When we moved to Morgan Creek three years ago, Jennie was one of the first neighbors that we met, and she was pure sunshine. I was always delighted to see her on the corner with her doggie, Coco, where we had many happy talks about how wonderful life was. She is loved and will be missed by so many of her neighbors. Our sympathies to her lovely family.

Don, we’re so sorry to hear about Jennie. She was the first person from Morgan Creek that I met. She heard me mention at QD to the clerk that we had just moved in and quite a welcoming conversation ensued. She was always a sweetheart and will be missed.
Thoughts and prayers will be be with you and the family.

I was just informed of your dear wife’s passing. I send my condolences for your great loss. Your helpmate has gone on ahead to our eternal home. I add prayers to you and for the repose of Jennie’s soul.

I will always remember her pleasant smile and sweet disposition and she was always a joy to have in the choir.

Please, forgive my clumsy words.
