Another Year has Gone By
Three years ago today, our dear Jessica started her day with hopes and dreams and full of life. Less than 8 hours from this minute, her life took a dramatic turn. Our lives were changed forever and hers was cut short. Jessica is in heaven now as one of God's little angels. We continue to fight for justice. We shall not rest until justice has been served. People may move on and forget that tragic evening but her family and friends shall never forget. There is no moving on from a life so well worth living been taken away from us so violently. 
I have to replace the image of my dear sweet niece in the hospital bed hooked up to machines and a gunshot wound to her head with the memory of her standing at my front door with a book bag on her back and a big smile on her face. She never lost that smile. I miss my Jessie baby. I know that she is alright because she is with God now. My heart is forever broken because a part of our family is gone. We will meet again one day.

Happy Fourth of July my Little Civilian Soldier
You are a true hero and will never be forgotten. You gave your life like a true soldier. Today, I send a private salute to you. 

With all my Love,

Aunt Cynthia

Remembering Jessica - One Year Ago Tragedy Changed our Lives

Hello world!

Welcome to your blog. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!

Happy Birthday Jessica

Jessica would have celebrated her 21st birthday on December 11, 2011.

We miss you dearly! It's too tough to celebrate with you gone but you will forever live on in our hearts. Celebrate in heaven a life well lived. You touched so many lives in the short time you were here. You were the epitome of true love and understanding. You were a bright light to the young and the old. I send my 21 hugs and kisses to my angel.

It's been almost a year now and my heart is still broken. Our lives were changed forever the day you left this earth. I still wonder how someone so special could leave so soon. You are my angel, my Jesse baby and my HERO. There isn't a day that the sun rises that I don't think of you. I think about your selfless act and your contagious smile and I can't help but smile through the tears. You will never be forgotten. I will see you again one day. I will love you forever. Rest in Peace.

Your Auntie (Cynthia)

I can't believe a year is approaching. I think about you everyday, all of the moments we shared, the good and the almost bad, the memories, the laughs, the cries. I see your face all the time, and that's partly why I chose the same dorm room. I needed something we shared to hold on to. I'm glad you visited my dreams here and there and spoke to me too. It's been a while and I'm not sure if you'll be visiting any time soon but I definitely hold all of those visits very dear to my heart. Love you always and forever. Rest in Peace. Your name twin <3

I don't remember the first conversation I had with Jess, but my number one memory will forever be finding out that we had the same birthday. That lead to an instant connection between us; I only wish that we had time to strengthen this connection and spend more time together. But I'm content in knowing the wonderful person that you were. Until we meet again \"birthday twin\"...continue to rest in peace

Love, Evelina

Not a day goes by that I don't thank God for blessing me with the gift of having you as my daughter. You were a beacon of light and sunshine to many during your short stay here on earth and with your passing your light shone even brighter and while we knew you were special, we finally understood. We had received the blessing of having an angel walk amongst us. Jess, we miss you dearly but know that we will always love you and treasure your beautiful memories forever.

One Year Anniversary of God

God said it was time to lay you down to sleep. He promised your soul he would take. We never got a chance to say goodbye before you took flight to your home in the sky. You were on this earth where wealth was untold; yet humbly you sang, \"I'd rather have Jesus than Silver and Gold.\" Even though our heart aches to have you here, In Heaven with God is where you are. I feel your love and see your face so clear; I know you are never very far; because we carry you everyday deep in our hearts.

Missing you and loving you always

Grandma, Aunt Barbara, Aunt Cynthia, Torrie, Priscilla, Uncle Bonnie, Uncle Russell and the rest of the \"Moore Family\"

Our most precious niece who we only had a few precious moments with, but that we are eternally thankful for. After, listening to the wonderful testimonies by your fellow classmates from Seton Hall and friends from TN and PA, I quickly realized that the love of God that you emitted was so powerful that one only needed to be in your presence but a short while and know what it meant to be loved, as well as want to love and have you in their life. Thank you for being such an amazing light for our Father and God in such a short, but powerful, 19 years. We would love to still be experiencing life with you now, but we are eternally grateful that through Christ, we will get to do complete living with you for eternity one day. Well done! Uncle Reggie, Aunty Tina and McKenzie cousins.

Its been one year since I last saw you smile, or heard your laugh. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to endure. I miss your talent, I miss the times we had, I miss seeing you, I miss having you to talk to. And even though everday is hard I am going to make you proud. I love you Jess <3
