Dear Jennifer's Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Jennifer was such wonderful person. She was the reason why I made it thru English Class at Page High School. Jennifer had such a unique and witty way of looking at things, and I will treasure the times we had together. You are in my thoughts and in my prayers.
