Douglas,I hope you get this. I do not have an address for you. It has bothered me I did not figure who you were until the funeral was about to start and I did not want to interrupt those last moments of you seeing your mother. I was so touched by the eulogy you gave --your words described your love for her and her so perfectly. Each chat we had, I heard all about you--and later about Jordan. She was SO proud of you and you just touched on all her wonderful qualities. How proud I am also of you becoming a nurse and also in getting up and giving this beautiful tribute about your Mom. Your Mom was so loved by her CWL classmates. Many of us have kept a special bond from us living and working together those three years and we all send our deepest sympathy to you. Blessings to you always, Douglas.

I met Jennie when we went to Atlanta to take the entrance tests for CWL and she has been dear to me since that day. Reunions and phone chats with her were always so special. To Douglas and the grandchildren, she always was thrilled to tell me about you--so proud of her family. And Sara, she had such a bond with you. She enjoyed life to the fullest and I cherish the friendship we had.
In thanksgiving for having a dear friend like Jennie in my life. May God comfort and bless each of you. Jackie Jenkins
