  1. All of our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Jill.

  2. Maria Rivero says:

    Jill touched many lives in so many ways. She was a peaceful happy person and her soul will live on with all of us. May God have a special place for her in heaven. Jill, you will always be remembered. Maria

  3. Jill is a kind and generous person. I have good memories of her, especially when she visited me in England, where Jill conquered driving on the left side and finding the nearest shopping. Who could forget her favorite cat, Yoda. I will remember Jill always and am sorry she has left us too soon.

  4. Rita Raymond says:

    Jill was one of my dearest friends, and saw me though a lot of changes. I will always be grateful to her for the times she gave me a good talking to when I was down in the dumps and feeling sorry for myself. We were daily friends, where a day didn’t pass without at least one phone call.

    We shared a love of music, especially Don Henley. We used to listen to the “End of The Innocence” album for hours. I’ll not forget the many concerts we attended, the golf lessons we took together, and the trips to Palm Springs and Big Bear. There were many nights of going out dancing. I remember her habit of changing her clothes and shoes and later, wigs or hats a million times before we left for an evening out. We had fun at many finance conferences together.

    I remember her introducing me to her family, especially a trip to Texas to visit a very pregnant Holly and Bill. I remember when she met Scott and her joy at finding her life partner. I will also remember her sharing my joy as I met and married my husband. While she hated the dress, she still agreed to be a bridesmaid in our wedding.

    While we were not in as frequent touch in the past few years, she will always have a special place in my heart.

    I’ll miss you Jill, but I know you are free of suffering and are now at peace.

  5. You will be missed Jill.
