"Jenny & I became work colleagues, early in the 2000s, when Mary King's pharmacy took on packing medication for many Chch rest homes. We remained friends after her move to Nelson, albeit that my visits were only annual. Jenny's humorous view of life made her a pleasure to work with, and this attitude served her well as her illness increasingly made life difficult. She bore her troubles quietly & with dignity, always making light of her situation, still finding reasons to let fly with a hearty guffaw!. Saddened now, as all who knew her are, there is a little comfort that Jenny's trials now are over. My heartfelt condolences to Chris, Susan & Family on your loss of a sunny family member, dearest Jenny". Kind regards, Viv Browne
