From another ‘flybaby,’ I was so saddened to read of your tragic loss. I will hold Jill’s family and friends, and especially her children, in my prayers. May God comfort you at this very difficult time, and may He bless Emily and Reid with their mother’s bright spirit and constant love.

With many other FlyBabies, I have shed tears for your family and wish you comfort during this hard time. Jill’s joy of life has inspired and will be remembered by many. Thank you for allowing her memory to be shared with us.
The family is in our prayers and thoughts.
my heart goes out to you.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
I want to express my deepest sympathies to Jill’s family. I attended school w/ Jill, we cheered a number of yrs. together and she was just the sweetest person you could ever meet. After high school we lost touch and low and behold I ran into her at the credit union in Fletcher a couple of yrs. back. She was still the same sweet Jill. I am truly going to miss ya Jill and never forget you. You were and are still one beautiful person.

I heard about Jill from FlyLady as well. I admire the care she took to be a loving person. I will give a hug to someone who needs it in her honor.
My heart is heavy for Sandy and Bill. It would be awful to loose a child. I do not know Tim, Emily or Reid but I pray that God will help ease your pain with the thoughts of her being where we all long to be.
Jill and Lynn grew up with my children Kim and Nan. Nan and Jill’s birthday are on the same day. They went to church together and played basketball together.
God be with all of the friends and family of such a sweet girl.
Friends in Christ, Joan
I read of your horrible loss on the Flylady website and am so very sorry. Please take it slow and easy. Your whole family is in my heart.
I too, read of Jill’s passing on FlyLady’s web site. My heart and prayers go out to this young family. To Sandra, thank you for instilling the selflessness in your daughter and to Tim, thank you for taking the time to talk with Jill about her wishes to donate her organs. I have Hepatitis C and have several friends that are waiting on liver transplants and a few that have died waiting for a liver. It is so very important that each and everyone of us make known our wishes to give of ourselves after death. Since I have Hepatitis C, I cannot donate my organs, but I will be donating my body to science to help futher research for liver diseases or to help in the training of new doctors.
Thank you for being such giving and loving people.
Sandra, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I was really saddened to hear about Jill’s death. I just don’t think there is anything worse than losing a child. Just remember I, along with your other fellow clerks, are here for you. Love, Pam Robertson
Heartfelt prayers and thoughts to husband and children and also to family members as they gather to support one another … God must need Jill to help with His work in Heaven
I read of Jill Waddell’s passing by email from the Fly Lady and was so touched by the story of her life and family. She certainly sounded like a beautiful mother and wife.
My prayers will be with her young children and husband.
I knew Jill years ago in Brevard but have not seen her in many years. My thoughts and prayers go out to her husband, children, family and friends. She was a very sweet and kind soul; a beautiful person both inside and out. She was kind to everyone and always had a smile to share. Again, my sincere condolences to all of her family and friends.
Wow. So many Flybaby entries… I am also a Flybaby, and read of Jill’s death in Marla’s email. Please know that your family is in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. What a precious gift Jill has given to so many people that she never knew, simply by following in Christ’s footsteps…
The poem ‘The Plan of the Master Weaver’ has given me great comfort when faced with the loss of a loved one. I hope it blesses you, too.
In my earlier message I failed to mention where I worked with Jill. We worked together at Centel/Sprint/360° in High Point. Again, my prayers are with you and your little ones at this time.
The Years were few ~ but the love was great’.
I, too, am a FLYlady member who has just read Marla’s tribute and memories of Jill. Truly, she was God’s child ~ one who lived for Him. What a testimony of a life which touched others both in life and in death. What a loving daughter, wife and mother she was!
My heartfelt sympathy to Sandra,Tim Emily and Reid ~ and family all. Without a doubt she made a loving mark on others through her life that would point them to the true and living God.
She has been ‘Promoted-To-Glory’ ~ but we will all meet in Heaven some day.
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on your loss and know that you will be in our prayers.
Love and prayers,
I also heard of your devastating loss from the flylady email. Although I do not know your family personally, your loss has touched my heart. I had a similar experience several years ago, and all I can say is that in time your memories will be less painful, and the healing process will begin. All you can do in the meantime is to keep yourelves and the children strong in your love for each other.
I’m sending lots of love, prayers and deepest regards to Jill’s family. Jill and I were the best of friends for most of our school age years. There are so many wonderful things to say about Jill. I will cherish all of my memories of her. She will be greatly missed. May God be with each and every member of her family.
Love and prayers.
I read about this on Flylady’s web site. I am very sorry.
Tim, Emily, Reid, Tommy, Lynn, and Trey We at Apollo Enviro Clean would like you to know how shocked we were to hear of Jill’s accident. She was truly a sweet person and she loved all of you very much. Although she is not here physically she lives in every one of your hearts and souls. The memories she gave you will last a lifetime. You will miss her presence but one day you will be reunited in a better place.

I was so sorry to hear about Jill’s accident through Marla (FLYLady). I can’t help but think, after reading more about Jill and her love for her family and life, that she is so happy to be home and so happy that this did not happen to one of the children.
Your entire family and community is in my thoughts and prayers.
Sandra, please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Much sympathy.
I truely am sorry for your loss. I knew Jill through work and she was a great woman and an excellent help with Verizon Wireless. I hope all will be able to get through this troubling time.
I too am a Flybaby. My prayers are with your family in this time of need. I lost my mother to cancer 2 years ago so I feel your loss.
I feel blessed to have met Jill. She was a delightful young woman with a beautiful smile. Thank you for sharing your precious family with us over the years. Know my love and prayers are with you now.
Jill sounds like the kind of person I would have been friends with. My deepest sympathy goes out to her husband and children. God bless the family for following her wishes for organ donation. What better legacy to leave….
We remember Jill fondly as she grew up in First Baptist, Brevard. Our hearts go out to all of you.
I offer my deepest sympathies to all of Jill’s family. Dearest Sandra, thank you for helping Marla as she began her journey that led her to be Flylady. You have blessed all of us through her. May God bless you and keep you close during this difficult time.
We just want to send our love and sympathy to our first NC friends – Sandra and Bill. We remember Jill’s birth as well as Lynn’s. We were fortunate to watch them grow up into fine young women. Words can’t express the sadness we feel, but pray for God’s comfort in the time of need.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. God Bless and take care of you all.
I am so very sorry for your sudden loss. I feel honored to have known Jill, and although it has only been a short time, i enjoyed her company, her kindness is unforgettable and my thoughts and prayers are with you all. much Love. God Bless,

May God hold you in his arms and cover you with his love. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
All of us here at RadioShack 1976 will miss you.
I am so sorry for your loss. Here is something that has helped me to cope…..Psalms 34:18 ‘Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit he saves’. God is always there for us, we just have to reach for him. and in the bible he promises that we’ll see our loved ones again; John 5:28,29 ‘the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will..come out..to a resurrection of life..’I hope this will help you and your family as it has helped me.
Dear Waddell Family,
You don’t know me. I learned of Jill’s death through the ‘FLY LADY’ emails that I get daily.
I had to write to let you know that I’m praying for you. You must be so angry right now. It just doesn’t seem fair. It makes me mad just hearing the story. Why do bad things happen to good people. It just doesn’t seem fair. But there is Grace to find somewhere in all this. There are Blessings to grow out of all this. Somehow it will happen. Please have Faith. Jill has already saved other lives by her donations but such a special person as this will share many Blessings to come.
I don’t know you but I feel your pain. Keep the Faith and hang in there as cheezeey as that sounds – That’s what you do. Accept the support and love that will come from your family and friends. They want to help you. Let them and feel their healing love.
With much love and compassion,
Mary Frances Hart
I met Jill at our last POA meeting in Asheville. She was very nice and contributed to our meeting. I was very sorry to hear about her recent death. I send my condolences to her family.
I am so sorry for your loss. She will be greatly missed and was well loved. May God be with you and I know he will help you get through this.
The Persian Poet Rumi, on his passing, said to his followers,
‘Do not grieve upon my death, for my death is my marriage to Eternity.
Without ever meeting Jill, her life has touched me deeply.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Just want you to know that a prayer was just said that the good Lord has comforted you and the family and that He continues to comfort and strenghthen you this day and every day.
My heartfelt sympathy to you, Sandra, and to all your family. May you find strength in the recall of all the beauty you shared. In my heart, I hold your hand. Love, Alice Chandler Burhenn
Our prayers are with each of you through this time of tremendous and tragic loss. Our 29 year old son, our only child, was killed in an auto accident 3 years ago yesterday . We know there are difficult days ahead. God never said our way would be easy, but He did say He would walk it with us. He gives us strength and comfort as we feel His presence in the darkest hours. May you find peace in His love and in your wonderful memories.
I was so sorry to hear about your loss from Flylady. I cannot imagine what you are going thru, just know that thousands are praying for you and your family at this time and never forget that you now have a special angel looking over you.
Rebecca in NY
she was such a cheerful person, and was great to work with at this Radio Shack store, and with our district. She’ll be missed by us, and may God bless your family through this.
thanks for letting me write this in her memory.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May you find strength in the Lord at this tragic moment.
Jill was a wonderful, energetic,
person with a heart of gold. She always had a smile for everyone. Her death is a huge loss to everyone who knew her. She will be greatly missed.
My love and prayers, Know God is with you all forever, He holds us in his hands always, my love Lynn
My heart is full of saddness. I went to junior high and high school with Jill. She was an amazing person. Always with a smile on her face. My prayers are with you.
Coach Jill’ coached our daughter this past fall in cheerleading. She was a wonderful role model for the girls and a wonderful mother. She will be very missed.
Love You, Miss you Coach Jill.
You do not know me, nor I you
But please know that I will pray for all of you. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
May you somehow find peace…….

Jill was a wonderful woman and co-worker. Everyone enjoyed her presence at our meetings and the contributions she made to our team. She will be missed.
I’m very sorry for your loss. I heard about Jill through Flylady.com.
I wonder what are they doing in
Heaven tonight – Sister Lillie must
have welcomed her granddaughter
with arms open wide – what a lot
of celebration there must have been
upon Jill’s arrival – EVEN SO COME
QUICKLY LORD JESUS FOR US WHO REMAIN
I first met Jill years ago when she started working for Verizon. Emily was just an infant and I remember how in love she was with her baby girl. I saw her occasionally at work through the years and always respected her and thought she was a lovely person. When I worked with you, I remember you telling me that she was the best thing that had ever happened to you. You were very sincere and I knew how much you loved Jill. I don’t know if there are any words of comfort at a devastating time like this. My prayer is that God will give you all some peace. Jill’s sweet spirit will be greatly missed here on Earth.
May God’s love bless your family in this time of tremendous lost. My prayer’s are with you all and I know there is great comfort in knowing Jill is with our Lord in glorious paradise!
Words cannot express the heartfelt sympathy I have for the family. I pray that God will give you all the comfort and hope that only He can give. Love, Sandra
Jill use to be our Verizon Rep at the RadioShack in Statesville she was a wonderfull person she will be missed by all whose lives she touched. Your family will be in my prayers.
Our prayers are with all the family during this very difficult time and the days ahead. May you find some comfort in knowing your friends are praying for you.
Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. May our God of all grace comfort you.
We are praying for you all at this time of great loss.

I am so sorry for the loss of your dear daughter, wife, mother and sister. I will be praying that you will find comfort in the love she carried for you in her heart. For the love that God has for each one of you. May God Bless each of you.
Coming up through BMS and BHS, Jill was a super person and a great friend. She achieved the things in her life as she had wished. To Bill, Sandra and Lynn words cannot touch upon what you must be going through. To her marital family, my heart breaks for you as it makes me ponder my own family. And to all of her friends, cherish the memories as I do. I know the feeling of having such a devoted friend. In prayers –
Nicky, Julie & Jordan Simpson

I’m sorry you lost Jill so early in life.

My prayers are with you today. I just read everything about Jill thanks to Flylady. We do have the hope that comes from Jesus Christ that one day you will be reunited. I can tell that Jill touched many lives, and through this, will touch countless that you may never know about. Thank you for donating her organs. My brother in law has life today because of a lung and heart transplant 5 years ago. May God continue to be with you.
Dear Bill & Family, Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Jerry, Beth, Shane & Kristin Ihme
I remeber Jill as always laughing and smiling a real joy to see I looked forward to her store visits, we missed her very much when she switched jobs but thought of her often.

May you and your family know the peace that goes beyond our understanding, strength to endure, and hope to go on.

I learned about Jill from Flylady, and my prayers are with all you for your sudden and deep loss.
I am very sorry to hear that Jill has died. While I never met her, Lynn used to talk about her and what a wonderful mother she was.
Sandra – I wish I had the words to express the sadness I feel for you and your family. I’ll never understand why some people suffer so much, but I do know that God is still in control, and He loves you. I pray that He will give you and your family the peace and comfort that only He can give. Love, Joyce
Family, I am so sorry, I just read about Jill in the paper. Sandra and Bill, my heart goes out to you, Lynn, you also. And to Jill’s husband and children, may God bless you with peace and His love. I remember Jill and Lynn as little girls, Jill who loved horses so much. What a blessing to know she is with her Lord.
My prayers are with you in your loss….Leon F. Ijames
I came to this site from flyladies. I did not know her but she must have been a truly remarkable person to have been worthy of such wonderful words. To her family I would like to say that, with time, your memories of her life will overtake, and heal, the pain of her passing.
Go with God, in peace
My deepest sympathy to Jill’s family I know how she will be missed I know her from Radioshack she was so sweet as she could be I’m truly sorry for the Waddell’s unfortunate lost.I send my prayers out to her family. Thank you Sandra
We are so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in our prayers.
Just wanted to say that I am sorry to hear about your loss. She sounded like a very kind person. I am a mother and I can’t imagine losing one of my kids.
Our sympathy and our prayers are with you during this sad time in your lives. Your love for each other and God’s love for you will help you in the days and years to come. Know that many are praying for you. Colleen
I have just heard of your family’s loss through Marla from FLYlady.com – it sounds like Jill was a wonderful woman and I am so sorry to hear that she has left you all so suddenly. I recently moved to a new home and our neighbour died before we could meet him, leaving his wife and two young girls. These tragedies have taught me and my husband to cherish every moment we have with our children. My husband is a financial planner and thinks about life insurance and wills and so on all the time, but we now realise there is so much more – there is the time we have together. I just wanted you to know that there are people on the other side of the earth who care and are feeling your sadness.
I also heard of your tragic loss from Flylady. May God be with you and your family. Thank you donating her organs. What a precious gift she has given to other families. My sister had a heart transplant in 1997. I would love to be able to thank that family. God bless you.
May you feel God’s presence immensely during this very difficult time.
From a member of the Flylady.net group.
Dear Mr. Waddell and family,
We don’t know each other, but as a sister in Christ I just wanted to let you know I’ll be praying for you and your family. God will lift you up and strengthen you. Just keep leaning on Him. May the Lord bless you and give you peace and joy in these days and the days ahead. Love in Christ…Renee Hartzler
We had the pleasure of getting to know Jill as neighbors several years ago. Her sunny personality instantly put a smile on your face. Mike had just seen her Wednesday, vibrant and full of life as usual, with glowing reports about her family and job.
Sunny, glowing, vibrant–that was my first and lasting impression of Jill.
Apparently her co-workers and friends saw that also, and I hope through this tragedy they realize that her ‘glow’ came from a relationship with Jesus Christ.
It’s amazing to see how many lives she has touched as I read through this guestbook. Tim gave such a moving testimony at her memorial–surely resulting in many changed hearts. It was an inspiration to us all.
We will keep you and your family in our prayers.
I read about Jill via the FLYlady website. From what I read of her story I have a sence of her wonderful strength and energy and foresight. Thank you for sharing her story. My deepest condolences to all her family and friends.
Jill inspired this poem for her:
Weep not for me
for I have lived and loved
my life and my dreams live on
I have celebrated my joy of life in marriage, in our children, in our family and in our friends
I live with you in memories
in your hearts all and every day
in the love you have towards one another
Celebrate life and love
I love you all always.’
Peggy Who AussieFlybaby
May God bless your family at this very difficult time.
I too just read of Jill’s passing through the Flylady website. She must have been such a wonderful wife and mother. I send the entire family, but especially her husband and children my condolences. May God Bless you all.
Waddell family, We read of your loss and want to tell you we are deeply sorry for you. We also wanted to thank you for donating Jill’s organs. Because of your kindness others will live. Because of someones kindness our father (grandfather) was given 18 more years of life when he received his donated heart. We lost him Christmas of 2003, but cherish the extra years we had him!thinking of you,the Cretsinger familywill, michele, trey, amelia, kordell& kenzie
Your family is in my prayers. May you be comforted by God’s love and mercy.
May your loving memories of good times bring you comfort at this time. My deepest sympathy to your family.
Dear Tim, Emily, Reid, Jill’s parents, and family members,
My heart goes out to you all at this most difficult time. I will pray for God to see you through this, and for your family to draw closer as a result of this tragedy. As a mother myself, I feel your pain, and I know words cannot describe what you are going through at this moment. Know that you are being lifted up in prayer and you will look back on this time and ask ‘How did we make it?’ But I promise you, you will make it. Hang in there and always trust God…He will see you through. Two yrs ago, I lost my own Dad very suddenly and unexpectedly. It was definately the most difficult time I’ve ever experienced, but I can finally say that it is getting better. Hugs to you all even though I do not know you…Cry when ever you feel the need …do not fight the tears!and let people help you.
Love and prayers,
Lynn, Tim, Sandra, Bill, Emily, Ried, et al, please know how much I am thinking of you all every single day and holding you in my prayers. My heart is aching so much as I will miss Jill terribly—she was a dear friend and I feel honored to have known her. I have many wonderful memories of her from as far back as elementary school and for that, I will forever be grateful! May God bless you all and comfort you in this time of grief~ Blessings, Rachel
Wish I could give you all a big hug. Your memories of Jill will keep her in your lives always… till you see her again. In the mean time, it is OK to cry.
Susan (FlyBaby sent by Marla)
I read about your loss through the Flylady and want to tell you that you are all in the prayers of our family. A wife and mother hold such a crucial role in a family and I know you will miss her terribly.
God bless you!
I read about Mrs. Waddell on the Flylady website and what a testimony. Mrs Waddell seemed like a great Mother and wife. She touched many lives I am sure. I will be thinking about your family for a while.
I don’t know you but you have touched my life.
I am so sorry for your loss.
What a beautiful testimony to motherhood this loving soul left behind for her family and friends.
To the family and friends of Jill: may God bestow upon you all, that peace that passes all understanding in this, your time of sorrow. I didn’t know Jill, but it seems that she was known and loved by all, and will continue to live on in the lives of those she has helped so unselfishly and in the memories of everyone who knew her. God bless you all.
Thanks to Flylady I know of your loss.I wish you all the love strengt and your family needs now,to overcome your grief.
I am saddened to hear of Jill’s passing,especially for her husband and dear children. I am glad her testimony was recorded for all to know, how she loved and spent time with her children and was a Christian. May the Lord comfort her family and bring a peace that passes all understanding. Sincerely, Jean Ann
Waddell family and friends,
It seems from the number of entries here that you all are surrounded by many loving thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. God has placed all of these people here for you, but it is also my prayer that God will embrace you and carry you through your grieving. While I cannot imagine the sorrow you feel with Jill’s death, what an awesome thing it is to know that the angels in heaven are celebrating her arrival there! Lean on the knowledge that she is now with her Creator, lean on each other, and lean on God – He is always there, even in those dark moments when you’re not always so sure.
Thank you for sharing Jill’s story and life lessons with us.
In prayer for you,
Dear Waddell Family,
My deepest condolences and longest, strongest prayers to you at this time. May God comfort you at this time and for the days to come in which there will be much pain and questions. What a beautiful angel Jill must be in heaven, as she was here on earth.
All my thoughts are with you,
Thanks to FlyLady, this beautiful woman is being remembered and glorified by people who never got to meet her on this earth but look forward to meeting her in heaven. If only there were more like her~the world would definitely be a better place. And to use another clique, it is so sad that only the good die young. I sit at my computer weeping tears of joy for her life, tears of sorrow for her family, and tears of gratitude to my Lord, that He truly lives through people on this earth~I guess He just missed His angel Jill and called her back to His arms. I am so sorry for your loss. Very sincerely,
Christy in TX
We learned of her tragic death thru FlyLady.net. We send our condolences to the family and pray that all of us will be better human beings through awareness of how a life should be lived. Prayers and thanksgiving to God.
Jill’s story on Flylady’s web site touched my heart. My prayers are with her family and friends. There are no words to heal their pain, but know that I am thinking of you and your loss.
You are in our prayers. Flylady emailed me about this tragic event.
I heard about your loss and I wanted to tell you that your family is in my heart and prayers. I was glad to hear that Jill had such a wonderful life and her life will go on in people’s hearts and by the gracious gift of organ donation.
Dear Waddell Family,
I’m sincerely saddened to hear of your dear Jill’s passing. It seems all the worse that she was such a wonderful, loving and giving woman. Yet I know that her story, reaching so far as it is, will have an impact on everyone who reads it. It will make people cherish the time they have with their own families and to make the most of each day. Her light will shine on for a long time. Maybe through her tragedy, others will be spared from harm from the obstruction on that hill. And what a wonderful thing to share her life, by letting so many others live on through the simple act of organ donation. May God hold you in his arms and comfort you.
To the Waddell and Jameson Family,
I am so sorry for your tremendous loss. I have read about her beautiful life and her passing through the Flylady site. Although I did not know Jill, she has touched my life profoundly today, and reminded me of how precious our time is here on Earth, and how important it is to live our lives and spread our love to the fullest each day. May her family feel comfort in knowing that Jill will always live on in their hearts and in heaven, where she is with God and now loving them from above. She is their guardian angel and she will always be with them. I have two young children close in age to Emily and Reid; my heartfelt love goes out to them. Their Mom will always be a special light in their lives. Jill has touched so many lives, and she has blessed many families through her selfless wishes of organ donation. May time ease your pain and replace it with strength and healing. May you feel comforted in knowing that through her life and her passing, she has had an impact on many of us here on Earth. You are all in my prayers.
I have heard of this wonderful woman from our dear mentor, Marla, who promised to tell the world about Jill. I am sure that through being active with her children she has created memories that they will cherish for the rest of their lives. It looks like she was happy and living her life to the fullest. I am truly sorry for your loss.
After reading about Jill’s story from the Flylady, I send my prayers to her family and friends who were so courageous to allow her death to help save lives. This is a very painful time but there are many of us wishing comfort and condolences for Jill’s story has touched our lives. God Bless.
Another FLYbaby to add prayers on your family’s behalf. May peace return to your lives and Jill’s beautiful legacy live on.
After reading Marla’s tribute to Jill, I wanted to read more about her before praying for her family. As I read the Funeral home’s write up, I found some things we had in common … devotion to her children, a willingness to put aside the daily tasks of life to make memories, and a surprise sisterhood … I was a Sigma Kappa in college here in Pennsylvania. May God bless and keep all of you as you travel this painful road.
I learned of Jill’s death from the FlyLady and want to pass on my heartfelt condolences to her loving family and friends. What a beautiful woman she was, and what a beautiful gift her organs were to someone else. Words cannot bring her back, but I hope that you can take comfort in the fact that she is in a good place and is watching over you with love and devotion always.
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
Dearest Family and Friends of Mrs. Waddell,
I have read about your Jill on FLYLADY and I am deeply touched by the love and passion she had for family, friends, and life. If people would learn from this beautiful woman…our world would be filled with kindness, love, and values of the purest form. Im sure I speak for many when I say Thank You for sharing a part of Jill with us. Her love and yours, have saved several lives. How truly loving you are thinking of others during this time. God Bless and our prayers will lift you to Gods throne. My love to you all.
Your sister in Christ,
I too read the notice via the Flylady and wish to extend my condolences to the family and friends who have felt this great loss. I lost my husband 2 years ago and know how lost I have felt since. It does get better with time and you’ll laugh again. After all, that’s exactly what Jill would have wanted!
I wish to send you my condolences. Jill was a wonderful woman. Thank you for also donating organs so that others may live on. May the Lord bless you and your family during these hard times, and forever!
My heartfelt condolences to all of you on the passing of your beautiful daughter, wife and mother. May it comfort you to know it is only a matter of time before you are once again joined together in our eternal home.
Dear Tim, Emily, Reid, Victoria, Lynn & family, Sandy, Bill and all who love Jill,
You are in my prayers. I am so moved by the love and faith you and Jill have shared. How I wish I had known her. I learned of your family’s loss through an email from Marla (Flylady). I pray God’s peace, strength and comfort uphold you now and always.
In the Love of Christ which binds us,
I have been made aware of Jill’s death through the Flylady website. Although clearly I never knew Jill I have been moved by the what I have read about her both here and elsewhere. My prayers go to Tim and the children who have lost a very special person. May the light of Jesus Christ lead them through dark times and keep them secure in his love.
We grieve your loss with you. Our prayers are with you and your family that God will comfort you and guide you through this time of great sadness and loss.
Wrap yourself in His grace and love and He will give you hope for the future.
I read about Jill on FlyLady Web site. I am saddened to hear of Jill’s passing especially for her husband and dear children. They will always have good memories of her and the special life she lived. My prays are with you.
To Jill’s loving family and friends,
Words seem so trite at a time like this, when you are feeling so much pain. Yet, I pray that my words bring some comfort to you. May God heal your broken hearts, and lead you to peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
From another ‘Flylady’ friend.
I do not know your family or your wife. I subscribe to a site called http://www.flylady.net and she sent an email with your sad story. I just felt compelled to write, because I too have young children and can’t imagine such a tragedy in our family. I will think of your wife when I kiss my children goodnight, because I know she won’t have that chance again. Your horrible loss helps me to appreciate what I have. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
Our prayers are with you and may strenghts be with you for those coming weeks and months… May Jill’s joy and happiness surround you always, while she is with Jesus. We are so sorry that she had to leave so early… It is always hard for the ones left behind.
I want to extend my deepest sympathy for your loss. It is so sad for a husband to be without his wife. The life of a child without a mother is something that I have a very hard time understanding. I know that you will all be together again, as that is Heavenly Father’s plan.
May you find comfort in this at this very turbulant time in your life. May the Lord bless you and keep you in your days, weeks, months and years ahead. God Bless you and I will remember you in my prayers.
My prayers go out to your family at this time of great sadness and loss. May God’s loving embrace surround you and bring you comfort only He can.
I also want to send my deepest sympathy’s and heartfelt concern for your loss of Jill, here in this world. May you all find comfort in knowing she is now with Jesus our Lord and Saviour. You are in my prayers…another flybaby
I, too, subscribe to Flylady and learned of your tragic loss from Marla. To Jill’s loving family and friends — you have my very deepest sympathy. What a gift and inspiration you had in having Jill as part of your lives. What a gift she gave to others in her death. Hearing about her love for family, friends, and even those she did not know have inspired me and many others to re-evaluate our priorities. Praise be to God for sharing Jill with us on earth. May the many happy memories bring you a little bit of peace as you all seek to heal in this sad time.
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. May you feel Gods love around you. I will be praying for your family. I also have children the same age.(and two teenagers) Jills testimony will help me to hold onto every moment that I have with my children a little longer! Thank you for donating her organs, I pray that the lives that she helped to save will be blessed and that her kindness will live on through those people. God bless you.Thank you flylady for sharing this touching story. Susan
So very sorry to hear of the tragic loss of your lovely Jill. She sounds like a very special person, daughter, wife, and mother. You and yours will be in my prayers. Most Sincerely, Janet Martinez
Oh Sandra, there are no words to describe your loss, I know. My prayer for you is that you are able to find peace even though it makes no sense that Jill is gone. You are uplifted in prayer by thousands of us tonight, tomorrow, and in the coming weeks. Know that just as we are faithfully keeping you in our hearts, much more so is our Lord. Know that you are not forsaken.
Sigma Kappa Sorority would like to extend our deepest sympathies for the loss of your loved one and our sister, Jill Jameson Waddell. She was an inspiration to her chapter sisters, and will be missed by all of her sorority friends. Our thoughts are with you at this time.
I am so sorry for your loss. May the peace of our Lord bless you and keep you through these devestating days. Know that the thoughts and prayers of many are with you and share in your sorrow.
I am so sorry for your loss. Your loved one must have been a beautiful person – she touched so many lives in living and now even beyond. I am another Flylady who had the opportunity to read about Jill. My prayers are with you.
Another FLYbaby to add prayers on your family’s behalf. My deepest sympathies go out to your family.
I’m terribley sorry for your loss. I know she will be missed by countless people. I enjoyed her friendship through school and when we went to Western Carolina together. The wonderful memories god gave us with her will be remembered for the rest of our lives. I will pray for all of her family during these troubled times.
May God’s love soothe you during this time of great pain for your family. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers(Flylady’s cyber family).
Real Moms can be hard to come by and that makes them all the more precious. May the peace of the Lord rest upon you. I know your memories of Jill will be sweet and that you’ll see her again. My sincere condolances to you all.
May gods love be with each of you.
Jills love is endless as she still continues to share life. Memories of her and her beautiful smile will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Sheila,Bam,Brooke,Jeniffer,Mikey and Keith Nicholson
I send you my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your precious Jill.
I am a member of the FlyLady site – and I read of your tragedy today.
I pray for strength and peace for your family, and for your whole Community, to enable you to overcome the loss of such a special woman.
Bless you all.
from janie (in New Zealand)
To the Waddell family, my heart aches for your loss. Jill may have left her earthly body, but her heart lives on in you and the children. She now watches over you every moment. I pray for peace and protection for your family.
I am a member of Flylady.com, and have just learned of your loss. My heart and prayers go to your family and especially Jill’s kids. How hard it is for them to understand, yet how awesome that they know the love of Jesus. I’m sure thier mom taught them to always be true to Jesus. I pray He will comfort Tim and the children during this time of loss. He will wrap his arms of love around you all. Our God has special plans for Jill and needed to bring her home. Be assured, He has brought her home, however He is with you every moment taking care of you. My heart reaches across the miles. I do not personally know you all, but you are LOVED!
I read about Jill from Flylady, also. We never know how much time we have to spend with those we love. I have just lost my husband and marriage due to alcoholism. Though he is still alive, he is lost to me, because he left 3 weeks ago, and I do not know where he is. I kept telling myself ‘if I’d only known, this was the last time I’d see him walk in from work, I would have held him tighter and given him a bigger kiss when he got home.’ We can only love our loved ones today, we know not what tomorrow will bring. My deepest condolences, and you are in my prayers.
I read about your Jill on the FLYlady website. Like so many others who are signing here, I have been deeply touched by the story of Jill’s death. But more than that, I am inspired by the stories about her life. I pray that some of Jill’s loving spirit will bless each recipient of her organs. I pray that Jill’s children will always remember the loving, laughing,fun-loving Mom who went sledding with her children , and that wrapped securely in God’s loving arms, they will overcome the trauma of witnessing this tragic accident. I pray for comfort and strength and continued wisdom for Jill’s husband. And finally I pray that God will grant to each of her many friends and loved ones a measure of Jill’s spirit, so that Jill’s love and charity, indeed all her best qualities, will live on. God bless you all.
My heart goes out to you during your time of loss.
In the love of God, may you find strength and peace…
In the prayers of friends, may you find comfort and love.

To the Waddell family, my heart goes out to you for your loss. Jill may have left her earthly body, but her heart lives on in you and the children. She now watches like an Angel over you every moment.
A member of FLYlady, who brought this sad loss to my attention.
Our thoughts & prayers are with you at this time. We learned of your loss through the Flylady website and although we do not know you, please know that Jill’s untimely death has reminded us of what truly matters in life – our families.
I will hug my 2 children a little tighter tonight and we will pray that God lovingly welcomes Jill into his fold.
God Bless you all.
My deepest condolences to Jill’s family and friends. After reading about Jill, she was an Angel on earth. She will just have to watch over you from above. Knowing Jill is up in the heavens with God and Jesus, maybe the hurt will slowly pass. Keep your babies close. My Deepest Sympathy…Another Flybaby…
I am so sorry for your loss. When Flylady brought this to our attention on her email posts, my heart rose up within me, and I know that this is the way I want to be remembered, for having fun with my children and being of service to others. Jill’s life and passing have truly touched my heart. May God bless you.
I am so very sorry to hear of your great loss by Flylady. I pray Jesus will comfort you. Carol McGee
I read of your tragic loss via Flylady and I am so sorry for your family. I can only imagine how difficult this time must be, I must thank you however for reminding me how precious life is and to make the most of it. And that is always a great gift for all of us. Thank you for sharing that gift with all of us. Your family is in my prayers.
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Jill. I can tell that she was a much loved person and will be missed by many. I am very thankful to learn that she is now in Heaven with her Heavenly Father, which is such a comfort. I learned of this from a Flylady email, and read the newspaper article and the obituary. I will pray for her family and friends that God will bring His comfort to each of them.
There are no words of comfort in a disaster of this magnitude. All I can say is: you are all in my thoughts.
May the peace of God, which passes all understanding, guard your hearts and minds in this time of loss. May He give you beauty for your ashes, joy for your sorrow, and strength for the days ahead. May you find comfort in the memories of Jill, knowing that her life touched so many, and that you will meet again in His kingdom.
Karen (a Flybaby)

I am very thankful to learn that she is now in Heaven with her Heavenly Father, which is such a comfort. I learned of this from a Flylady email, and read the newspaper article and the obituary. I will pray for her family and friends that God will bring His comfort to each of them.
just a note to express to you and your family how sorry I am for your loss. We truly never know when it might be our last day on this earth. It sounds like Jill was a wonderful wife, mother and friend and I am sure she will be remembered dearly. Please accept my sympathy for your loss. I read about Jill via our wonderful flylady emails and wanted to send you this note. Sandy
I was so sorry to hear of your loss through Flylady. The world needs people like Jillian but God must have needed her help in heaven, too. I am sure she will be looking after the family she left here on earth. Death cannot break that bond. Her donation of her organs cetainly shouts to the world what a wonderful person she is, and I use ‘is’ deliberately.
We too learned of Jill through Flylady. After reading the guestbook and news articles, it is clear what a blessing Jill was to everyone around her! What a wonderful example of love she has shared with all of us!
Praise God you have the knowledge and promise that you will see Jill again! May God comfort you and ease your sorrows.
Ps 119:76 Let yout love comfort me, as you have promised…
That is our prayer for you!
Alalia & family
I am very sorry for your loss. I prey that in time you will be able to see through this tradegy and remeber all the wonderfull times you shared with Jill. Please remember that even though Jill is no longer here in body, she is still here in spirit, and will be watching over you and your family and keeping you safe. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
A Flybaby, UK
Oh, God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come.
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our Eternal Home.
I learned of you through Marla when I read about this ‘Born Organized’ person telling her it was just so simple – just pick up after yourself! That was over a year ago, and it has been so helpful. Now I read of your beautiful daughter’s passing and I am saddened. I can’t imagine it, but when I read her obituary and learned she was a Christian, my heart rejoiced! At least a quarter of a million people have now read about Jill, her faith and her life. What a testimony!
I just received the news of Jill’s death a few days ago and can’t tell you how sad I feel for you and your family. My daughter,Andrea and Jill were the same age with two children and I can’t imagine how I would cope. Anyway,I know you are a very strong person and with God’s help you will get through still one more tragedy in your life. My prayers are for you and with you in the days that follow.
I am also a flylady in Canada and I am very sorry for your loss. I am a few months older than Jill and it really has hit hard, knowing that it could always be our last day. We also had a family member leave us yesterday, and I know it’s hard. Remember that she has touched many people and she was happy. That what is important. I also have a 3 and 15 year old and can’t imagine how the little ones deal with such sadness, but keep her memory alive and always remember the good times. I am deeply sorry for you loss.
At times like these, we realize just how precious and fragile life really is. Her generous gift of organ donation has allowed the light of her life to continue to shine. May God bless you and comfort you and fill your heart with beautiful memories that you will smile about for many many years.
I read from Flylady this morning about your loss, and I’m so sorry. I am grateful that you allowed Marla to share your story with us. I’ve commited to having some serious discussions with my husband about our wishes. We’ve procrastinated, but no longer. Your family will be in our prayers. May God bless your family richly in this time of deep sorrow. Kim Stone
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Jill’s life has touched the lives of many. Her way of life was an inspiration to other mothers to spend what is important with their children – Time! Jill’s life was a beautiful gift, and her gift of life after death is indeed one of the most precious gifts there is, I pray that you may find some comfort in knowing this.
My hope is that those precious children grow up knowing that their mother loved them more than anything in the world. May you find God’s peace and comfort in this difficult time and know that your dear Jill watches over you from a place of joy and rest.
A loving Flybaby
My deepest sympathy to Jill’s family. I read about Jill on the flylady web site. She must have been a wonderful person. May you look to family and friends for comfort during this difficult time. Always remember that she will always be with you in spirit.
I am so sorry for you loss-I heard of this tragic death via flylady. Times like this makes us realize to enjoy every day as if it is your last.
WOW! What a wife,mother, and daughter Jill must have been. I can’t imagine just moving there 2 weeks ago and already putting people,like family members first. Good for her!!! She wasn’t organizing her boxes. She had spent her 15 minutes if she was a flybaby or with that BO (Born Organized) mom, she may have inherited the skills to be able to spend time with the important loves in her life. May we all learn from her what to devote our time to. Best regards, An Iowa flybaby
May God bless you and help you through the tough times. Although I never met Jill (heard about this through Flylady), there is no doubt in my mind that the world was a better place because of your loved one. We will keep you in our prayers.
As a fellow Sigma Kappa (EE chapter from UGA) and a fluttering Flybaby, my condolences to you and your family for your loss. Thank you so much for sharing her life with others through organ donation!
I learned about Jill from the Flylady site. She is an inspiration even to a stranger. Love endures forever. Her spirit will be watching over you. Even so, to have her wrenched so suddenly and so untimely…I shall keep her, and her family in prayer. Ann S.
I am so sorry for your loss. May God be with you at this time as always.
Your mother is remembered by flybabies all over the world.
How much she loved you and enjoyed spending time with you!
Bless you all in your time of sorrow,
Thank you for sharing Jill’s grace-filled life with all of us. May His peace and grace uphold you during your grief. My father was a donor – it’s a beautiful way to stay in love with life.
I didn’t know your loved one, but I read about her on the internet. What an inspiration she is to so many and her legacy lives on. I am so very sorry for your loss and I pray for your comfort and peace. I am blessed to hear her story and it has touched my life.
Dear Tim and Family,
Jill has touched so many people, not only in her life but also in her death. God bless you and comfort you.
Another Flybaby, Katie.
To Jill’s family,
My prayers are with each one of you. I am so sorry for your tragic loss. I am a stranger to you, but not a stranger to grief and loss. May the love of Jesus Christ bring you the strength you need in the coming days. Your family will be in my prayers for a long time to come.
In God’s love, Bo
I heard about your loss thru flylady. I am so sorry and I want to extend my deepest condolences to Jill’s family. I am also a mother of young children and Jill being able to spend so much time with her children is really an inspiration to all mothers. What a beautiful person that is up in heaven now with Jesus her savior. I know Jesus has a plan for her husband and children and I will be praying for them and the entire family as well.
In his love,
My heart breaks at the thought of losing a mother, wife, daughter and friend. Heavenly Father’s earthly mission takes us, at times, down paths that we otherwise would avoid,moments that we feel are best left unendured, but endure we must. It is so easy to question the intentions of what is Gods plan for us, for Jill. What a blessing Jill was to all of those around her and continues to be today. My deepest prayers are with you. I pray that soon the memories of her life will overwhelm the grief and you will find joy and the ability to continue knowing that part of you would not be the same without her. Thank you for opening this up the the Flylady network of people, it is hard to appreciate the ones that you love sometimes and then something like this happens and we realize that time is short and precious. All of my love and prayers.
I am a flybaby and just read of your loss. I am so sorry, but keep thinking what a special mommy Jill was to her children. You must be so proud of your daughter. My prayers are with you and her husband and babies. May you all feel the blessing of peace that all the flylady prayers are bringing you.
I was so touched by Jill’s story that I had to tell you how sad it made me feel. I’m so sorry for your loss. Jill’s family will be in my prayers tonight for strength to get though this troubling time and for understanding, that it’s not in our hands, what God has planned for us. We just have to keep believing it’s what he wants for us. As horrible as it is to go through, we still must go on and do good works. Keep the happy memories in our hearts with Gods love and that’s where Jill will be found everyday.
Remember the good times spent with Jill and all the rest of the family at Uncle Garnets in North Carolina. I know that she will be greatly Missed. Love and prayers for the family and children.
May God bless your family in this life and the next. My sincere condolences to you; I will be praying for you today.
I sit here with a lump in my throat, reading all the beautiful entries that testify of the love our Savior has for us, especially in times of sadness and grief. Jill was obviously, from what I have read about her, a very loving, beautiful Mother, who has inspired me to give all I can to my children (I have 5 young boys). I am now reminded to not let a moment pass without reminding my family how much I love them. May your hearts be healed, in knowing Jill is with her Father in Heaven, free from pain, able to watch over you and your family. My love goes out to Emily and Reid, may they always remember what a wonderful mother they had.
With love in Christ,
Dear Bill, Sandra & Family, I just learned of the death of this lovely lady from my Mom. I worked with Jill’s Grandmother, Mary Lou Phillips, for many years and know that she was in heaven to welcome Jill with open arms. I will keep your family in my prayers during this difficult time.
God Bless your family and comfort you every moment. Jill seems like a lovely soul with a wonderful love for others and herself. Thank you for raising, supporting and loving such a person into our world, thank you for sharing her story with us online and through FlyLady, thank you for allowing her generous and giving nature to continue with her donation to others after her passing. I will continue to think about her and pray for you. Please hold on to the joy she gave you when sadness comes to mind, and know that you have many people globally and locally praying and caring for you in this time. God bless Jill and her family. Pamela Spicer
To the Waddell family,
I read about your loss from Flylady. I am praying that you feel God’s love & strength right now to help you through this. I know Jill’s life is an inspiration to me, putting her children first & the love for life & family she had is so awesome. I am grateful to FLylady for sharing Jill with all of us. I am praying for all of you. God Bless you! Krista, Ohio
Jill was a Mother that we all strive to be. My prayers are for you, her husband, children and other family, that you find comfort in knowing that she is now with Jesus and helping to prepare that home for you. May God surround you with the comfort of His Great Love.
Another FlyBaby and a fellow horse lover.
Dearest Family –
I send you my deepest sympathies. Though we have never met, I weep for you. We will never understand why such a beautiful, loving wife and mother passed away so soon – remember that she is whole now and celebrating Life Eternal with her Lord. I pray that God cradles all of you in the palm of His mighty hand, and gives you peace in your hearts.
Love and Blessings,
Elizabeth (a FLYbaby)
So sorry about your loss, she sounds like an amazing woman. May God strengthen you and carry you through the upcoming days.
Bessie, a Flylady
I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to you & your family. May the love and prayers of all help comfort you. God be with you
My deepest condolences to your family.
I am a member of the FLYLady family and read Jill’s story. It sounds like she was a wonderful woman, someone we should all model ourselves after. May you find comfort knowing that you will never be without her, she is closer to your heart than ever and you will see her again someday.
You are all in my prayers.
May God grant you all His peace, now and in the years to come. My prayers also are for you and Jill.
In Christ our Lord,
Beth (a flybaby)
Sadness from a flybaby.
I’m so inspired by Jill’s life. I read about her from FlyLady. I’m holding on to my children a little tighter today and looking forward to the arrival of my husband. God Bless all of you.
I am a 37 yr old mom of 2 little boys. I met Jill this morning when I opened my email from Flylady. What a beautiful inspiration her life is and will continue to be for all who knew her and will learn about her. Thank you for sharing her story. She will not be forgotten. God Bless your generous and loving family. You are in our prayers.
My sympathy and prayers are with the family. Read about Jill from Flylady website.
She’s walking streets of gold.
My prayers are with you as you continue walking the streets of earth with the pain such a loss brings.
I only know of you through FlyLady but wanted thank you so much for donating Jill’s organs. Through tradegy, you brought life to others. My mother-in-law is with us today because of a family like yours. Thank you and bless you all!
My heart went out to your family when I read of your tragic loss via Flylady. Unfortunately I have experienced the pain you are in. My husband died very suddenly at the age of 32 leaving me with an almost 3 year old boy and an unborn baby girl. That was nearly two years ago, and I can truly say that God brought me through all of the terrible pain and grief. It will be a long road ahead, but God still has plans for you and your whole family. Jer. 29:11 Draw close to God. From what I’ve read of Jill, it sounds like she was a tremedous person. Celebrate and remember her life, grieve, and move forward. My husbands memorial website is http://www.michaelfostermemorial.com It was helpful to us to put up this website to help us and others to remember him. You all are in my prayers.
We have never met but I send my deepest sympathies. I have been introduced to Jill thru Flylady. I am a stronger and wiser woman today. May you find peace in knowing how many share in your loss.
I do not know this family, but read about Jill’s life on the Flylady website. I want to express my heartfelt sympathies to the families, but from reading these stories, I can be confident that I will meet Jill, my sister in Christ, some day. Her story, is an encouragement to me, to always take the time to play with my kids. The Lord numbers all of our days. With sincere sympathy,
Dear Tim, Emily and Reid, My heart goes out to you and your family. I am so sorry for your loss. What a wonderful mom Jill was to have made spending time with her family a priority! My mother died when I was only three. I have notes and stories about how she touched people’s lives with kindness. It has given me insight into the kind of person she was and I cherish this information. Be assured Jill is with the Father in heaven awaitng the glorious day when the roll is called up yonder and we will all be together! I will be praying for you.

My prayers go out to you and your family. I am thankful to know that Mrs. Waddell is a Christian and is resting with our Father today. I am a 35 y.o. mother of 4 children who subscribes to Flylady. Today my husband and I will prepare for the ‘what ifs’ in life as you did, and we will also add you to our on-going prayer list. Every week from now on we will lift up your family in prayer. We love you, even though we haven’t met. Rose and family.
I prayed for your family when I learned of your lovely Jill’s untimely death through the Flylady website. May God hold your family close in the coming days. ‘The Lord is close to the broken hearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit.’ Ps. 34:18.
Please accept my sincerest condolensces on the loss of your loved-one. Though I did not know your wife, she sounded like a wonderful person and someone that loved many and was loved by more. FlyLady sent out a note alerting us of her passing. Your entire family will be in my prayers.
God bless you!

I, too, learned of Mrs. Waddell’s passing on Marla Cilley’s Flylady website. From reading the obituary and notice, it’s obvious that Mrs. Waddell was well-loved and a very loving mother. Her family will be in our family’s thoughts and prayers.
God bless you and your family. Jill’s life will touch many, including my own. I shall not take my time with my son for granted. What a tribute that she was loving her children when her Savior called her home.
We are sorry for your loss. You will be in our prayers daily. We go to church with and are family of Linda and Joe Austin.
Though we haven’t met your family, we were nonetheless saddened by reading of Jill’s sudden passing.
(link from Flylady’s mailing list)
We share your belief that God will remember Jill for the good person she was. Please accept our condolences. Derek and Nancie Kite
Our prayers our with your family. If we can be any help with the children please call us. 681-0119
God bless you.
Jill was a special cousin that will be missed. She was always smiling, thought of others and a very caring person. I will cherish the memories we have shared growing up together. To her family – I love you and will continue to pray for you, just remember, she is in heaven with lots of her family.
My sincere sympathy to you and your family.
Although I have never met Jill, she has touched my life and made a differance. After reading of her passing (on-line via FlyLady) I filled out a blank donor card I’ve been carrying around for 2 years. Hopefully I will be able to impact as many lives with my life as Jill did. She is truely an inspiration. I will be praying for your family and hoping God grants you peace.
Love in Christ,

My deepest sympathies to you all, and also thank you for sharing this with the rest of the world, reminding us of what’s really important in life. Faith in God and Love of life was my guiding light when I lost my boyfriend in an avalanche in France, 4 years ago, on Feb 6th.
With deepest condolences,
Flybaby in Norway.
Dear Emily and Family, I can not even begin to express our sorrow for you all. You will remain in our thoughts and prayers. Our son Logan, who is in Emily’s class at school, came home and told us about his friend’s mom. You are on our hearts. Our sincerest sympathy,
Rhys and Stephanie Chittick
I was deeply touched when I read about Jill in an email from Flylady. Words cannot express the sadness of losing a loved and sometimes words cannot console, either, but music has a way of bringing comfort and peace to the soul in a way that nothing else can. It helps us to love, grieve and heal. Josh Groban has many songs that simply touch my soul and let me know that love is everlasting and this life is not the end. There is more and we are here only for a short time to experience love, life, joy and pain and then we will be reunited with the ones we learned to love on earth. The joy in feeling pain is that you realize how wonderfully and deeply you loved and still love. I have 2 of Josh Groban’s cds and they are called, JOSH GROBAN and CLOSER. A few of the songs that have touched me are, TO WHERE YOU ARE…YOU’RE STILL YOU…WHEN YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME…YOU RAISE ME UP…
When we lose a loved one, it feels as if the world should stop and everyone should be feeling the loss of such a great person. Yet, people go about their day seemingly untouched by the earth shattering effects you are feeling. It is because they don’t know. I did not know until today about Jill. And I can tell you now, I am feeling the effects of her passing and I don’t know her family. Because of what I have read about Jill, I will gather my babies in my arms and squeeze a little tighter and love a little deeper. The moments I spend with my husband will be more cherished. The world is spinning a little slower for me today in rememberance of Jill.
May God be with you until you meet again!
To her husband and babies, thank you for sharing your wife and mother with us. She lives on!
I wanted to share my deepest sympathies with your family. You all will be in my prayers. I too learned of your loss through Flylady. Just know that Jill’s life has touched thousands of people she never met in person. My children are about the same age and I have been reminded of a precious lesson. I will cherish each moment with them just as Jill made time with her children a priority. Thank you for allowing your story to be shared. You will never be alone in your loss. I pray God will comfort you in the coming days with the beautiful memories you have of your time with Jill. May God bless you all.
I can’t wait to meet Jill my sister in Christ when we see Jesus face-to-face. Just know that her life and testimony has touched me and others all around the world and we are all praying for you and your family. With deepest sympathy,
A Southern CA FLYbaby
Tim, Emily, and Reid,
We are so very sorry to hear the sad news. Please know that you all are in so many of our thoughts and prayers. Although we can’t explain why these events may occur, we hope that you will find comfort in knowing that through the grace of God, we will one day be in a place that knows no pain, nor loss, nor suffering. Romans 8:18 encourages, ‘For I presume that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory that will revealed in us.’ I will certainly miss seeing Jill’s bright face at the kids’ checkups, but I know that she is with God.
To the Jameson and Waddell families,
I am so sorry about the loss of Jill, though I never met her. I heard of your family’s story through Marla Cilley. Please know that you and your family are in the thoughts and prayers of so many. Take comfort in the life your daughter led, in the memories you have of her, and in the hope of seeing her again. May God hold you in the palm of His hand during this time and in the days and years to come.
It is with great sympathy that I extend to you a heartfelt prayer over the passing of Jill. I remember Jill from playing as a little girl at our home as she played with my sisters, Rachel and Darah. Jill also tool dancing from my mother who loved Jill very much. She will be missed by everyone who knew her as she was so very sweet and kind. Our prayers of comfort and love will continue.
Our thoughts and prayers will be with your entire family during this difficult time. We cherish the friendships with the Phillips and Austin families and will be thinking of you all.
Jill’s story so touched my heart. I just want to say that your family will be in my prayers as it faces the long uphill climb back to the brightness of days she would want you to have. In deepest sympathy. From one of ‘Flyladys’ family.
EMPLOYEE OF CAROLINA INTERNAL MEDICINE. My prayers are with you and family during this difficult time. Being a mother of 2 small children, I know the love of Jill will shine through the broken hearts. GOD BLESS
To Jills’ family:
I didn’t know Jill, but learned of her life and death through Flylady, as have many, many others. Jill must have been a most wonderful person and reading about her has touched my life today. Please know that there are people out here praying for your family and feeling your sorrow. May you be blessed with the peace that only God can give.
I am so sorry for your family’s loss, which I heard about through Marla Cilley. Jill sounds like the woman and mother we’d all like to be. Reading her story this morning inspired me to cross everything off my to do list and devote the entire day to snuggling and playing with my own kids. Bless you for allowing Marla to tell us about what a gorgeous human being Jill was, and inspire us with her sterling example.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and the children. Her smile and friedship at work made the day a brighter place. I enjoyed working with Jill at Centura Bank in Arden.
I was good friends with Jill and Lynn in High School and the years immediately afterwords. This comes as a shock to me as it probably does everyone else. Jill was probably one of the kindest human beings I have ever met. My heart goes out to Bill, Lynn, and Sandra.
I didn’t know Jill, but I feel like I do. I read about her story from my Flylady email and had to click on the link to this site that was provided in the email. I feel terrible for what happened to Jill, because she will be missed so deeply by her family, especially her beautiful babies… However, I feel very lucky to have been touched by her remarkable story and I have taken a step back today on my own life and will appreciate today a little bit more than usual. She sounds like the kind of person I would have liked to have as a close friend. May her spirit continue to bless those around her as it has those who, like me, never had the pleasure of meeting her.
I know that our words cannot replace what you have lost in Jill, but am in prayer for all of you. I know that God will be with each of you and hope that his comfort will sustain you during this difficult time.
Thank you so much for the donation of Jill’s organs to those in need.
We are so sorry to hear about your loss..Jill was a great person..
My heartfelt sympathy to the family.
Be assured that Jill is now in the presence of our dear, sovereign Lord.
Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
I will keep good memories of Jill. I always looked forward to seeing her and Lynn at our family Christmas gathering each year to catch up.
We do have comfort in knowing that Jill is in the arms of Jesus.
I love you all.
I was deeply touched when I heard about Jill’s death via the FLY Lady. This is to let you know that people like me across the country are praying for her loved ones to be comforted and praising God for her beautiful life on earth. Surely she has gone to a better place.
I’m so very sorry!
I am very sorry about Jill’s untimely and accidental death. She will be so missed by her children and husband.
I heard about this via FlyLady and want to say that I am emailing all my girlfriends who go sledding with their kids so they can be more cautious from now on.
I met Jill through Reliant a year ago. She had such a sweet spirit and was very proud of her family. She was a great person to be around. We will greatly miss her on our team and she will be greatly missed as a person.
To the Waddell Family: I did not know Jill but I am a member of Flylady and she posted a very touching e-mail about Jill. I will keep your family in my prayers during this very difficult time.
Jill was a counterpart of mine at Reliant Pharmaceuticals. She was always extremely friendly and upbeat whenever our district got together for meetings. I met her for the first time at Reliant’s national sales meeting in Dallas, TX in February of last year. Jill went out of her way to make me feel comfortable in my new surroundings with Reliant, and she immediately stuck out to me as a sincere and caring person. My thoughts and prayers go out to her husband, children, and family.
Sincerely and regretfully,
Jill was a wonderful example of motherhood at its best. My prayers are with your family. May God grant you much comfort. (Love and prayers from another flybaby touched by your story)
Jill was such a beautiful person. I came to know Jill by being a good friend of Tim’s, she made me a friend without question. My prayers and deepest sympathy to her loved ones.
I am deeply saddened to hear of your family’s loss. I did not know Jill personally, however, through the description of her from my personal mentor Marla Cilley, I feel as though I did. While I cannot say to your family that I know how you feel, I can express the deepest of heartfelt condolences for your precious loss. Based on what I read, Jill was a true gem, no make that TREASURE. I am a mother of 5 children and while Marla constantly encourages me to make time for my family, Jill’s story inspires me to want to do it NOW. To stop putting off precious time that should be spent with my babies, and give them many happy and loving memories to carry with them through their lives. It sounds as though Jill truly loved everyone, not just her family, as if there was no tomorrow. We can all learn from this very loving and unselfish woman of God. Your family will be in my constant prayers, as all of Jill’s deeds, will forever be in God’s heart. He is a God who does not forget.
May God Bless your family and provide peace to you all in your true time of need.
Kevin and Celaundra in Southern CA

I’m shocked and saddened by this terrible loss to a family I’ve known and loved for many years. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Jill seems like a beautiful and wonderful Wife, Mother, Daughter and Friend. My deepest sympathies go to her Family, Husband, and Dear Children.
I want to thank you for sharing her life with the world. Her story has touched my life and because of her I will hug my 15 year son just a little tighter tonight. And call my dear daughters and tell them that I love them. When they ask why; what’s wrong? I’ll just say it’s in memory of a precious lady named Jill, that I read of today on the web. She loved her family and children very dearly and I also love you very dearly.
May the presence of GOD surround you all and bring you peace during this time of grief and mourning.
Smoky Mountain Flybaby
I am so very sorry for your loss.
My prayers are with the Waddell Family, as I am so sorry about your loss. Jill was a wonderful person, and I will never ever forget her and working with her at Reliant.
As a mother of 2 young children myself, I grieve for your family’s loss. In reading about her life, it’s obvious she left behind a legacy of love for her children, her family and friends, and her community. May God bless you and sustain you during this time of heartache.
I just met Jill this last October through work at a training function. Even in that short time, I was lucky to have known her. She was very kind and supportive, and it was obvious how much she loved her family My prayers are with all her friends and family. She will be missed by all the lives she touched no matter how brief. Love, Brittany Birdwell
I hope your family feels the love and sympathy of thousands who were touched by your story. May God’s love and care surround you always.

I read about Jill today through Flylady. I immediately stopped and took a moment to think about all I have to be grateful for. I did not know her but what an inspiration she was to all of us who feel like we know her. I will be praying for her family and friends. Thank you for sharing this wonderful woman’s life with us all. It reminds us not to sweat the small stuff and to appreciate the simple things in life.

I read about your wife/daughter’s death on flylady.net and wanted you to know that my prayers are with your family. I know that you will see her again, and that God will comfort you and give you peace.
Dear Jameson and Waddell families,
I went to school with Jill, and I am so saddened to hear of her sudden passing. While we were not close friends, we were often in the same classes with each other. She was always kind and friendly, and I remember her love of horses.
I pray that you will have the special peace that only God can provide at this time.
Vicki Long Sprouse
What a joy it was to know Jill and to call her friend. She was a truly amazing woman. I can’t think of a time that she didn’t have a smile on her face and joy in her heart. She will be missed and remembered, always.
Jill and I used to ride horses and show together in high school. She was one of the sweetest girls in the school. We shared alot of good times together. I’m so sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful person to all who knew her. My deepest regards to your family. I will pray for comfort for all.
Dear Jill’s Family and Friends,
It is with deepest sympathy that I write to all of you, especially Jill’s husband and two children – you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I am comforted by the knowledge that even though she had passed, Jill was able to continue touching and ultimately saving the lives of those around her with her organs that were so generously donated – thank you. God bless you.
(A Chicago Flybaby and Organ Donor)
I am a friend of Sandra’s, and I have met her beautiful daughters and grandchildren on more than one occasion. Sandra is so proud of them all, and I have heard many stories about them. I only wish I had some words of comfort for you now in this terrible time. Any words I have are inadequate, but I pray that you will find peace and that your wonderful memories will sustain you.
Dear Family of Jill,
There are no words to express the sorrow of your loss. Losing a loved one is very hard, but God will bring peace in time.
I heard about Jill through Flylady, and although I never met Jill can extend my prayers for your comfort.
I like so many others pray for God to touch your hearts with his healing hands.
I noticed Jill and my only child(a son)share the same birthday;
he is one year older. He is a career soldier and has already been to Iraq twice and just recieved deployment papers again. God bless you and keep in His care.

I pray that God will grant you the peace of knowing that this is just a temporary parting, and that one glorious day you will be reunited with her once again, in Heaven.
I read about Jill’s accident through Flylady and I want to offer you my sympathy and prayers. As you struggle through this difficult time be assured that even strangers are lifting you up in prayer. The loss of your wife and mother is a tragedy and we mourn with you.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Thank-you for allowing Marla (Fly Lady) to share her memories of this wonderful woman. i have been able to confirm my decision to become an organ donor.
Although I did not know Jill, or any of the family members, I wish to extend my heartfelt condolences. The FlyLady shared Jill’s story and it touched me. May God ease the pain of your loss.
Our deepest sympathy is with you and your family at this time. My sister and I grew up with Jill and Lynn and know how much Jill will be deeply missed. God bless your family.

In His love,

Jill and my daughter, Seline showed horses together what a lovely girl she was. She always hold a special place in my heart. My prayers are with you.
I also just wanted you to know that I am praying for you. Jill has inspired me to spend more time with my children. It sounds like Jill knew Jesus as her personal Savior–for that I am so thankful and means I, also, look forward to meeting her in our eternal home together.
My heart goes out to you and especially to your children. I do not know you, but you are in my prayers. God bless you.
I am also a 36 year old mother of two and will say a special prayer for your children as I tuck my children in tonight.

I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved wife and mother. My prayers are with your family during this difficult time. Her legacy will live on through her organ donations-perhaps this will convince more to sign up and to discuss ahead of time with their family. My spouse and 3 children are willing to be organ donors along with me. I read about Jill on flylady.net. She is an inspiration to others. May God comfort you.
Sandra, I can’t begin to tell you how sorry I was to hear about your loss. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this terribly difficult time. When I heard about Jill’s accident on the 11 o’clock news it gave me cold chills, but I never imagined that I would know who her family is. I am so sorry.
My deepest condolences to you and all your family in this time of loss. I can’t imagine the pain you are going through. Please be assured you are in my prayers
While I did not know Jill, I know her mother and how very special Jill was. My Thoughts and prayers are with you.
I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. I cried when I read this. I’m a also a 36 year old mother, and I also went out to play in the same snow that Saturday for my 18-month-old son’s very first snowfall. I’m not a praying person, but my heart goes out to those precious children, and my check is going out to their educational fund.
Sandra, my family is praying for you and Jill’s family. There’s nothing I can say to ease this pain but please know that our hearts go out to you and your family. May you relish in the good memories, when the pain has resided some. All our love goes to you and yours,
My prayers are with you. I’m sorry to hear about your loss.
I have read of your loss through Flylady. I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I may not have met you at any of the Clerk Schools since 1997 but I wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am the clerk from Perquimans County. May God give you the strengthen you during this time of sorrow.
Dear Lynn, We were so sorry to hear about Jill’s death. You and all your family are in our hearts and prayers.
I am very sorry to hear about your loss. Jill was always a wonderful co-worker and friend to me. I have a great peace knowing that Jill was in church and that we will see her again. I pray that you will let God be your source of strength during this time and in the future. You, Tim, and your family are in my prayers. God Bless, Donna
To Jill’s family and friends,
I am sorry for your loss – but awed by what Marla Cilley wrote about her and how she had her priorities right. What an inspiration to me and others. I have 3 small boys (3, 5 and 6) and am so ‘busy’ puttering around the house (inefficently) that I often neglect to take time to play with my boys whom I adore. They were fortunate to have her as a Mom, even if the time was cut so short. Thanks for the reminder of priorities and for your generosity in saving others’ lives through organ donation.
I am the Clerk to the Board for Mitchell County Board of Commissioners. I just wanted to express my deepest sympathy to you and your family. My thoughts and prayers are with.
I am very sorry for your loss. Your family will be in my prayers tonight.
I am the Town Clerk in Wake Forest, North Carolina. I learned of this tradegy through our Clerks Listserve and read about the untimely death of Jill on WRAL-TV in Raleigh. I did not know at the time that Jill’s mother was a fellow clerk from the western part of North Carolina. My heartfelt sympathy to everyone. I do not know the family personally but when a fellow clerk is suffering the rest of us clerks ban together. I pray that God will give you peace and strength during this time. I know she will be greatly missed. God Bless.
Know that someone who knows what you are going thru is praying for you. I lost my oldest daughter 9 yrs ago to liver cancer. Lost my youngest and only son 5 years ago in a accident. They were both 37. They were born 4 years apart and died 4 years apart.
If you ever need someone to talk to let me know.
To Sandra especially, and to all of Jill’s family and friends…While I don’t know any of you personally, I feel I share a bond with Sandra as a fellow Clerk, and as a mother. I will keep you all in my prayers and close to my heart.
I learned about the life and death of your beautiful, loving daughter when I opened my flylady e-mail today. I am so sorry about your loss. My heart aches for you and your family. I have said a prayer for you, and for Jill’s husband and children, and will continue to pray for you to feel comfort and strength. As a young mother myself, I feel compelled to say…. Please hug Emily and Reid as often as possible and continually tell them ‘Mommy loves you!’
I will send a donation to their education fund.
You are in our prayers. The Vanderbilt Mortgage Team.
Life is so precious. Prayers and condolences from a FlyBaby.
As Town Clerk of the Town of Rowland, NC, I just wanted to let you know that our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family during this time of sorrow.
I read about Jill’s death on the Flylady website, and she sounded like such a wonderful young woman that I felt I should express my condolences. May God help her family through this time of sorrow.
Sandra, our hearts are filled with sadness for all of you and every prayer is that God will keep you all very close and fill you with His love and comfort during these very trying days. Jill has now ‘earned her wings’ and is sharing in the blessings that He has promised us all. God Bless you all………..MJ
I was so sad to hear about your loss. I am a Sigma Kappa from WCU and Jill was in a pledge class after me. She was truly a special person who could always make you laugh and smile. The world will be a darker place without her! In Sigma Love, Theresa Graham Emma

God bless you at this time. I will pray for you all. I read about Jill on Flylady.net and was moved by her story. My sincerest condolences.
My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. Depend on God and your faith to help you through this most tradgic loss. God bless and be with you all.
I also heard about Jills passing through the Flylady site and wanted to let you know that her story made me take a break from focusing on my work and go hug my sick baby today. I am so sorry for your loss, you will be in my prayers.
…A book of remembrance was written…for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels….Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.’ (Malachi 3:16-17; Psalm 116:15 KJV)
I wanted to let the family know I have been thinking of you since learning of Jill’s death and send heartfelt sympathy. I am sure memories of pleasant times are proving to be treasures in your hearts, and I pray for solace concerning the disquiting times. ‘…Comforted together…by the mutual faith,….faith in the Lord Jesus….COMFORT ONE ANOTHER….’ (Romans 1:12; Ephesians 1:15; 1 Thessalonians 4:18; 5:11)
‘The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you…. The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.’ (2 Corinthians 13:14; Numbers 6:24-26 KJV)
We don’t know each other but I am a Flybaby so have read of Marla’s admiration of Jill’s mother. I just want to extend to the family my concern for your loss. However, as Christians death is a victory and Heaven is our reward. I pray that God will be very close to all of you during this time. Life here is short but eternity is forever! May your tears be healing and may you be comforted.
Sorry for your loss.
You do not know me but we have a friend in common (FLYLADY). I just want to say stay strong and keep the faith, you can over come this with the love around you.You and all the ones that love Jill will be in my thoughts.
Well done thy good and faithful servant. Enter into thy rest.
