My prayers go to Jessica family during this time. I worked with Jessica a few years ago, I was shocked to hear of her passing I have cried all day remembering my friend. I just met Jessicawhen she was pregnant with Pumpkin 🎃 it was not long until I too became pregnant and Jessica alway had a smile on her face and positive words for me. She was a true friend to me she came to the hospital when I had our son Grayson she was one of the first people to hold him. She always gave me good advice for a young mother. She had the most beautiful soul she could light up a room with her smile. I will truly miss my friend. I pray for comfort for her family at this time especially her sweet daughter Veronika Pumpkin and her husband Claude. You are in our prayers daily.

It hurt my heart to hear of the passing of Jessica. I am in Detroit and one our UAH classmates contacted me Tuesday. I loved Jessica, we kept in touch after graduation. My daughter is 3 months older than hers. We both just have the one daughter and after having our daughters we sent each other pictures of the girls each month for a year or more. Jessica turned me on to Bows and Toes, I'll never forget! I want to express my deepest sympathy to Clyde, Veronika and her entire family, may God wrap his loving arms around you all.
