Jennifer and I were friends from grade school through high school. I was lucky to live in a neighborhood with so many kids my age just a block or two away: Jennifer Modory, Bebe Grotsky, Nancy Thompson, Hope Schmerling, Bobbie Dorfman, Marcy Oncken -- not to mention all those who went to the Catholic schools. Many fond memories of Jennifer.

I lived two doors down from Jennifer and we spent many hours together. She was such a creative, artistic, and talented person. She truly will be missed. It was so nice seeing "neighborhood names" in Donna's post. Miss those times!

Jennifer and I were in the same section all through Junior High at Lincoln. She was so bright and such a serious student and my greatest competitor academically. She had the most beautiful handwriting that i tried my best to emulate and her skill at the piano was another thing I envied. It wasn't until High School that I got to know the funloving, sweet side of her. Rest in peace dear Jenny!
