  10. I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Jill was a very special person. I was lucky to serve as one of her art teachers in high school, and as the school year had begun this year Jill was already in my thoughts before hearing this heartbreaking news. I was thinking of how wonderful an artist and how sweet a person she was. I still have some of her artwork that she left in my classroom. If you wish, please let me know at your convenience how and when it would be best to get it to you.

  11. I was in classes with Jill through middle a school and a bit in high school. We used to hang out outside of school over the years but drifted apart slowly over time. She was always such a great friend who was so talented, kind, and genuine.
