Who would've thought a friendship started on Facebook would mean so much to me. Or that losing it so suddenly would knock the wind out of me.

So many times we were supposed to connect, and it finally happened last year. I made my way to the hospital because I refused to leave Dallas without seeing you. We laughed and chatted and even started that long overdue sickle cell documentary.

And ever since that day, I've been trying to get back to visit you. I'm so sorry I never got the chance to visit again. When I come back, I still will.

My cousin-friend -- thank you for the joy you brought to my life. I now have another warrior angel looking over me.

To Jei's family, loved ones and friends, you're all in my prayers.

Jei, you are my inspiration, a true warrior. Our family has loss a symbol of greatness. You left us with such good memories but most of all courage. You taught us how to be courageous and to fight till the end. You were the strongest person I have ever known. You fought a GOOD fight and finished your course with flying colors. Well done thy good and faithful servant. You will always be in my heart and never forgotten. I love you lil cuz!

The battle many times is in the fight. The race is given to the endurer. Faith is what keeps up going not strength. Fighters hold on to their faith in knowing their going to win. When trying to figure out how you're going to make it...keep the faith. The faith is what keeps us together. Not by my might but by your strength o' God! Cherish moments God shows us who He is. In wondering who God is take a look around. Beating illness is not about healing..it's about keeping the faith and finishing the course. Thanks for showing us Faith, who God is and how to fight! We love you sis and will continue on by Faith.
Love Gracie

Monday evening, I was notified of the peaceful death of a fellow Sickle Cell Warrior. I met her almost exactly one year ago. Almost immediately an overwhelming range of emotions enveloped me. Today, I will be attending her memorial services to celebrate her life. As someone who lives with this disease every day here is something I believe all is warriors want you to know. For the most part, we choose to LIVE each day-making every moment count! Do we hurt, do we get tired, do we struggle with others telling us how we should be dealing with this chronic illness? ABSOLUTELY! But by God’s grace, we fight, we live, we are WARRIORS! Rest well Jei!

Who would have known that you would have been a forever friend when we met at HSHP our freshman year. You always kept me laughing and I think for the first time I had met someone as small as me, be spunky and assertive and I gravitated toward that quality in you. Your heart was golden and your spirit was pure. I know we are all better to have known you and pray to see you again! Rest peacefully and know that the dash between your dates made an impact on many people! Love you!!!

Even from way back in high school you were a light of truth & love. Always as sweet as could be, but always willing to quickly speak your mind & stand up for others, including myself. I will never forget your wide smile, big heart, and kind spirit. God gave you purpose & oh girl, did you truly shine on the path to it!!! I knew 24 years ago meeting you as a freshman that you were different, great & nothing ever changed. Shine on beautiful one, you'll never be forgotten. Heaven awaited your blessed arrival, now rest easy. Love you....

I am so sorry to hear of the your loss. Death is truly an enemy. (1 Cor 15:26) However, this verse contains the hope that we all look forward to when this enemy “will be brought to nothing.” Until that time, be assured that your pain is shared by many, including God, who makes the promise to “swallow up death in victory”. (Isaiah 25:8) May this hope comfort you in your time of grief.
