Born: February 17, 2007 Died: January 11, 2009

Her Smile is Gone Forever

Though her smile is gone forever

Her hands we cannot touch

We still hold our memories

Of the one we loved so much.

Her memory is our keepsake

With which we’ll never part

God has her up in heaven

We have her in our hearts.

If tears could build a staircase

And heartache could make a lane

We would walk the path to heaven

And bring her home again.


Jeannie and Michael would like to extend heartfelt thanks to Dr. Van Schalkwyk, Dr. Carstens, Dr. Van Wyk and the nurses at the KGH emergency ward for all their efforts in trying to help Jorja.

We would also like to extend our gratitude for the compassion and generosity that was extended to our family. The outpouring of support from friends, acquaintances and the community meant so much to us and helped us during this difficult time. To our family and closest friends, thank you for lending us your shoulders to cry on and for your support and help which allowed us to get through the most difficult days.

Though our lives would be much richer with Jorja still in it, we are blessed to have lives as rich as they are because of you all, our family, friends, and community.

Thank You
