Mark and Courtney, I was so saddened to read the obituary of your mom today. We worked together for many years at Jiffy packaging. She was a hard worker and a dedicated employee. I often thought of all those days at Jiffy. My prayers are with you at this very difficult time.

May the Lord bless you and give you comfort in this time of our sorrow. Mark is a true friend and a fine example of his mother's hard work and sacrifice for her children. Remember the good times she created for you and know she is in the care of Jesus Christ as we speak. With Love, Andrew Jennings.
