In memory of my friend Jesi Young, I dedicate this bouquet. I happened to photograph it the day before she left us, the day the bad news came.

Jesi spoke to me only through a chat window. But it was enough to get to know her.

She was bubbly and crazy in love and lived life recklessly, throwing all inhibition to the wind. She knew how to let down her hair, to enjoy every moment of every day.

Let us not forget her "do what you love" spirit.

She encouraged others with her words, laying on the love thick, gluing us all together in paper mache, we the torn papers who often felt insignificant. She crafted us into something beautiful.

Let us improvise with creativity to make even the worst moments in life gleam with color and light.

She was a beautiful person and true to herself.

I will miss you. (who's gonna tell me what E-J says and does when he's in the other room?)

I never got the chance to speak with her, through chat or otherwise, but I could tell from her writing that she was an incredible person.
