My Beautiful Daughter


Recommended Posts

To All My Friends,

I haven't posted in a few days. On Thursday, my beautiful 23 year old daughter Jennifer passed away suddenly. She had suffered with seizures since she was 7, she had a brain operation at 19 in an attempt to stop them, but unfortunately they continued. She had gone out for her "power walk" around the neighborhood and came home. She told her father she was hot and was going to take a shower. After a while, Brian knocked on the door and asked was she ok. When she didn't respond, he went in and found her in the tub. He tried to recesitate her, but she was already gone. The M.E. said her brain had given out irregular electrical signals which caused her heart to stop immediately. She felt no pain. Her funeral mass is Tuesday at 10:15. Please pray for Jennifer, she was truly a wonderful person, and she was also a survivor.

I am so very very sorry for your loss. I wish I were there to hug you and help.

Rick's little sister passed away similarly at the age of 20. It was the hardest thing and it too was sudden and a huge shock.

I've never seen as much pain as I witnessed with Rick's mom. A mother losing a child must be so devestating and my heart is hurting for you right now.

Please accept our condolences and know that we are all here for you, thinking about you and your family.

I have no words that can ever sooth you at this moment. The loss of a child is something I could only imagine, and that would not even be close.

Just rememebr that you are in everyones thoughts at this time. Please accept my sincere sympathies for this loss.

Dear Joanie,

Please accept my deepest sympathy. I can not image how devastating the lose of a child would be.

It really hit home with me. My beautiful daughter had petty mal seizures as a teenager and then at 22 had a grand mal. Thank God, medication has kept her seizure free for over 15 months. But you never know.

Please know that I am thinking and praying for your whole family.
