In Loving Memory...

Lisa Primm
Athough I only knew her for the short time we spent together in an inpatient facility last summer, I believe, with all my heart and every fiber in my being and souls were destined to connect in way few can imagine possible. She was a shining lightand I detected that from very first moment I saw her, sheiled from view behind the customary plexiglass window. She was tiny, frail, she looked about 60 years old but in reality, she was 37. Her organs were failing; she knew she was dying and we had many conversations about me not ending up like her--in the end she wanted to so desperately wanted to live. I connected with her on a level I never have with another person--and perhaps never will again.

All I know of her now is that she passed away (I can only pray peacefully and painlessly) last November. I hope she knows, that, although her family wansn't totally behind her and believed in her, that I did.

She was a star. And she's somewhere in a land with no calories to worry about--and free.

I pray she made it over the rainbow, that the clouds are far behind her, and that she is at peace. She's an angel now and I feel her sometimes. I hear her raspy laugh...she was just too beautiful for this Earth.

To a beautiful young woman, who could not overcome the pain. I pray you find the relief you struggled so long to find.

She was a kind and loving earth angel who had a megawatt smile that would light up a room! Jessica unsuccessfully battled her demons for years before deciding to win the war and end her suffering and pain. To those she leaves behind, she willed a legacy of love. Her family has vowed to join the fight against eating disorders by increasing awareness of the disease. We pray that, someday, no one will have to know the anguish and heartbreak of losing a beautiful, talented, special daughter.

Mom, I am so sorry for all the pain and abuse you sufferd and that you had anorexia for 23 years. I know you died from Leukemia but you and I truly believe that it was from your eating disorders. You were anorexic from the age of 17 to the day you died. I love you and miss you so dearly much! Love your one and only daughter, Terra Kleinjans
