Beth and Shelley,
I was so sorry to hear of Jill's passing. It's been many years since I've been in Jill's company but like so many others, I remember her great wit (so prevalent in the Lacey family) and infectious laughter. You will miss her dearly but take comfort in your wonderful memories of happy times together. Sincere condolences to you and Jill's family.
