I remember our young years together playing on the farm and hiding in the barn! Great cousin times ... cutting all the "get free" items from magazines and waiting for them to arrive by driving the car down to the mailbox . Also taking the car and mowing down some ears of corn which Uncle Harold was not happy about! I remember her sweet visits and her love for cats and helpfulness to all... she had a wonderful kind helping spirit! God blessed us all with Memories to last a lifetime!

Jennifer was such a kind and gentle person, a blessing to those around her. To all my cousins hold tight to memories for comfort, lean on your faith, family and friends for strength, and always remember how much each of you are cared about. I have so many fond memories visiting Uncle Harold and Aunt Millicent, and my cousins there at the farm. From the go-cart rides, to the adventures in the barn....so many years ago. Love and blessings dear family.
