Anne N. Bates

Jessica Dawn Rocque
October 30, 1981 – July 6, 2003

Jessica was our shining star – making a difference in the lives of the very young, and the very old…

She loved the children that she worked with in a college child care facility and the older patients that she worked with in a retirement home…

Jess planned to attend nursing school, inspiring to become an RN and continue helping…

We lost Jessica to a rare heart problem, and are left wondering what she could have accomplished in her life, making a difference in many lives…

She meant the world to us, and we shall forever miss and love her…

This beautiful patch was made by her loving Grandmother…
