Every year without fail, I've remembered that today, March 3rd, is Jazz's birthday. Doesn't matter how many years go by, this day will always be Her day. I cannot pin the year I met Jazz, but I assume it was 3rd or 4th grade. Though she was younger than me, I looked up to her, figuratively and literally. Jazz introduced me to a lot of the things that I liked, even things I still love to this day. I'm so thankful to have met Jazz and to have spent the time that I did with her. I mentioned it before but, happy birthday Jazz. I love you forever.

The first time I met Jazz was in my 8th grade orientation for Marshall high school. The next year we found each other to be in the same gym class. That’s where everything started, where we became really good friends. One thing I realized about jazz is that her personality always outshined everyone else’s in the room and how she would bring light to every situation. She was confident in herself and didn’t care what anyone else thought about her. She was so outgoing and did whatever she pleased without hesitation. The last time I saw her, and my last memory of seeing her, was at a friends house where she saw me for the first time in a long time and she immediately ran up to me and gave me a huge hug and kissed me on the cheek. I have never received a reaction from any girl like that who was so happy to see me, and that really made my night. No other girl would have a reaction like that towards me and that, our last memory together, is something I’ll never forget for the rest of my life. Thank you Jazz for being in my life and always staying so real and pure. I will never forget you.
Rest In Peace ❤️

Jazz was amazing, kind, artistic and really smart. I remember the days she'd draw in class, I was always inspired by them. The day she came to my house and we hung out at the pool and had pizza. I might not have been close to her like others but we had things in common. I really wish I was able to see her one last time.

Dear Maria,
I am immensely sorry for the tragedy that has struck you.
There is no greater injustice than the loss of a child.
My thoughts are with you.

Chère Maria,
J'ai été effondré d'apprendre la terrible nouvelle, et je ne peux qu'imaginer l'immense douleur que tu dois ressentir. Sache que tes collègues pensent à toi et sont là si tu as besoin de quoi que ce soit.

Sweetie, I didn't know you really well but when I share one of my babies with you, you are family! I'm so glad that we shared your baby "Bear"! It was an honor meeting with you while you and your dad picked out your new family member!
