Raw sadness....tears, tears and more tears...
questions, confusion and some anger.

We’ve always kept in touch over the years but the last seven months we’ve talked nearly everyday and sometimes several times a day.
I saw you progressively getting better, you were fine after McKenna was born. I knew you would be ok and believe you would be alive if she hadn’t been unfairly taken from you.

I’ve known you since you were 13 years old.
I have so many special memories of you and the girls....Holly, Angie, Janie, Annette and Emily, it seems like you were always together.

Regular slumber parties after the football games. Always waking up to ripples of laughter in the house and smelling bacon and pancakes for breakfast. All the fun times we had at the beach house with the monkey and Woody. Study groups, school dances and so many other beautiful life moments.

I feel that you are supposed to be here, this whole thing feels so wrong on every level. Please know that you are etched in my heart and will love you forever.

Hug Johnathan for me he was such a good man and he loved you. I’ll see you on the other
side...Bonnie

You spoke so highly of Jackie, I know she was a great source of comfort for you. I would like to leave my number and ask her to call me if she reads this 407-620-5434

Jennifer was an amazing person. So generous and always willing to help out whenever with whatever was needed. I am so sorry for your loss and so sorry I hadn't kept in better touch with her. I hope she is resting peacefully now and knows she was loved.

Jennifer - You gave everything for your children, I remember the crazy Williams car polls and the weekend you took Skye and Morgan to Winter Haven. Skylar loved coming to your house. I’m sorry I did not keep in touch. Morgan - if you need anything please reach out to Skye. Take care, I know God will keep your children safe. You will be missed.

So many great memories since we were young. I will always cherish our times together with our babies. You were the first person to jump in and help out without anyone asking you to. I joked that you should move in and be my wife. Lol
Such a huge heart! Would do anything for anyone! I will miss you but I know you are in heaven with the love of your life! Until we meet again. ❤

To the Blackwell and Rees' my condolences go out to each and every one of you! Jennifer was a sweetie, she is pictured here with myself and my brother who passed in 2007. Blessings to you and the children. Hugs and prayers! You are loved!

Jennifer, you worked so hard you gave everything to your children every day you woke up to be a mother, every day you took care of Jonathan you lived to be his wife. In the last 6months you were lost without it all, I am so sorry that your fight was so hard and ended too soon. I know you could never get the support you needed and it was harder than you wanted us to know. The world was cruel to you, and kept kicking when you were down. I know how hard it was to wake up every day after Jonathan passed, but you did it for your children, and were doing the best you could being the mom they needed. I watched you become alive again when you knew McKenna’s birth was near, the excitement in your eyes, the love that you gave her in first few days. I wished you could have believed how much you were needed, and loved; you are missed. 🙏❤️😔
