Still Blank

I feel like I need to write something, but I have no idea what that should be. Just watching the cursor blink, trying to figure out what I should say... how i can express how I feel.

Right now, I can't imagine what her family feels like. With CF, you always know that early death is almost inevitable... but it's not supposed to come so swiftly.

I spent yesterday, finding all the places that I knew her. Looking at pictures. Tyring to figure out if she left with any regrets. Trying to figure out if I left anything unsaid. I don't think I did. But that doesn't really comfort me right now.

I am taking care of myself... I'm actually doing better about doing that right now. I keep trying to think what I can do to make myself feel that I am honoring her. That I'm doing what she would want for me. Right now, that's taking care of the physical the best I can, while the emotional works its way through.

I did that today and yesterday. Looking through her pictures on FB and myspace. She was so happy and sad.

Hi Talana,

While she was here for far too little time, I like to think Jenn left this world without any regrets. She was a kind, sweet person and very much in love with a wonderful guy named Andy that really completed her. She will be dearly missed.

I was so sorry to hear of Jenn's passing. I didn't really know her that well, but she was a facebook friend. I can't imagine the pain you're feeling since you knew her soo much better than I did. I pray for her family during this time and I hope that their pain and yours lessens a little with each day that passes.

Thank you for letting me know and thanks to Heather's dad for the details.

Jenn was a funny, talented, lovely young woman who loved her friends and supported all of us through life's trials. I cannot believe she is gone, but I am thankful that she is no longer suffering.

So deeply sorry to hear about Jen. I had been thinking about the last project she posted on Ravelry, that beautiful crocheted blanket.

Since Jenn first started her blog, I had been a regular visitor. I remember many photos of the lovely young lady showing her projects happily. I have never met Jenn in person, but she became a friend I'd always wonder and want to know how she was doing if she didn't post for a while. I will miss her, and I will always remember her.
