I'm still so sad, as I know a lot of you are, I've tried to post on here for awhile, but just don't have the right words to say how much I will miss your smile and your laugh. I loved you from the first time I laid eyes on you and will love you til the end of my time. Love you so much!

I am so saddened to hear that Jill has passed. My first memories are laughing together I remember being at Cathy's and riding over on the moped to visit Jill or heading up town in Jr High going to lunch at Rodgers drug store and smiley face cookies at Peterson's Bakery. Praying for the whole family ~ Gods Peace Jani Diehl Roe

Hey Jill, Not sure if we ever spoke much after JHS, but I do remember being your lab partner quite a few times in Mr. Meyers science class. We had some good times. I hope you find peace.
