I am so sorry to hear of Jill’s death. Jill was a wonderful person and enjoyed life tremendously. I still see her picure with your Mother whenever I open the 1969 Edition of the Bomb. In searching for your address, I came upon the announcment for Jill. I hope that you get this note since it has been so long after Jill’s death. I woud like to reconnect with you and catch up. My sincerest condolences to Jill’s husband Jere. Iknow that he must be an exceptional person. Dave Kennedy

My name is Ariana and I’m 9 and I meet Jill when I was 4.  She would always talk to me in the store and she would always smile she was always nice to me I would always talk to her about things I did in girl scouts. I missed her and I’m sad that shes gone and I miss her a lot.
