With Love, from Renee:
Seven years ago I prayed that someone would come along that would be worthy enough for my girlfriend's love. It seemed like an insurmountable task…who could be worthy enough of such a wonderful person like my Jessica? Needless to say, my expectations were very high...and rightfully so. Jessica and I were away for a girl's weekend and I remember her telling me about this guy Ehren that she met. There was an excitement in her voice that I never heard before! Something hit me and I instantly knew this was it! I can still feel that excitement as I write this. She was so happy. I was so happy for my friend. I remember thanking God for this for her. Then I got to meet this Ehren guy....first of all, let's talk about his striking good looks, Wow! I thought, good for you, Jess...he was just her type in every way. But to get to witness them together was just the best. They complimented each other in every way.
Time went by and Ehren got down on his knee and proposed. Jessica happily accepted. We all celebrated New Year’s Eve night; not only the joining of Ehren and Jessica, but also the joining of their sons, Branden and Noah. She was such a beautiful bride, and he as equally handsome.
As time goes by, we all learn more about each other. Jessica learned and experienced and fell so hard in love with all that was Ehren Jones. We all have different sides to ourselves; Ehren was no different. He fought with the dark side to him that some of you may be aware of, and some of you may not. The dark side I speak of is severe depression. Ehren dealt and fought with the ugliness of this deep depression with Jess right along side of him. The depression was not just Ehren's; Jess took it on, too. Of course she did...Jessica did as only Jessica would do. She fully accepted the challenge and fought with her heart and soul for Ehren.
The darkness grew too dark. The fight proved to be too strong. On October 7, Ehren did the unimaginable. He took his life, leaving his friends and family in absolute shambles. Jessica fought for so long and so hard with Noah right by her side.
At this time, we request all of us come together in support of Jessica in every way we can. Spiritually, that God gives her comfort, knowing that she did everything that she could for Ehren. Financially; Jessica and Ehren shared the same dream of owning their own management company with the hopes of helping others with their endeavors. This dream started to take off approximately a year ago. Things were taking off for a while; however, being how dehabilitating depression and medical bills associated with it are, this dream suffered along with their finances.
Life as Jessica knew it shattered in an instant. The road that lies ahead of her will be unimaginable and unbearable...both emotionally and financially.
Let's all come together...any amount will be graciously appreciated. It takes a village.
