Jenny was a self-described quirky person with a joyfully wicked sense of humor. She was a natural storyteller, and she had diverse creative talents. I respected her intelligence and resilience. Above all else, she had a deep, abiding love for animals. The Rainbow Bridge is most certainly greeting her with quite the "welcome home" party.
