My family and I want to say that our prayers and support are with you and your family. This is never an easy time for friends and loved ones, but we know we can all lean on each other. I remember all the times that we would have family get together and how sweet and gentle aunt Jennie would be to all of us. Such a special soul that will be missed dearly. Sorry we can't make the services because of our obligations at work , but please know we are with you in heart.
