Obituary

Saw You Getting Tired

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be
So he put His arms around you and whispered "Come to me."
With tearful eyes we watched you as you slowly slipped away
And though we loved you dearly, we couldn't make you stay.
Your golden heart stopped beating, your tired hands put to rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

Jessica was one of the sweetest, kindest students I ever taught at Statesville Middle, and also so smart. I saw her several years ago and was so proud of her accomplishments and who she had become as an adult. My sympathy to her precious sons and family.

Dear Orian,
I did not know Jessica but I know that if she was a part of you she had to be a wonderful person. I am so sorry for your loss. May you find solace in your many beautiful memories of your daughter. May God give you and her children the strength you need in the difficult days days ahead. Please reach out me if there is anything I do to help.
With love and sympathy,
Ora Daniels Merritt,
