Jazz, I’ve been wanting to write something since I first heard, but haven’t been able to find the words. We were so shocked and saddened to hear about this, and I still can’t believe it. Hanging out with you has always been so much fun, you’ve always been so friendly and welcoming, and I won’t forget your enthusiasm and ability to keep the party going putting us to shame! It was awesome to get to know you last year in NYC, and especially over the summer. We’ll all miss you, RIP x x x x – Jessica

    Jazz, even though i knew you thru my sister, i did get the chance to speak to you a few times. I always admired your intelligence and your strength of character. Its sad to see you gone so young. Everyone has a mission here in life and you lived yours to the fullest. Thats the only way I can make sense of this horrible tradgedy. If your listening, please take care you your loved ones from where you are and comfort them during this difficult time. You are in my prayers and may God, in whatever form you know it to be, keep you close.

    It’s taken me a while to face this page, and to read all the lovely comments. It’s no surprise that so many people cared about you, you (annoyingly) had that way about you! I miss you. I miss you every day.
    I remember being 14 and telling you that I wanted to get my first tattoo. Not only did I just think it was cool, but I wanted to be more like you too. You didn’t judge me, even if my ideas were stupid. You didn’t tell mom that her youngest was getting permanent ink on her. And you even yelled at your then-boyfriend when he accidentally spilled the beans in front of mom (that was a dramatic afternoon)!
    You were helpful and honest, but you treated me like an adult. All that adule treatment crumbled when I lay on the table and the needle went in. The artist was insensitive and even seemed to like hurting me. You comforted me and asked me if I wanted to stop or take a break. The artist was super irritated and you ignored her and even shoot her a few nasty looks. I remember being so upset that the artist was a jerk and that it was hurting so much, but it was the first time I truly appreciated you. I was always vocal about sticking up for you, and I guess you were more discrete. I needed to see it, and I did that day. Everytime thereafter, when I’ve been inked, I’ve thought of you and that moment.
    Now I’m at a point where I’m going to get a memorial piece done in your memory. I am looking forward to having one of our favourite artists at one of our favourite shops have the honour of doing your memorial piece. And although I’m looking forward to this, I am so heart-broken that you won’t be with me. I’d do anything to have a sister-fight with you. I’d give the rest of my life if it meant yelling at you to hurry up and get out of the shower. I’d love to roll my eyes while you rolled your cigarette and made us late for whatever it was we were up to. But alas, I cannot.
    I am hoping to feel your presence on Saturday when the needle goes in. You are always in my heart, but I’ll especially need you on Saturday monkey. I’ll remember when you held my hand and I’ll remember that maternal look you gave me when you saw me in pain. I’m forever grateful that you were my sister, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Love you loads and miss you madly,
