    I cannot attend the funeral at the church, but I want the whole family to know my heart and prayers are with them all. I personally know her whole family from the time I was a child, at least I feel I was a child at the time. I knew her well and knew what a wonderful person she was and I know how much everyone will miss her .Please know that even though I cannot be there I will be thinking of you all during the church services. Love you all, Jennifer (Beil) Hetrick.
