    I was saddened to read of the loss of your loved one. I personally
    experienced the grief of losing my loved ones. However, there is
    comfort to know the Holy Scriptures (Rev 21:4) gives the
    assurance that God will end death, pain and sorrow.
    I hope this brief message brings comfort to you and your family.

    Those we know and love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear. It was a pleasure knowing you. I pray that JAH grants peace to your soul… RIP.

    Mommy, Ann Marie.

    My sincere condolences to the Adams family. May your memories of Jennifer bring you comfort in the days and weeks ahead and have faith in God’s promise of seeing your loved one again by means of a resurrection. Imagine planning together for an everlasting future, never again to say good-bye! (John 5:28, 29)

    I still don’t want to accept this. You were the very first friend I ever had outside of family. From having my mom make our dresses back in elementary school, cheer camp, to taking that final walk on graduation day, you were always there!! Tho we went our own ways after school we still remained close. I am going to miss you so much! Prayers for Ce-ce and Heidi!!

  11. Tina Abbott-Maxwell, March 17, 2017

    Jen, I don’t know where to begin….The tears haven’t stopped flowing …I’m glad that we re-connected many years ago and became more than cousins, we became like best friends. We spent a lot of good times together and you helped me out a lot with Kayla and she loves you very much and I am proud to say that I love you very much!!! Times were tough for you at times, but your love and big heart helped you through those times. We shared many tears, laughs and bitch sessions and I will miss them dearly. I wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else last week and on Monday when I saw you take your last breath with me holding your hand and knowing that you were now in no pain from that effing sickness called Cancer. I love you and will miss you sooooo much!! RIP Cousin Jen.

    People will come into your life for many different reasons. She made me look at things from many different views and taught me a few lessons along the way. Even though she drove me crazy at times, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do to see that smile one more time. I’m going to miss you deeply Jen.

  15. Cindy Toms, March 22, 2017
