R.I.P. Jen

Dear all,

Just got word as we were leaving that Jen passed away about 30 mins ago now. Thank you all for your love and support. Will get back to you in the coming days.

Love,

    We are praying for strength for you and mostly for Jack.

  3. David, I am so, so sorry for you and the boys. Jen made such an incredible impact on all of our lives; I can only imagine how she touched those truly closest to her. You'll be in my prayers and thoughts in the coming days. Thank you for taking the time to let all of us know in the midst of what I am sure is a heartbreaking time. Love to all of you.

  9. Your tender care of "our" sweet Jenni has comforted those of us who could only touch her from afar, and I have come to love you for it. Thank you. Like I told Jenni, I will keep Jack, Jamie, and now you, in my prayers always. May God comfort as you work through your grief.

  11. Hi David,

    Derek here, in Gloucestershire, England.

    SO sorry to read this!

    As I've said earlier, I've felt privileged to have had a window onto Jenni's life - and of course your own - through this site.

    The enormous blessing, of course, is that Jenni's awful suffering is now at an end. And at the same time, this is an end to one phase of your lives and the start of another.

    Thinking of you all.

    Very best wishes,
    Derek

  22. I'm so, so sorry. I've been thinking of all of you all day, and earlier these words came to mind, written by Mark Twain and put on the tombstone of his daughter, Suzy, who died at 20:

    Warm summer sun, shine kindly here. Warm southern wind, blow softly here. Green sod above, lie light, lie light. Good night, dear Heart, Good night, good night.


    Jenni was one amazing woman; we can all hope to be so loved.

  24. My heart is broken that Jenni had to suffer so much pain for so very long. But, I am thankful that she will never feel pain again. She was a light in all of our lives, and now she is a bright light in heaven.

    David, you have made us all so proud. I know you will keep Jen's love for her boys alive. She worked hard to be a wonderful mother.

    I am holding you all so very close in my heart and in my prayers. I hope that our love for all of you will bring you some comfort. You should feel it reaching out to you across our universe.

  25. Dear David, Jamie & Jack

    No words can really make a difference to your loss, but take comfort that the pain and suffering are over for brave Jen, and now you all can start the healing process. Just go with it, and accept all the love and support that you'll no doubt be offered.

    Once again if you ever feel like talking to someone who has been there - just visit my blog - my contact details are on my website.

    Sending you strength and healing vibes.

    Kia Kaha & lots of love,

  30. Dear David, Jack, and Jamie,
    So sorry to read this today. I've been reading Jen's blog for a couple of years now and found myself thinking about her all day today. I'm glad that she is at peace now, but so saddened that I won't be reading her words here anymore. Will be thinking of the three of you in the days, weeks, and months to come.

  31. Thinking of you all, even through the medium of a blog Jen touched so many lives--I can't even imagine how deeply she touched those in "real" life. So glad her suffering and pain is over. Thank you Jen, you changed the way I look at the world.

  41. december always feels like such a holy month to me.
    so it seems fitting that jenni left this place during this month, during this holiday, during this time.
    what a journey of truth.
    thank you doesn't seem to cut it.

  48. Sweet Jen-girl has found her everlasting peace and comfort. We will miss her presence, her sense of humor in the midst of her struggles, and her candor. (And we'll miss her blog for crying out loud!!!)

    Much love, tears, prayers and hope going out to you David, Jamie, Jack-boy and the rest of her precious family. There may have been issues in the past, but you were there for her in the end. That's what family is all about--being there when it's good and bad.

    Hope you will all continue to come together even after this time has come to pass. Jamie and Jack will need a strong family now more than ever.

    And praying you will cast your cares over to The One who matters most in this life and the life hereafter...Jesus Christ. (David, you knew that was coming! ;) Paul said in Phillipians 1:21, "For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain." You cannot go wrong serving and loving the Lord Jesus. You win in life and death.

    Loving y'all from across the world tonight. Hope you continue to keep in touch with us, David. YOu've been "The Rock".

    Hugs and Smootches to everyone.

  51. David....So sad for your next step in the journey yet so happy that Jack and you are together. There will be extremely long, sad, and hopeless feeling days but the sun will come out. Jen is out of her pain and free from her fears. Blessing from God to all of you.

  52. I am comforted, as, no doubt you are, that Jenni is peaceful and painfree, finally. May God's love and the love of those around you carry you during this time.

  53. Dear David, Jack and Jaime,

    I am so very, very sorry for your loss. Jen's story - and the story of all of you - has touched so many lives. She was a fighter and a good soul. I'm relieved she's finally at peace, but heartbroken for her boys, for you, her family, her friends and everyone around her. Her life was short, but it was filled with love.

    With warmest thoughts during such a difficult time,
    Amanda

    David, Jack and Jamie, I'm so sad for you all today. Thank you for letting us share Jenni with you. You have all been so courageous and generous and have loved her so well, as she loved you all so deeply too.
    Keep taking care of each other as you have been and allow yourselves time to grieve.

  58. Each day lately I have dreaded opening this blog because I didn't want to read what I read today.

    Jenni was such a "light" that I just couldn't imagine the world without her. And I still can't.

    Words fail me tonight. But words can't help.

    But prayers can. I know that for sure. So I will be praying for you and Jack and Jamie and all of Jenni's family and friends. I sure will miss her.

    I hope you contineu blogging.

    Thank you David.

    Hugs!

  60. Love and grief. We are all connected. It's raining here and I'm crying. Jenni: May you know freedom and love and peace beyond measure. David, Jack, and Jamie: May you know the same while you celebrate Jenni's life and mourn her passing.

  62. I am so very sorry for your loss and Jack and Jamie's loss and the pain that comes with it.

    I am grateful Jenni is out of pain. I am crying a river as I have been so inspired by her for such a long time now. And as a mother, my heart is just broken thinking about her boys.

    May you find strength and love in each other.

    Thank you for updating us, and I would love to keep up with how you and Jack and Jamie are doing.

  63. Oh dear, it's the day we hoped would elude us and that Jenni would pull another miracle yet again. Despite that, I'm glad she's out of pain now and busy watching over her loved ones like nobody's business. She will be the angel of all angels, I have no doubt about that!
    Even still, with tears running down my face, I had to go outside on this freezing evening in the States and look to the stars to say a prayer for Jenni. Rest in peace, dear friend and may your boys always know just how deeply they were loved by you, their mother.
    David, thank you for being a wonderful friend and father... that is the best gift anyone can give and I'm sure Jenni loved you for it.

    May peace and love guide you these difficult days and please know that you, Jack and Jamie are surrounded and supported throughout the world (literally!) with love.

    Best,

  70. I've been reading this blog for over a year now... turned to it from an Ali Edwards post one time. I've never commented before but have read every post. I have always been struck by Jen's honesty about what she was going through, the ups and downs, the struggles, the emotional turmoil. We knew this was coming yet it's still so hard to believe that it's actually happened. Please take care of Jack, hold and love him within your arms and be there for him. I lost my mother to cancer when I was 27 and I can't imagine what little Jack will go through at his age. So sorry for the loss of such a bright, warm light in your lives. She will be so missed. Life is so unfair sometimes.

  73. Dear David, dear Jack and dear Jamie, you can be so proud! you will grow up wonderful men, with such love and dignity that Jenny gave you, that you gave Jenny. All my remote love to you, be strong, and then: be happy, you will be again, because you really deserve it. As for Jenny, she's made us all grow so much, she will float gently and be in every beautiful day we'll have for a long time, no existence could have been richer and more generous!

  74. I am so very sorry for your loss. Jenni will always be with you all, and we here from her blog will NEVER forget her and the lessons she taught us. While she was way too young to die, I am very glad that she is no longer in pain and suffers no more.
    Please keep hugging Jack and Jamie from all of us and may it bring some comfort to know what an impact Jen had on us all.

    Jenni left several very kind comments on my blog. Due to my vision I read Jenni's story due to her kindness and being another Mom with cancer. Her story touches so many and will continue to do so...like throwing a pebble in a pond . The ripples keep moving.
    Thank you David and pray for you and her family.
