1.If you could tell us one thing, what would it be?
To love one another…..thanks to all who knew Jennifer and continue to be genuine friends.
2. What is your favorite memory of Jenn?
A life well lived. Jennifer’s favorite saying —- DIFFERENT – YET THE SAME. She was very successful in everything she did.
A phrase from one of her work associate’s letter, upon her passing, sums up what many individuals thought about her…..”she left a positive mark on dozens of people with whom she had only passing interactions….she was the kind of person whose kindness in small doses meant a lot, for many.”

The first 5k Race and Family Day. A beautiful tribute from Neal and the news media plus the Arlington community. Cooper won the first race in his age group.
4. What are people surprised to find out about you?
That I was a professional musician…….played the drums in combos and large dance bands.
