I am so sorry to hear about Jill. She was my visiting teacher partner when our family lived in the West Jordan 35th ward. I always enjoyed going with her to visit our sisters. She was always fun to be with and she had a wonderful testimony of the Gospel. I know that we will see her again, that this is not the end. May all of your family be comforted at this time. You had a wonderful mom, wife, grandmother and gr-grandmother and friend.
