"I miss being Big Jill to Little Jill. I miss hearing you call me that. I miss your smile and laugh, just like I missed Cathi's. Hard to fathom that you, Cathi, and Wayne are all gone, but glad that you are together and at peace. Love to you all, Big Jill"

"It seems like forever, dear friend, since I last hugged you. Was just looking at pictures of you yesterday...I look at your photos and think about you often; wondering how you are, missing you...I love you and know you're complete with the rest of your family by your side as well as God. I'll see you again someday - save me a spot! I love you!"

"Missing you and loving you always, sweet Jill. Wish we could hear your laugh and hug you tight. It doesn't seem possible that it's been three years since you joined everyone in Heaven. There is still a hole in this world that can never be filled, but I know we'll see you again some day. I love you!"

"We miss you so much, Jill.  You should have been a part of Matt's wedding.  Your picture just wasn't enough.  I see you on the Norman Rockwell plate that was supposed to go to you when we died.  You weren't supposed to go first.  Tell Jesus and your mom, hi.  Much love, Aunt B"

"Hello Kitty is EVERYWHERE this year!I feel your presence everytime I see a display. It's like a jolt of Jill reminding us that she is  always with us- in our memories, hearts, and Hello Kitty, of course.
The polar bears are out, as well as the Grinch slippers.
Merry Christmas, Jill from Big Jill & Mike"

"I was looking through old pictures this morning and just watched a Private Practice episode all about grieving.  Just made me realize how much I truly miss you.  I wish I could hear your infectious laughter just one more time - I love you and miss you so much, Jill. xoxo"

"Oh Jill, I am so sorry to hear this.  You are such an amazing girl, and so glad you are with your mom now.  We hung out a lot in middle school and high school and you were such a great friend-funny, happy, and always so fun to be with.  We ate many meals together at El Fenix and laughed a ton.  I have thought of you many times since high school and wished I could reconnect with you. XOXO"

"I was so deeply saddened to hear of Jill's passing. We were close in highschool and lost touch shortly after but she's the kind of girl you don't forget.Charming, fun, and so funny, she made friends easily and people always wanted to be around her.She had a big heart.I will always remember Jill with fondness and good memories.It gives me peace to think of her with her reunited with her mom"

"Thinking about you, pretty lady. It stops me dead in my tracks when I see someone with even a hint of your glistening eyes or smiling face.  It breaks my heart that it's not you, but I cherish those moments when I think, just for a second, that I see you.  I don't often let myself focus on the fact that you're gone because I know you're always with us, but man do I miss you.  All my love"

"...God has a funny way of helping us to work through things, and Jill, I have to tell you that I have been blessed with a boss who not only looks like you, but has your same quirky attitude and huge, huge heart.  I know she is not you, but I sure do appreciate thinking of you every time I am with her.  I love you dearly and hope you had a wonderful 35th birthday. Miss you forever..."

"Where to begin?  I didn't write on here on your birthday last week because it was just too hard.  I think it's easier for me to pretend I'm just not seeing you because you're out of town, not because you're up in Heaven.  I think of you every single day and smile when I picture your face and your laugh.  I miss you so much that it hurts, but I am so thankful that you helped me to become me"

"Exactly my point - I am forced to simplify my thoughts - and that's not an option I am comfortable with when thinking of you...I also haven't written bc honestly Jill - I am in denial...I know you're gone, but haven't yet accepted it, or allowed my heart to feel it...Please know I love you, and I miss you dear friend, and I'm so proud of you. I pray you're enjoying your bday with your mom!"

"Happy birthday to one of the best people I've ever known! I love you tremendously and miss you desperately...I think of you often, daily, even hourly...thru songs on the radio to cherry jelly candies i see in the store...I haven't written on here bc I fear I would write a book...for nothing will justify the thoughts I have for you, of you...especially forced abbreviated words on here..."

"Your birth was a miracle in itself and a blessing. I loved our birthday luncheons together, usually at El Fenix, and I will miss them. I always thought that maybe people would think you were my daughter and that made me proud. I think I will eat Mexican food today in honor of you!
Happy B-day!  
Love, Big Jill"

"Just was thinking about you yesterday and wanted you to know we all miss you every single day. I wish I could remember the song we used to bang on your console to, but I know we'll get to do it again one day. I love you, Jill! <3"

Rest in pease Jill, we will miss you."

"Dear Jill, I watched u grow up with ur spunkiness & beautiful red hair_ when we would go out, I pretended u were our child cuz u looked like me. I remember when grandpa Herman gave you a dollar & u xeroxed it. He laughed about it till the day he died. I know the dreams u had for ur future that now will never be. U loved the Lord & I know you're with Cathi  now. Luv u forever, Aunt B"

"Jill, I can remember having such a great time one Summer when I lived in Plano. Motorcycle rides..you and those darn flip flops, How much you loved "Hello Kitty" and how much Cortney loved you as a best friend. I enjoyed hearing the stories you two would tell of growing up together. I fondly remember your sweet smile and laugh. You will be truly missed!!"

"I can still see your smile and hear your one of a kind laugh. You have touched my life.  i had fun working with you.  You will be missed honey......"

"" I remember your laugh also, Jill, and told you many times that it was like hearing your mom laugh again. It was a giggle-laugh full of silliness and mischief. I heard that laugh recently when I told you my neighbor had a "Hello Kitty" Volkswagon. I can see you and Cathi together now acting silly, giggling... Mike and I will continue the Grinch slipper tradition just for you. We love you!"

"You and Heather had an outfit that matched and I was SO jealous...It was a white button down shirt and shorts...it had black lines on it with many different colored spots throughout...you guys we 'so' cool to me...I think it was esprit...I know I have a picture of it somewhere."

This tribute was added by Heather Smith on 27th March 2012

"Jill, I don't know where to begin.  You, Cortney and I were inseparable for so long.  Swimming in the pool, building a "fort" in the alleyway behind our houses, listening to really horrible songs- "Buttermilk Bisquits!" and years upon years of memories.  I will miss your goofy smile, silly laugh and huge heart.  I love you forever, sister & friend."

"Jill, you were my third sister. When I think about any of my childhood memories, you're there with that infectious laugh and beautiful smile. I am so sad that you are not here with us anymore, but I cherish the times we shared and I will never forget them. I miss you dearly and I love you even more so. May you rest in peace, sweet angel. Xoxo"

"You were my best friend from the day we met. From the times we spent watching the Breakfast Club to the times we enjoyed at College Station. You're with me always. Thanks for the fun times we had and all the sad times we made it through together as well. We had 'courage' together, and always will. I love you dear friend..."
