    I have been trying to find Jennifer for several years and finally stumbled upon this.....I am truly heartbroken and words cannot express my sympathy to Jennifer and to her family. She and I were very close friends during our teenage years in Liberty, NC. We lost touch once she moved to her grandmother's in Wilmington. I regret deeply not staying in touch with her. She was one of my very best friends and had a beautiful soul. I missed and will miss her so very much. I had no idea that she even had a daughter. She always did want children and it makes me so happy that she has left a mark on this world. I love you Jennifer and I will always cherish the moments that you and I shared together. I am so sorry. Love, Micah
