Jamilyn wished to celebrate her 16th birthday in style with 150 of her family and friends. Jamie had always wished for a very special Sweet 16 party with a Luau theme. Guam's Fiesta Resort provided the perfect beachfront setting for this event, held June 15, 2013.
Jamie was accompanied by an entourage of 14, mostly friends and cousins, dressed in comfortable island style clothing. Jamie was escorted by a hula dance troop, who then performed a special hula just for Jamie. There was not a dry eye in the room when Jamie spoke to her guests, welcoming them and thanking all those who have played a role in her life. It was truly touching. Soon after, Jamie's best friend played ukelele and sang a song written just for Jamie.
