to Jared... from Jen
I'm saddened that I never had
a chance to know you because I know how important it is to have a real
friend. Your mothers website brings me hope that someone cares about
me as much as she does you.
If you can hear me or read
this I want you to know that you're in my thoughts. I too feel great
emotional pain and depression and seriously think of hurting myself, but
I just can't help but feel scared.
Jared, will you be my friend?
I know it's silly of me to be asking that, but I believe that it's never
too late to make a friend. I hope one day I can thank your mother
for making your passing a web-wide offering because for the first time
in my life I am feeling alive. I cry as I write this because I fear
myself, but actually hope I survive my depressing thoughts before it's
Jared I hope you're in a happy,
safe place. I hope your life above is 100 times better than the life
you lived here. You deserve to feel the happiness and love that everyone
should feel. I strongly believe that you've impacted me for the rest
of my life. Thank you ever so much. Thank you.
Peace and forever happiness.
Your soulful admirer,
Jen (17 years old)

to Jared's mother
I wrote all of
those late last night, while sitting in my bed. I wanted to share
them with you to let you know that others care deeply. Losing anyone
is painful, but being young I still have a lot to learn. I hope you
and your family are doing well, because you deserve as much happiness as
possible. Take care of yourselves, and please know how much it means
to me to know there are people like you out there in the world. You
make this a better place for all.
