Jenny was a good friend of mine in high school. Unfortunately we lost contact many years ago but that doesn't matter. She was always a beautiful spirit, had a wonderful smile & enough love to fill a house! This world will surely miss you but the heavens definitely got an angel!

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. The days may seem hard to get through right now with your loss, but the love you had for Jennifer she will live on in your heart and mind forever and with that love, it will give you the strength you need to go on. Stay strong! From a long time classmate and friend we went through all 12 years together, she will be remembered by me as long as God allows me. Tracey R. Snyder
