Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures of Jamie. She was a very special lady and I adored her very much. Brent and I both did.

My fondest memory of Jamie is when she helped with VBS at Wellborn Baptist Church. She often helped in the kitchen and was such a delight to be around. You could tell how much she enjoyed the kids. At the wrap up you would see her sitting in church watching the kids sing and sharing in their joy and smiles. She always had a ready smile and kind word and you always knew how much she loved the Lord and her family. She was just a very special person. My sincere condolences to her family.

I had the privilege of calling Jamie my friend. We met driving Special Needs bus routes for College Station ISD and she was always a ray of sunshine. I'm glad I got to see her the last time I visited College Station last July. She was one of a kind, a great friend and loved by so many. She loved her family so much and would often share about them! She will be dearly missed.
