David & Family,

My deepest sympathies for the loss of Jennifer. I got to know Jennifer through our training class at Fish HQ in St. Louis during October, 2010. She was a fun person to be around and will be sadly missed by myself, the other members of our October, 2010, class, as well as the rest of the Fish Window Cleaning family.

Dear David and Family, words can not express the feeling we all have for missing Jennifer. I spoke with her few times last week and did not realize how seriously ill she was. May God give you the strength and patience to get by day by day and help you to soon begin the healing process of losing a loved one so close.

Hello David & Family,

My deepest sympathy to you and your family on Jenny's passing. I learned the news today via The FISH site as I was about to enter completed cleaning work for the day. I immediately felt a heavy heart. Although I never met Jenny, I really enjoyed and appreciated the lengthy July phone conversation she and I shared about the FISH Window Cleaning business just prior to Convention. Also, it was a real pleasure meeting and sharing time with you at the Convention in St. Louis.

My thoughts and prayers to you and your family during this difficult time.

Thinking of you,
Brad Dinkmeyer
