Glenda - I was shocked to hear of Jennifer's passing today. I had no idea that she was even sick. I was preparing for a baby shower on Saturday & I guess I just missed it. You are in my prayers as you struggle with this loss. I have not lost a child, but I'm a widow also, so I can feel some of your pain. Please let me know if I can do anything for you . I will try to stop by the next time I'm over that way. Jennifer was always happy and smiling. I saw her every time I went to the courthouse & she always asked about Paige. I haven't been there in almost 9 years since I don't have to run errands for my husband. Please know that she was very much loved and will be greatly missed, but she's smiling with Jesus & I hope that you can take peace in that. Love you, Nancy Magee

We will always remember Jennifer's contagious smile and sweet spirit. It was such a joy to see her at the Mississippi Braves games, dinners and booster club meetings. She was an asset wherever she went. Jennifer, you will be missed.

Jennifer was the kindest , sweetest and most gentle heart person you could ever meet. Whenever you saw her she was always going to ask you how you have been then then she was going to always ask about your family. She had SO much love for family and friends. We are truly going to miss you more than you’ll ever know, we love you.

"There's a sweet, sweet spirit in this place, and I know it's the presence of the Lord. There's a sweet expression on each face, and I know it's the presence of the Lord..."

These are the lyrics that spring to mind when I think of Jennifer. She was a gem!!! I went to school with her, but for some odd reason, I never realized she was Johnny Mac's sister!! I pray God blesses your family during this time!!
