Throughout all the changes that Hannah More has undergone during my seven years of attendance there, Jenny was arguably the school's greatest stalwart. I will always have fond memories of hearing her cheerful voice over the intercom in the morning during my time at Hannah More that always brightened up my day. She was extremely supportive of me and pretty much every student she encountered, and was loved by virtually everyone I knew. I would have never thought my last time seeing her would be during my visit to the school about 4 months ago, as I had very little prior knowledge about her condition and how dire it truly was, but at least I know she is at peace and is no longer suffering. I send my deepest condolences to her family - you have lost a wonderful human being.

Rest easy, Jenny.

My heartfelt condolences to Jess, Sam, Rick, Grandma, and the rest of the family. I've known Jenny for most of my life and it's hard to believe she's gone. I'm forever grateful that she helped me find my dog Bilbo, a sweet guy from the rescue. I will think of Jenny each time he comes running up to me, wanting to play.
