  • Jennifer Brown - Dear Jamie,

    Hello. I just wanted to thank you for sharing your personal story with us. What a difficult time it must have been losing your father, mother and then your dog Izzy. I have met you a few times and had spoken with you with my mom at the Science Museum when they have their holiday festival over the past two years. I just want to tell you that I truly love the work that you do. I will never forget the first time I saw your work and it was of the elephant amidst all of those delicious orange candy peanuts. You truly have a creative way of expressing how the animals you create feel and that is true talent. Your work brings smiles to peoples faces and it is a true joy to read them in addition it makes people feel good. Again I love your work and I look forward to seeing what cake creations you come up with in the near future.

    Take Care, Jamie.

    SO very sorry for your loss. Izzy was a member of your family, so you take as long as you need to grieve. Make no excuses. Your grief is your humanity.

    Here’s hoping you feel a little better day-by-day. You ‘ll still grieve, but eventually you’ll learn to live w/ it. What a powerful pet Izzy must have been. Bless her in Doggie-Heaven!
