Jessica's LAUGHTER & LOVE IS ETCHED IN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS!
Organized by: David Johnson
Jessica Lucas was an amazing person whose 11 year battle with cancer came to an end not long ago. She and her first dog Luna, and then Polo(pictured) enjoyed Piedmont Park daily! In loving tribute, her friends would like to purchase a commemorative bench for the park in her honour. Upon her passing her dear friend Tommy shared 11 lessons learned from Jessica.... It began with these words which I believe accurately frame her life in a very special way ....." Those of us who knew Jessica Lucas have her indelibly etched in our hearts and minds. The right words are elusive, with so much to say, yet silence and stillness seeming like the holiest of responses. But Jess evoked too much joy, gave us too many stories for us to sing of her legacy with only somber tones. In fact, such gloomy behavior would likely frustrate her, so rather than eulogize, she’d invite us to focus on all there is to celebrate. It’s a hard response to choose because, perhaps somewhat selfishly, we simply miss our friend. We’ve earned the tears, and yet, we know laughter and love is what Jess wants us to carry with us from the steps of her journey."
We will love and miss our Jess forever!
