My heart is broken! Her loss has rock me to the core, as it is unimagineable! She was one of my first friends in childhood and we have remained friends. She was beautiful, smart, cultured, kind and truly a lovely person. She adored Lucas and spoke of him often. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you at this most devastating time! Although I am unable to attend the visitation, please know that all of her Lakeroad, and Northern friends will plan something in Sarnia to celebrate her life.

Sending love to the Beattie family. Jennifer was a beautiful soul and a wonderful friend during high school and beyond. I have many fond memories of Jennifer -- her stories, her humour, her kindness -- and I am truly saddened by this news.

I am terribly saddened by the loss of Jennifer, a dear friend. We met in high school, and our friendship grew even closer when she moved to Taiwan after volunteering at an orphanage in India. I have never known a more kind-hearted, gentle, and luminous person as her. My heart goes out to Lucas, Jane, Matt, and the other members of her family. She will never be forgotten.

I am so sorry to hear of the tragic loss. My memories of her growing up in Sarnia are some of the best I have; she and I were in class together virtually every year, and she kept me smiling all the time. Those were awkward years, but she was such a strong presence. My sincere condolences to the whole family.

Dear Bryan and Marilyn,
Our heart cries for you, Lucas, Jane and Matthew for the sudden and tragic loss of Jennifer. Our prayers are with you all and let me share this one from 'Abdul-Baha. Lord, O Thou Whose mercy hath encompassed all, Whose forgiveness is transcendent, Whose bounty is sublime, Whose pardon and generosity are all-embracing, and the lights of Whose forgiveness are diffused throughout the world! O Lord of Glory! I entreat Thee, fervently and tearfully, to cast upon Thy handmaiden who hath ascended unto Thee the glances of the eye of Thy mercy. Robe her in the mantle of Thy grace, bright with the ornaments of the celestial Paradise, and, sheltering her beneath the tree of Thy oneness, illumine her face with the lights of Thy mercy and compassion.
"Bestow upon Thy heavenly handmaiden, O God, the holy fragrances born of the spirit of Thy forgiveness. Cause her to dwell in a blissful abode, heal her griefs with the balm of Thy reunion, and, in accordance with Thy will, grant her admission to Thy holy Paradise. Let the angels of Thy loving-kindness descend successively upon her, and shelter her beneath Thy blessed Tree. Thou art, verily, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Generous, the All-Bountiful."
Sorrowfully, Gordon and Josy Britton

I only ever met Jen a few times but my children Abbey and Caileigh grew to know and love her and in a very short time spoke so lovingly about the time they spent with her. Helping her cook, garden and arts and crafts at her table. I extend my sympathy to her son and parents.

We are all sad to hear about the loss of Jennifer. She was a wonderful person with a really big heart and adored her son Lucas! I enjoyed her company at many school plays, bbqs and even the parent/teacher meetings! We will always have good memories of Jennifer!
