We Love Seeing Photos!

Don't Forget To Add Your Photos To Your Profile










We all take different paths in life, 
but no matter where we go, 
we take a little of each other everywhere.

Follow the path back to your JCJC friends ...



"Friends can come in and out of your

life so quickly . . . yet leave footprints and memories in

your heart forever."




One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering. - Author Unknown
