Dear Costello Family,

I understand that this is just another message out of many that you have but I feel led to say this. I was so intensely moved by the SI article that I felt like I had to talk to you. My heart goes out to you and your whole family.

Your wonderful friend Sherri pointed me to this page after I found her on facebook. Find comfort in knowing Jill has impacted this high-school Junior who lives across the country in Lawrenceville, Georgia.

I can't imagine what you are going through  right now but I hope this message finds you well. Your daughter has touched my heart. I read the entire journal section over the past hour or so and she had such a spirit of love and joy that I cannot imagine what it would be like to have met her. As I find out today is her 23rd birthday. I can only imagine how weak and fruitless these words of encouragement must be but you should be very proud of your daughter. She is truly amazing.

You are truly in my prayers and I just feel so led to reach my hand out to you. Be secure in knowing God has a plan for you. Just as He had a plan for Abram, just as He did for Moses, just as He did for his son Jesus, and just as He did for Jill. He loves you and while this is all very difficult you can find rest in his ever-loving arms.

"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." --II Corinthians 4:16-18

This verse carries a message from God with it. God is giving it to YOU in this moment. It speaks a powerful message.

God is prompting me to tell you this:
Please email me anytime if you need anyone to listen. I would love to hear from you. I know it is strange but I feel led to say it.


In his everlasting love,
Sherri Oakley

Hello, Costello family,

I haven't checked in here lately because it is hard. But a sweet, young man (a junior in high school), found me through Facebook today because he was trying to find a way to reach you because he was so moved by the SI article. (I referred him to this site and BJALCF.) I bet you hear from him! So, anyway, I checked caringbridge. It is so beautiful to see the heartfelt messages from those people who Jill has inspired and who don't even know her. I know you are in the midst of the holidays and Jill's birthday. I hope you find some comfort in knowing how many people Jill has inspired, including me. You inspire me, too. My words feel worn out, but I will be there for you.

Love, Sherri :)

Jill,
While we've never met, the impact you've made on me & many others is obvious.  I finished reading your story in Sports Illustrated over the weekend & I've been struggling ever since to find the words to express my gratitude to you & your family for sharing your story.  As a 31-year old father of 2 young boys who is currently going through treatments for colon cancer your story has truly inspired me.  Her courage & strength gives me chills.  The approach to life that Jill shared in her journal & again in SI is a motto we can all live by, regardless of health issues:  “Your life is happening right now and this is the only moment you can control.  This is the only minute that really matters.  If you are constantly dwelling on something that happened in the past or feeling anxious about the future, you are missing out on YOUR LIFE.  Do what makes you happy in this moment and your life will be full.”  I have adopted this outlook as I progress through my own treatments & definitely appreciate the strength it provides.  

To Jill's family & friends, I'm extremely sorry for your loss.  It is evident that she was special & you should be proud of her.  I hope you can find solace in the fact that Jill's story is reaching far & wide & is an inspiration to people all over the world.  I thank you so much for sharing it with all of us; you & Jill will remain in my family's prayers.  Jill's strength, courage, attitude, & far reaching impact is evidence that Jill won her battle with cancer.  Thank you & God Bless

I just finished reading Jill's story in the latest Sports Illustrated. What an amazing young woman, who faced her challenges with so much courage. Those of you who knew her personally should count yourselves as blessed for having the opportunity to share life with her. Her time on this earth may have been far too short, but oh the impact she has had is inspiring. God bless.

I just finished reading Jill's story in this weeks Sports Illustrated and I had to keep putting it down towards the end to keep wiping the tears rolling down my face.  What a courageous person!  OMG, what an example she set for everyone that faces any kind of adversity in their lives.

May God bless her and her family!

Jill, although we've never met, your story is and will continue to be an inspiration and a blessing to many of us across the World. Your courage, strength and your overall positivity is unbelievable. To Jill's parents, you have a lot to be proud of. Jill will be looking over you with her big contagious smile and although I can only imagine how difficult this must be for you, I am sure that she would love nothing more than for you to smile back every day. The same goes for the rest of her loving friends & family.

Jill, your journey has put a lot in perspective for myself and many others. I was involved with a few charitable organizations until about a year and a half ago when school and work got in the way, but your story has shown me these were just poor excuses to give up these activities. Your battle, your ability to do as many things as you did and still keep a smile on your face has shown me that we have no excuses. I will get involved as will thousands of others that you touched, whether they were in your immediate surrounding or not. That is how powerful your story is and I am sure that you have made your parents extremely proud. We will continue your battle against cancer, I promise. 

To Jill and the Costello family, in a few words, thank you. You will be in my prayers.
 
God bless,

Like many people, I just read your story in Si; I join countless others in expressing my sorrow to your family; I have lost my wife to cancer a little over a year ago and stories like yours break my heart all over again; what a cruel and unforgiving disease cancer is...
The little time of your life that was revealed in the SI story was truly remarkable and very inspirational; rest in peace Jill...

Jill, although I never had the pleasure of meeting you, you are a beautiful, inspiring and strong young lady. The article in SI was a tribute to you and everything thing that made you such a wonderful friend, team mate, sister, daughter, and person.

You and your family are in my family's prayers.

I just read the article about you in Sports Illustrated and having many friends at Cal that knew you, I want to say that you will always be remembered as an inspiration to me even though I never met you.  Your courage and positive attitude are a testament to the human spirit.

I just read Jill's story in Sports Illustrated, and was moved by her spirit, courage and grace.  I am deeply saddened for her family and friends who have suffered an incalcuable loss and hope that the bravery and selflessness Jill displayed will give them some small solace in her absence.  I have made a donation to the Lung Cancer Foundation in her memory and hope many others will do the same and will spread the word about the inadequate research about this killer disease receives. 

As a father of a wonderful daughter (and son) younger than Jill, I know there can be no compensation for the loss of a beloved child, but I hope Jill's parents will always be comforted by the knowledge that all of our lives are finite, and their daughter fit more joy and life into her too-few years than many of us do in four times as many. 

I am sorry I never met Jill, but I will never forget her.

Always thinking of you, even more now that they are FINALLY saying that Lung Cancer is the #1 killer, and they are looking at so many ways to detect it early.  Its because of you that this is happening.  You are always with us, whether it be on our wrist or your pics sit in each one of our cars...we miss you but know that the fight has begun.......love you always

Because I am so lucky to have been friends with you on facebook, when someone tags a photo of you I also get to see it.  Lately it seems everyday someone, somewhere is tagging........I know when I am having a bad day I look at my wristband, and you make me smile, and then it becomes a good day, because I know all the good you did and are still doing. I know you are making many people smile, and you always will......

Sending you a huge smile and lots of hugs and love.......

So hard to believe that we are heading into the third month anniversary of Jill's death.  I am sure the coming days are difficult for your both.  My thought ands prayers are with you and your entire family.

You must have been so proud to see all Jill's hard work and dreams for the Sept 12 Jog for Jill come true.  Such a big turnout! 

I was really excited to see the article on Row 2k about the Radcliffe Crew Team walking for Jill in Boston this fall http://www.thecrimson.com/column/adventures-at-c-world/article/2010/9/21/wcrew-jcostello-column-092110/  .  Such a lovely article.
