Your friendship was a blessing to me, and you will always hold a special place in my heart. I will think of you and miss you always. You could make me laugh with your sass and wit and you always brightened up my days. I am so thankful for the time I had with you and the opportunity to get to know you.

You had the biggest heart, always stayed positive and just had a way of lifting up my spirits when I was feeling aggravated or upset. No matter what was happening, you knew just what to say.

This week you will be laid to rest, and as we all know, God only takes the best.
Just promise to look after us down here
and save a spot up there for me.
The thought of never seeing you again brings tears to my eyes, even more so, because all of this was such a surprise.
So as I sit here and mourn the loss of a beloved friend, I have to keep telling myself that we will meet again.

I will miss you so much Jen. Few people knew you, really knew you. What most dont realize is just how often you were there for me. We were two of the earliest ones to arrive to work. Last year, as I was going through a difficult time, you helped me through it. You never judged, you were always kind.
I know that on April 5th..Heaven gained a unique soul. We were not co-workers, we were family. We will miss you!!
My thoughts and prayers to family and friends. May peace shine where there is sadness.
All my Love,
