    I met Jill and her Brother Dan when I was a Sophomore at HCHS and they were in the Incoming Freshman Class. Jill was a very Beautiful and also a very Sweet Young Lady in High School and also very friendly as well. I considered her a good friend and it was always a great Pleasure whenever she was around. God Be with her Family as they go through this grieving Process.
