Gene, Michael, Sarah and family - my deepest condolences on the death of Jennifer. She was an amazing young woman! I recall with fondness her trips to the Veterans Home with her mom to paint murals on the walls of Markword or Pat's numerous stories of her - she was certainly proud of both Jennifer and Michael! I loved seeing J3 artwork displayed around town and loved her use of vibrant colors - so much like her personality! Heaven gained another angel for sure. May God grant you strength in the days and months ahead and may you cherish and find comfort in the many wonderful memories you have of her. I can see Pat and her smiling down on you with love and adoration.
