Jill really was a hard worker and really made you feel better about yourself. She had a very kind smile. Her voice was like β€œhome” - comforting and not a hint of malice to it. I’ve worked w/ Jill for a year now but never really had a chance to sit and chat w/ her until these past 2 months, her last 2 months on earth. Though 2 months sound like only a moment, they are, to me, lasting moments. Rest In Peace, Jill. I will never forget you..

I was shocked to see this. I am so glad we met all those years ago. Although we hadn't spoken in a few years, I often thought about you. We had some great times/memories I will never forget. RIP my friend.
