In memoriam

Jennifer Lynn Spence

1985 - 2009

On Monday evening, our dear niece died suddenly, of cardiac arrest. She was just a couple of weeks shy of her 24th birthday.

At the age of seven, Jennifer became seriously ill and was in intensive care for several weeks. It was the onset of juvenile diabetes. She was insulin dependent throughout her life. Jennifer graduated from the Cornish Institute in Seattle two years ago, and moved to the Bay Area. She developed health complications from her diabetes, including asthma. We know very little about the circumstances of her death. An autopsy was ordered. Her father, my husband's brother, lives in Spokane, and her older sister lives in Seattle. The two of them are traveling together to Oakland to bring Jennifer back to Spokane.

The news has hit our daughter especially hard.
As we wait for more information from the family, we remember a young woman whose artistic gifts shone through serious illness and a broken home.
Thank you for your love and prayers.

Sending that love and those prayers.
Oh, Sharon. I'm so very sorry for your loss. Our oldest son was born in 1985. I can't even imagine how heartbreaking it would be to lose a child that young. Please give my condolences to your family.
Oh, sweetie, I am so sorry for your family's loss. Seems you've been hit especially hard this year; you and your family are in our prayers. Please let us know if there is anything we can do.
This is so sad to hear. I will be praying for you and your family
Oh Sharon I'm so sorry for your family's loss! My oldest niece is the same age and I can't even begin to imagine something so horrible! You are in our thoughts and prayers! (((((hugs))))
