Jesi, I apologize if this fails to do you justice. When I think of what little I know of you, from your writing and from comments of yours I’ve read, three things spring to mind.

A passion for life in all it’s forms.

Joy, most likely connected to your passion. I can’t define it more than that, but it is there.

And devotion. You to Joe, and Joe to you, in equal measures.

And when I think of you, it’s the last that makes me smile the most. You have something that most people never feel as intensely as I sense the two of you share.

And it is because of that passion, that joy, that devotion, that you will never truly be gone. You’ve touch all of us here with them, and you are, now and forever, a part of us.
