My deepest sympathies are with her family. God please watch over this family in a time of need and give them strength to heal. Jill was a very nice a polite young lady I knew her for years as she was very well known at Baseball For Youth. She was my score keeper for many years also a friend I gained. Heaven has gained a wonderful angel.

My generation called it the strong-willed child. Jill was a little girl with a fighting, strong spirit. And she needed that fighting spirit to face the many health challenges she had; many trips to the hospital, several surgeries, and some long hospital stays until she was ready to go back home. I will remember Jill for her courage in her lifelong health struggles. My thoughts and love go out to Marianne and Bobbi, who lovingly went through those struggles with her. May God comfort and keep you.
