Jen's Wish

The amount of love that poured over Jen Hamilton in the days before she passed was immense. In her final days Jen made a certain request. She wanted to have a bench made in her memory, and for it to be placed at Linscott park in Swampscott. For those who aren't familiar with Linscott Park, it is located right beside the Hadley elementary school, where her children Timmy and Ruby attend. It overlooks both the school, the monument in town, and the ocean. To say it's beautiful is an understatement. This is where Jen and Tim would take their kids to ride bikes, to play ball, to watch fireworks on the Fourth of July, and to have picnics. And it's here where Jen would watch Timmy and Ruby play after school.

We want nothing more than to honor Jen's wishes and place a bench in her name on these grounds.

The cost to do this is 1000$, and we're confident that we can make this happen. Donating to this would mean granting one of Jen's last wishes and also giving her family and friends a spot to sit and remember how lively, lovely and amazing she was. Thank you.
