    The victim of this crime was a wonderful woman, and mother to 3 young boys. Jennifer was full of life and love. She was a friend to all, sweet, caring, trusting, and very giving. She in no way would ever deserve such a death. Now there are 3 boys out there that no longer have a mother because of this man. The world and our lives will be a lonelier place without her it them. Please pray for her family that now have to say goodbye to our sister, friend, daughter, and mother.
