Oh my Little Jamie. So, many times you made me laugh and smile. You were such a good snuggle. Jamie was one of my daycare kids. Judi and Tim and Andy, do you remember when she sang and danced, "Lolly Pop, OH Lolly Pop"! She had my whole house singing and dancing with her. I want to thank you, Andy, Tim and Judi, and all the other family and friends who were always there for Jamie; YOU ALL did a FINE JOB. It leaves me sad and lonely to know she is gone. I was lucky to know her. She is a blessing I was lucky to share.

Judi- I remember when you gave Jamie one of your kidneys and my mom wrote a letter to the Make a Wish Foundation to share your story. Then the 4 of you were able to go to Walt Disney World... Even back then, Jamie didn't let her condition break her spirit. She is an inspiration to anyone that is dealing with health problems because it really is all about your attitude! She had a wonderful attitude, loved kids, ESPECIALLY her niece Leila and will be truly missed. I can't imagine what you must be dealing with as a mother losing your daughter... there are really no words. I am very sorry for your loss, well really, it's all of our loss. Be strong and hang in there!

Oh my, there are so many memories of little Jamie. I remember the camping trips we used to go on that were so much fun, especially at Whitewater State Park. I also remember when we camped over in Albert Lea with that old van and played Scrabble using a variety of words! I remember going to the parades in Faribault, most mostly the Pet Parade was so much fun. She was a delightful young lady and will be missed by so many. Tim and Judi, our sympathies for the loss of your beautiful daughter. Dave and Robin Spande
