I was quite saddened to hear the news from my mother about Jill's passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to her entire family. The last time I saw Jill was at our high school reunion in 1998. I first met Jill when we were both about seven years old. We had a neighborhood group of six (Susie, Becky, Jessica, Jenny, Jamie and Jill)that did everything together (plus all our little brothers and sisters when we let them). It was a long time ago, but I remember how much I loved Jill and the years of endless summer days we all spent together. Love Becky (Hodge) Dubbert, Rangely, CO
Ron and family. We feel so sad when those we love are called to live in "The House Above", but they have but gone to prepare the way and we'll meet them again some happy day. For God has told us that nothing can sever a life he created to live on forever- so let God's promise soften your sorrow and give you new strength for a brighter tomorrow. You have our heartfelt sympathy. Ron and Sandie Johnson/Judy/Jennifer and Ron Jr. Sedalia. Mo
Thanks everyone for everything. Becky--in one of my last conversations with Jill, while in the hospital, we reminisced about days at the lot, playing and singing on top of the summer house, the Coatsworths!! she and Susie going for donuts that morning, and other memorable moments during those years. My love back to all of you who remember Jill and will be missing her. She wouldn't want us to grieve very long, but on the other hand--she would completely LOVE knowing how popular and loved she was. Jamie Hamilton Giles
All my thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy to the family of Jill, especially you Marty. I remember the days past when she was like a little sister of my own.
