    My thoughts go out to the family, love ones and friends of Jodi as the hearts are full of burden and hurt right now.

    there is a group site for parents of murdered children (POMC) http://www.pomc.com/ that helps a lot in this time of need. It helped me and i am even starting a chapter here in California.

    I lost my son last year to a murderer also. Of couse the lead detective messed it up from the beginning, dropped the ball, but in Jodi’s case you have several men and women from several professional and well trained departments working on her murder. They are working as a team, not a one man show as in my case.

    its plain to see that its someone close to her, that knew her and a town resident, that did this terrible thing to this precious angel, but………. at our lord above reached down moments before and wrapped her in his arms and stopped her from being afraid and stopped her from feeling any pain.

    … bless the family… dan

  2. Hi my name is Allyson.
    I have a friend in my class named Kathryn Webb and she told me about Jodi Parrack one da in in class when we were getting snack. I was so sad for Kathryn to go through this tragicle thing. Jodi was a friend and Family child and also a great child….

  3. I feel so sad 4 the loss of the family & friends whose of those luved her very much……

  4. sorry 4 the parracks, she was a nove girl…

  5. jody was one of my good friends and my respects go out to the parrack family. just know that her friends feel your pain, though not as great as yours.

  6. I am the father of Willa Lynn Barber. She was run down and killed by a dunk driver. Michael tastula of Vandalia in 2005. She was waliking down to road with a friend when struck. The driver attempted to leave the scene. She is in the Consantine cemetery. Our familles now both belong to that special club that no one wants to ever be involved with. It’s something we will have to live with the rest of our lives untill we see are loved ones once again. My sorrow goes out to the friends and family of Jodi. This is a long road to go down. Closure can never be found. Willa was a Freshman at Constantine High School. Jodi is in Heaven now and I allways ask Willa to take her hand in their eternal life,

    i miss u jodi

  17. i loved her smile and her laugh and i love her eyes

  18. i wiss she was here because she dont deserve it and because she asked my my cuzin ray mccann out and he said ask him the next day and he was gonna say yes but he never got to see her to tell her but then he found out what happened. im sorry ray

  19. Its been almost an year and its time this town gets some answers. I know I am not the only mother that worries their children are going to school with a murderer. From the first day this happened everything about this case “screams” a kid did this. Where would a kid put a dead body? Cemetary, I dont see an adult acting like this. To many have said Jodi was too smart to wonder in to the cemetary (someplace she hated) with someone she didnt trust. WHAT HAPPENED? The department recently released a statement that there is new forensic evidence that clears some and identifies others. Forensic evidence is evidence and who does it identify. Better yet why dont the killer just spare everyone that hurt and worry and just come forward. If this were a kid, be strong and confess, there is help for you. Give the story of what happened so this family and community can have some answers and peace of mind, closure. Jodi deserves the truth, her family deserves the truth. This has gone on too long.

  20. Someone knows something and is choosing to keep someones horrible secrets. Who can live with the burden of a secret that pertains to something like this. Its just wrong, WRONG! No one on the face of this earth that can do something like this and not own up to it definately does not deserve someones loyalty and trust. That someone that knows something please speak up. PLEASE! Jodi as everyone nows was such a great kid and never would have harmed a soul, a honest and good girl. Get this over with and give the family, friends and entire village the truth. THE TRUTH!!! Why do people have such a hard time with the truth? Who could live with this for an entire year and not speak up? You cannot live a healthy life knowing you had a part in this, even if you know a little it would mean a lot to SO many people…

  21. I would like to thank everyone who shares my concern its nice to know people still care most of the time i feel like no one does everyone just keeps on living like nothing ever happen and im suppose to just move on with my life the problem is she is my life and i dont know how to move on i feel like im crazy thats the only way i can be sane but im trying really hard to do the right thing to be someone she would still love and be proud of because i love her and i know sooner or later who ever is responsiable for everything that happen to my beautiful baby will pay for what they did i just have to trust in the lord for his redemption i cant handle it i have to leave it to god through god all things are possiable and i know shes still here with me i just cant see her il have her forever because she is apart of me i could have never had a better daughter il love you forever and always princesss

  22. Jodi’s Mom,

    I am so sorry for your great loss. My heart hurts for you and your family. You are so right God is in control and will take his revenge. He is a lion and a lamb. The lamb that forgives and takes care of his children. The lion that will destroy evil and evil doers that rise up against his children. I don’t know how you feel or what you are going thru and I wont even pretend to. I just know you are devistated. The bond between mother and child is the stongest of all bonds on earth. I know the side of losing a Mother and not having that bond anymore. I see the pain my grandmother goes thru and its heartbreaking.I pray God grants you peace in your heart. My deepest sympathys to you and your family. Again my heart is breaking for you.

  23. Jodi’s mom, I pray that you do keep leaving it to God to help you through this trying time. I am sorry that you feel that people don’t care about you but I know that they do but the one who really counts is the Lord, he will never leave or forsake you.. Remember that God knows your pain, he sent his son to die for us and also Jesus knows and he will ask God to bring you through it. Just keep on trusting in him.
    God bless you. She will always be a princess

  24. I pray for the family and friends of Jodi, she was a very special, sweet little girl. I also pray they find the person who did this, she deserves justice. Ive watched my daughter suffer the pain of loosing a great friend at such a young age and there is not a day that Miranda dont think about or talk about Jodi. I believe alot of the kids pain and worry will ease just a little if the killer was caught. They will all miss her alot, but they will also be relieved that the evil person who hurt her and took her from us will be locked up forever. Knowing that thats what Jodi would want.
    Love is like a hug, so hold on to it. We love you and miss you Jodi!!!!!!!

  25. jodi we will always remeber you they are even having things at the school and i wish you at least lived till you got to see your teen lifes your that never to you i just miss you so much we love always and you jo and remeber that . jodi i wish you were here still here to remeber all the good times

    love always
    Mariah

    Love is like a hug so onto it1 jodi

  26. Miranda,
    Dont worry one day they will find this monster and whoever it is will pay! I worry for you alot because of the way this has affected your whole life. Ive never lost a friend this way, and Im not sure how I would react, but Im proud of you for being the loving, caring, and respectful person youve become, and when the day comes, the day that Jodi’s killer is found, I will be there with you to share the joy that justice will serve. Im thankful for having you as my daughter.
    Love is Like A Hug, So Hold on to It!!!!
    Love Mom

  27. Dear Jodi’s Mother,
    I am also sorry that you feel that nobody thinks about Jodi anymore because it is not true at all. That little girl will be etched in the hearts of everyone who lives in and around Constantine. My son was in the same class with her and he always talks about her. He is worried that the killer is still out there watching and waiting for his next prey. We are all as a family going to her candle light gathering tonight. We are all so sorry for this to have happened to Jodi, and her family. I can’t even imagine how I would be if something happened to one of my children. I don’t even want to imagine the pain that you must be going through, because the pain that the people of this town feel is unbelievable!!! Not every person knew who Jodi was, but they will always, always mourn for her loss!!! We all feel a emptiness in our hearts since she was taken from our little town. Please know that people all over the state are concerned about your family and praying for this person to be found!! Please know that!! Please don’t give up on God because HE is the only one who can get you and your family through this. God Bless you and your family.

  28. God be with you Jodi’s mother, and your family, and anyone who was close to this innocent child. I have had a brush with tradgedy… but nothing like this type of loss. I do know that the only person that will carry you through this is our Lord above. Footprints is so true when it decribes how our Lord carries us in times that we are unaware. Even though you feel lost… he will carry you. Know that he has Jodi soul with him… and awaits the day he can hand her back to you.

    I have learned the hard way to talk to God whole heartidly and when I do he touches my heart… and even the unbearable pain you must be feeling today and lonliness will be lessened with the touch of our Lord. God meant for something good to come out of this even though it may be hard to see right now and accept. Keep praying Valerie.

    Just remember to be strong… and positive… and ask God for strength and healing… he will surely prevail.

    Myself, Justice and Faith have all prayed a prayer for you and Jodi today. We pray for peace within you, we pray for the evil person who committed this act be put to justice so that you can atleast know the answers to questions that need to come to peace within your heart.

    God Bless!!!

  29. Jodi’s Mom, you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God grant you peace and get you throu this terrible time.
    God Bless You

  30. I was Jody’s classmate in 5th grade. I sat right next to her in class and we where sort of friends. Everyone misses her so much and we all hope that this don’t happen to someone else. We pray for Jodi’s family because of their loss. I went to her vigil tonight and me and my friend Kyle were remembering times that we spent with Jodi. We all hope that this person who killed Jodi will confess to the police. I am scared that he will come back and hurt someone else. In my prayers I pray that this person will get caught soon.
    Jodi’s mom, please know that people thinking about you and hope that you are okay.

  31. God determines who walks into your life….it’s up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go.

    Father, God, bless Jo and her family with whatever it is that You know they may be needing this day! May their lives be full of YOUR peace, prosperity and power as they seek to have a closer relationship with you and heal their broken souls.

    God grant us the serenity to accept the things we will never change, and courage to change the things we can and the wisdom to know the difference.

  32. jodi will never be forgotin in this town. this affected the whole town friends and family.she was a beautiful little gurl and very nice she would never do ne thing to hurt ne one.she was a good friend to my family and like a sister to my cosin we will never forget her.

  33. we all love you ! we hope they find this monster fast and i mean it !why did this have to happen to you every one misses her so much she is a good friend and i wish so many rumomers werent spended all around. we always remeber love is like a hug so hang onto it !

  34. we all miss you jodi and we always will. you were a great freind and probibly a wonderfull daughter like i said you were a wonderfull freind WE ALL MISS YOU JODI!!!!!!!!

  35. Jodi’s Mom,
    I have followed this and can only imagine the pain you must be suffering. I know that your daughter is with you. She sees you every day and she hurts for your hurt. She loves you and wants you to be happy. There is no pain where she lives and noone ever dies alone. Know that those who have gone before her were with her to show her the way. No parent should ever face what you have gone through–but know that she is safe on the other side–and that other side is as close as your heart. I know you feel her with you–because she is. So very sorry for your loss.
