In Loving Memory

Anja "Jessie" Peacock
April 25, 1971 - October 20, 2007

In the early morning of October 20 Jessie's life was taken by a drunk driver. Her career was raising our kids so there are no huge professional lauds to list. Just three, really: Jeremy, Jason and Jimmy.

Jessie was passionate about homeschooling and active in that community. She was an editor and moderator for a local news station's online blog. She managed to maintain dozens of friendships over thousands of miles for decades.

She is survived by three beautiful boys and one seriously confused, hurt and angry husband.

I miss you, Sweetie.

I'll update on this blog when I know what is happening and where for Jessie.

As you know Jim our hearts and prayers go out to you and your family. She was a dear friend and my computer buddy. We will miss her smiles and laughter deeply.

Peace & Love

I miss you more than you'll know. I met you on-line by giving your family some items when you were in need and times were tough. We worked together for awhile moderating a group that helped recycle household items and our names made it in the Gwinnett Daily News. I remember how proud you were. Times were indeed very different. Thatís when you guys were having a tough time then Jim became unemployed. Now Jim is doing very well which I knew he would because heís a smart guy. You have 3 beautiful children. You've been a great friend and a fabulous mom. As I write this I find tears running which doesn't happen often. You taught me some things along the way in my life and I'll really miss you. I already do. Your kids are so lucky to have had such a loving and caring mom whose life revolved around them.

I'm going to miss calling you a redneck because you liked Wild Bills. I'm going to miss our little disagreements but most of all I'm going to miss my friend who came into my life by chance. I know you are in a happy place. Please save a spot for me. I can't wait to talk to you again.

I miss you so much already and will do anything to help Jim and the kids.

God Bless you Jessie.

Words can't describe how much I'll miss my online friend.
Your family is in my prayers.

Rest In Peace,

I am so sorry. Also angry, of course. And wanted to send electronic sympathies from an ocean away.

I remember when we met that she was astonished to discover we had the same hair products in our bathrooms. It made me "seem more real" to her, she said.

Dear Lord, how I wish this weren't real.

God bless you, Jim. Jessie is in loving arms.

I simply cannot express how sad we are.

I wish I could send you more than electronic hugs....

Jim and the boy's. I'm sooo sorry for your loss. I met Jessie online as part of the Dutch group. Even though neither one of us had a lot of time lately to stay in touch, we stayed in contact for several years. She was a great person and I loved our discussions. She was not afraid to stand up for her opinions and that's what impressed me. She loved her boy's and if you were her friend, you had a friend for life. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I will not say goodbye to you. I will say see you again my friend. I know your not gone forever you have only stepped away. I have faith you are with us at this very moment. You will be missed by allot of people Jessie. If they have politics on the other side I know your already singing your 2 cents :)

Much love and prayers to you and your family.

Peace forever
