There are no words that I can give that will heal what your hearts desire most and that is to have her physically next to you, the chance to tell her all that you thought to say but never had the chance. What I can say is that she does see your pain and she would not want that for you. She can now hear your silent thoughts and she adorse them. She will for always live within your heart and soul.. I share with you in these days and the days to come all the strenght I have to give so that you can keep going moving forward to the dreams you have, to keep alive what inspires you. All while loving her with every step you take. My your courage be whide and your hearts be full of her spirit. I love you all, Chris

My deepest sympathy for the family. My heart aches for you all. I new Jodi for a few year's. She always had a smile that would light up room. She had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. She will be truly missed never forgotten and forever loved. She always spoke of her boys. She truly loved her family. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
My condolences Amy Bruno
