  1. I never met her in person but know she was a beautiful spirit by the love expressed by someone close to her. To the family, I know there will be a spot that could never be filled cause it remains reserved just for her but allow that same place to express and share the love she would have shared. Well wishes.

  2. My deepest condolences to Stephen,Aubry Larry, Tammie, Paula, Johnny, Kay,Galen, Leslie, Michelle and all the family. I so wished and prayed that Jennifer would make it through this ordeal but God had better plans for her. I know she is in heaven bursting with joy before her Lord and God whom she came to love so much in the last two years.
    I miss you, Jennifer. I can always see you in my mind’s eye as Mary, our Blessed Mother. You touched many hearts. I thank you for bringing so much joy to us and above all I thank the Lord for welcoming you into His Church and giving you the privilege of receiving the Sacrament of His Body and Blood at the right moment! I could not be at the Mass of your resurrection into eternal life but I will carry you in my heart always.
    Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul rest in peace, Amen.

  3. Stephen, we were so suprised to hear of your loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. We had a lot of good times meeting you and Jennifer while yall were out geocaching with your kids.

  4. Everyone that came up to me and expressed their condolences shared with me how much they loved Jennifer. It didn’t take long for me to realize something all over again. Jennifer was so easy to love. She had that glow about her that would just draw you in and give you just what you needed to get through any moment of difficulty you may be having. She told her sister and me when all of this started that she wasn’t scared. If something didn’t work out she knew where she would be going. I didn’t want to let her go no matter where she was going. As her dad, I never wanted her to suffer at all but she was a fighter right till the end. I’m glad she’s not suffering any more and that helps me get from one day to the next. Thank you for a lifetime of memories Jennifer. I miss you and will always love you. Dad
