Jennifer Gonzales, Christine Loeber and Jennifer Golick: may they rest in peace. All three of these intelligent, talented and warmhearted women had a passion for helping our veterans. They have been described as wonderful people who <i>"lived their lives selflessly to serve others"</i>. They brought energy, vitality, and personality to their jobs.
All were in the prime of their life and one of them, Jennifer Gonzales, was newly married and pregnant with her first child. I'm in Southern Cal now but hope to make a small detour to the Yountville Veterans Home and leave some flowers on my way back to the northwest. Not that flowers will help. It did not help after Marjorie Stoneman Douglas and did not help after Sandy Hook, and neither did it help at Columbine nor any of the other mass murders.
