Dear Diana, Toni and Gina,

Just saw this and so sorry to read Great Aunt Jenny's laugh and smile have passed on. I always loved her stye. I have fond memories of her and Uncle Amos and all of you. I can hear her saying my name and of course your Dad tugging on my ear. Sincere condolences sent to you from afar. Sorry I can't be there to show my respect.

Jenny will always have a special spot in our hearts.  We, too, think of the blue stripped golf cart as  "Jenny's" and say there she goes.  She truly loved and lived life.  Heartfelt condolences to the family.

My condolences go out to Jenny's family and friends.  Jenny will surly be missed by all.  The memory of Jenny will live long in the hearts of all.  She will sadly be missed and thought of often.

What a wonderful picture of Jenny! Just as we remember her! Just yesterday we saw her golf cart and I mentioned that I will always think of it as Jenny's golf cart. Jenny will always be remembered with love and a smile. We had a wonderful time here in Ancient Oaks with Jenny and she still is missed, but in a much better place.
