Hello, You do not know me. I read your story while researaching NUt Midlane. I just lost my son December 9th 2014 to Nut Midline lung cancer. He was only 19. My heart goes out to you and you have my sincerest sympathy. Our child also bravely fought this insidious disease but only lasted 3 months. He was a singer and athlete too like your daughter. It is tragic. All we can do is hope that they are pain free in heaven. We will pray for Jennifer and your family. If you would like to talk please contact me. Susan Cox mother of Calvin G. Cox II [email protected]

I knew Jennifer for only a short time but the impression she made on me and my family will last a lifetime. I'll miss her ringing my doorbell coming to visit my son Alex. Her laughter, sense of humor and her open friendliness on our first meeting will be remembered always. She was a truly wonderful young lady and we feel blessed to have had her cross our path.

I didn't know Jennifer personally, but I knew some of her extended family. When I heard of the fundraiser at Mirabella's I was anxious to be a part of the cause. Such a young girl fighting so hard; she's inspirational. That night, she smiled and radiated her inner beauty to everyone. She'll live on, I've no doubt. Rest peacefully, Jennifer. To the parents, I can't even begin to imagine what you're going through. No parent should ever lose a child, but my prayers are with you. May she be with you every day making you strong.
