Big Tom, Little Tom and Tim, I am so sorry to hear about Jenny. What a very special lady she was. I will never forget our times in Stephens Subdivision, visiting in Florida and then meeting up again in Anna. Jenny was the funniest person I have ever met and there will never be another Jenny Sniffen. Even though our families weren't in touch often, I thought of you guys often. Your whole family will be in my prayers. Love, Jami

Carolyn and Tim Sniffen

We heard the tragic news of Jenny's passing from a friend in Sidney. It wasn't that long ago that Jenny was sitting in our livingroom, telling her funny stories. Tim and I were married in Tom and Jenny's livingroom in Clearwater, and we will always have wonderful memories of Jenny. We pray for God to comfort all of you and give you the assurance that one day, you will be with Jenny in Heaven.

Cindy and Jim McFalls and family
