Strength, courage, determination, love, laughter, a contagious smile, "Hun", "Sweetie", the sparkle in her eye, generosity, a beutiful peach prom dress, and jelly bellies are the memories that she has blessed us with.

There are those who live twice the number of years, yet give back only a quarter of themselves. Jen touched so many and gave so much she will live on in our hearts and our memories. To all her loved ones - we mourn with you at the loss of such a beautiful and giving soul, but we will celebrate having been able to enjoy the embrace of her love. Humbly, Forrest and Carolyn

Terry, words seem inadequate to express the sadness you must be feeling...but know that "Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal, but LOVE leaves a memory that no one can steal." You have my deepest sympathy.
