Jay a left an amazing Legacy. A Legacy that many only dream of. She was loved in so many ways. She touched many lives and I am sure that the day she stood before God, she said to Him, "I used everything you gave me." Rest In Peace.

Jayna would light up a room when she walked in. Her compassion knew no bounds. I will miss her dearly. In her short life she made such a difference. My prayers are with her family.

Forever young Janya, Although I did not know you but with the pictures shared by your family and friends I wish that I could have. Sending prayers to the ones you left behind, and the courage for them to carry on without you shows the Faith of the Lord who you are with now. There will be a homecoming soon as the Lord will rise again. God's Blessings for the Family to give each of you peace and comfort.
