    I have been quite busy of late and to see this news is heart breaking. Jen and I met, so to speak, in 2009. When MrsABC nominated me for Moderator, Jen was right there help. Always kind, I took many ques from her, and had soooooo many wonderful conversations over the years with her. She was a mentor, a teacher, a Mom, and our friend. When I came back here, after a too long absence, Jen was one the first people I sought out, and all the years seemed to melt away. You could not help but love her.

    I will always be glad I came back in time to speak with her again. And I will miss her terribly. We all will.

    My lateness at doing this wasn't for lack of respect, but simply the inability to articulate what I want to say. (I've tried this a dozen times and deleted it every time)
    I can babble on for an hour about mindless things but can't seem to find the words when it's something important.

    Between you and our other missing friend, 2020 sure came in with a series of non-stop gut punches and I'll curse this year forever for it.
    The atheist in me believes that when we die, we just wink out, making the time we have here even more precious, but in your case...I hope I'm so terribly wrong about this.
    You've been my therapist, friend & confidant over the years and I doubt I'll ever find another great friend like you.

    Love, Michelle

    Do your demons, do they ever let you go..?
    When you've tried, do they hide, deep inside..?
    Is it someone that you know..?

    I haven't posted much lately, here or otherwise. I heard about this in December and thought about it. I never thought it sounded good, so I never hit "send."

    Having some time to think about it lately, I marvel at the patience she exhibited in suffering fools, and the wit she used to send them back to their hovels when the time was right. She certainly has a LOT more patience and tact online than I do. I recall joining PS maybe 12 years ago and watching the place kinda grind to a halt once. Just for the hell of it, I sent her a PM, to which she replied, Don't worry, just give it some time and it will pick back up--we're just working through some stuff. Her sense of fairness combined with a little acidity--that stuff doesn't just fall from a tree.

    So I'm not sure this is any better than the last iterations of this message, but I suppose it's time. Sad news indeed.

    Thought to chime in, and leave some words for Jenny as well.
    I knew very little about Jenny, yet it seemed like I knew her for so many years. She was definitely like an old good friend.
    She was that kind of person that would always have the time to listen to you, and help you if you needed it. Very outspoken, and so much down-to-earth.
    Didn't matter if you were one of her team mates, or just a regular user. She will always be there for you.
    She was a truly great kind and gifted person. One of those persons that you can count on the tip of your fingers.
    She's still greatly missed by me, and I still can't believe that she's no longer with us.

    I hope wherever you are now that you're at peace, Jenny.

    RIP

    To all the Broken family,

    As you may have noticed, my forum activity around the interweb is nearly nil these days. Well, I was at VEF earlier today looking through a technical discussion thread, and I recall thinking it was odd that Jenny hadn't posted any replies. So, needless to say I did a bit off searching there, only to learn of this devastating news.

    Jenny was the perfect balance of class and sass, exactly what we all need in our lives. She will be greatly missed by so many, but her spirit will live on through all those she touched.

    Kind regards, and best wishes to all.
