  1. Jen and family,
    Your mom was one of the bravest person I have known. She showed such courage to the end. Your mom and I have been friends for 46 yrs. She fought long and hard and refused to give into this terrible disease. We shared so much , good times and bad times, but always managed to put our differences aside because true friendship doesn’t come along everyday. I will miss the things we shared and will cherish the memories that I’ve made with your mom., but most of all I will miss you my friend. She was so proud of you Jen. I’m so sorry for your loss.
