Jamie was the most caring and selfless person, always putting others before herself.

Jamie made it a priority to spend time with her family and friends, organize get-togethers, and never missed a birthday. She introduced everyone to her love of Star Wars. She was a prankster and filled her home and our lives with happiness, love, and fun. Most weekends were spent enjoying life.

A part of my life from my very earliest memories. You were a tom-boy. You were brave. So brave that it scared me a little when I was really small.
Each time we saw each other, and then left our hearts would break, the tears would flow for hours. You taught me that your family keeps little pieces of you with them, and the most whole you can be is when you are all together.
You told me your secrets as we camped on the floor in my parents living room. I told you mine. I asked all the questions I knew of the universe and you knew so much as my elder. I looked up to you. So many people did.
As we got older, we started to reconnect after our 20's separated us a bit. I'm so glad I got to see you as often as I did. Your smile and willingness to join in a visit around the table with family were excellent. Drinking PBR with Uncle Forrest, and shooting the bull.
Your kind heart made Audra love you so much. She clings to the knives you gave her now. Her Arwine sweatshirt has become a precious commodity. The way you loved Gunner was obvious to anyone who spent any time with you.
You were fierce. In love and loyalty, and protecting others.
The world is supposed to stop when we lose someone like you, my dear cousin. But Noone else seems to know this...
Your life was too short. Noone is ready for your departure. But I believe that the suddenness, and sadness of it will be an affirmation of the surest things in this world. Life is fleeting. Love is paramount above all things. Forgiveness, and kindness, goodness, and mercy are crucial now, today, because we might not get to make amends tomorrow. All we have is the present moment, we can't live in the past, but we take you with us. You are in our hearts. We love you so much. Forever.
