Jenny, sweet Jenny, always thinking of others & comforting them. Jenny, I was so excited when God Blessed me with you , my first girl cousin, after 8 boys being born!!We had so much fun at our gatherings at Grandma Stevie’s, and the at Forrest Park in Brazil to our family gatherings. And we would anxiously wait for permission to go to the bridge to play after we ate dinner. And later years , the last Sunday in May 1967, ha ha, I asked you your thoughts about Ron, beings he was at our family gathering for Billy Ray at your parent’s. I will always hold you dear to my heart, and keep many precious memories in my remembrance of you. Love and condolences to your husband, Jack, and to your brothers, Billy Ray, Donnie, and Roger and their families. RIP ♥️😔

Oh, Cuz, you're gone too soon. We lost touch over the years but I was so very sad to hear of your passing. Sympathies to Roger, Donnie, and Bill and your whole family.
Remember the good times playing at the park in Brazil for family reunions or down at Grandma Stevie's when we'd all get together.

We grew up together at FriendlyGrove Church and remember going over to her house to play with her and the brothers . I remember the day the family moved away, just waving goodbye to childhood friends . Her smile and personality was beautiful.
