Flying High...

She has gone home ...

Early this morning, at 3:50am Jessica Easley took her final, painful breath on this earth.

She did get her final wish, to go to Heaven at 11 years old! Yes, she departed this life on the very day, 11 years ago, that she entered it.

She is free now. Running and playing with 2 legs, 2 healthy lungs.

The only consolation in this terrible thing is that along with her earthly body, so died the beast.
It has lost. It causes her no more fear, no more pain. It can't take any more.

Oh how I wish there were something besides death that could have conquered this.


Thank you all so much for your kind words and for putting up with my ranting of late.

It's difficult in these situations not to climb up high and scream it from the rooftops!

The saddest part is that it is not over. So many more of our friends will meet the same fate I'm afraid. And when they do, there will be no doubt in anyone's mind of how it makes me feel.

Thank you all again.

Just to pass along the information, Jessica will have visitation on October 15,2009.. burial will take place on the 16th.

Her procession will consist of one final motorcycle ride through town before she is laid to rest that afternoon. I can only imagine the huge smile she'll have from up above. She did specifically request that all in attendance wear bright, cheerful colors. No black unless you're wearing biker leather!

For the rest of her "celebration of life" plans please see her caringbridge site.

You all are the best.

P.S. I'll post later tonight with some more from the little skitterbug! He's had a busy day.
