Thank you Stevie. She loved you dearly, as do I. As Sue says “Live the day well”

Beautifully stated Stevie. I remember that day well, and the connection that everyone shared through Jenn. Although I was not as close to her as others, we were roommates for a semester at Longwood, and I remember the thing I admired most about her was her sense of strength, and courage, and when I had a paper due or was scrambling to get something done, she had a clam sense of knowing that things would always work out. She continues to be an inspiration to me. She also had the most awesome laugh! Thank you Jenn.

What a wonderful way to start my day. This picture is perfect. It captures the essence of friendships bound together celebrating the life of a beautiful soul, on a day that will always live in my memory as special. Thank you so much for the moments.

I will be on that pier tomorrow with a cold beer in one hand and a crabbing line in the other. My daughter loved life, loved all of you, and loved cold beer and steamed blue crabs. I feel honored to have so many of you remember her with such love. Thank you.

I remember back in college, at a party in the poorly maintained house that Tony, JJ and I shared, Jenn was telling me some tale about how she was on a wrestling team in high school, or some such wonderful nonsense. So I told her I was going to do a Fireman's Carry on her. She agreed, but it turns out she had no idea what that was. So long story short, I ended up throwing her over my shoulder and into the nearest wall. Tony was very angry about this, but I didn't much care. I know this isn't the greatest or most appropriate story, but I will always remember her as someone who was not afraid to mix it up and laugh it off afterwards. She was the best.

While Jenn and Tony were living in Fairfax, in the same apartment complex as Mark and I, Carrie and I would take Jenn for "outings" to Starbucks, Target, or sometimes, just to the park.
One night, while we three were at the park, we were talking about what heaven is like. My own personal opinion is that heaven is your perfect happiness, whatever that may be. Jenn thought about that, and said to Carrie and I that she thought her perfect happiness would be all of her family and friends were sitting around the dinner table, having a great time and she was serving us all lasanga.
I still find it remarkable that her perfect happiness was taking care of us.

Stevie, thank you for this. One of the things I will always remember and love about Jenn is just her capacity for growth. When she was in Ghetto, when I first met her, she was totally irresponsible. The way she grew up over the years was just a total change, and she admitted this so many times and would laughingly talk about this now if she could post on here. Many people never really change or grow, even if they think they do. Jenn could and did.

Today I lit a candle and drew a card from an Angel Card in honor of Jenn....
Here is what it said:
SURRENDER AND RELEASE:
Let Go and allow God and the angels to help you. Everyting that you release will either be replaced by something better or will be returned to you healed. When you hold on tightly to a part of your life that's not working, it has no room to heal. Whether you're unhappy with your love life, finances, career, home, or health, this card aks you to let go. If you hang onto these aspects of your life because of fears such as "What if I can't find something or someone better?" then the situation will only worsen. However, if you are willing to open your hands and allow the situation to be freed, one of 2 situations will occur: Either it will be washed away from you and replaced by a better situation, or the situation will heal in a miraculous way. By drawing this card, the angels ask that you try not to control the outcome of your troubling situation, Let Go and let Go help you."
Thank you, angel Jenn,...I am listening...you are loved and celebrated daily....keep it real up there....

There is a song from the musical "Wicked" that always makes me think of Jenn. Here goes...

I've heard it said / That people come into our lives / For a reason / Bringing something we must learn / And we are led / To those who help us most to grow / If we let them / And we help them in return / Well, I don't know if I believe that's true / But I know I'm who I am today / Because I knew you.

It well may be / That we will never meet again / In this lifetime / So let me say before we part / So much of me / Is made of what I learned from you / You'll be with me / Like a hand print on my heart / And now whatever way our story ends / I know you have re-written mine / By being my friend.

I'm so thankful every day for Jenn and for everyone that she brought into my life.
