Chris, Jamie and family we are in constant prayer for you. Not a single hour goes by that you are not in our thoughts.
Remember, this whole past weekend did not catch God off guard- he is in complete control and he knows every inch of Jamie's body. We pray that he breathes breath into Jamie's lungs, that he restores every organ in her body and that he gives every family member a peace beyond all understanding.
We love you guys and can not wait to welcome you home with open arms!

Chris and Jamie-I remember when I came in to take over Spanish III-IV when Blick was ill, and you two were in the same class. You always scooted your desks together to work with each other any time we had small group work. You were a strong couple as kids, and I feel certain you are even more strong as adults. I am praying for you.

GOD IS AWESOME and HE knows that and already it sounds like you have came along way up to 50/50 and I'm so thankful. You will put on my church's prayer list and I will pray for your family daily. May GOD Bless and know that GOD is always on our side.

Though we're not related, Jamie is indeed a part of the Kirkling family. From the time she was a very young girl, she was always at our family reunions, parties and would often come to Clay City, Indiana just to visit. She's a very important part of my cousin, Kelly's, life and we've all grown to love her, Chris and the entire Blackwell/Loveless family. All of our hearts go out to all of them. We know that the power of prayer and the love & support from family and friends will help Jamie fully recover. She's a person who is full of life and we can't wait to see her, Chris and little Gavin at the next Kirkling family event! God bless!

Much love & many prayers,

Our hearts goes out to the entire Blackwell-Loveless families. Thoughts and Prayers have been risen up continually since day one when we heard of Jamie falling sick on vacation. Will continue to do so in hopes of a full recovery. Jamie and Chris graduated with our oldest daughter Christy and although we have never been close, the love between Chris and Jamie was evident since they were so young. God speed for a quick and full recovery for Jamie to return home soon with Chris and resume her role as mommy to this beautiful boy of theirs.

I don't personally know you, but became aware of the situation through an email. I will be praying for your family. I have a friend in Orlando whose husband came down with a very similar situation recently - organ failure, congestive heart failure, respiratory distress, etc. If it helps at all for you to be put in contact with them and see if there are any similarities or if you can talk to any of their doctors, please let me know. My friend's husband was finally released from the hospital and is at home slowly regaining his health.

I am encouraged by the change that was posted last evening. You have been on mind, almost constantly, every since I heard the news. I don't know you personally, but feel such a strong connection to you. I know your Mom, and we have talked about our girls many times. My daughter, who is your same age, attended college in Nashville, so we have shared those conversations, along with sharing the happiness that comes with being a grandparent. I just know that anyone who has heard about what you are going through has been touched, and is praying for your full recovery. I will continue to pray for all of you.

I have been praying for Jamie and for the Lord to caress all of you in his arms for comfort. I pray for Jamie's healing and the doctors and nurses who wait upon her. Waiting is always hard, but our constant command is for us to wait upon the Lord. Call on Him continuously, He loves to hear from us and wants us to know and trust Him.

To Chris and all of he and Jamie's family We are so sorry for your loss. Jamie was a wonderful person and a great friend to all. She will be dearly missed. Anything we can do to help just ask.

10/29/2009 07:51:58 am


I have never met you, nor did I have the pleasure of knowing your late wife, but news of her death has traveled and even in London she is mourned. We must all remember, however, that death is hardly the end and that her absence from your life--while undoubtedly painful--is but a temporary one. You will see her again, I assure you.

Though our words seem inadequate, please know we will all continue to pray for your families that you will be comforted.

Dear Blackwell and Loveless Families,

All of Mooresville, and beyond, mourn the death of Jamie so suddenly and too soon in life. We grieve for all the memories lost of a long future together and for a husband without his wife, a boy without his mother, parents/in-laws without their daughter/daughter-in-law, siblings without a sister, and so forth. There are no words adequate enough to express comfort for you but we are praying for your families and for the Holy Spirit to provide strength needed in this time. May you find strength in the Lord during this time. You have so many friends and family to rely on too. May God Bless each of you.

To The Entire Blackwell and Loveless Families,

Our hearts ache for you during this tragic time! Sometimes we do not understand why God takes such amazing people from us. He has a reason and while we want to know why...we will ultimately never know. I promise you that time will heal your hearts. Right now it is important to take care of each other and Chris and Gavin and try to celebrate the wonderful life that Jamie lived. She touched many people in her life! You are all in our thoughts and prayers! God is with you right now as are the many many people near and far. With much sympathy,

The Blackwell/Loveless Families,

Although I did not know Jamie as well as I would have liked, the times I did talk to her she was always so sweet and kind. She truly had one of the biggest hearts ever- was always willing to help and patient with others. It is unfair and confusing why someone so incredibly wonderful and sweet would have something bad like this happen to them. Chris, I do believe she will now be you and your son's angel- watching down and protecting you two for the rest of your lives. From what I knew about her, she loved life so much that I'm sure she would want you and your son to continue loving your lives as much as she did. I am so sorry for your loss of such a great person. My thoughts and prayers are with the families!

Chris, Tonya, and families,

You are constantly being lifted up in prayer. We pray that God give you strength and comfort in the days to come. God will not put on you more than you can handle, He promises us that. We are so sorry for your loss, Jamie will be missed incredibly. We will not stop praying!

10/29/2009 01:16:19 pm

Loveless and Blackwell Families,

There are simply no words to express our saddness, nor to suffiently comfort you. Heather and I are incredibly saddened by your loss. We have been and will continue to pray for all of you. Folks in our church and those we work with (many of whom do not know you at all) have also been praying. As you no doubt now know from the outpouring of support evidenced on this site and elsewhere, you have the prayers and support of many people in many places (certainly in Mooresville). Please know that such support and those prayers do not cease with Jamie's passing. May you take some small degree of solace in knowing that Jamie unquestionably had a positive impact on so many lives (more than you will probably ever truly know). All who were blessed to meet or know Jamie in some capacity were/are better for it. I know I feel that way. We will continue to pray that God will give you peace and comfort during this time, and that He will in particular uplift and Bless Chris and Gavin. Many things are beyond our earthly understanding, but nothing is beyond God's understanding and He never stops loving or caring. We must never stop trusting in Him, even (indeed, especially) in times of tragedy and struggle. Be strong and be faithful, and please don't hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can do, whatever the need.

You all remain in our prayers,
Kyle & Heather Gormon

I am very sorry for your loss. There are no words that can be said to lighten your pain. Know that she is in a better place and is watching over Gavin and her family. My prayers and thoughts are with you in this time of need.

"God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not meant to be,
So he put his arms around you
and whispered "Come to Me".
With tearful eyes we watched you,
as we saw you pass away.
Although we loved you deeply,
we could not make you stay.
Your Golden Heart stopped beating,
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best. "

May God bless you all during your loss with His presence. I feel led to share with you these scriptures. I hope it helps. I will be praying for you.

1Co 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
1Co 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

1Th 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
1Th 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
1Th 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
1Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
1Th 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Even though we didn't know Jamie personally, we have been praying for our sister-in-Christ with the Luptons and our Bible Study in Fishers, IN. We will continue to pray for your family. Our earthly hearts are broken... and only He can heal us. I thought I would share this from "Prayers for the Moment" by Jim and Kaye Johns:

"When we're hurting, help us to find our joy in Christ, for it's His joy that will be our strength when all human strength is gone. Help us to trust Him as our God of hope. Help us experience the love, joy, and peace that are the results of His life in us, no matter what we are going through. (Nehemiah 8:10, Romans 15:13, Galatians 5:22) The Lamb on the throne will be our Shepherd. He will lead us to springs of life-giving water. And God will wipe every tear from our eyes." Revelations 7:17 (NLT) May you sense His presence more than ever. We love you.

Just spoke to Jack Coons, with Sharp, who had forwarded the information to our VP of Sales. Our VP sent the notification for prayer to all sales personnel. I know that they, like myself, forwarded to others. I did not meet Jamie, but knew we needed to pray. That's all we needed to do. But now our prayers of healing will go to her family members, friends, and all who knew her (and even didn't). Hopefully, you will feel some sense of relief in knowing we really are sad to know that she is gone.
God Bless you all!

I did not know Jamie well but I know a lot of people who did and every single one of them have always said she is one of the sweetest, nicest, most unbelievable people in the world...with the biggest heart! Our thoughts and prayers have been with Jamie, Chris, and Gavin during this difficult time and remain with their families and friends. May God bless you with the strength and grace to handle this tragic loss. God has another angel in heaven and she will be smiling down on all of us.

Beth, Matt, Lauren--I love you so much and am so sorry for this loss. I am here if you need anything. Stay strong. I feel so lucky to have you in my life.

Love and Prayers,

I work with Sharp in NJ, and only had the pleasure of speaking with Jamie on the phone. Although I never met her in person, I still realized what a nice, genuine person she realy was. When I heard the news, I was stunned, and had tears in my eyes as I was deeply shocked and saddened. My heart goes out to the Loveless family during this extremely difficult time. God Bless you Chris.

Today, Friday October 30, was Jamie's first full day in Heaven. I bet you she never felt stress, anger or sadness or any pain. I imagine this was the best Friday she ever had. I think of her looking down on us and telling us "just wait until you see this guys..." On every Friday whenever Jamie would call in for her voicemail or to check in or whatever we would say hey to eachother but not in the normal way. You see about a year ago we started saying heeeeeey to eachother in a long drawn out tone that made us laugh each time we did it. It was our Friday thing.

This passed Friday and as many God will allow me after that I will always think back to our heeeey and I'll remember the sound of her voice just as long.

My thoughts continue to be with you.

We recently lost our youngest son and felt as if life would never be the same. I't been 6 1/2 months for us, he was 18, and had so much to offer this world. Find courage with your loved ones and friends keep them close and cry often! Time will ligthen your hearts and you will smile again! Memories are all we have and your grandson will fill your hearts with love and her memory! GOD BLESS! The Black's

It's so hard to find words to say knowing the pain is to great to take away.
Although Jamie is physically not with us, she will always be with you in mind, spirit, soul and especially through your precious son.

I pray for you and your families for strength and comfort from pain. Please remember your ol' work buddies when you need a shoulder to lean on. We are always here for you.

Rest in peace Jamie

We were all deeply affected by Jamie's plight. Everytime I passed her room and saw her and the baby's picture, I said a prayer. Her death put a human face on this terrible pandemic. As we watched her family and friends in a prayer circle, we prayed as well. Jamie's last nurse had tears in his eyes when he told me of her passing. Chris and Gavin, you will always remain in our prayers.

I am completly taken aback by how affected I am by your horribly unfair and tragic loss. Perhaps it's because I have a 9 month old and the thought of that precious little boy never knowing his mother literally breaks my heart. I'm so sorry. I am so so very sorry....
I will pass on this website to you or whoever can take a look at it first-
The Liz Logelin Foundation was established to provide financial assistance to young widows and widowers with dependent children. Liz's husband, Matt Logelin, started it and knows your heartache all to well. It won't bring Jamie back, but it could help make your time dealing with this a little easier. Praying for you and your little guy....

I'm sure you have family descending upon you and great neighbors. If you can use our help too we are always here for you. We can watch Gavin anytime (I have a flexible schedule).
I am so glad you have all those beautiful photos of your family and of Jamie. Gavin will treasure those images. The love Jamie has for you and for Gavin is so obvious in the photos.
Much love,

My family has just returned from Jamie's viewing. There were tears, beautiful flowers, and hundreds of people paying their respects. There was a wonderful photo slide show of Jamie's life. It was obvious that Jamie and the two families had touched many lives. We would like to thank everyone who left words of encouragement and prayers and thanks to all who were able to contribute to Jamie's fund. There will be many dark days ahead for Chris and the families so please continue to pray for them. Bless you.

I didn't really know Jamie, but I know it has affected my family. My dad was Chris's bball coach and I know he knew Jamie. I haven't been able to stop thinking about her since I heard the news from my mom. I am terribly sorry for your loss. I know my dad attended the viewing. Sorry I could not be there. (I no longer live in the area.) I have two daughters and can't imagine leaving them. Prayers to Chris and that precious baby.

Chris, Gavin and the whole family,
As a coworker of Ashley and Tawana, I heard of the tragic illness that Jamie was fighting, and eventually lost the battle of her life to. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers as you face this very difficult time. Hold fast to the strength of God, your family, your friends and all of those who care about you and your young family. Keep Jamie's memory alive for little Gavin who will not have the opportunity to know her here on earth. A small piece of her legacy will always be with you as long as you have him. I cannot imagine going through your ordeal, even in my line of work, but my heart aches for what you have gone through. Take care of yourself and your son, and let those around you give support as you need it. God bless you and your family.

Friends and family gathered to lay Jamie to rest early this afternoon. The day started out rainy but the skies cleared and the sun was out after her services. Chris gave a lovely tribute to his wife which included some sweet and funny memories and some tears. Hundreds of people came to pay their respects at calling and again today for the funeral. If there was one thing that was mentioned over and over it was her warm smile and sweet nature. Luckily she has passed these traits on to Gavin. There will be sorrow ahead for CHris and the families and friends so please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers. I know Chris appreciates everything that everyone has done for him and Gavin. Please get an N1H1 shot and encourage your family and friends to get vaccinated also. God Bless you for your support to my family.

"Our Sweet Jamie"

How blessed this world is to have had someone like you.
Your light, your love… it will always shine through.

Your beautiful brown eyes, how they drew people in.
We all wish we could see you again.

You lit up every room… every time, every place.
We’ll always remember your gorgeous face and your grace.

To us, you were it. You were everything.
You made the gods rejoice and the angels sing.

A part of you lives on for always, everyone sees.
Gavin is your greatest gift, we think you would agree.

We thank God everyday for giving you precious life.
A friend, daughter, mother and wife.

Now you’re in Heaven and you are out of sight.
Your smile, we’ll remember, so beautiful and bright.

Never forget you are loved and you always will be.
We’ll remember you forever, our sweet Jamie.
