Jordyn Lynn Bushrod 10/11/18 – 10/18/18 My heart is broken. We knew there was issues before birth, but we were ready for your journey. Because of you Jordyn our family is stronger. You were going to be special. We were not expecting or ready for this. Having you leave this earth after 1 week just hurts. My kids are my ❤️ and to never see you again will be tough BUT our GOD will get us through this. We appreciate all the love and support that have been directed our way. Rest in Paradise “Jo-Jo” and I will miss you forever baby girl😘
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Bushrod family at this time.
