  1. Oh blueberries Miss Jen! I love you so much!!!! Thank you for sharing your story. You are such an inspiration to so many. I didn’t know all of this, so it makes me love and admire you more to read it. I think of you every time I go to the Pointe or Lure’s or walk by your home. I think of you picking things up off the floor while Tom was still with us (😉). Miss you my dear friend!

  2. Jennifer,
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful story. I am so happy to call you my my sister in Jesus!! I remember how kind you were to me at Clarion. While I am sad to learn of your trials I rejoice that you have found peace and filled the emptiness. I can’t imagine a life without Jesus! I hope all the ZETAs do a reunion. Love you! Love your heart! Love your faith!!! Romans 8:28

    1. Penny, I remember your joyful smile from college! I think your journey through faith and to Jesus started long before mine did! I always admired that about you in college. You were strong in your conviction then as you still are! I’m glad to call you my sister in Jesus as well. God bless you Penny I’m glad you reached out ❤️

    I worked with Tom for many years. One of the very best things I liked about Tom was his true love for you and his lovely daughter. This is a beautiful story of hope and faith. Jen, You have overcome so much grief and anguish but continue to inspire others. I think about you daily and continue to talk about Tom’s legacy.
    Thank you for sharing your personal story. Lots of love, Carl

  4. Thank you Julie and Jen for sharing this beautiful testimony! Jen, your faith and trust in God are such an encouragement for all of us who also deal with chronic illness. It isn’t easy to feel so weak! But I love the way that you have lifted up your fears to Jesus, and He has met you right there. You have brought a blessing to me tonight! May He bless you for sharing.

  5. Jennifer was such a source of strength and inspiration when my husband had his heart transplant and a difficult recovery. Despite having recently losing her own husband, she greeted me with words of hope and encouragement. I will always cherish the renewal of our sisterhood through these extremely tough times. You continue to inspire me throughout your journey. ❤️
