    Oh Jenni, my haunted house, giant inflatable, onesie loving friend. It has taken me days to find the right words, and I’m still not sure they’re right. We were supposed to grow into old ladies together, living it up at the retirement center on our super sweet scooters that Aaron was going to build us, but I guess the universe had other plans. You always had a way of seeing the silver linings in everything and I’ll be forever grateful of our friendship. Owen, your mom was so proud of you and loved you so very much, please don’t ever forget that! To you and the rest of the family, my heart aches for all of you. Jenni was a strong, beautiful soul. Family was absolutely everything to her, and she was strong and beautiful because of the strong, beautiful family she had around her. I hope you can find peace in knowing that even though Jenni’s time here was shorter than we all had hoped, the impression she left on us, and many others, was everlasting. Jenni, thank you for the time we did have, and meet us when we get there, ok? Sending all our love and prayers to the Markey and Flaherty families. Rachael & Aaron Hinkle

    Dear Patty and Kevin, Our kids became siblings 26 years ago and love each other like true brothers and sisters; which made it easy for me to feel the same. My heart is broken for you two, Owen, Ryan and Carrie. I loved Jenni and I know my kids feel the loss of a sister. My prayers continue for all of you. We will miss Jenni everyday. She was beautiful, loving, fun and really was a sister thru and thru to my kids. I feel blessed that our families joined together. Prayers for your sweet girl and all who must wait to see her again in God’s kingdom. Love, Barb & Burt

    My deepest condolences to the family.
    Jenni has been my buddy and my friend for quite some time. She has helped me through the good times and especially the bad times, more than she realized. It’s true that you really don’t know what you have until you lose it. We all have lost an amazing young lady, mother, daughter, and friend. I will truly miss her.
    Rest In Peace my friend.


    Kevin, Patricia & Family,
