Dear Family and Friends,

I remember the day when I set up this blog for Jen.  It was an amazing outlet for Jen to share her journey with us because Jen had such a wonderful way of words.  She had the ability to be vulnerable and truthful like nobody else I know.  One day Zachary will read through this blog and realize the amazing Mother he had and how brave and courageous she was until her last breath.  There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about Jen and her journey. I get angry she had to go through all of this and lose her beautiful life. I then remember that Jen had a purpose in this world and it was to teach all of us how to live each day a bit better with less complaining, more laughter, and always cherish every MOMENT!  

I miss and love you Jen,  Heather (LITB)

  1. I missed a post. Had no idea this had happened. Condolences to you and Zach and the rest of the family. May sweet memories never fade from your minds and hearts as you navigate this horrible future without her.

  2. My brother was diagnosed in February 2012, and I immediately found Jen's blog. I was amazed by her courage and truthfulness. My brother went through many of the same procedures. He passed away 6 months later, leaving behind his wife and 4 boys. I wish you the strength to grieve and the courage to remember the good times and to cherish your life with your son. I know it's not easy, but there is an angel watching over you! <3 Lisa in California
