Jenny and I were playground pals all through elementary school. Not only did she teach me to climb the monkey bars and hang by my feet....she saved me from cracking my head open more than once! I will always remember her smile, laugh, and amazing outlook on life....and that amazing Halloween party and hayride on her parents farm. I'm so glad we reconnected again in laters years...even if it was just on Facebook. RIP my sweet friend.

I have fond childhood memories of Jennifer from Girl Scout, Troop 100 out of Perry Hill Elementary. She was a great friend on the playground too and I had enjoyed reconnecting with her through facebook. My thoughts and prayers go out to her friends and family.
