A Loss for the SOS Crew

The design team of Shopping Our Stash are so very sad to have lost one of our own.

Jessi fought a very long and very courageous battle.

She stayed strong long after most of us would have given up. 

She kept smiling long after many of us would have cried.

Today while we are devastated for her family and heartbroken for the amazing soul this world has lost, we take some comfort in knowing that her suffering has ended and her journey continues on.

We send all the love and many hugs to Rob, Connor and Riley and to all of Jessi's family and friends for their loss.

If you knew Jessi at all, you knew that she had a beautiful and loving heart and a wicked sense of humour.

We will miss her laugh, her smile, her snarkiness.

Jessi had a way of bringing people together, and is in fact the reason that many of the members of the design team are here, because Jessi asked us and encouraged us.

Please spend a moment today remembering Jessi, sending loving thoughts, vibes and comfort to her family and friends.

In our hearts always and forever.

My prayers are with her family in the loss of this beautiful and courageous lady.
I wish I joined this team sooner just so I could have enjoyed her beautiful disposition and, like Donna said, "wicked sense of humor" longer.
All of us who knew her, however briefly, will remember her always.
Thank you Donna for this beautiful post about Jessi.

This is a sad and tragic loss. I didn't know. She was so young and beautiful. There aren't adequate words to say how sorry I am for her family and everyone who loved her.

I'm so sad to hear of Jessi's passing. I followed her blog for a long time and still have some of those beautiful hand-crocheted medallions she sent me so long ago. I remember her edgy sense of humor and her caring, giving ways and she was truly "one crafty momma" as she called herself. RIP to dear Jessi, if any good came of this it's that her soul can finally rest in peace.

Sleep on dear Jessi and take your rest
We'll miss you most, who knew you best.
In silence you suffered, with patience you bore,
till G-d took you home, to suffer no more!
