  1. I was so very blessed to call Jenny a friend and a great neighbor for well over 30 years. She had a heart of gold and will always hold a very special place in mine. She will be missed.

  2. Dear Cousins So many memories, so many good times. When I think of cousins your family is pretty much the only ones that come to my mind. I just wanted to say your mother has a special place in my heart and I’m so thankful she was so good to my mother. They had a dear relationship and they loved to go shopping together. The malls in heaven better be prepared because my mother’s shopping partner has arrived.
