A letter to Jared... from Jen

Dear Jared,

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 too late.

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)

Bless your soul. 

"Angel Jared"

It seems to be miles ahead, a road that leads to no where.

Just knowing you've been down that path, makes me not as scared.

Your life was short but heart so big, brings me joy to understand...

...the love we feel and control we have, lies in our very hands.

Thank you for helping me feel how real I am..

I keep you deep in my heart and think of you as often as one can.

I hope you're safe and happy as can be, just please don't forget that
you have a friend in me..

Rest in peace dearest Jared, you'll remain forever in memory. 


Cherish the many things before they are gone.
Don't wait much more because forever is so long.

Dreams are dreams and day becomes night,
show me the way so I can follow your light.

You bring  me great joy in setting me free,
I'll never forget you my star, my joy, my lasting memory.

Now it is time I wish you well and then you are gone,
I'll be with you soon because forever only seems so long.

- Dedicated 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.
