TBC, PAGE 3 OF MEMORIES:
Jen loved her home in Alaska, her truck and mostly her driveable lawn mower. We spoke on the phone many hours while she drove that thing around drinking her beers. You had to be prepared to conversate if you answered har call too. She loved talking lol. She loved planting strawberries and flowers with Ava and seeing the moose on her property. She has wonderful friends in Alaska and at her work place whom she loved.  I will cherish the memories my sweet friend. I have a million more in my heart. I love you Jen, my BFF. Peace be with you. 💜

TBC, PAGE 2 OF MEMORIES. Well we thought so. One time she was staying at my house for the weekend and snuck out. I didn't feel like going. My mom new we were up to shanningans so came in my room. Well, Jen wasn't under the bed. We were busted. My mom grounded her! We cracked up every time we talked about that. She was grounded a lot. I should of been. Jennifer was fun all the time. Anywhere we were it was certain we would have a blast.  Mom and dad took me with them everywhere. We were so spoiled. One time dad took us to Lake Powell and gave us a few matches and twigs and told us if we wanted to eat to start the fire. It was hilarious because WE STARTED ONE and cooked our little dinner. He was tickled. We understood the lesson.
Cruisin' jammin in the Nova with Jessica in tow. Oh Heavens! Too much fun!
After she had Jessica and moved in with Aunt Linda eventually, it was the best thing for her. Jen was grateful and was the best mom to Jessica she set out to be or could be at that time. Jessica is funny and witty like Jen was. She loves her girls and her voice was full of joy when she talked about her adorable grand daughter Ava "oh man Stace you should see how smart and cute this little one is."  Then she would giggle. I'll miss your giggles. Jalea she referred to as "my beautiful old sole". She said Jalea was so kind and wise at a young age.  I think Jalea was like 12 when she told me that. Justice, she referred to her as "kind of a rebel" but totally understood her. She was proud of Justice for growing into motherhood, if you will.  Jen had dreams and always moved towards them. She wanted to come back to AZ for a few years now. I always tried to talk her out of it because of her great job. You're home now dear friend. You can rest in peace.
She was tough, one of the strongest people I know. She thought ideas through  when making decisions and the older she got she would tell me "what would dad do?" We would laugh and I knew dad would be proud of her for that.

My beloved friend. I will miss you wholeheartedly for the rest of my life. I called her Jen, which she hated but let me get away with because she called me stace. I didn't mind.  We met at the age of oh 7 and 8 in Kachina Village, Flagstaff, AZ. We lived 1000 miles away from each other, well it felt like it, we had to walk back and fourth to each others house. Rarely, she would meet me part way at the Aspen trees in Kachina. Mostly, I walked to her place because I loved being around her family. She loved the color purple, the scent of  vanilla, my moms onion dip and molases bars recipe. She was simple and unique. She loved her mom and dad and all other family. She idiolized her older brother Joel and prayed for and tried to keep track of Manny. We thought we were bakers when we were kids. We would make oatmeal cookies and yes we burned batches of them because we would go upstairs. Then mom (Mary) would holler or bang on the 2nd story floor with the broomstick [that was dads (Dennis') thing too] "girls you can't bake and then leave the kitchen". Jen loved AC/DC by the time she was 12 and me too, I was 11. She loved Rock N Roll. Country music wasn't her style. We always snuck in her brothers rooms and stole the AC/DC album and what ever else we wanted from their rooms. We we're cool.  She hated tanning outside in the beautiful fresh air of Flagstaff. When her ice tea was gone, oh yes she drank it fast, she would say "that's enough sun for me" and go in. She didn't like fancy food either, fancy anything. Her favorite restaurant was Olive Gardens all you can eat soup or salad. Dad always said "I can wrap anything in a tortilla and you kids will eat it." So true! As we got older our parents worked tirelessly to keep us out of trouble. It didn't work. Us girls lived and always had too much fun! We enjoyed parties at the Cinder Pits, sneaking off to Sedona, walking down to McDonalds for the new BigMac (with forks in our pockets for protection)and being normal kids. TBC

Diane said it best. I totally remember her triple kind soul. I can't ever remember her arguing or fighting with anybody. I have so many good memories I don't know where to start. I never forget how she was such a good mom,we were driving back to Flagstaff and she had to pull over to change Jessica's diaper. Most of all I remember how happy she was to find out Stacy and I were getting married. My deepest condolences to her family and friends.
Love you Jennifer
Love always 💖

I have never met anyone like Jennifer. She did not like to argue or fight. She had a heart of gold in so many ways. Jennifer would do anything for anyone. She loved her job and the people she worked with. Her daughters were very important to her and she loved each one you you. Her granddaughter, Ava, was very deep in her heart. She will be missed by us all. Jennifer your dad will miss you most your morning calls and the talks the two of you had daily. Love you little Angel.
