A Letter from Jessica's Parents.

Saturday, April 16, 2011

*Please go and send a letter of encouragement to our sister and friend. Times like these are when we need to band together the most and support the women around us. She needs us now more then ever, so lets not let her down.*

To all the wonderful people who responded to Jessica on her "Misadventures 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 afterwords.  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 hard copy.

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:

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 the word spread.....
Thanks again to all you,
  --  From the parents of Jessica....Tom in NM and now Sue in SC

Thanks for posting this. I saw it on Annoyed Army Wife's blog too. I want to write, but I feel like it's going to turn into a novel. I'm so glad so many people are reaching out to her.
