Jamie Rae Kersey

A good friend, Jamie, passed away suddenly very early Monday morning. I didn't find out until I saw her MySpace page and folks were leaving comments about her passing. She was only 35. It appears she had some type of heart problem. I just can't believe she is gone. We used to work together, and always had so much fun. I'll always remember her giant Diet Coke she had every morning on her desk. She was so full of life, and she lived it to the fullest. I'm so sorry hers was just too short. Her funeral is tomorrow in Waco. I am thinking of going and I will have to take Emma too. I just really want to say goodbye.

Jamie, you were a great friend, a true kindred spirit. I will miss you so much. I know you're up in the stars with God now. Please look down on us sometimes, and know how much we love and miss you.

I did it! I just gave my 2 week notice at work! It was really hard, I was very unsure how my boss would react, but it went ok. She was very supportive and understanding that I want to stay at home with Emma. So April 18th is my last day with the State Preservation Board. After 7 years, it's going to be hard to say goodbye to everyone. But I am so happy in my decision, I know it is the right thing for Emma, and for our family.
