I will truly miss Jenny. She was a bright shining star in everyone's life. She sacrificed her spare time to help those who needed solace and always had kind words for everyone. I know she is in God's Kingdom looking out for all of us and I hope that I will be reunited with her when I pass on. Her family and friends have my heart felt condolences.

I will certainly miss seeing you seated in front of me at mass. Since you have certainly acquired a place In heaven, you are now whole again.

Dear Zeringue family, Grandma, was such a beautiful lady, inside and out. I always felt blessed to see her, and visit. Praying for your peace and comfort in the days to come.
