To begin, I would like to thank everyone for coming and sharing with us, the love and life of a very sweet young girl.  There is no doubt the loss of one so young is tragic for her family, her community and the future she will be forever denied on this Simworld.  I would like to thank you for the love and support you have shown us, Rosemary and I, in getting through this very difficult time.

Jilly, who was described as the “apple of my eye, like my very own Snow White with her rosy cheeks, blue eyes and black hair,” by her mother, was loved by her family and friends.  Not only for her easy-going personality but her ability to be silly as well.

Jilly the toddler, was quiet yet enjoyed the antics of her parents and her twin brother, whom she loved like he was apart of her.225

As children, the bond between them became stronger with Leo naming her Jillybean. Leo’s antics were always sure to make Jilly burst into fits of laughter, and nothing made Leo happier than seeing his twin laugh at his jokes.

As Jilly grew up, she could be described as precocious, well-mannered and a bit on the quiet side. “When she gets going (usually to defend Leo), she can be quite animated. She’s his partner in crime. The cover up; the silent partner. The witness who would swear he never start it. They are always in cahoots, those two.” Taken from several entries in Memphis’s journal.

Jilly was also a lover of music, beginning with the piano then later becoming quite accomplished on the drums.  She was not fond of art.

Her friends have described Jilly as loyal, kind and sweet with a true enthusiasm or support for the good things that happened in everyone’s lives.  “She was like our very own cheerleader who knew exactly when to cheer us on, or bring us down to earth when we had gone the wrong way.  She knew the rules and stuck to them and she kept us from trouble more than once!  With these qualities in mind, we know she would have made the best doctor, as she had hoped!”

There is nothing more heartbreaking than the death of a child. It is unfair that Jilly was taken away from us at only 17. But, here we are today with great sadness that we say goodbye to our beautiful Jilly.  We can only imagine from now on, she will be smiling down on us, until we meet her again.Jillywavebye2a

I invite everyone now, to stand and share
their favourite moment or memory of Jilly.
