My husband David and I have many wonderful memories of Jennifer. We have known her almost 20 years. She was our neighbor when she lived in Texas. We enjoyed living across the street from her. There were many Saturday mornings when she came over for coffee we would chat and laugh for such a long time and then we were off shopping . We also shared many fun meals together, at home and in great restaurants. My heart is broken for Tyler, Jennifer's family, and friends it is also broken for myself and my husband. I will always miss her, I will miss being her friend and sharing our lives together even if it was on the phone. I will always love Jennifer! May she rest in peace and rest in comfort with our Lord and Savior throughout all eternity.
Tyler, may God bring you the peace and strength you will need to help you through the time of grief and for the rest of your life! You will always be in my prayers, I have loved you since you were a young boy and that will never stop!

Jennifer was such a giving person, always wanting to share something new that she had learned or read about. Her laugh was contagious. We shared many cups of coffee together talking about our love of Jesus. I know she is at the feet of Jesus now and probably laughing at something funny he has said. Grace and peace to her family as you walk through this time.
