My dearest Tony and Becky, Please remember that Our God Jehovah is close to the broken hearted ones.
We know that Jillian is in the safest place for her to be now, and that is in
God's memory. Just like you I am awaiting the resurrecton, where i can see my Cheri and Paul and greet Jillian again. She was a precious Jewel who I had the wonderful blessing of knowing and I will always hold her dear in the corner of my heart. Can,t wait to give you a hug.

Oh Becky and Tony, I'm so sorry. I'm sure Jillian knew how much she was loved. I remember the vivacious young girl who was quick to smile. She brought sunshine to my classroom each day. My love and sympathy to you. Robin

Becky, I feel the need to reach out to you and your family, as you know having lost our daughter Jenna at the age of 32 was completely, unimaginable, nothing short of horrendously unacceptable and most of all "Why God would you take our daughter instead of me and why would you want her to leave behind two such beautiful children? And the struggle honestly continues for me EVERYDAY!! And there really isn't any right, good or meaningful words for anyone to express their sympathies! Believe me all will do their best trying but I know for me I'd rather they pray for us and check in after the first month or so!! Anyway Becky please know that if you need that one shoulder of that one person who has suffered the likes of what your family has please please feel free anytime day or night to let me help you any way I can!! Am so very saddened by your loss but hold tight to the knowledge that God will see you thru the worst of the weeks and months to come!!!
