Dear Bill

I was so shocked and suddened to hear that Jill passed away after a long battle with cancer. I just could not imagine how hard the time has been for you and your children. Jill was a wonderful person and she helped me a lot at production control when I began my career at W-N. I am sure that she will be greatly missed by all W-N employee who worked together. Please accept my sincere condolences from the bottom of my heart.

Dear Bill,

Cheryl and I are sorry that we were not in Wheeling to personally extend our sympathy and support to you and your family, and to attend Jill’s services. Cheryl very much appreciated all that Jill did for RCIA when Cheryl went through the program in 2001.

I have my own fond memories of Jill, going back to our days when she lived across the alley from me on Echo Terrace. She was only about seven years old when I moved into the neighborhood. Jill would tease me from the safety of her fenced backyard as I climbed the hill on my way home from high school. Her most often used taunt was as sing-song of “You like Cindy Dietz, you like Cindy Dietz….” She was such a cute little girl, with a spunk even then, which she kept throughout her life.

We have been keeping all of you in our prayers. Please pass our sympathy on to Pat, Mark, and Jody.

Sincerely,

George & Cheryl

Just a note to Jill’s family and many friends. My deepest sympathies. I was fortunate enough to share some fond memories with Jill when we were younger. She was there for me when my best friend died when we were 19. I will never forget her and I know she is appropriately among the angels. Special condolences to her Mother and brother Mark. Sincerely, J. Front.

Pat, Jody and Mark:

I’ve been sitting in front of this computer trying to find the right words to describe the fact that I wish you never had to know this kind of sorrow. I know there are no words that could make you feel less sad but, I do believe Jill touched many lives throughout her life – and those of us who were fortunate enough to have shared in even a little time – would agree we are much better people for having known her.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

To all of Jill’s family,

There are not any words that can express the loss I know you must feel. They say time heals. How much time is different for everyone.

You know that it is happening when

you can think of Jill with a smile

on your face instead of tears in your eyes. May it help to know that

others are thinking of you in your sorrow. My thoughts and prayers are

with you at this difficult time.

God speed,

Nancy Padden

To Pat, Jody and Mark,

You will never know the emotion that I felt when I saw Jill’s picture and obituary in the paper. I am so very sorry from the bottom of my heart. I think of all of you so often. I can’t imagine the pain of losing a child or sibling. You are in my heart and prayers. I wish there was something more I could do. I wish I could be there to give each of you a big hug, but I just had laser surgery on my eye and am not able to drive at this time. Just know that now she will be with Fritz. You all have a special place in my herrt. May God see you through this.

Love, Pat
