I'll always remember Jodi as a kind, thoughtful girl. I pray for God's strength for your family through this difficult time.

Jodi was an amazing woman. I first met Nick, Jodi, and Stella because they were my grandparents neighbors. My grandparents always spoke so highly of Jodi and I know it always made their days better when she would stop in to visit. Jodi was always looking after them, and I will forever be grateful. Once they moved into the nursing home, Jodi and Stella would make regular visits to them. The last picture I have of them was from Jodi when she brought them ice cream cones to enjoy. She was the embodiment of Matthew 22 37:39. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind and love thy neighbor as thy self. I am blessed to have known Jodi and she will always hold a special place in my heart. I pray for comfort and strength for Nick and Stella and all of Jodi’s family during this time.
