Jessica Shelby Tribute

Jessica Shelby Tribute
Most of you know that I lost my beautiful granddaughter, Jessica Shelby, in January. The loss was devastating for all of us, especially her son, O’Ryan and her husband, Fred. Jessica brought so much to my life and to the lives of everyone she met; but, there was a special bond between Jessie and me, a very personal one.
What brought about that bond is important only to the two of us but it didn’t end with her death. Several days after her passing, I had finally cried myself to sleep only to wake up around 2 a.m. to the sound of music.
“Where in the world is that music coming from?”, I asked myself. Listening to the soft sound, I realized it was Christmas music.
“OK”, I thought, “this is weird. The radio is not on. The tv is off and the windows are closed, so what’s happening?”
I got out of bed and walked toward the sound. It was coming from a music box that sat on my dresser for years and has not been played in all that time. I stood and listened until the music stopped and knew it was from Jessica.
“Thank you so much”, I said. “I miss you so much and I love you so much. Can you play it just once more?”
I crawled back into bed and waited. The music started up once more and played to the end. I thanked Jessie again for the blessing and we said our own goodbyes.
I am truly blessed to have had the time with Jessica that I had and know that she is watching over all of us because that’s just who she is.
Thank you to all of my followers for allowing me to share this with you.
