O'Dell, Joi Courtney
05 March 1985 - 07 July 2013
My sweet and all-loved Joi, I'm so sorry that you hurt so much. You loved us well, and we loved you far more than you ever imagined. Countless people think of you every day, and our hearts break when we think of how much more love there was left to be felt. You were courageous, sweet, kind, witty, hilariously funny, so very creative, and, most importantly, entirely willing to love everyone you met exactly as they were. I only wish you could have felt the same of yourself.
