Steve & I are heartbroken, but we have the blessed hope and know that Jill is with her Savior. She has graduated to heaven & we will see her again some day. Jill was such a passionate, generous person. She didn’t do anything halfway, she poured her whole heart & soul into whatever she did. She loved fiercely & complained little, even during her difficult health struggle. We are forever grateful to have had her as our ‘sister’, and we’ll always miss her. Much love - Steve & Teresa Marsden
