    Heaven's newest angel is the most beautiful one... I love you Jen.

    Definately the most beautiful one.

    I say the toughest one :)

    I was so blessed to have you as my friend.

    You inspired me, not because of your fight with cancer, but because of your fight to find real happiness, to find real love.

    And oh my God Jen, you found them, you really did.

    So many discussions about Greg, and about your feelings for him, and your complete and utter belief that he was THE one, and how lucky you were to have found him.

    I am so happy that I got to be a part of your life, even in such a small way.

    you are always and forever my Voo.

    x's to the o.

    Hugs to the family.

    I'm a fellow breast cancer sister and I have been following this blog for almost two years.

    I am stunned by today's post and have tears in my eyes.

    Ah, my sweet Vivo....be at peace and know that you are loved.


    I am so very sorry.

    I have been honored to be a regular reader of this blog, because of the lovely soul and great heart that was revealed in the elegant writing.


    I, too, am stunned to hear this news. Hugs and love to you Greg, as well as to Jen's family. I was lucky enough to know Jen, and I feel truly blessed to have called her a friend - even though we never were able to meet in person. (And here I was hoping to be able to meet her when I was in Scottsdale this past week..) I am so saddened to hear this news, and I am truly sorry that her light was extinguished so soon.

    stunned and saddend. my life was better, and i am a better person for having known you. its seems so long ago since i first met you at umass. i have missed you often over the years. i miss you today and will miss you every day. truly at a loss for words. rich d.

    I am absolutely heartbroken. Jen was a true inspiration to so many of us that work for the Breast Cancer 3-Day. She will be missed and we will honor her always. Greg, you are in our thoughts and we are here if you need us. Getting to work with you both on interviews and the camp show speech was truly a highlight in my season and you've impacted me more than I can express.

    Oh my dearest... I was so lucky and blessed to have known you through your words these past few years. You fought so hard, and you will always be an inspiration to me. Love forever and always. **HUGS!!**

    you were (and still are) an inspiration to many. your spirit will be alive in all of us. i'm honoured to be a reader of your beautiful words.

    We knew Jen in her Boston days at the Cactus Club. Matt and I have tons of fond memories of her, but the one thing we have always (and will forever) say about her is that she is one of the kindest, sweetest human beings I have ever come to know. We're so saddened by her loss and wish we'd taken the time in the last few years to keep in touch with her. Our thoughts are with you, Greg.

    Matt and Susan Bergeron

    I just wanted to say that I am so sorry to hear this news. I've been absent from this blog for awhile and am really stunned and saddened at the moment. Jen had an amazing spirit. We never met in person but were friends online and she truly helped me through some hard times. I will miss her and always regret that we never got to meet face to face. Thanks, Greg, for all that you gave her. Jen, you are an incredible person with remarkable courage and strength. You will be very missed but I'm so happy you found the love and happiness you were looking for in your too short life.

    I placed my comment in the wrong area. Not unusual for me. Here is what I said. You are missed by many. And, you have inspired many, many more. Especially my daughter, carrot face's mom.

    I miss you so much my friend. Some days you consume so many of my thoughts. Then some days you sneak up on me and I hear your voice, or a memory and a smile flashes into my mind.
