Many prayers and much love for the family. May Jenelle'd beautiful soul and spirit be with you always.
A bright light was put out too soon! God took her for the reasons he only knows. I can say that I am happy to know her and have seen what she put forth into her family and career. My heart will be selfish and wish this had not happened but, I know that she is with the Lord and her other family members celebrating beyond what our minds can comprehend. Praying for all family and close friends! May God give you the peace and strength that is beyond comprehension. My work buddy for 3 jobs in my life time. Thank You for the joy I was given and the fun I will not forget during one Black Friday shopping trip! Love Always! Shelley
Jenelle's spirit shown brightly and touched everyone she met. My thoughts are with her family.
