I am so sorry for your loss of Jennifer. I remember Jennifer as a cashier at Super Value. She was such a pleasant person. Always happy. I remember her the most of wanting to become a Mother. And then she did; become a Mom. She was over joyed with happiness. May God Bless Jennifer's family & friends. Cheryl Parsons

Doug: I was very sad to hear of your loss, as were all of the workers at Lagrange DFR. You worked so hard to bring Jennifer back to your home. I know you loved her very much! You were a good husband! May you find comfort in the good memories you had with her.
