  39. My Dearest Chili, Russell ,James and Brad, Jason and Families,
    I’ve spent the last three days mourning and so very sad that once again, I’m not able to come and throw my arms around each of you and tell you how very sorry I am that I can’t be there in person. I will remember instead the last time we were all together and Jennifer was laughing and kidding around like we remember her most. She was my first friend when we moved from Seattle and you opened your home. You and Janet were my other parents and Jennifer and Jason my other siblings. I ate with and spent most weekends playing with Jennifer and then babysitting. Our home was your home and most of my childhood memories are intertwined with you and your family. It’s been so hard to not get in the car to give you all hugs. My heart is broken with the situation, but this was probably Jennifer’s way of not letting anyone make to much of a fuss over her. I have admired her courageous fight throughout the last 10 years and and know that GOD has welcomed her home and healed her completely with a “job well done, my faithful servant!” I know Janet was there to take her home. I’m grateful to have had her friendship all these years, her quiet, determined and courageous spirit that never quit. I was so impressed with her ability to fight so hard and never complain. She was a role model for us all. I will be here for you all in the future, you are my other family. I pray you feel my love and know that I am unable to convey my feelings adequately, there really are no words…………. Love you all, Cami, Bob, Michael and Sarah Gorsky

  40. Russell, Chili, Jason and family … I am heartbroken to hear the news of Jennifer’s passing. She was such a great person and my memories of her, Jason, Chili & Janet go WAY back … We had many good times growing up as they were right down the street! So glad I got to see her and Russell a couple of years ago and hang out for awhile one night. She will truly be missed. You are all in my thoughts and prayers and I know that God’s love will give you strength and comfort in the days ahead. Love to all, Kathy

She chose a wonderful way to live, serving her neighbor every day and serving them at times of great need. Psalm 34:18 The Lord is near the broken-hearted and saves the crushed in spirit. God bless you all.
