    RIP Jamie. Everyone fell in love with you. You touched so many people. Even though we never knew each other too well, I feel like I have with all the stories I have heard about you. Keep watching over everyone. You were so funny. I really wish I had known you.

  2. Fern says:

    Jamie was an amazing woman who faced challenges every day of her life. She was beautiful and talented. Jamie never let her disability define her. She reached many milestones in her life which was a cause for celebration. Jamie was the light in her mother’s eyes. Joanie raised Jamie alone when Jamie’s dad Gary passed. She raised Jamie in a wonderful and amazing way.
