My dear Jessica, The moment that you left us, our heart was split in two; one side filled with memories, and the other side died with you. I often lay awake at nights when the world is fast asleep, and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheek. Remembering you is easy, I do it every day; but missing you is a heartache that never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts and there you will remain. You see, life must go on without you, but it will never be the same. Always you will be a part of us. We miss you like crazy.

            JESSICA DORANE KIMBERLY GILZENE
              Tribute from the Morris’ Family
The First time I met Jessica!! She was just a few months old. I came home to our family home in Bog Walk St. Catherine and saw a beautiful baby girl playing on the bed. I asked, “Whose baby is this?’ At the sound of my voice, she turned her head towards me and looked up at me with those big, beautiful eyes, and gave me the most beautiful smile I have ever seen. I fell in love with her then joining the rest of my family. Jessica became the bright light in our hearts and home from that day forward.

I remember the demanding little girl she was. She would tell you what she wanted and would not stop until she gets it. I remember how getting her dressed for school in the mornings was a chore for Auntie Tit. Her Auntie Tit would have to serenade her in the bathroom for as long as it takes to get her ready for school. You could hear Jessica saying “Again!!,” meaning that Tit should continue singing.

I remember on her fifth birthday; she demanded five birthday cakes-one for each year. Did she get it? Of course! She did. She sat there beaming, and she did eat a piece of each cake.

I remember driving with Jessica in the back seat of my car. When she wants us to go faster or pass the other vehicles on the road, she would shout from the back seat, “Skip them, Auntie, Skip them.” There was never a dull moment with Jessica around.

Jessica loved dressing up and looking pretty (not just now). I remember when she was about five or six years old at the time of this story. I took her to spend the weekend with me in Kingston, and she told me she wanted to go to Devon House for ice cream. Well, she demanded that, so yes, we went. I dressed her first then readied myself. She decided she was not yet fully dressed; something was missing. So, while I was getting dressed, she decided to do her make-up. You should have seen her!! To cut a long story short, we went to Devon House, and she was the center of attention.

These are just some of the many memories we have of her. Jessica was PURE JOY!! In the short span of her life, she left some deep impressions on many lives. We may not understand why, but we are thankful for the time the Lord lent her to us. She came in as a bright light, illuminating everything around her, even shining through the smokes of life. The “smokes” or setbacks she faced in life made her shine brighter, made her more beautiful. We give thanks for the time we had to experience the light and smell the sweet rose.

Thank you, Verma, for sharing this beautiful Angel with us. We consider it a great privilege and pleasure to have been a part of her life. Be strong, Verma; we are here for you. Just remember that your baby girl brought joy to many.

The memories of Jessica will permanently be etched in the annals of our hearts as we have a treasure trove of memories. Jess was full of life, full of love, full of laughter. That brilliant smile and the sparkle of her eyes will remain with us always. Jessica will shine in our hearts forever!

Love always from your Auntie Tit, Grandma Morris, Auntie Sherill, Annie, Susan, and June. Your uncles Pal, Mantie, and Can and your many cousins in the Morris’/Thompsons' Family in Jamaica, Canada, United States, and England.

REST IN PEACE, OUR BABY GIRL!! WE WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER!!

My sweet girl Jessica. I remember seeing you just a little over a year ago when I visited In Florida. When you came and picked me up, and when you saw me, the way how your eyes lighted up and the smile, oh my baby, the way you hugged me, I can still feel your arms around me now. We did not spend much time together, as you had to work, but we spoke on the phone everyday until I returned to Jamaica. Words cannot explain how much I love you and is going to miss you my darling niece. You will forever be in my heart. You left all of us so broken hearted, but we are going to take comfort in knowing that you are resting safe in the arm of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. SLEEP IN PEACE my baby girl. Love forever Auntie Annie.

Every morning I check your page to write a tribute and I just can’t do it fam. I still don’t fully believe you’re gone. This is just crazy to me. I’m not prepared to see you in a casket today. Sometimes I feel like I’m going to lose my BBC mind if I really think about this deeply. We shared a lot of great times together. I remember when you took aunty radio to the room and you always playing some old school hip hop and all I wanted to listen was Kartel. We would fall asleep with it on and aunty would come and turn it off. The good times we had walking to river , eating jackfruit and mango at the back. You were the life of the party so I know you having a good time in heaven. Don’t be too loud for God . You are forever in my heart Jessica, you are loved by so many ❤️❤️❤️

My darling Jessica, I remember the moment I fell in love with you. You were just a few months old, I came home one day to my family home in Bog Walk and saw this beautiful little girl sitting on the bed playing. I asked “whose baby is this?”. At the sound of my voice you turned your head towards me, looked up at me with those big beautiful eyes and gave the most beautiful smile I have ever seen. That was the beginning of our story as a family. You found your second family, and we found a daughter and a niece. You are many things to us Jessica. We watched you grow into this beautiful young lady you loved life and did her best to live it to the fullest. We do not know WHY but the LORD knows.

Jessica, we loved you then, we love you now and we will always love you.

REST WELL MY LOVE!!

Always in my heart. Your Auntie Pam!!
