  1. Jerry, Martha, Richard, Andrew & Mike,
    So sorry for your loss. Jenny was a great friend, more like a sister. I will miss her deeply. We had so many fun times together. I’m hear if any of you ever want to talk.

  2. Richard, Andrew, Michael, Jerry, & Marty – I will be keeping you all in my prayers as you grieve for the loss of your Mom, your daughter. I am going to miss her & our visits. We didn’t talk as often as we once did, but we always fell into an easy conversation no matter how much time had passed. She was that kind of friend & I will always remember my little Sis & how we laughed together. I know how proud she was of all of you boys too, & how much she loved you all. Keep good memories of her always & she’ll never really be gone. With my deepest sympathy, Mary
