"The sun is always shining
Though a cloud may hide the way,
The sunlight will return again
To brighten up the day
The sun returns each morning,
And though a storm is near
If we have faith and courage
The sun will soon appear.      Like the song says read the stories.Thank you! Eric.

She like to help others
I count it as her greatest pleasure
In life
To see a person free herself of the shadows which darken her
days.These shadows look so thick to her and weigh her down
and when.she finds they are shadows and she can see through them, walk through them and be again in the sun.She is enormously delighted.And I am afraid I am just as delighted as she is. Once again thank you Eric."

"Has anyone sang a song to you
In all your darkest hours have you heard me sing
Listen to me now

What's cheaper than free You and me
What's better than being alone going home

What does money not buy you and I.
Whats not to fill when love is real
Whats faster than a fast car a beating heart

Whats deeper than a deep well
The love into which I fell
More important than freedom
Being needed

More exciting than high fashion
High passion
What's warmer than a sun- drenched land
Your hand

What's brighter than a smile
YOU CHILD! You child you child

Jose once said to us
Ron is Miki's " Forest Gump"

Thank You! Mik for giving me
The Joy! of being needed.

As the rain come's down
There's no pain now and there's no doubt
Peas and carrots " Will meet again!

Mik you are my friend from yesterday, today, tomorrow
And in Always Will Be! - Eric thank you!   For creating this site where I can come and talk and be with my friend. "Your mother. Whoes Love and Admiration for her child. Is Eternal  ,  " Mom"  Carol Miki Jada    The love.       "ER"  Comes with You."

"Mikster Yesterday, today, tommorow, and ALWAYS!

The world is so empty if one thinks only
of mountains, rivers,and cities;
But to know someone who shares
Her As- Is- ness with me in what we call present time
Is a creation of the, Brightness Flower In this Mans Life!

It's  the times we laugh so hard we can't help but cry
It's all the inside jokes and remember whens.
Reasons of two friends who became best friends.  And continue to be!"

"What is true for you is what you have observed yourself
And when you lose that you have lost ever thing

What is personal integrity?
Personal integrity is knowing what you know-
What you know is what you know-
And to have the courage to know and say what you have observed
And that is integrity.
And there is no other integrity

Of course we can talk about honor,truth,all these things,
These esoteric terms.
But I think they will all be covered very well
If what we really observed was what we observed,
That we took care to observe what we were observing,
That we always observed to observe.

And not necessarily maintaining a skeptical attitude,
A critical attitude, or an open mind.
But certainly maintaining sufficient personal integrity
And sufficient personal belief and confidence in self
And courage that we can observe what we observe
And say what we have observed.

Nothing is true for you. Unless you have observed it. And it is true according to your observation. That is all. Thank you! Mik for sharing these words with me. Like the song states! I know God exits " I held her in my arms! Untill we meet again Mik  " I Love You Still!  I always have! I always Will!  "Good Night Sweet dreams Princess""

"Mikki, I'll never forget the time that Eric and I were just 15-16 years old. We had tickets to see Anthrax and Ozzy @ Mcknickles Arena in Denver. We wanted to see that show bad!! Would have never went to the concert if Mikki didn't talk Steve into a night out of town and drive us up there. So they hung out in Denver till the concert was over and then picked us up.I remember thinking to myself "Man lue's mom is AWSOME!!! I DONT THINK I'VE HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD TOO MANY TIMES.BUT THAT, WAS DEFINETLY ONE OF THEM. Keep your head up Hommie. Who knows what lies out there when we pass. But if there is something wonderfull and beautiful waiting. Mikki is defenitly there!!!!"

"I posted my thoughts on your FB site, Eric, along with a pic of a jean jacket your mom embroidered for me in 1974, with her signature frogs. I knew your mom since high school. Then the three of us shared years together as a family, in Buffalo then Florida and finally Colorado. Great memories! As I mentioned on FB, it's possible to live a full life even though it may not be a long life. It's quality-not quantity, that counts. Your mom did have that special quality. You were always the love of her life-and rightly so! Let me know if there is anything I can do. You are in my prayers with love. You are a good son and put the 'sonshine' in her life. We are all blessed more to have known her."

"I met Mikki when I was just 17 years old, I actually went to school with her sister Bonnie but ended up becoming very close to Mik. Our birthdays were one week apart, mine being on the 30th of January. One year she made me this beautiful hand embroidered mushroom with little frogs all around it on a piece of jean fabric and dated it, it was 1978. I still have it and the hand made cards she would send me from Colorado after she moved there in 1980. I have many many good memories of her, Bill, Bonnie and Eric when he was just a little guy. My heart is broken for the whole Jada family for this most devastating loss :("
