Dear Linda and Ed,

We were so very sorry to hear about Jennifer’s passing. I saw in my parish’s bulletin here in Bridgeport that someone was having a Mass said for her, and I just knew that it was her. Although I haven’t seen her for years, I still remember the many happy times at Blessed Trinity, and I remember her as an angel that touched my life and the lives of so many others. God bless her and God bless her family and friends. Please let us know if you need anything at all.

Eddie, Linda and family,

“Parents of A Saint”

A little bit of Heaven

Came to both of you one day,

Then soon this little breath of God,

Was suddenly snatched away;

The joy you built within your hearts

Has now turned into grief,

You feel that nothing found in life

Could ever bring relief;

Now, parents, if you’ll meditate

You’ll find it otherwise,

The grief you have is really

But a Blessing in disguise;

The Waters of Eternal Life

Have Freed your babe of taint

T’was meant by God that you

Should be the Parents of a Saint.

Jennifer was such a loving person that always had a smile on her face. It was truly a blessing to have known her and loved her. She touched the hearts of many and will never be forgotten. It is a comfort to know that she is in Heaven with our Lord and has the promise of no more pain and suffering. We miss you and we love you.

I had the pleasure of knowing Jennifer through my son Tim. Jennifer was a wonderful, sweet,caring person, who was a very good friend to my son. I remember when Jennifer and Tim went to homecoming together. My son had such a wonderful time with her, he thought the world of Jennifer, as so did many people. Though moving away from the neighborhood, they did not see each other as often, Jennifer was always in our thoughts and prayers, through the struggle she faced. Our thoughts and prayers are with you now. Unfortunately due to a loss in our family we were not able to say our goodbyes. So we are glad that we had this opportunity now. love you Jennifer!!!

I had the pleasure of meeting Jennifer through a really great guy, Trey. Jennifer attended our church with Trey and we first met her at the Italian Festival. Trey was always so proud of her. Jennifer was an incredibly strong and special young woman. In the few times that had the pleasure to meet her, she was placed in my prayers daily and in my heart. She was healed. But not how we would have wished. Without suffering, there would be no compassion. She has instilled compassion in all of us at Lincoln Avenue United Methodist Church. We are praying for you all.

Jen taught me how to look at the world and smile. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of her. I only wish I could have known her longer. If there is anything I can do, please let me know. You are in my thoughts and prayers always.

Jennifer was so sweet and sincere. She always put herself before others. The last time that I had talked to Jenn was right before I left for Basic Training for the Army. I was in training for 6 months and when I came home it was the day after Jen had passed away. She was always in my thoughts and prayers and I know that right now she is prolly right beside me as I’m writing this Jen I will never forget u and the times that we shared through out High School I lve ya girl

Jennifer, your smile and giving nature will never be forgotten. No one will understand why such a beautiful person could be taken from us so early, but we are all blessed with loving and knowing you these few short years. We will always carry a piece of you with us everyday.

Now, be at peace Jennifer. And always know that you are sadly missed and forever loved by your family and friends.

Mr. and Mrs. Edwards, I was very sorry to hear about Jennifer’s untimely death. Although I hadn’t seen her in almost a year, we still kept in touch, and she told me about her sickness. I was unaware of the severity of her situation, and was very surprised to hear of her passing. I tried calling the old phone number I had for her to speak to you, but it was no longer in service. If you need anything at all, please feel free to get in touch with me. Jen was a wonderful person, and she will be missed very much.

there came to life one day a pure white rose that stood tall among a field of weeds the white rose looked around and knew it had work to do so the white rose went about turning all the weeds into beauiful flowers and before long the white rose was surrounded by a field of the most beautiful flowers god looked down and saw that the white rose had created so much beauty by turning all the weeds into flowers that he plucked the white rose from the field of flowers and took the white rose to walk with him thru heaven and help him pick the most perfect place for the white rose to stand tall and wait for all the beatiful flowers to join the white rose one by one ……… Linda & Ed take comfort in knowing that Jennifer is just helping god make a place for us close to her so that one day we can all be together again one day we will hold her in our arms again but till then we will hold her in our hearts

When the warmth of the sun touches my face,

I see your smile and feel your embrace.

I hear the whisper of love in the wind

And I know that you are close to me again

The rain speaks of tears and the thunder of pain,

But soon the sun comes the earth to reclaim.

As the days come and go and the world moves on,

I know you’re still here, you’ll never be gone.

On the night the Angel came and took your hand,

We cried as you left for an unknown land.

But Heaven rejoiced as you came into sight,

For your soul was a diamond, shining so bright!

Jennifer was a giving and unselfish person in a generally selfish society. She truly was one of God’s angels on Earth. We all loved her very much. She will be sadly missed
