Spreading the Word

Jessica is still in our thoughts, our hearts and our prayers. Let’s let her know it.
 
On Friday I, along with many others, received this email message from Jessica’s parents on how we can show our support:
 
To all the wonderful people who responded to Jessica on her “{Mis}Adventures of an Army Wife” blog,
 
Tom and I want to thank all of you for the kind words you have posted on Jessica’s blog.  Jessica is currently in the hospital for an unknown length of stay and will require continued therapy afterwards.  I was able to visit with her for about 1 1/2 hours on Thursday, 14 April, and she is starting to realize her actions last week as well as the events that led to her depression and suicide attempt.  I did print out all your comments from her blog and was able to give her a hardcopy.
 
One of Jessica’s friends had a great idea that Tom and I are following up on….an Easter Basket filled with notes and cards of encouragement, empathy, stories, understanding or good ‘ole humor!  If we could be so bold to the virtual community, we would like to ask you to send your thoughts, notes, cards, etc. to the P.O. Box below that we have now established:
 
Jessica
P.O. Box 292138
Columbia, SC  29229
 
I will gather them into an Easter Basket of Cheer for Jessica this week to continue to let her know she is not alone nor are the events she experienced isolated to just her. 
 
Please do not send gifts or money…just your words of encouragement and prayers.
 
Please let our request spread…
I hope you’ll send a card, a note, a letter or even a postcard. I know it can be hard to know what to say, but I think that in this case it is truly the thought that counts.
 
Pass it on!
