    I am shocked, and deeply saddened at the news of Jodis’ death. I had the privilege of having her for a roommate in treatment in Glenmore, Crookston. It was there we became friends, on a journey of recovery…there where she discovered both her pregnancy, and her heart condition….She was a Joy, totally giving and kind, and I am much richer for having the opportunity to have her in my life! Rest Well dear Jodi.

    Tampa FloridaI thought of song that I felt was worthy for you and the family. They’ve touched my heart on several occasions over the years of others that I have lost, I share with you now:

    JUST A ROSE WILL DO
    When time shall come for my leaving
    When I bid you adieu
    Don’t spend your money for flowers
    Just a rose will do.

    I’ll go to a beautiful garden
    At last when life’s work is through.
    Don’t spend your money for flowers
    Just a rose will do.

    I’ll need no organization
    To make a bid to-do,
    I’ll need no fine decorations,
    Just a rose will do.

    I’ll go to a beautiful garden
    At last when life’s work is through.
    Don’t spend your money for flowers
    Just a rose will do.

    Just have an old-fashioned preacher
    To preach a sermon or two
    Don’t spend your money for flowers
    Just a rose will do.

    I’ll go to a beautiful garden
    At last when life’s work is through.
    Don’t spend your money for flowers
    Just a rose will do.

    Moorhead MnJodi came into my life as a Member of Narcotics Anonymous. We became instant friends. At her best she saved lives. At her worst she saved lives. And in the few moments where she was not at 0 or 1000 she saved even more lives. She has been a powerful presence in my life, in the NA community, through Drug Court, through the rental properties, and everywhere else she stormed through with a cuss word or two, that huge smile on here sweet face, and with enough love in her heart to move mountains. And an addict in denial is a force as big as a mountain and she moved many mountains. I love you Jodi and Jeff and your wonderful children and all the family I have met and not met. Thank you for sharing her with us. My angel she is now!

  19. Ric Harvester says:

    Tampa, Fl Life is a journey. For some it is a stroll through the park, for others it is a struggle to survive on a daily basis. I’ve seen you fight the fight. I’ve seen you give yourself to God. I know that I have heard the gratefulness from the others that you have helped. There must be a large, warm and comfortable chair waiting for you at the master’s table. I am sure that you will be one that will be well recognized for your words and deeds.
    You have given to me more then you will ever know. Though I will miss the phone calls and the smiles I know that you are now free. Angels wings await those that did so much for others. All my love.

    Brandon and I would like to express our deepest sympathies to the whole family

    We’re With You
    When you miss her,
    we’re with you in spirit,
    wondering how you feel,
    hoping you’re coping,
    and getting a little better each day.
    We understand. We care.
    When you’re grieving,
    we’re beside you,
    in our hearts, in our thoughts,
    we’re sending you sympathy,
    encouragement, affection,
    and strength to carry on with life.
    she would want it that way.

    Sandi ~ I found this and thought of you.
    I Love You ~ Connie

    A rose once grew
    where all could see,
    sheltered beside
    a garden wall,
    And as the days passed
    swiftly by,
    it spread its branches, straight and tall…
    One day, a beam of light
    shone through
    a crevice that had
    opened wide ~
    The rose bent gently
    toward its warmth
    then passed to the other side
    Now, you who deeply
    feel its loss, be comforted ~ the rose blooms there ~ its beauty even greater now, nurtured by God’s own loving care.

    I am so very grateful that the girls and I were able to tell Jodi how much we loved her and that we were there to witness some memorable moments before she went to be with God. I loved being her Sister-in-law and am thankful for all of the great times we shared. She was such a loving Sister, Aunt and Mother. May she rest in peace, be free of pain and be an angel for all those who were fortunate enough to have shared her life!

  32. Tiffany Rolfstad -Sleep Inn Minot says:

    Her Journey’s Just Begun

    Don’t think of her as gone away –
    Her journey has just begun
    Life holds many facets
    The Earth is only one
    Just think of her as resting
    From the sorrows and the tears
    In a place of warmth and comfort
    Where there are no days and years
    Think how she must be wishing
    That we could know today
    How nothing but our sadness
    can really pass away
    And think of her as living
    In the hearts of those she touched
    For nothing loved is ever lost-
    And she was loved so much.

    Now you know one of your guardian angels,,,,

    My deepest sympathy to all of you and all my love,

    Tiffany

  34. Allen Harvester says:

    Tampa FloridaIt’s hard losing a loved one, but it’s comforting knowing that Our Heavenly Father wraps His arms around you and keeps you close. You will be missed in our presence, but the memories will cling to our hearts forever, never forgetting for one moment that you passed by in our lives. A friend of mine wrote the following and I share with you:
    I wish Heaven had a phone so I could hear your voice again. I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake from which I’ll never part…. God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart!

    Heuvelton New YorkWords can’t express how one feels at a time like this. Words cannot also express how anyone can do or say a thing to help you at this time. Just know your family loves you all very much. Jodi is with her grandparents and they are all watching over us. At least we can have comfort she isn’t alone. God Bless all of you.
    Your sister Deb, and Aunt Deb
