I am a staff member at the Louis T Graves Memorial Library in Kennebunkport, and I want to offer my deepest sympathy to Jen's family, particularly her sons and parents. She spoke lovingly about you all. In the past month, Jen was in the library twice, and both times we talked about books, family, pets and so much more. It was not unusual for us to spend up to 30 minutes or more just talking; Jen was so easy to talk with, always smiling and upbeat. I told her I liked her red handbag and we talked about shopping at Mardens. I will miss her and remember her.

Jennefer loved running the Valet company. She loved the people who came by she had many who would come by just to say hi to her.
She was an amazing person and valet manager but more than that she was one of my closest friends. She will be missed greatly she will never know the impact she made on so many people with her smile and caring heart. On behalf of Myself, (The owner of Valet 4 ME) and all her coworkers who will miss her dearly. Our deepest condolences to Alan and Sandy and her whole family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time.

I was saddened by he news of Jennifer's passing when I stumbled upon it today while looking at Kennebunk news stories online. Jennifer was, and will always remain, a special person in my memories. Although we've lost touch over the many years, I still think of her fondly, so full of life and happiness. We worked together at the Hennessey House restaurant way back in the mid 1980's and stumbled across each other from time to time for the next 10 years or so. She always brightened my day when ever we did run into each other. We attended a friends' wedding in Pennsylvania together and even went skiing in Utah several years later. I will miss her smile and warm heart. Condolences to the family and especially her two sons; their mom was a special person in my memory!
