Until we meet again.

Jenn, you have been an inspiration to me. Your beautiful smile, your happy laugh! You have accepted AJ and I with open arms. I will miss you greatly! You now are home free, in our Lords peaceful loving arms, and I look forward to seeing you again. This is not a farewell, this is a "Ill see you later"! Love, Josh and AJ Amaro!

I am so sorry for your loss. I didn't know Jenn personally however, She, her family and her blog have been such an inspiration to me.

the bond of love will be unbroken for all eternity."

You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Jenn was such a special woman. I feel so blessed and honored to have known her. I know she has touched many others in the same way as she did me. Let us all find ways to be a little more like Jenn, and in our own small ways keep her legacy alive.

Oh I am so so very sorry for your loss. I've been reading Jenn's blog for just a short time and have been so inspired by her strength and beauty. I have no words. I will pray for your dear family.

Words cannot express how much I love Jenn.....She was a beautiful and magificent woman who truly endured to the end. I will cherish her for forever. I cannot begin to express how special it was to be with Jenn today at the time of her passing....she is truly a beloved daughter of our Father in Heaven. She is a beautiful "flower" growing in our Savior's garden now. May we all feel of her love and spirit now that she is no longer in pain. May the Lord bless and keep you Bryan, Joe and Sam. I love you Jenn...more then pen can write or tongue can tell....

So sorry for your loss.

Our Life In Sunny SoCal said...

Every few days I log on to the Save the Ta Tas Update to see what is happening in your lives. After hearing the news this morning about Jenn's passing, I wondered what if anything I would find on the blog tonight, but knew that it would be a place to share thoughts and find comfort with others. Jenn's positive yet realistic personality always shone through in her posts as she coped with the challenges of living with cancer. Her faith-filled and hopeful entries inspired friends and strangers alike as this woman of grace lifted us to higher pathways. Through her we realized that life is not always fair, but that with an eternal perspective it will be OK in the end.

I went to the beach today where our families had such wonderful experiences last month. I pondered on Jenn's loving, patient demeanor which was evident even as she struggled. The memories she was making for her boys were so important and she wanted them to be of the highest quality. Watching her as she shared Sam's discovery of a starfish in the tide pools or mediating the digging of holes in the sand showed nurturing at it's best. Your boys know love through her consistency.

Thank you Flower for your example, your friendship and your open attitude, we have all been edified as you shared this challenging journey with us.

Bryan, Joe & Sam our prayers are with you.

Brian, Joe, Sam, Marsha and Steve, Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to give Jenn a big kiss and say goodbye. I will always remember that moment. I am so glad that I could be a part of her life as a friend and to serve with her. I believe Heavenly Father placed her in my life as well as many others to learn from her positive example. I have learned from her that being positive can really effect our lives for the good. My heart is full of love for you. Thanks so much for your sacrifice. Connie B.

I've stumbled upon this blog several times and each time I do I see what a great person Jenn was and is (even though I've never met her). Her story makes me want to live my life better and cherish each sweet moment of my life as a mother, wife, daughter, sister and child of God. Thank you for your sweet example! May the Lord bless all of your family!

Shelly said...

Jenn was such a great person! I have only memories of her with a big smile on her face! It was a blessing to know her. I will keep you guys in my prayers.

Sara Dumas said...

Bryan, Joe, and Sam I'm so sorry for your loss! I wish I could've known Jenn better. She is such an inspiration to me. It's just so hard to see her slip away from us, but as Josh said "it's just a see you later!" I'm going to miss her so much, but I know she is out of pain now.

Kim said...

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. We have been inspired by Jenn's amazing attitude and spirit. We pray that the Lord will be with you.

Tara Hoppie said...

Know that there are many who love Jen and who have loved hearing about you through her. Much love to you all, and thanks for sharing her with us.

Jenn was truely an angel sent to earth to teach us through her selfless example. She is an example of christlike love, that knew her calling here on earth. We were so blessed to have had a brief chance to get to spend time with her and get to know her better. We are better because of her example. Are thoughts are with her sweet family at this difficult time. ~The Leavitts

It's the Utah County Fair today....we would have gone together. It was our traditon....and now I go alone with my kids and ache for your companionship. I miss you my dear friend....I see you in so many things. Dave opened the can of grape juice in the fridge that you had put into my purse at the hospital during chemo....he drank it and then looked over at me. He didn't have a clue why my face was all squished up. I told him it was okay....that I didn't know what to do with it anyway....but I felt a part of me die with you all over again. So silly and yet so profound for me. The last 3 months have felt like a lifetime...not a day goes by that I don't look at your blog...just to see you clear blue eyes staring back at me while I talk to you.

Christi said...

Jenn, I miss you! I hope you are smiling down from heaven on us all. I hope your boys are finding peace. This blog and pictures of you mean so much to me!

Christi said...

Jenn- its kooky Christmas postcard time of year. Thinking of you!

Angela Strong said...

Time does start to heal all wounds....but the scars remain. Scars of happiness and joy....of loss and pain. I have struggled so with the loss of you, my dear friend, and I feel your loving spirit embracing me and urging me forward.

Hugs and kisses....the new year awaits....

Angela Strong said...

I have thought of you so much today....the eve of your birthday....and how we celebrated it at my house last year. What a wonderful celebration it was...and how I wish I were throwing another birthday party this year for you. I miss you so much Jenn....there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about you. I am registering today for the Race for the Cure in your name. Every step will bring me to tears and every survivor I watch and women in the middle of this great battle will touch me. I walk for you....and I know you will walk beside me....

Angela Strong said...

One year ago today....I sat beside you and held your hand as you slipped away peacefully. I love you my sweet and dear friend. This day brings about so many emotions and memories. A whole year has gone by without you here physically. I talk to you everyday...and I know you are listening to me. You are my angel now...and I will walk in honor of you this Saturday in the Race for a Cure. You will be beside me every step of the way. I love you Jenn....and I miss you terribly.

Christi said...

It's been a year since you've been gone, but I know that your spirit is alive and kicking. I miss you and pray that the boys are doing well. Words can't express the earthly loss of a dear friend. Until we meet again!

Christi said...

Over 2 yrs now that you left for a better place. Thinking of you and your boys. Reunion day will be so sweet.
