    I am so sorry to hear of Jenny’s passing. I’ve always loved Jenny. She was so kind. When I think of my childhood, I think of her. I have so many memories of me and her playing, dressing up, spending the night, and almost all the movies I saw in the 90s were with Jenny and the Pickell family. Please know I am here, and I’m praying for healing during this time. I’ll never forget Jenny. I love you all.

      Dear Fred and Teresa I just saw the obituary in the paper and wanted you to know how heartbroken that Janey and I were to hear of Jenny’s passing. I know that we have lost touch through the years but I think often off our time in New Orleans after graduation from banking school. You will both be in our prayers as you face what will certainly be difficult days ahead. If there is anything that we can do please do not hesitate to reach out. I pray that God will comfort your broke hearts. Much love, Doug and Janey

    I am so so sorry to hear of your daughter’s death. I did not know her but my son Matthew (’08) and daughter in law Caroline (’07) did. I imagine my Mandy, who graduated in 2006 and died that same year did as well. I’ve seen many tributes to what a sweet and caring soul your daughter had. I realize we do not know each other, but I am here and willing to help in any way I can. Please now that our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    I just saw this in the paper while looking for the crossword puzzle and started reading about her. I didn’t know Jenny but this struck me so much about how kind and wonderful she must have been for her family to have asked for spreading kind deeds in lieu of flowers. What a very beautiful soul she must have been. I’m older and know that the more wonderful a person was, the more you miss them when they are gone. I hope your memories of her bring you peace.
