Dear Lou and family,
I never met you all but I did know Jennifer when she was a child. I babysat her most of her young years on Benner St and then when Kay and Steve moved to Melrose. I was so devastated to hear of this news. She was such a sweet girl and so full of life. I know she will be truly missed by all of you. Rest In Peace Jennifer.

I will miss Jen, she enriched my life as an important part of my Copper Beech family. “When you speak of her, speak not with tears, for thoughts of her should not be sad. Let memories of the times you shared give you comfort, for her life was rich because of you.” "When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight."

Jennifer, my dear, dear Niece and God Child: You were a blessing and a ray of sunshine to whomever you met. When I saw your face, it was always smiling. You were like a glue that held everyone close. You helped when we didn't even realize how much we needed you. You gave of yourself and you gave your heart. Jennifer, you were the best parent and best wife ever. You were loved as a daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece and cousin. We will always remember you, love you and pray for you. We know you are now with the Angels. Lou, Sophia, Dominic and Vincent, you are in our prayers and our hearts forever and ever. Love, Aunt Agnes, Lisa, Chuck and Susan

Jennifer was a wonderful, caring, kind and loving person. She was an awesome sister to her 4 brothers, a faithful loving daughter to Kay and Steven and an incredible mother to 3 beautiful children. Most of all Jennifer was the heart throb to the love of her life, her husband Lou. Every one of us who knew Jennifer was blessed by her presence. She was an inspiration to many with a spirit of hope that few possess. Her smile and laugh will be remembered forever. Jennifer, you will always hold a special place in our hearts. We miss you. We love you.
