jcawork sister Posted September 10, 2006 Share Posted September 10, 2006 Well where do I begin. Jen was a wonderful person and she also told it like it was and never sugar coated anything. I think all of our family is the same way. Jen and my brothers were all born in Philly but I was born in good old DC. She use to love to upset me about that. Now I think its funny the walk is in DC. Well her two boys Bobby the oldest is not doing great but now I think he is getting back on track. He took time off from work but just started back. Jesse her youngest is doing well lets say he thinks he is ok and is working but I know the pain in there heart is more then they can stand. Before Jenny passsed away she took care of everything to the where she would rest. It's kind of funny because I really was the only one she spent time with in the end well at lease knew how she really felt. So when she ask me to take her to the cemetery to pick a place and the guy was like well there this really nice place on top of the hill way far away( I HATE TO WALK) I told her she better be near the curb if she wanted to see me alot. It was a joke really. So we went home and I asked her where she picked she said on top of the hill just so I could walk there well then I said I will see you on your bday and mothers day,xmas that made her laugh so hard I think her back hurt. Well she passed away about 2 months later and I was given the key to a box not to open till she passed away. It had all her information in it and a note to tell me she was CURB side. And she is I can just drive up and sit in my car if I wanted. She was the best sister ever. The best mother as well she never keeped things from the kids except that she was terminal because she wanted to see them happy till she died. But as a mom she showed them never let anyone push you around fight for what is yours. Be kind to women. Love your family no matter how crazy they are. We are a CRAZY IRISH family but she was are rock now we will need to come together to make us whole again. She told me that the best gift she can leave me is her boys because when I need to see her look at them and she will be right there.She was right. That was the thing with Jen she really was right about everything she knew more things they anyone I know. She said to me Debbie I have taught you everything you know but not everything I know. I said to her what does that mean she said in time I would figure that out. I am now starting to do that. I vist her aot and so do alot of people and when I see her grave I always see wine bottles her favorite the people at the grave site must think she was a drunk. Then I think what would Jen say. She would say fu__ them for all the money I spent here they should drop off wine to me. Sorry this note is so long but I miss her and I really can't talk to many people. Jen had eyes that were like the ocean and a sailor mouth when she had to. She would lay her life down for her family so I say she was a great women that lived a full life in a short time. Myself I have not done half of what she ever did and I guess she would say jump in and live the good life you only get one. I loved to hear from you guys and would love to keep in touch. If anyone wants to talk please feel free to send me a note. Jen knew alot about Lung Cancer and she did live longer then most with SCLC her docs said she was a true fighter and a pain in the *ss well she was going to run the show she always told me. The docs are here for me but I will decide how I am going to fight this diease and she did a great job fighting!!!!!!!!!!! Jen I love you and miss so more then I can ever say. My heart is broken now but I hope in time it will heal but you my love will never be forgotten and you wull always be my big sister who I looked up to everyday.
