    Very sorry for your loss. I hope you can find some comfort from the words at Psalms 147:3 that says; “He is healing the broken hearted ones and is binding up their painful spots.” God as the hearer of prayer will comfort you in the days ahead as you remember Mrs. Brewer. Please take a look at this brief video that gives us hope for the future.

    Jenny, A Special Lady who was part of our pool class at John A Logan. I did get to have a meal awhile back with her over at Jan and Bud Henson. I didn’t know that would be my last hug from her.

    Know you will miss her but she is with Jesus, a very good place!

    I so enjoyed my time with Jenny. Working with her at Kroger and then my time with her at Fifth Season, our last ear of weekly Bible Studies. I will miss her but knew two weeks ago, at our last time together, that she was failing fast. She was a wonderful, spiritual lady and I loved her dearly. I rest knowing she is at peace and free from pain. God bless all of you.

    Jenny was such a special friend to my parents, Tom and Elsie DeVardo. Their time together at Wader St. church was such a blessing and then for them to have been brought together yet again at Fifth Season was so good for my folks, especially Elsie. I too, always enjoyed visiting with Jenny. Her kind and gentle spirit was an encouragement to all who knew her. What comfort the family can lean on knowing Jenny is home now and no doubt heard, “Well done, thy good and faithful servant.”
