    To Anonymous re: "let's move on".....most of us are still grieving the loss of Jenna. I truly hope karma doesn't come back to and show you how long it takes to truly grieve a young, tragic loss as this. You move on to another blog post yet? Good. We are still shocked by this sudden and tragic loss. You were ready to move on two days later.....hmmmm. You must have a heart made of ice.
