Our dearest Jada (aka on fb as Katherinejada Smith) walked into the forest yesterday just after noon on 10/28/17. Her passing was sudden and unexpected, taking the family and all of her beloved community by surprise. None of us were ready, none of us can believe she is gone. It feels unreal. She was a lifeforce and a lifegiver. This unexpected loss cuts us deeply. Many have reached out to ask how they can help and contribute so her children and all the family can be held up at this time. We love and appreciate everyone who loved her and has shared memories, please keep doing so - they are holding us up in this storm. We know you folks are crying with us and we are comforted by your prayers.
Proceeds will help with all the families needs at this time. Gunalcheesh, Haw.aa, for all who are lifting us up with love, prayer, memories, food, visiting, photos and videos of her, travel, and/or financial support.
Jada with her grandson Shawaan, doing what they loved the most, laughing together, especially at Shawaan's crazy antics. Anything to make his grandma laugh.
