It was with great sadness to learn of Jill's passing. We were pals in Sinclair, Wyoming my senior in high school and Jill's freshman year. I then went off to college and lost contact with her. I always remember the great times we had together in our little town of Sinclair. I have wondered all these years about Jill and wish I could have been contact with her. I am so happy she had such a wonderful family and had such cherished time with them.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Jill's friends and families. I grew up in Sinclair next door neighbors to Jill's family. She was always such a pretty, vivacious girl and was spoiled by her big brothers when she was a little tyke. I lost track of her and am glad she had a wonderful family and sounded like she was greatly loved.
