I miss her singing and laughter most of all. She had such a beautiful voice. She sang from the heart with love. I miss the way she used her gifts to lift others including myself.

Tell us about your loved one.

My daughter Jennifer was very sweet, kind, loving, intelligent beyond her years. She was very creative. She had a beautiful voice, composed songs and wrote poetry. She taught herself to play guitar and also played the violin. She was often called a "Flower Child". She always had her guitar and loved to sing and lift people's spirit. She had an impish uncensored zest for life and was so funny and constantly made people laugh. She hated to see anybody sad or suffer even in the midst of her own pain and suffering.

Tell us about Jennifer's struggle with addiction

Jennifer was a heroin addict. She hated her addiction and what it did to her, her family and her friends. She so desperately wanted to stop. She finally got sober in the summer of 2015. She worked her program, carried the message and helped so many people. She was happier and healthier than she had ever been in her entire adult life. But it was just too much for her. Unfortunately she relapsed and lost her battle on November 1, 2015.

What made Jennifer smile?

It didn't take much to make her smile. She was very creative and always found ways to lift people's spirits with her incredible wit and sense of humor. She was so funny.

What do you miss most about Jennifer?

I miss her singing and laughter most of all. She had such a beautiful voice. She sang from the heart with love. I miss the way she used her gifts to lift others including myself.
