Light Parade..  / Diana (Mom)  Read >>
Light Parade..  / Diana (Mom)
Hi Jen,

Tonight is the Christmas light parade in Holbrook. Remember when you and Pat were in it? You were little and you sat in a wagon and then we decorated the wagon like a present and your head stuck out the top with a bow on it... Pat pulled you with the go cart.. It kept breaking down and only made it to the corner. I laugh about it now because you both had fun even if you only made it to the corner by the Shell station.
Remember, we went to the parade every year and brought hot cider, hot cocoa and sub sandwiches. Those were good times Jen.. I was just remembering happier times not so long ago.. I love you yesterday, today and even more tomorrow... Hope you can see the lights tonight... Close

:< I miss you Jen :<  / Krista M. (sis)

Jen,

There's not a card, poem, or my own words, sweet enough. That sum up my feelings towards you.
You're my sister, You're my best friend,
You're everything to me.
You gave me the strength to conquer the world.
When I had a bad day you would turn it around.
Nothing could bring me down when I was with you.
You had my back and I had yours.
The issues we had we pulled through it together.
Always will!
Not a day goes by
 when I wont picture your beautiful smile.
Your smile will always make my day better.
You gave off nothing but positive energy.
No matter what the situation.
Rest in Peace Jen
( My Dog, My Ace, My Partner, and My Best Friend )
I Love You !


Always, Krista

Always Missing You!  / Kristy Dennis (Good Friend )  Read >>
Always Missing You!  / Kristy Dennis (Good Friend )
Hey Jen!  Well November is almost over and your still gone.  I hope things are going good for you up in heaven.  I know nobody can resist your smile and personality so I know you are making lots of friends up there.  Just don't forget about us down here Jen!  There are so many people that love and miss you and will continue doing so forever and I am one of them.  I think about you all the time.  Even something as stupid as hearing a linkin park song on the radio makes me think of you and the days and days we spent listening to that band and eating otter pops before softball practice.  We had so many crazy times together and it sucks so bad that we can't have anymore.  But that makes the ones we had even more special.  Things down here are doing good for me.  This semester is almost over and then only one more to go before I get to graduate in May.  I am so excited!  Baby Jacob is getting so big and cracks me up, he calls me "thiti".  It is so cute!  I remember how excited you were about him and how much you loved being an auntie!  You would have been a great mom jen!  There are so many things in life that you are going to miss out on and not be able to accomplish it just makes me mad thinking about it.  You were so successful in everything you did.  I remember when they made you take anger management classes in high school and we would always joke about it because everyone knew you weren't an angry person but that you just didn't put up with anyone's crap just like me.  You were so excited to go to your end of the year party with you anger management group because you knew there was going to be food!  That was Jen!  Always wanting to eat eat eat!  You wanted me to go but our teacher wouldn't let me.  We got along so good because we were so much alike.  I also remember when I thought I could eat more than you!  Big mistake!  We went to Taco Bell to see who could eat more mexican pizza'a.  I only ate one and was full and you had already ate two and was still eating more.  I was just sitting there laughing and then we went rolling out of there back to school!  You were so fun to hang out with.  Well Jen, I just thought I would stop by and reminisce about some good times we had together since I hadn't written in so long.  Love you Jen!   Love Always, Kristy Close

Happy Thanksgiving Jen!  / Jennifer Kay (Friends)
Jen, Happy thanksgiving! Sometimes life seems unfair, and it feels like there is nothing to be thankful for. But Jen, I'm so, so....so, thankful you came into my life. Even if it was for only two years,(it always seemed like we knew eachother forever) Maybe we did! : ) I know there is a reason I needed you at that time, I don't know what it is now, but I'm sure you do, and I'm a better person  from it. I love you babe, always and Forever!

Rock on "the Jens" FOREVER BUDDY!

So many "whys"?  / Donna Ebel (Friend)  Read >>
So many "whys"?  / Donna Ebel (Friend)
After reading Diana's (Jen's Mom)"Why?" tribute I could feel her frustration. So many of us parents who have lost our children to car accidents wish we would have done something to decrease the liklihood that our kids would be involved in a deadly accident.  I wish I would have told Krystal not to get in a car with an inexperienced driver.   I know she was going to be restricted to have passengers in her car for the first 6 months when she got her license.  I know I had told her not to get in a car if there weren't enough seatbelts but this didn't help on that December 9th, 2004 day.  Kids take chances.  Adults take chances.  Most of the time it is okay.  I wish I would have reminded her of a few safe rules that morning when I talked to her on the phone from her classroom.  I will never know if it would have mattered, but at least I would know that I did what I could to protect my baby.  Diana had a gut feeling that she shouldn't have let Jen go to Clear Creek that day.  But as a parent to a really neat, responsible, popular young lady it is hard to say "no" unless there is a really good reason.  A "bad feeling" wouldn't have set well with Jen that day. It is so hard to reflect on all the things that could have saved our children that day.  All in all, these accidents occurred because of inexperienced and irresponsible driving.  We are just trying to make our kids more and more independent as they grow up by letting them have more freedoms.  That's what we were doing when we let our kids participate in the daily activites those days.  Forever in our hearts and always on our minds.  Jen and Krystal loved life and for the few short years we had with them, life loved them. Love, Donna  Close

Jen,
         Im so sorry I havent written you in a while.  I guess its just harder sometimes than others.  Well I havent even told you about Bo and Luke!  Yeah I know another set of twins... my brothers twin boys.  I got to spend all day with them and there adorable.  I wish you were here w/us Jen.  This just really sux with out you.  Its too hard to believe that your really gone.  Today I was driving down the road and all I kept thinking about was your beautiful smile and gorgeous long blonde hair.  What I would give to hear that cute laugh of yours.  Im so sorry this happened.  This just doesnt seem right to me. Well I love you and I cant wait till we meet   again.                                    ~Luv yuh like a sis krista~

Why, why, why!  / Diana (Mom)
I am so sorry Jen... So sorry that I couldn't save you. Why did I let you go to clear creek that day, why? I didn't have a good feeling about it and I let you go anyway. I'm so angry at myself and so sad for you. What a rip off, huh? I wish I could talk to you one more time. I'd give anything to hear your voice, I mean anything. If I could I'd trade places with you right this second. I want you to live. I want you to see Pat's baby. I want so many things for you. I don't feel like you're in a better place and never will because a better place is here with your family who love and need you ~ just as you need us! There are very few things in this life that gave me as much joy as you did.. I will always know that you were cheated out of life. What a stupid accident! God I'm so mad I can't even think!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm sorry Jen ~ so sorry! Close

Good times  / Cortney (friend)
Hey Jen.. i miss you girl.. I went to the volleyball games in Payson this past weekend...the last time i was there was when i was a senior in highschool.  i remembered so clearly the regionals there my senior year of volleybal.  how much fun we had.  i can still see us playing together and moving so smoothly on the court.  you taking mine and lauras hands and squeezing them as tight as you can b/c you "needed the strength."  i need the squeeze now jen.  i wish i could see you and feel the power in your hands.  you always had a way of making me smile.  I was so happy for hte time i was able to be with you.  Playing with you was so much fun.  i remember sitting down with you one day and you told me that the first day you came to practice in Show Low you didn' like me.  you thought i was a stuck up brat.  that made me laugh when you told me that.  i am sorry for making you think that but it obviously didn't stop our friendship.  you must not have thought that after you got to know me.  and also about volleyball when me, you , jen, krista, and bobbi saw that one "guy' with "corky"  oh my word jen.  i dont remember us ever laughing harder than that.  we were hiding in the room and then he came and knocked on the door and we didn't know what to do.  so we didn't do anything and he left.  that was the funniest thing.  we would always wave as if corky was waving.  I miss those times!  But i am so glad i have them.  they bring a smile to my face when i think of you but i still get sad that youare gone.  i miss you.  my heart is full of joy that i know you but it will always have a hole b/c i lost someone so dear to me.  you are a special girl jen... i love you adn miss you.. you do good up there and look out for us all here.  i know you are shining down with that big smile of yours that lghts up a room.. thanx for that jen.. love ya girl Close

Good Morning Jen~ Your mom is simply amazing (as you already know). The colorful flowers are beautiful and adds so much life to a peaceful place. Elizabeth was sad when we left and Ryan said, "That girl looks like an angel. She is an angel, she's up in heaven." Pretty smart for six years old. You are beautiful, Jen. Shine Bright. Close

We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name,In life we loved you dearly,in death we do the same,It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you,the day God called you home.You left us peaceful memories,your love is still our guide;and though we cannot see you,you are always at our side.Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same,but as God calls us one by one,the chain will link again.

My heart hurts so much tonight Jen. It hurts for me and your Mom and for you and for Donavon. This just isn't fair.  I can still hear your mom she said so many times her heart hurts. It really does. It hurts. Real Bad Jen, more than anyone will ever know.  Some days it's almost more than we can bear. Will we continue to be strong. I'm not so sure some days. Life just didn't deal us what we were thinking.
God Bless you girl!!!

 Hi Jen,
 I was thinking today about softball and you. Hey remember we would warm up everyday and I suck at warming up so you always had to run forever. Maybe I contibute to why You were so skinny j/k. 

Then there were those times when we would bat "oh Boy!"
We were playing that one time where I swing the bat close to the ground "like skip it" and you would jump over it; I hit you with the bat and we laughed forever. Or when we were in the batting cage and you got hit with the ball. None of us laughed because we thought you were really hurt then Scott started laughing. It was so fun, even when we froze our butts off running poles.

Oh yeah Cayla is going to have a baby eventually so watch out for her "k" 
I know you will.

Have a great day!!!!!
Sheila Close

Jen,
I miss you so much. No one will ever replace you. You are always and forever in my heart. I can't help but dream about what life would be like if you were here.  I wish things were oh so different.  Some of your favorite singers have came out with new cds and I know you would be coming over with a freshly burned CD for me.  Now Im making cds listening to them but it's not the same.  Nothing is the same.  I wonder all the time if your around and if you get to see me... Sometimes I feel like Im not alone and theres something really special looking over my shoulder. I wish I could just give you a huge hug and play with your hair.  What I would give to have you infront of my mirror getting ready telling me to fix your hair. Then what would come next is you asking if I could pick out a cute outfit for you to wear.  All those little things mean so much... at the time it seems like nothing.  All I want to do is go back!  But that can't happen.  Of all things to have to happen why this?  This is so unfair. I guess this isnt helping things but I cant help it.  I need you... I love you so much.  You could make any bad day turn right back around and it would be like the best day ever.  Having a bad day wasn't possible when you were around.  Even when I would call you, you still made it all better.  Instead of being just a phone call away to 45 minutes away... its like this.  I can write and write and write and cry a thousand tears but the pain will never heal.  We had so much fun together.  We didn't need anything special to have a good time.  I remember working with you at The Mesa and at Cholla.  One time at the Mesa you were cracking up laughing cause I would go up to a table and talk w/ a funky accent. But Cholla was so much fun.  Especially on fridays when Paige would go out of town and my dad was gone we would pop in a DVD and just sit back and watch movies.  And then we would forward the work phone to my cell and we would leave early or take and extra long lunch.  Then we would have all of our little duties like shred old paper work and clean... On our way to work we would stop by safeway and get a jalepeno bagel w/cream cheese! Hmm that was so good. Then when payday came we were all excited.  We would go cash are checks together and be two happy campers.  We did everything together.  We would get ready, go shopping, go out, eat breakfast, lunch and dinner... we ate, slept and pretty much breathed together.  We know each other like the back of our hands.  I remember on Fridays when you would be leaving Showlow to come down I would be so excited!!  Or that one time when your little black truck took a dump on you and I went and picked you up.  I went super super fast too.  I was worried you were gonna pop open the hood and get burnt or something.  I remember that day like yesturday because you and Ron were talking about Tupac and Biggie.  I remember how hard it was on Sunday when you had to go back to Showlow.  Wede always end up taking extra laps before you had to go.  Then ide go with you to gas up and youde get our usual ice water w/ 2 jerkys.  Jen I miss you so much... :<  im sorry this happened... luv yuh like a -sis- krista :<

Unconditional Love  / Krista McKinnon (sis)
Hey Jen!  Ive been thinking about you alot lately and Im speechless.  I dont even know what to say anymore.  Im so sorry... I wish I would have been there that day.  I wish I wish I wish***  I just dont think this was supposed to happen.  A Tupac song came on last night and I almost bursted into tears... Theres so many things that I wish I would have done.  You were the most important person to me...  You were all I had.  No one will ever fill your shoes.  You kept so many people strong and together.  I dont know how you did it but you just did.  I think we all wish we could be a little bit more like you.  You truely are a special girl.  You just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.  The people that really know you, really know that wasnt you and that wasnt where you wanted to be.  You wanted to be home and with your friends.  You always made the best of what you had and what you were going through and you did.  Thats exactly what you did.  I wish I would have went to Show Low with you.  I wanted to walk with you so bad when it came graduation time but there were alot of things that were keeping us apart those precious last few months.  Maybe that happened for a reason I really dont know.  But to get that phone call that you were hurt tore my world apart that instant.  I had my doubts about how bad everyone was saying it was... I remember the day of graduation like yesturday I picked up the phone to call you and tell you congratulations etc... and my phone rang and for some reason I just knew it was you... sure was your little cute voice telling me congratulations and before we could make any big plans you had to go to rehersal.  I still have all of your e-mails you wrote me... we always planned on hanging out but something would get in the way... your sports or me going out of town or your new job.  I remember that whole yr. how nervous you were for graduation.  You would tell me how you cant manage money and you don't know how to cook and I was just like ohh who cares I cant wait till we graduate and were finally gonna be on our own.  You said as long as you were with me you felt like everything was gonna be ok.... You always felt safe with me.  And I always felt like I was together and organized when I was with you.  You should see me now my cars wrecked and dirty my room is scary dirty/clean clothes everywhere.  I guess I just don't care about much anymore.  This past yr was so hard jen and I know you know... this yr I seem to be more angry about the whole thing.  It just makes me sick to my stomach to think about it.  We had soo many plans together.  Last yr I kept telling myself just finish school get a good job make jen proud.... well I did all that but in the end I wasnt happy... I guess I was hoping you could come back or I could be with you... Who knows when that day will come.  I would rather have you here with me.  No one knows me like you know me.  I just don't understand.  Ill never understand.... your Jen... my best friend from when we were kids.  We all need you Jen... Im sorry Im such a stubborn person and hard headed.  Im not that way anymore.  I guess its too late now... :< luv yuh like a sis.  NO one will ever understand me but thats ok... I know you do.     Close

It ain't fair you died too young Like a story that had just begun But death tore the pages all away God knows how I miss you All the hell that I been through Just knowin' no one could take your place Sometimes I wonder Who you'd be today. Would you see the world, would you chase your dreams Settle down with a family I wonder what would you name your babies Somedays the sky's so blue I feel like I can talk to you And I know it might sound crazy. It ain't fair you died too young Like a story that had just begun But death tore the pages all away God knows how I miss you All the hell that I been through Just knowin' no one could take your place Sometimes I wonder Who you'd be today. Today, today, today Today, today, today. Sunny days seem to hurt the most I wear the pain like a heavy coat The only thing that gives me hope Is I know I'll see you again some day Someday, someday..

Sending prayers to Heaven.  / Melissa (Friend of Mom )
Everytime I look at my daughter, Elizabeth, I think about you and your mom. Elizabeth is my beautiful angel, so full of life, always ready to offer support or encouragement, and has a smile that will light up any room. I can't imagine life without her. My heart aches for you Di, and I want you to know that you are in my prayers everyday. Some of the choices I have made in my life have had a real impact on my daughter and I will never be able to make those up to her or change the awful feelings that she had to feel. Thinking of you and your mom, makes me angry that I have wasted so much precious time. Today is Elizabeth's birthday and if I could give her the world I would, but, all she wants is me. I am sending a prayer up to you for me and my sissy and for you and your mom. Thank you Jen for watching over us and keeping us safe. Keep Shining!! Close
