Jayme left us with broken hearts. She battled with this, one in a million, rare autoimmune system disorder. It is so rare that doctors do not know where it originates or what causes it. It is a disorder that is hard to treat because they do not know much about it. It's only being, since 2004, that special attention was brought to it.
She was so brave through it all, for the two and a half months that she was ill. Never complained about anything. Often she said she did not feel sick. The doctors and specialist did everything known to mankind to treat her. But the Lord knew that was impossible, so he decided to heal Jayme on July 10th at 5:59 p.m. Our Jayme is now healed.
She was a beautiful young lady that was full of life and looked forward to her many years to come. But her life was cut short, unexpectedly, and now we must struggle with broken hearts to continue without her. We try not to shed too many tears as she often said "please don't cry, I'm not afraid."
Jayme Bryanda was outgoing, funny, caring and a loving mother, daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, cousin and friend. Anyone that knew her will definitely agree that she will be greatly missed. She had a personality that everyone would fall in love with, always trying to make her friends laugh.
Jayme blessed us with a beautiful son on July 30, 2006. She always use to say "Mom, one day we will know why my God wanted me to have a child so young in life." Well, we now know why. Our Lord wanted her to leave a part of herself behind and we sincerely thank our Lord for the blessing.
She had a passion for life, she loved to attend church, liked dancing, cooking and baking, take vacations, loved the beach, go shopping, but most of all, hanging out with her close friends. She loved to be social, making sure she would introduce herself to everyone in the room, bringing smiles to everyone's face. Jayme had big plans and dreams for her future. She leaned toward a better education because her plan was to work in the medical field to someday help kids with unexplainable illnesses. Not ever knowing that someday she would be on that same list.
Jayme Bryanda Escajeda will forever continue to live in our hearts. She was so loved by her family, she was so loved by her family, she was her mothers "Reina" and her brothers beautiful sister, friend and pride and joy. We love and miss you dearly and will wait for that one day that we can be a family again. Rest in Peace as we know our Lord will keep you safe.
