It's been a long time since we lived across the street from each other on Eastern Avenue, but the memories remain. I'm sure Jennifer will be missed, but she is free from her pain. You certainly have my sympathy and I pray you will have a Blessed Christmas.

So sad to hear of Jennifer's passing. Memories of her when she was at Spartan - her low laugh, quick smile and how much she loved her dogs! Finding peace that she is now pain free.

My sympathy, Sandi, Fred, Chris,and Andy for the loss of your sister. Jennifer was always a part of our childhood adventures. We hold a lot of memories from those years on Eastern Avenue. I am praying that you'll be comforted in knowing she's free from suffering. In spite of this pain, may you have a Blessed Christmas.
