This amazing life was interrupted on February 12, 2018, when she suffered a massive stroke. Despite a valiant battle, her indomitable will and spirit could not overcome the damage to her brain, and she left this earth to step into the arms of her Lord on February 22, 2018. Although, knowing her, it was probably NOT a very quiet entrance into Heaven - I imagine her sashaying in, chocolate in one hand and wine in the other, saying "Woooooo, that was a hell of a ride!!! What's next???"
I hate that I have to ask for help, but I feel it's both my duty and my privilege to see that Jen is brought home to California to rest with her parents and sister. She did NOT want to be cremated, so the expenses for getting her here are not insignificant. All donations received will go toward her transport, burial and final expenses, ensuring her adored furbabies (one dog and one cat) find forever homes, and, if there's anything left over, arranging a memorial service and helping me go to Arizona to collect at least some of Jen's belongings, as she was living there at the time of her death.
I can't find adequate words to express what Jen means to me... my mentor and confidante, my soul-mate friend, my person, and I want to do everything in my power to honor her last wishes. She was sparkling, unique and irreplaceable, and the world is a dimmer place without her in it, but Heaven is much, much brighter.... Now I just have to figure out how to do without her. Any help anyone can give will be received with my eternal gratitude... thank you from the bottom of my heart.
One last thing .. in case anyone is interested, here's a link to her IMDB page... this is only a partial listing of her work, as she was uncredited for much of the work she did and some just hadn't been added to the page yet. She would hate that I'm bragging on her, but as her official minion, I feel it's my duty.
