Not sure what to say?

Dear Feild, Anna and Kate,

There are the fondest memories of you all at Waldensian in Valdese.
My prayer and in the days ahead that you all feel the comfort of GOD's grace.
Jenny touched my life and that gift will always be treasured.

I always enjoyed sharing conversations with Jenny. We were in a clergy small group together. She was not only a good listener who shared helpful insights. She was also willing to be open with us in sharing her own life story. What a beautiful soul.

Jenny was a bright and caring person, and a first rate Teaching Elder. Now she is with the Lord whom she loved.

Field, how much I loved Jenny and her spirit for the presbytery challenges when we were working with PEVA. Also love you and your Mother. My prayers and thoughts are with you. I can only imagine how difficult this is for you and your girls. Blessings and prayers for strength, grief and healing during this season.

I knew Jenny in high school and college and was so sorry to hear of your family's loss. My heart goes out to you. Jane Wooldridge

Dear Feild, We are sending all our love and prayers to you and the girls. Jenny was and her presence remains an incredible light in our church and in Valdese. May God bless and comfort you all during this time.

Jenny was a wonderful pastor and person. kind, intelligent, caring -- I love her.

Feild, Kate and Anna, we are shock and sadden. Our prayers are with you. We celebrate the life Jenny led and those many many lives she touched. Martha & Bruce
