My cousin Jennifer was such a bright woman. We, along with my brother and several other cousins, were really close growing up. We spent all of our time together when we were younger, mostly during the summer as Jennifer at the time lived in North Carolina. I do not know when Jennifer's addiction had started, but I know when it ended. Her addiction ended when her life ended on June 30, 2008, 12 days after her 28th birthday. Jennifer was always so outgoing and she always made you laugh. She was an extremely caring person. No one knew she had this addiction. If they did know about her addiction, they did not know how to help her. Now she is gone and it has not even been a week. We all miss her so much. When we grew older we didn't spend so much time together, which is a blessing that I regret. I call it a blessing because I wasn't around to really witness her when she was high. This means I won't remember her that way. It's something, however, that I regret because I feel that I neglected her. I hope wherever she is now, she is looking down on us and knows we love and miss her so very much. R.I.P. Jenn. We will NEVER forget you. I hope you met up with Grandpa, Gladys, Anne and David. Watch over each other and the rest of us!!
