We knew and loved Jennifer and her parents, Margaret and Albert very well. As missionaries from Mikado Baptist in Macon, GA. Margaret often took care of our son, David when we had speaking engagements out of town. Sending our thoughts and prayers for those who will now adjust to life without Jennifer's presence. A lovely and devoted Christian woman. "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of one of His saints."

So very sorry to learn of Jennifer's passing. We sat next to each other for many years in choir at Tabernacle Baptist Church, Macon, GA. Praying for you, her family, asking God to bring comfort where needed.
