My soul is eased by music. When I meet another Soul that is finding comfort in the music, I get stoked to know them. I was blessed to meet my dancing Soul sister / on the rail dancer, Jessica. She was a pleasure to speak with, to look at, and to dance with!
I met her at Otus supply in Ferndale, Michigan. We got to see several shows in the same place, and enjoyed dancing on the rail.
I spent a weekend in Kalamazoo, Michigan this past June. Green sky blue grass plays a 3 day run at Bell’s brewery. The show was awesome. I saw Jessica there. She was wearing a fun outfit and looked so beautiful. As I saw her from a distance at first, I had to take the time to tell all the people I was standing with, “that is one of the most beautiful souls I have ever met”…I then saw her and we had our last words. I told her what I just told all the people I was standing with (none of them I knew by name). She gave me a hug, and said thank you, we spoke for a moment, and then went on….I really thought I would see her dancing that night. I did not.
The next thing I heard on Saturday was that she passed away that morning. So many people were crying and in shock. We lost a good one. The band played some tribute songs to her. It was heart felt. We all had tears.
Jessica leaves behind her son. This touches my soul. Being that my 2 son’s lost their Dad 4 years ago, I know her sons life will be way more of a challenge. The grief will be something to handle forever.
I would like to do something for her son. Not just today but forever. For starters I made some glass to be raffled off. The money goes to her son. I was commissioned to make a few pieces for this raffle, this is on facebook. You can get to it in the greensky camper group. Message me if this interests you. I also made a couple on my own that I will auction off on social media toward the end of July/beginning of August.

The bead with the white dress in front of the rail is her as an Angel in her favorite place. This was inspired by the Gentleman that commissioned the piece. Her favorite color is purple. So I made a bead with her soul Gesture on there in purple. I also made a bead with souls dancing within, and Jessica is in her fun outfit from the last time I saw her. Short red skirt, black tights, and I gave her a white shirt because she is an Angel now. (I believe she was really wearing a black shirt) One other piece has her on the rail with a purple dress. All of these are made with love, to celebrate a life lost too soon. Peace and Love to all!
