|Let the memory of Jordy be with us forever|
"Jordy, Happy 20th Birthday, my precious child! I was very busy yesterday on your Birthday and could not get a post on your day. I know you understand, because you know my heart! But that "was always you," God blessed our family with a wonderful, beautiful, loving, caring angel name Jordan McCann in 1996! You were wise beyond your years and had the ability to love others and wrap them around your heart! I love you and miss you more than words can say. From my heart to yours, I love you! XXOO Aunt Wocky Dittle"
"Today you are 20, Thank You my angel for the 14 1/2 Happiest years of my life! Loving you and missing you every minute of every day, Thank you for watching over Mommy and Jenna, and delivering our new home, I know you love it here, I feel your spirit, here, from the first time I saw this place, I Love You Jordy!! I'll see your eyes in every sunset, my perfect girl. Until I hold you in my arms again, I will hold you in my heart, always."
"Happy Birthday my precious Angel! My only wish is to be with you again. I know you wish for the same thing. Keep watching over your Daddy and me. Pay special attention to him today because he has a harder time on your birthday than other days. Keep coming to see your Boo. Touch my heart once in awhile. I always know it's you. I miss you all the misses in the universe. One day soon I hope. Your Mommy"
"My precious goddaughter, Happy Birthday! I'm writing this with tears in my eyes but joy and love in my heart, I miss you so very much but know you are in a better place. I will always love you!"
"As your birthday approaches, I miss you even more. I look thru the pics on here, and start to cry. I miss you so much. It's nice out now and I think of the times we used to go around the neighborhood and talk. I miss you so much Jordan...."
"Jordy, I was in surgery on Dec 9th, but my heart was with you. I love you and miss you every day, I am thankful that I was blessed to be your Aunt and friend. I hope you are ready for us on earth, as I think Jesus is coming very soon to bring His children home. Kisses and hugs from me and Uncle Al! See you soon!"
"My beautiful Jordan. A large part of my heart stopped 5 years ago today when you couldn't stay with us any longer. There's not a day that goes by that I don't miss you and wish you were here to laugh with and love on. Jenna misses you being here with her, but I still think that you visit her and take care of her. Thank you for being the best daughter. My happy memories make every day a little easier. Your Mommy misses you and loves you forever."
"Missing you so much. It's been 5 years since you went to heaven and I still think of you every day. Until we see each other again know that I will always love and remember you my precious goddaughter."
"Jordy...... I Didn't get a chance to know you But I know you through your sister And your daddy Who work for my daddy You were taken from us too soon And only God knows why I know that you are beautiful angel watching over your family and friends Just wanted to let you know that you are forever in our hearts We all love you We live through your sister And see you Rest in peace my dear child Until we all meet again A beautiful Angel you are my sweet Jordan Always in our hearts and never forgotten <3"
"My first born and the best friend I ever had. Jordy, we miss you every hour of every day. I know you are watching over me and giving me hugs to get me through on the hard days like today. You were always the lover and peacemaker in the family. You are 19 today! Wow! I can see you now, zooming through Heaven with your hair blowing in the wind on that cherry blossom pink motorcycle! Mommy and Daddy are going to spend the day together, hanging out in your favorite place. I'll be thinking about you, feeling sad about the hard times, and laughing about the fun ones. Happy Birthday Little Me! I love you! I miss you. I'll be there to hold you in my arms again. Love, Mommy"
"Jordan you touched so many lives even though you were only here to short a time of your earthly life and ours. I knew you only briefly through my sister who will always love you. Many when they get older say they do not celebtate their bithday anymore. But todays remembrance of you and your birthday taught me always celebrate, always remember ones birthday is the celebration of a special gift from God. A life that touches others, memories made that hold special meanings to treasure. Some day in heaven we will meet again and celebrate a very special gift God gave all of us when you came into and left our lives. Happy birthday Jordan, thank you God for sharing this precious angel with us here on earth."

Sweetie I hope your mom didn't care but I placed a song on your site. The name of it is Precious Child."
"Jordy, So did you help Jesus blow out the candles on His birthday cake? So many people down here forget who the season is all about. Some even want to take His name off of the "holiday." I'm glad we know that Jesus is the reason for the season! I miss you, and I love you. Thanks for watching over us, I will see you again, my sweet niece, my sweet angel! xxoo Aunt Rocky - give pop hugs too!"

You fought such a hard fight, and we admire the strength and the loving legacy you have left in our hearts & minds 4ever. xxoo Aunt Rocky"

"I cannot believe it has already been a year since you've left us. You are missed every single day. I look at your picture on my board in my office and just smile. I miss you Jordan! I will never forget how you gave Ori and I such a hard time when we didn't play that stupid hand held game correctly! God Bless you and your family forever! Love you Jordan!!!"
"I can't believe you have been gone for a year!!! I tell Lily about you all of the time and we look at your pictures and smile. You were the best little cousin anyone could ask for. I am just sorry that I was not there as much as I should have been. I remember the first time I saw you and held you. You were the most beautiful baby and you grew to be such a beautiful young lady!!! I<3U!"

No words can heal the pain you are feeling and experiencing right now.Please know that you are all in my prayers and thoughts.I never met Jordan but I remember Joey and I being in Hopkins together when my daughter was fighting Leukemia and remember the love that beamed from him when he spoke of her.Take comfort in knowing that through our Lord you will see Jordan again one day."
"I've learned in life that you do not have to necessarily know someone personally for their life to impact yours! I am deeply sorrowful for your separation from Jordy. However, I celebrate the victory in Christ knowing that she has returned to God where she will suffer no more pain. May your family rest in the Peace of God which surpasses all understanding! Sending you all that there is...L*O*V*E"

"Joey and Family my prayers are with you and your family god has a very special angel ."
We have been friends for a very long time. The pain of losing a child is hard, but God is there with comfort. I only met Jordie a few times, but she was such a delight. We read together each time. I still remember her smiling face, God Bless.The music is so apropriate . The pictures delightful. She is beautiful. Joey, she is you."

"I always loved Jordan's sense of humor, attitude and her style! It was so neat how much she enjoyed everything Japanese. Every time I see anime, I think of her.
I will never forget her reading to me from her japanese-themed books at my desk, and explaining to me every detail in the books. :) She was a joy to be around.
She will always be loved and remembered on the PCRU."
"McCann Family - I enjoyed seeing pictures of Jordan on Facebook. She was always smiling. Having someone that you loved pass away is hard. Always remember the great times you had with her. She will always be around you. You will have bad and good days but she is now running and playing free with no pain in Heaven. She is your Guardian Angel."
"Hi Joey, I only know you from karaoke and never got to meet your daughter in person.....however, I know how special she was to you and many, and I feel like I knew her through you......I'm sure she was just wonderful....just like you are....God Bless your little angel who is now at peace....and I hope you can be also, knowing she's in a much better place, called Heaven, with her Heavenly Father."
"Jordan was not only my goddaughter but my best friend. Her constant smile and quick wit kept me going. She never complained about her many trials and tribulations caused by her disease.Everyone and anyone who ever met her fell in love with her and I will always be so proud of her. I love you Jordie Pie and I will never forget you!"
