The report I read said she and male friend had parted because she wanted to return to the car and heRead More had supposedly decided to keep hiking. Her father is the one who reported her missing. I haven't read much about his whereabouts in all this.

Yes, odd to me that he'd continue on in the dark without her, and just how did he get home? Her carRead More was left there and her dog made it back without her. Did her "male friend" not get alarmed that she didn't come back? Why did so much time go by before reporting her missing?

Their seems to be some unanswered questions on her death that need to be answered. I find it hardRead More to believe that two women could die a couple of weeks apart in the same area as a coincidence. Let's hope they find answers here...

Mike was always thoughtful, kind, and real. He was a tremendous asset to our community and he willRead More be missed. Mike's warmth, humor and intelligence have affected so many of us, and he will live in the hearts and memories of so many of us.

Mike was a good guy. Always wanted to do good for Novato. Was on so many commissions and committees,Read More yet was never afraid to get out and get his hands dirty cleaning up after some public event or another. A real small town community leader. We'll really miss his humor too.

Nice guy, I helped him with some signs. I always saw people stopping and chatting with him, usuallyRead More ended with a hug as they walked away. RIP, sir.

We would see Frank almost everyday as we walked by his store. Always a friendly smile and 'hello'.Read More We will miss him.

This is always such an unfair unecessary tragedy to me; a lovely young man w/ wife, and kids beingRead More beaten by this horrible disease. Life is not fair, and my heart goes out to his wife and those children. I am sad enough about Andy Lopez's tragedy, then this. This little online paper is my morning time reading - wish it would post some happier topics to uplift our sad violent world. My ex father in law, long deceased from this cancer too once said to me as a young early 20 something, "Baby.. the good die young.." he'd lost his wife to an inoperable brain tumor that has spread after a mastectomy then it got him right after retirement from same job he worked for over 35 yrs; he never got to enjoy his golden years for very long; just a year or so, had planted a little garden, moved out of the city, to grow things, and had a neat as a pin little cottagey rental he adored. So when this evil disease takes down a young man w/ a family and little ones, it's horrible, like that awful Alzheimer destroying one's life rendering them to a degrading hopeless helplessness destroying their dignity and is not curable, while creating so much suffering for the family, the one's that care; then I wonder, what about the poor souls who get left to die alone and are abandoned by family, because they think the suffering patient can't recognize them anyway. It's so so sad.

Jennifer was my boss for several years. She was incredible, intelligent, kind, and competent, anRead More inspiration. I will miss her very much.

James does Tae Kwon Do with my kids and I enjoyed getting to know Jennifer during their lessons. WeRead More discussed books, our family lives and a million other subjects. She gave me the website to her blog and I had no idea until i read it, that she was battling cancer. She always had a smile for me and we would laugh as our sons quickly changed their tae kwon do outfits to baseball uniforms and off we'd go to their little league games. I'll miss her presence and remember her loving energy.

Conocí a jennifer, en Granada, España. Ella me dio su amistad enseguida, de una formaRead More muy natural, nos gustaba pasear por el precioso barrio del Albayzín con vistas a la Alhambra. Alquiló un pequeño apartamento y allí pasamos buenos ratos, sensatas en un minúsculo balcón que en el que solo cabían las dos patas traseras de la silla.Me quedo con su luz, su amor por la vida tan grande y contagioso, su sentido del humor. Quiero, a pesar de no haberles conocido ni a su marido, ni a su hijo, darles mucha fuerza, que pasen este dolor, pero que luego sonrían, sean felices. Estoy segura de que ese era un deseo muy fuerte en Jennifer. Cuando supe lo que había pasado, le escribí este poema: Era tan blanca la luz, en las manos abiertas de tus ojos. Tan blanca era... que alejaba yo, la consumación del adiós. Un vértigo de cobre me decía, un vértigo me hablaba... me dejaba los labios cubiertos de zozobra, y el costado arañadamente herido, arañadamente extraño. Sin querer decir una palabra, sin querer decir ausencia. Era tan blanca tu luz, tan blanca era.... Que esa luz nos de mucha fuerza, me gustaría recibir información sobre ella, su familia, su hijo. Mi apoyo lo tienen, y mi cariño desde España. Ana Santaella pahlén
