She was one of only two shipmates I had ever met IRL. She was passing through town and came to my parish on a Sunday morning to hear me preach.

She had long struck me as one of those about whom Augustine spoke so eloquently when he said our souls are restless until they rest in God. Perhaps that was why she found this place of unrest so congenial.

I just can't believe it. I had dinner with her (and JB and Motherboard) some time ago when I was in New Mexico, and she was very charming and witty and kind. They all drove me home (it was dark and my night vision is very bad), with Jen driving me in my little pickup truck, and we chatted on the way. She was an amazing person who had done some amazing things.

Then, last year when I was all worried about the stray cat who adopted us, she was very helpful, gave great advice, got her daughter (a veteran stray-cat saver) to email me with advice, and followed up to make sure everything was going well.

I don't know what horrible demons drove her to this, but there was on balance much more kindness and compassion than hatred in her, I am quite sure.

[Votive] Lord have mercy. I pray for peace and healing for all the survivors. And may Jen rest in peace.

What everyone said. Praying particularly for her friends and family as I know from first hand experience what suicide can do to a family.

I wish she had come to Waving not Drowning for support. We can't stop anyone committing suicide, or even change their feelings, but we can be a safe place to express them and for others to say they know how it is.

I'm sick at heart. She was such a delightful person with a snarky sense of humor that was even nastier than mine.

And she was a liturgist as well. I remember quarreling with her at the Colorado Shipmeet about how truly awful RC liturgy was; I found myself defending it.

I remember her humor. I remember the way her eyes would twinkle just before she said something outrageously inappropriate that made everybody laugh until they were sick.

She bought me a bottle of GIN.

She was a good person, and I am devastated that the darkness overwhelmed her. + May the Light of Christ pierce that darkness and + guide her into the Presence of the Almighty, and may she + find the courage to let her Lord love her.

This is so shocking and sad. Jennifer was such a neat and special person, and I feel privileged to call her my friend.

We met at the 2003 Colorado International meet, and found out almost immediately that we had a lot of things in common. She had invited me to Even Tinier Town, where a lot of music would have been played.

Our lives have been richer because of Jennifer.

Rest in peace, dear lady. Indeed you are a sheep (3) of His flock.

Jennifer was one of the Shipmates I met on my sojourn in New York. She was so kind and welcoming.

So shocked to read this, may she find the peace that passes all understanding.

Acknowledge, we, humbly beseech thee, O Lord, a sheep of thine own fold, a lamb of thine own flock, a sinner of thine own redeeming. Receive her into the arms of thy mercy, into the blessed rest of everlasting peace, and into the glorious company of the saints in light.

Oh good grief.I saw 'jlg' and thought this will be good. It isn't. It's so tragic. Thoughts and prayers with her family for whom the last few days must have been so hard.

We don't know what happens to affect the decisions a person makes. May God's spirit of peace rest with those whose minds are in turmoil.

I'm in shock. Like others who have already posted, I too would stop and read anything jlg wrote. I met her once IRL when she came to a cookout Shipmeet we had in our area. She seemed like a smart, down-to-earth, interesting person.
I am so sorry for her family and friends, and for what she must have been suffering.
Rest in peace now, Jen.

We met Jen eight years ago in Colorado and she was our housemate. So witty, intelligent and kind was she. We last saw her in Colorado at another shipmeet. We remember her at the end of the cattle drive where she got terribly sunburned but was still undaunted.

RIP, old friend. [Votive]

I always enjoyed jen, and had hoped to meet her irl when in her neck of the woods 18 months ago. Sadly it didn't happen. May she now be embraced in the Christlight that was so often unclear to her ...

As Jack the Lass said on the missing shippies thread, her slighty freaky avatar was sheer delight. I'll miss her.

Flabbergasted. Bewildered. Astonished.

I told myself I wouldn't even open the thread. I saw "jlg" there on All Saints' first page, and I told myself I reject it, I refuse it, it can't be good. And I looked, and it wasn't.

She's in the hands of the perfect, loving God now, which is the place to be. No one knows her so well as the Lord, not even Jen herself. And no one loves her so well as the Lord.

What I hope for now is that the people close to her, who were hurt, can heal without a single negative emotion trapped in the scars. That's what I pray for.
