  1. I remember so clearly how I felt walking in there….have that same feeling again. You are such a beautiful Mommy Libby!

  2. i wish i could see the video. nothing is showing up. i read your posts all the time. you have helped me immensely dealing with the loss of my husband almost a year ago. you’ve said things that i have felt, but not spoken. you’ve been reading my heart and for that i’m thankful, but so sorry you and your beautiful family have to walk this journey.

  3. Thank you for sharing Libby and Tony. This was a beautiful tribute to our Glitter Girl. We miss her, but she is in our hearts and will never be forgotten. We are always here for you and your family. Love you guys.

  4. It really was such a beautiful day, however horrible the reason we were all there. Not a speck of glitter was out of place.
    This is still so very hard to watch, as it was to be there and see you and Tony push her down the aisle. That took my breath away. That made it real. But I’m glad I was there to hear your words, feel her presence, and witness such a strong and brave family embracing the unthinkable and taking the next steps to “how” you can honor her.
    My love and support in whatever you need is wrapped around you. I hope you feel it. “You did good” Libby. You said it yourself. You did good. Don’t ever forget that. And now Jennifer is doing good, her cells are doing good. And I can’t wait to see how she is honored in your lifetime, and beyond that. Many HUGS.

  5. Thank you for sharing Jennifer’s beautiful service. I have been following Jennifer’s life since you started sharing it with us. I can’t imagine the pain your family has suffered since she went to heaven. I couldn’t help but think when you commented that she would’ve been a wonderful Mommy, she was a wonderful Mommy to her siblings. You allowed her that privledge. Just as you have shared that you became her Mommy, not through birth but through love, Jennifer was being a Mommy to her siblings through love. So not only has Jonathan, Nicholas and baby Charlotte lost their beautiful sissy, they have lost their 2nd mother. Perhaps Jennifer’s journey here on earth was to help parent them until you got the hang of it! And have you! You are a wonderful parent to all 4 of your babies. Please take care of yourself and my prayer is for you to find the joy in your life again, not just for you but for Jennifer. Pinkie swear!

  6. Thank you for sharing such a precious moment with us. I know it was and is unbelievably difficult. I just about lost it when the mother and son sang “you’ll be in my heart”. believe it or not, that was mine and my brothers song, because of our age gap I was married when he was 8, so I left home and that was our song to each other. My parents made sure they played it at his funeral, it was a very very special moment for me. I just couldn’t believe my ears when I saw it on your video.
    You are unbelievably amazing to open up and share this with us. I have nothing but love and respect for you girl!
    Love, Sarah

  7. The heaviness of emotion that overtook the room was incredible this day. The music and your words perfectly captured her beauty and spirit.
    She will forever be missed.

  8. From the bottom of my heart thankyou so much for letting me be there. Thankyou for sharing her with us all. She was and is and always will be anamazing bbeautiful girl. Thankyou. ♡

  9. Thank you for sharing the most amazing celebration of life I have ever seen. I read all your posts everyday first thing in the morning (I am on the east coast), and I am truly inspired by you Libby. You may doubt yourself lately, but trust me….you are an amazingly strong woman. I will continue to pray for you, Tony, Jonathan, Nicholas, and Charlotte…and Jennifer. I am so confident her cells are going to make the difference…it has to be the reason for this. God Bless You.

  10. I will never forget the wonderful service that day, and I’ll never forget JLK. She has forever changed us. Love and prayers always to the Kranz family. xoxo

  11. Oh man. I can only watch a little at a time. Tears. Tears. Tears. I read about your pain, Libby, but the photos really show it. And Tony’s too – so deep, such pain. You are a beautiful mommy with a beautiful family minus one. Hug.

  12. Thank you for sharing with those of us who could not attend. Everything about it was beautiful, just like your Jennifer. You are a great speaker, Libby. The world is forever changed and she will never be forgotten. Your family will always be in my heart. Love and prayers to you all. <3

  13. Thank you Libby for posting the service, I was so sad that I wasnt able to make the service, but now watching it I feel I was there in my heart. I missed Jennifer everyday and I pray and think of all of you daily even though we’ve never met I feel like I know you. Thank you again. . Big hugs and Angel kisses. . You and your family and Jennifer will Forever be in my thoughts and prayer.. i know you mentioned you read these so i hoping this gets to you my Daugher and I made you something we would like to give you. Please let me know the best way to get it to you. You can reach me at jst4fn0223@yahoo.com Thank you again

  14. I have been following the story of your daughter for months now. Sitting back quietly, constantly grasping for another blog post. I’ve been trying to learn more about the journey you have faced. Trying to learn what I can do, how I can help. While I too have been touched by cancer (really, who hasn’t), I have no knowledge of the turmoil you have faced. I have no words of wisdom; I have nothing witty to say to bring a smile to your face. The only thing I have is my truth. I am from your little garlic town, and while I moved away a few years ago your family and your story have touched my heart. I have run on the levees you run on. I have played at the parks your children play at. So in some odd way I feel a connection, like I somehow also lost Jennifer. I have never cried over someone I didn’t know before. I have never felt invested in the wellbeing of someone I didn’t know before. I didn’t know I could love a little girl I never met before. I do want to thank you, Libby. Thank you for sharing your story. Thank you for sharing your grief. Thank you for showing what it means to fight. I’ve seen other woman say this but it’s the gods honest truth, YOU have made me a better mother. Your story has made me a better mother. JENNIFER has made me a better mother. And as I reread that I know it means absolutely nothing. But I have to thank you for it. It’s awful and terrible and really fucking unfair; but thank you so much for making me life for today with my son. I, for one will never get sick of you talking about Jennifer. I will never stop visiting your blog and I will never give up hope that a cure will be found; a cure in honor of that beautiful little girl. Your little glitter princess. I am sending you so much love and light, Libby.

  15. Very emotional watching this video. Tears flowing. Thank you for much for sharing this video. It was an honor to be able to attend her services. I will forever have the image of you and Tony pushing her down the aisle. That will never go away for me. I am still here rading every word you write. Not a day goes by that I don’t think or pray for you. Forever 6

  16. I am in awe and amazement at your speech Libby. Your strength in that moment and your most beautiful words. All I can say is that your speech and your ability to speak it only shows how much you so deeply love your daughter. It is hard to watch and I feel so much anger because no mother should ever have to feel this kind of pain, lose and emptiness. You are an amazing Mommy to your 4 children.

  17. Thank you for sharing. Beautiful way to remember here. Love and prayers to all of you. Can you tell me the name of the book you read and who it is by.

  18. Incredible.

    It looks like you gave her the most amazing life. Thank you so much for sharing this touching and emotional video. I feel so honored to have been able to see this. My heart absolutely aches for everyone who was in Jennifer’s life.

    You are incredible people who gave that little girl such a fulfilling and happy life.

  19. I am sorry, it bothers me that I typed “that little girl”, I didn’t mean that to sound the way I’m hearing it in my head. I didn’t mean it to sound insensitive. I just didn’t realize how much the service video effected me. I had to watch it a little at a time. I realize when I was doing this, that you don’t get to do that with your grief. I am so, so sorry. My heart aches terribly and my stomach is left in knots. But I am so glad I was able to watch it. I am sorry again for referring to Jennifer as “that little girl”. Truly, didn’t mean to offend.

  20. What a beautiful service and tribute to your angel Libby. I am in awe of you and your familys strength and I pray that every day that passes that God lays his hands of healing on you, your children and your family. God Bless Jennifer.

  21. Absolutely perfect. You all did an amazing job planning and executing the service. She is such a blessing and will continue to touch so many people. Thank you so much for sharing this with those of us that wanted so badly to be there. I loved seeing her dance and I know she is dancing in heaven and having dance parties with Jesus and his angels. You make me so proud, my friend. ***Glitter On***

  23. Thank you so much for allowing us to be there and for sharing the video. It was such a beautiful tribute to JLK. Much love Libby. Always.

  24. Thank you for sharing Libby. Wish we could have been there… glad AJ’s parents could be there to show our support. You all will forever be in our thoughts and prayers. Hugs…

  25. Thank you for sharing this. For sharing the first time, and sharing the video now with those of us who couldn’t make it. Your selflessness keeps inspiring me. God bless you and your family and Jennifer’s cells.

  26. Thank you for sharing this video. It was beautiful and so touching. Like many others, I don’t know you but stumbled across this page and have been reading your blog every day since. I’m blown away by your strength and after watching this video, I couldn’t just be a silent observer anymore. I had to tell you how amazing I think you are and how lucky I think your kids are to have a mom like you. I wish you all the very best in surviving this.

  27. Thank you for sharing. I just watched…and cried…and grieved. I’ve been wanting to watch – it was a beautiful tribute. Much love to you and your family and friends.

  28. Thank you, Libby. Thank you for sharing Jennifer with all of us. Thank you for showing us what true strength looks like.

  29. Thank you for sharing your most private moments to all of us
    You are such an inspiration to all of us. You have touched so many lives by bringing awareness. Thank you for sharing your personal story. Jennifer is proud of her family and throwing glitter around heaven

  30. What a beautiful tribute for a beautiful princess. Jennifer had so much love for life and her family. Watching the video I could see the love your family and Tonys share. I lost it right as the video began to see you and Tony walk Jennifer in. OMG the pain you but have felt. Libby you and Tony are a wonderful and giving couple. Its so obvious you give your children your all each and everyday. I have experienced a family full of love in watching this video. The closeness and the love is so evident and how wonderful it is to have that. I can only say thank you for sharing this and what a honor to be able to watch this. Your a strong lady Libby and I dont know that I could of pulled off like you did. You and Tony and your whole family continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. I am getting together a fundraiser in honor of your sweet “Glitter Girl Jennifer”. I want to be a part of this fight against this monster. Sending hugs and love to you and Tony and your family…<3 <3

  31. I think it’s wonderful that you captured so many moments on film/video. We get so caught in life up we forget to take photos. It was a beautiful ceremony and I feel really honored to have watched it. You take my breath away Libby. Sending hugs to you and yours.

  32. I think of your family daily, I have no words. Just know you have so much love surronding you. Praying for you all, beautiful service, my heart hurts for you!

  33. Beautiful. Loving. Sweet. Heartbreaking. What a beautiful service! I’ll admit that I got up and danced (at my desk at work!) along with everyone else with tears streaming down my face. Thank you for sharing this Libby. You are loved!

  34. I sat here for 1 hour 38 minutes and 15 seconds alternating between sobbing…loud gasping sobs, and smiling at how beautiful she was, and is. I will never ever take my children for granted. Thank you Libby, and thank you Jennifer, for showing me how to love. I never knew Jennifer, but she has been and always will be in my thoughts EVERY single day. Much love to you Libby…from one mother to another.

  35. Absolutely beautiful!! I never knew her, but she truly shined through the service!! The love your family has was radiating. Jesus, thank you for this sweet baby girl! Let us fight for a cure, love each other more, and shine for you!!! Prayers for your beautiful family!

  36. While watching the memorial service I was sitting looking out the Window and this beautiful little humming bird flew up to the Window looked in as if it was peeking in at me and then flew away, it was the neatest thing, Libby the services again was just beautiful and what a wonderful celebration of life, at the end i have to admit I sat in my chair at my desk and danced with everyone in the video. Jennifer will never be forgotten and forever in my heart. Thank you again for sharing.

  37. Beautiful Service. I am glad to have been able to watch this, as I was unable to attend. I could have listened to you talk about her all day! Thank you for sharing her with us! Prayers for your family each and every day!

  38. Thank you for sharing. A beautiful tribute to your darling Jennifer. Sending prayers of comfort and peace to your family. <3

  39. I remember hearing the audible gasp of the collective audience when you guys wheeled her in. My heart broke in so many ways for you all. Thank you for letting us who only knew her through your blog attend and share our grief as well.

  40. That intense heartache that I felt at her service that day, came rushing back as I watched the video. I can’t believe you live this every day. This feeling that is more intense than mine. This nightmare. I have never met you or Jennifer, but I think about her every day. She is that amazing. She has drawn so many people who have never met her. You were so lucky to have her in your life, even for a short while.

    Forever 6.

  41. That was awesome. I was waiting for you to show it. I’m so glad you finally posted it. The whole thing was so genuine. You should be proud.

  42. What a beautiful tribute to JLK, she truly was an angel sent from Heaven. Lifting you up in prayer and keeping your family in my heart.

    Love from the Grigsby’s

  43. First of all, thank you for sharing this with all of us. Second of all, thank you for teaching all of us how a mother’s love should look, warts and all. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this angel’s journey. Jennifer may have had only 6 short years here on earth, but her life will touch thousands. The story you read at the end of her service is not just a pretty story in a book. It is real. Jennifer and Jesus are having the dance party of the century. She will be waiting with open arms for all of you to join her. Praying for you everyday.

  44. The service you arranged for Jennifer was beautiful, as heartbreaking as it must have been for you. I too buried my firstborn daughter years ago. Jennifer is a gift from God sent to you, to care for, for her short time with us. You have allowed so many to know of her, be forever touched by her and to love her. Thank you. The healing will be a lifetime but you will in time, have happiness without the guilt. Jennifer’s memory will never diminish which will allow you to be forever thankful for the honor God chose upon you to have of, being her mother. God Bless you and your beautiful family.

  45. You honored your sweet girl with grace and authenticity.

    PS- I was looking at Tony and you in the video and thought “wow, Jennifer looks so much like you both”. It is amazing how that happens 🙂 My sweet Korean daughter looks a lot like me and my husband at times too. It is all about being blessed as a family. You are all one.

  46. U have such a beautiful, loving family. I watched in tears and smiles as I saw pictures and videos of ur beautiful little girl. Thank u so much for allowing us to share in this moment with u. Forever 6 JLK, u will never be forgotten.

  47. Thank you sharing your beautiful angel, Jennifer with us. I feel as if I know your family through your sweet daughter’s service.

    My sister lost her 21 year old son, Christopher on 8-29-05 after a doctor gave him the wrong chemotherapy. He fought cancer for just one month when the error was made. The error was made at Kaiser in San Jose but he died at Stanford surrounded by a loving family, much like yours.

    Believe it or not, you will be ok one day. Never, ever the same as you will have to find a “new normal”. But, every time you share your daughter with someone you are keeping her memory alive.

    You are an amazing woman and I know Jennifer was right there with you giving you the strength to speak and say all that you did at Jennifer’s service.

    God bless you all.

  48. All I can think to say is Thank YOU! Thank you and your amazing family for sharing that with the world! I miss Sissy too, but would never have known her if not for her struggle. I HATE that you live the life you do now, it makes me f-ing pissed OFF…and yet I feel blessed? Otherwise I never would have known the amazing human she was OR wanted to beat that CANCER into oblivion! Thank you Kranz family! I believe what you and Jennifer have done will save another family! It just really, really, really sucks that it had to be at the expense of such a beautiful angel!

  49. That was beyond beautiful. What an incredible tribute to an amazing little girl. Thank you for sharing, Libby. <3

  50. Beautiful. Your entire family showed such grace. Jennifer was so obviously loved. She lived a wonderFULL life. You should be so proud of your strength Libby and of the life you provided – you are simply amazing.

  51. Brave with love. You’re a rock, Libby. Tony is a lucky man and your children picked a wonderful Mama. They all need you to make it, Jennifer needs you to push through to continue the legacy she built with you. Thank you for sharing, it was a true life celebration.

  52. Thank you so much for sharing this. I was able to be there in person–felt a need to be there really–but my 10 year old daughter, who has been so very moved by your beautiful Jennifer, was not able to be with me that day to help you celebrate the 6 years Jennifer graced this world with her presence. This made my daughter very sad but she was happy I could be there for the both of us. My daughter has kept the picture of Jennifer I brought home for her from the celebration and checks in with me each night to see the pictures you post on your blog. She also wrote a letter to Jennifer to tell her how she feels about her and how much she wishes she could have met her in person. She keeps the letter with Jennifer’s picture. The reason I allow my daughter to feel this way about a beautiful little girl she never got to meet (or maybe she did–Gilroy is still a small town to me and my daughter talks to every kid she meets) is this…my daughter was born premature and with a life-threatening birth defect that was miraculously found and surgically corrected before it was too late. A chance 33% of newborns do not get. Not a day goes by that I do not feel blessed by the fact it was found in time and I still have the little girl I ached to have. Although my daughter does not yet know how incredibly sick she was or what her illness did to me as her parent, her ordeal as a newborn has stayed with her in the form of wanting to be a doctor who, in her words, “Helps little kids who are sick by making them better”. Since learning about Jennifer and the horrific things she and your family went through, my daughter is even more determined to work hard to help kids be and stay healthy. I thank your Jennifer for that. I thank you for sharing her with us all. I posted to you once before and mentioned to you that Jennifer’s impact on this world is still to come. I believe that wholeheartedly. Her tumor will help develop medical breakthroughs that will help to treat or even cure others and her story will continue to inspire people like my daughter to grow up and make a difference. Jennifer Lynn Kranz is (yes ‘IS’) a force and she will change this world for the better. Through you, she already has. Gilroy is still here behind you–even when you can’t see or hear us.

  53. Libby & Tony – There is no way to watch this and NOT believe that God gave YOU Jennifer,knowing that you would give her the love and happiness she deserved and you did NOT fail Him. These pictures/videos prove that you provided Jennifer with THE best life any little girl could have wished for. Jennifer was ALWAYS smiling and you allowed her to be carefree….to be HER….Please allow yourself to know that you can and WILL be the same loving parents to your living baby dolls…..Jennifer will never ever forget the life she was given, because God gave you her!! HE knew His choice was perfect and I pray that you know that too! What a beutiful service and I know Jennifer was right there with you all…..dancing in the end and counting her blessing for having you as her loving parents! <3

  54. Thank you for sharing, Libby…It was a beautiful celebration of a beautiful life…Sending love and hugs always.

  55. Thank you so much for sharing this video of the celebration of Jennifer. Never having met her, and yet I know in my heart what a special little girl she was. God bless all of you on this journey and remember that we will all be reunited once again. I can’t wait to meet her.

  56. Thank you for sharing, we felt so bad not being there for this service….I hopes you would post it someday and watches the entire thing… So touching and such a perfect expression of your family! So sobbing with a glass of wine in one hand I was honored to learn more about Jennifer and her purpose for this world. I especially love the end as my fondest memories of the Sharrenberg family are dancing memories! Keep the joy, it was her gift ❤️

  57. The service was beautiful, and I feel incredibly honored to have been there in person. Dancing for JLK was amazing. I keep you in my prayers daily. <3

  58. Libby ~
    Such a beautiful service, thank you for sharing it. She touched so many in her six short years. Lifting daily prayers for you all ~ Peace be with you.

  59. Oh Libby.
    For all the strength, for all the “right” words…. this is just not bloody fair.
    Thank you for sharing this, for those of us that have followed and keep following Jennifer and your journey from afar.
    Much love from Australia xx

  60. Libby,

    Thank you for sharing. It was beautiful, all of it. I wish I could have been there. You have a beautiful, warm and loving family. Please know there are so many of us reading and supporting you, but may not post for not being able to find the words. You are a wonderful mother. Trust you gave Jennifer just what she needed, when she needed it. No one could have loved or supported her more. I pray each day for God to watch over you and your family and to bring you through this painful journey.

  61. Libby,
    What a beautiful service to celebrate the life of your precious baby girl. And what wonderful memories those videos and photos share. I think I posted this same sentence before, but one day those memories will bring you happiness not sadness, make you smile and not cry. Although I’be never met you I feel you are one of the most enduring, loving and wonder people I have ever encountered. God Bless you and your family.

  62. This made me cry like a baby….such a beautiful & brave little girl!!! I so wish I had been able to meet her in person, just to feel her strength!!! God has one very special angel looking over her family!!!

  63. You speaking about and to your sweet daughter in front of the sparkly, glittery backdrop was beautiful. Thank you for sharing her service. Continued prayers to you and your family.

  64. I have fallen in love with you and your family the last couple of months while following your blogs and Jennifer’s journey. I wanted to be at the service but thought I wouldn’t be able to go back to work after all the emotions. The service was beautiful and perfect just like Jennifer and I cried the whole way through watching it. You did a beautiful job speaking and giving tribute to your Jennifer. Your family have constantly been in my thoughts and prayers and will always be in my prayers. I hope I can meet Jennifer when I go to heaven.

  65. There is just a tiny second in the footage when Jennifer is being brought in where you reach across and take Tony’s hand. You are so much stronger than you know Libby.

    Also I noticed in the shot at 4.07 the hands of the man in the background form a perfect heart shape exactly between the two of yours above Jennifer 🙂

    Love and thoughts x

  66. Absolutely heartbreakingly beautiful. Everything…the songs, the speaking, the pictures, the dancing of the audience at the end…everything was a perfect tribute to your beautiful baby girl. I’ve never met you or your family, and don’t even live in the same part of the country as you…but I pray for you all the time, and I thank you for sharing your beautiful Jennifer with the world. She has left such a huge mark on the lives of so many…truly is making the world a better place STILL, and always will. God bless you and your family.

  67. One thing is for sure, your little glitter girl is very loved. Such a beautiful celebration of her life and your family.

  68. Jennifer has packed more love, smiles, joy and goodness into her 6 years on earth…than I have in my 52. I am in awe of her spirit and I am inspired to live a more meaningful life, and to open up in ways that I have remained closed. Thank you, JLK- I’m gonna give it a whirl…

  69. That was perfect, Libby. My favorite part was watching you speak directly to your 3 youngest while you were up there in front of all of those people. You spoke to them and made sure they heard the strength and love in your words. You have always been an amazing mom, and I hope that someday you’ll be able to see that you still are. Sending you so much love and thinking of you and your family every day.

  70. I remember that day so vividly. It was a loving celebration of an AMAZING life well lived. I remember not wanting her photo montage to end…I, like everyone who was there, rode a roller coaster of emotion, but mostly I felt love. Pure love for Jennifer streaming out of you and everyone who spoke or performed. She changed this world for the better, and I believe she will keep changing it…with her cells being studied for a cure…with the work for cancer that you (and the glitter quad!) will do…and reminding all of us to dance and laugh more. She was such a precious precious spirit…maybe too perfect for this world. I only spoke with you all a few times at preschool, but I remember being impressed with how polite and sweet Jennifer was. My daughter adored her and I wish I hadn’t been so shy, wish I’d arranged a playdate with you back then. I’ll never get sick of you talking about her here, Libby, I think all of us come here for our daily dose of Jennifer from you! The sweet older sister she was, the sassy dresser-I love hearing all of it. I pray for you often and hope that you can feel all the prayers being said and feel some measure of comfort when you need it most.

  71. Thank you!! Thank you for sharing Jennifer and her love and life!! An amazingly beautiful girl!!! An amazingly beautiful family!!! Thank you for allowing us to love and share her life and yours. So much love to you all.. And always in my prayers!!

  72. At work had to stop watching. I think a little part of all of us has not believed she is really gone. This kind of cements it. My mind can’t tell me this beautiful little girl didn’t die anymore, I can’t convince myself kids don’t die anymore. Love you Libby, Love you Jennifer.

  73. Wow. Amazing. Intense. Beautiful. Heartbreaking. Inspiring. Thank you for sharing. Sending love and prayers today and everyday.

  74. It really was a beautiful service, incredible energy in that room — it was HER all around us, so palpable. I will never forget the feeling in that room that day.

  75. Oh Libby. Not enough kleenex in the world to watch that. But I did beginning to end. When you patted her tiny coffin and grabbed for Tony’s hand, I felt the realness I feel when reading your blog. I think there may be little worse than seeing a child’s coffin. But truly, the service was perfection. Your words, incredible. You left nothing out. And finished with dancing at the end. Perfection. Much love. Thinking of you all.

  76. Hi Libby. You don’t know me, and I’ve never met your family. I didn’t learn about your beautiful daughter until right after Christmas and I’ve followed you since. I can’t imagine the pain you go through, parents should not have to bury their children. I’m a nurse, so I see sickness and death on a daily basis, but it’s different in children. They’re innocent, and have done no wrong. As a single mother of a 3 year old, I just want to say thank you. Thank you for making me aware of how precious life is, how my tomorrows aren’t guaranteed with my baby girl, and to absorb every moment I’ve got with her. From reading your entries, I say “yes” like you when I other wise would have said no. I allow cookies for breakfast every now and then because what’s it really hurting. If we’re still watching frozen at 10pm even though it’s past bedtime, we stay up and finish it. So thank you for making me a better mother. Your baby Jennifer has touched so many lives, mine included. So continue loving through your darkness and know there are people out there always praying for you. You’ll see her sweet face again, we’re promised that by the great Lord himself. Enjoy your Easter the best you can Libby. Imagine what the egg hunts look like upstairs 🙂

  77. It was beautiful. You are beautiful. Your family is beautiful. Jennifer is and always will be beautiful. Don’t ever stop talking about her. Share her love for life. Live your life the way you know she would live. Dance Libby. Please don’t stop dancing.

  78. No words…just deep deep gratitude and love for you from a person you have never met. Thank you for sharing Jennifer and your family with us Libby.

  79. I have been reading this for some time. Each time I read my heart aches, an ache deep down inside that I can’t describe. I don’t know you or or family, but I so badly want to take your pain from you. The raw emotion you share with us, it’s beautiful. I watched the service and as soon as the end song came on, my 2 year old son, Cash started dancing. It brought me to tears.

    Nothing anyone says makes it better. Nothing I can say will make it better. You aren’t alone. You have so many people in your corner supporting you and praying for you.

    She was a beautiful girl with a beautiful spirit evident to all, even strangers from the internet.

    Much love from my family to yours. And constant prayers.

    Love,
    Brooke Estrada

  80. My heart broken into a million pieces still allowed me to see all the love . Libby and Tony because of you Jeniffer was so happy, so sweet, such a character!
