Support Fund For Emma & Katie

Strong, loyal, loving and full of life; that is what family and friends would tell you about Jennifer.  She was a wonderful wife to her husband Pat, whom she married in 1992.  Jennifer wanted nothing more after marrying Pat than to be a mother.  After many miscarriages & complications, Pat & Jennifer welcomed their first daughter, Emma Rose. It was a true blessing for them, however just a few short months later, God made a miracle and Jennifer found out she was expecting another blessing.  Exactly 1 year to the date of Emma's 1st birthday, Jennifer and Pat welcomed into the world their second daughter, Katie Lynn.  Jennifer raised her children with every ounce of compassion and nurturing love from within her.  Her daughters were her pride and joy; her entire life.

Aside from Jennifer being an amazing wife and mother, she was also a beautiful sister, daughter, aunt and friend.  She enriched every ones life whom she came in contact with.  She could make everyone smile with her humor and feel comforted with her care and love.  Jennifer was a true blessing to everyone.  Making memories with her loved ones and never letting a moment in life pass by.  In every word she spoke, every hug she gave and in everything she did, Jennifer put in all her strength and endurance, fearing nothing.  However one fear she did have was her struggles she had her entire life with health conditions such a diabetes and Lupus.  Jennifer feared that battling with Lupus, would shorten her time with her loved ones, especially her daughters.

Sadly on February 9, 2015, every ones lives unexpectedly changed when Jennifer was called to heaven.  Leaving behind her two beautiful girls, now ages 11 & 10, her husband Pat, her mother Rita, her sister Kim, nieces and nephew many loved ones.  The shock of all of this has truly not even begun to settle in with everyone, however every ones main focus is the support, love, care and upbringing Jennifer and Pat's daughters are going to need.  Jennifer's sister Kim, who is a wonderful mother to 5 kids (ages 14, 9, 6 and the twins, 9 months) will be stepping in as the full time maternal figure for Emma and Katie.  Even though Pat will always been the girls' father and be by their side every step of the way, Kim knows that she will be doing as her sister always asked of her, "to keep their mother's spirit alive and not let them forget her."  On many occasions, Jennifer had spoken with Kim, her only sibling, ensuring that no matter what ever happened, Jennifer wanted Kim to step in and always take care of her daughters, always enrich their lives as she did and promise to remind them of all the memories their mother created.

The funds raised will not only go towards the upbringing of the girls but will also go towards the purchase of a vehicle that will be feasible and big enough for Kim to commute all the children, as there will be 7 of them.  We are reaching out to friends and family during this tragic and hard time to help support in any way possible.

May God Bless you and we thank you for taking time and consideration.
