  1. What a great episode. I was so invested in Jenn Gavlin’s story I caught myself holding my breath. The language she uses is so beautiful. I am in complete awe of the beauty and strength of the story. A.maz.ing!

  2. I agree with Moloch. Jenn, I was so moved by your story and your courage. I couldn’t help but feel sad, too. May all the love, life and peace in the world accompany you as you move forward on this journey. I can only wish that I would handle myself like you if this happened to me. Hugs.

  3. Oh Jenn! I did know yet of course I did! Rest In Peace, my dear!
