King, Jeanette “Jen” Marie (Studna)'s Guestbook

I am terribly sorry for your loss. I knew Jen all the way through school. She was kind and caring, and looked out for those who were hurting. Sometimes kids can be cruel to each other. If Jen saw one of us hurting, she was the first there to give comfort and remind us we weren’t alone and the bullies were wrong. Whether I’ve acted selfishly or charitable, she was always a good friend. I have not, nor will I ever forget her kindness.

You were loved. And will be so missed. See you when I see you. Love, Mama C
