There are no words that I could say that could compare to the beautiful words of that poem! I too lost a daughter, but I only had her for the nine months she was being formed, so I know nothing of her life except I feel that special cord from her to my heart also. I am so very sorry for your loss, but after reading that obituary, I can tell you and your daughter had a special bond that can never be taken from you. Cherish her memory, as I know you will and rest assured you have many many people praying for you and for Jerika in heaven. Although I have never met you, I feel your loss very deeply. God Bless you and all your and Jerika's family and God Bless Jerika in heaven!

May Jerika's spirit always be near. Jerika obviously touched so many lives on her short time on earth. With that, I can only imagine her heaven being every part of exquisite ! To the loved ones left behind... She will return in your dreams and you will hear her in the whispers in the trees. God bless you all and may you find comfort in granting Jerika's wishes. I do believe that she was an angel sent from up above, to teach compassion and love.
