Oh Jennifer. You had such an amazing heart and mind. You were a pillar of faith, honesty, strength and caring in my life as well as others. You remained unfettered by illness still loving, traveling and sharing. I will miss you sweet friend. I will miss your beautiful face and that funny cynical laugh that made us laugh even more. I will miss picking up the phone to hear your voice and make travel plans. I will deeply miss you my friend.
Ken I will be ready if and when you need anything. Girls talk about your Mom and remember her love and laughter. May God be with you all through this hard time. Jennifer has earned her Angel wings and will watch over you all. Rest now sweet Jennifer. I love you all.

I will always know it was such an honor to be able to
Be with her when she wanted to go to Helen Ga and to see all the covered bridges. We had so many laughs with her they will forever be part of my memories of her. To see and hear her contagious laugh will always be the highlight of the trip for me. Love and prayers to you
