Cynthia, your Mum was such a wonderful, warm, fun, friendly person and always made me feel like part of your family.

    My condolences to Jenny’s family at this difficult time. Jenny was a Sorority sister and I always admired her for her wonderful personality. She will be sorely missed by all who loved her. She is in a better place now with no pain or suffering. Peace be with you Jenny.
