worked for me in my daycare about 4 years ago, and she was such a wonderful and hard working co-worker who was wonderful with the daycare children in my daycare. They all loved her so much! I will forever cherish the two and a half years she worked for me before she got sick. I just wish she had more time on this earth. I know she will be missed by so many people that were friends & family who loved her. ♥️ My deepest condolences to your entire family. Fly high Jamie! You will be missed here on earth! Rest In Peace.

Jamie, you were a true inspiration. I could talk to you about anything and you always gave me the best advice. I remember many conversations where we would just talk for hours and hours. You were such a sweet spirit. I will always regret that I lost touch with you these past few years and for that I am sorry my sweet friend. Heaven truly gained a beautiful angel.
