So my story is that when Sheyenne was in the hospital (on one of her many stays) that while we were visiting she said”mamabear I wish you would come have lunch at my school with me one day because you are so cool” and I was like “I know,right!” How many ( any of you that know me knows I do not do that “G”word) have had your teenager invite you to ther school to have lunch with them and their friends? What an honor and how sad it never happened even though we had talked about a date that she never got to see

Hey Sheyenne... this is a bittersweet day for everyone as we have come upon the day that marks one year since you went home to be with Jesus and it still does not seem real. I noticed that you have had over 4000 views and that sure is a testimony to the way you lead your life here on earth. We wish you were here but we understand how merciful God was to release you from all of your pain and for that we understand and thank Him for loving you that much to bring you home to be forever free and happy. We will see you again and that is God's promise to us for comfort.

Such a beautiful young lady with a heart full of laughter and a contagious smile. I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know her so many years ago in sixth grade. As her math teacher, I saw her light up the classroom with her beautiful smile! I'm praying for your sweet family and friends. God works in such mysterious ways but His work is so good! You showed such love and kindness to this world. Thank you for making me a better person! Much love and many prayers. Mrs. Sanders

You are such a beautiful young lady, inside and out, God knew this world was growing to ugly for you and took you to his wonderful world that he promised you. You was taken too soon, but I am so very thankful to know that you believed in God and you have went to a better place. So many young people today are to naïve to know the truth. I know my mother was waiting to give you a hug, she loved you. Proud of you, please send love and support to help your family though this, I know they will need it now more that ever without you their world will never be the same.

god saw you was getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered "come to me" with tearful eyes we watched you. And saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly. We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating. Hard working hands at rest. Gob broke our hearts to prove to us. He only takes the best.

I can remember as kids Sheyenne, Sierra, Ashley and I would spend many days playing together. There are plenty of pictures of us all in the living room with smiles on our faces. My most recent memory was shopping for my bridesmaids dresses. Jamie, Jodye, Sheyenne and a couple others went. Jodye and Sheyenne had the whole store laughing when Jodye struggled go get into her spanks and Sheyenne went in to help. All we could hear outside was the constant laughing and comments of I don't think this is right. About 10 minutes later Jodye and Sheyenne walked out, all of us staring and the two of them just laughing so hard they were almost crying.
I want to say to my sister, I love you Jamie and to see you hurt truly breaks my heart. As a sister, I wish there was more I could do. You have a strong faith and you have that as well as your family to lean on in these times. Keep your sight on God and He will guide you. I love you Jamie.

I remember the last time all us girls got together and spent the night at Jamie's house us girls got together and sang some crazy random songs. And at gatlinburg when we all climbed a tall mountain. Many memories were made. Shy is gone to her home in heaven and surely will be missed but never forgotten. Love you sheyenne. ❤️❤️ -Kylee
