Dear Michelle & family,
I had the pleasure of working with Jazmin at the Centre school, and completed a few visits to your home in Niagara Falls. It was very apparent that Jazmin was well loved by her family, and brought joy through her smiles and playful mischievous nature. I am very sorry for your loss, and hope that you find comfort from the memories of your time with Jazz.

Sincere condolences, Jill Cline (Occupational Therapist)

Dear Michelle and Family,
I am so sorry about your precious Jazz. I was truly blessed to have taught her during her first year at NCC. So happy to see Jazz later in the halls and classrooms at school. Jazzy Jazz would always respond with a ‘yes’ and her big beautiful smile when asked if she was still causing trouble. Her bright sparkling eyes with that spontaneous happy smile will always be with me when remembering your Jazz.
Thinking of all of you during this very difficult time.

I was fortunate to work with Jazz at NCC School. She was always so happy to share her sweet laughter and smile with those around her and to connect with others. I will remember her accompanying me on lunch duty, and her being so happy to say hello to her friends in all of the classrooms. We will hold her in our hearts 💕
