  5. Dear Dear Jenna, I have prayed for you for so long and just know that you were loved and prayed for by many and now we are all praying for your family to get through this very hard time. Rest in peace and know that God is watching over you family for you.

  6. Dear Jenna- I never met u, but I’ve heard and seen alot of pics and heard ALOT of remarkable stories of your couragous fight! I myself was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Unfortunately you didn’t have the luck that I had :o(!! I consider myself a miracle guy! I’m really not supposed to be here. To this day when my friends and I get together, we ALWAYS toast to me not being dead! What Darlene and Shawn have done for u Is unbelievable!!
    Much Love, Gregg Chisholm

  7. Dear sweet Jenna,
    Although I never knew you, I followed your journey of hope which I beleive was your legacy you left to all you knew to make them better people. To not take one single day for granted, and that what is materials???? NOTHING if you don’t have your health. It must be so hard for your best girlfriends to say good-bye to you at such a young age when you all think you are so in-destrutable. Not to mention your parents, all of them. Although they all are in so much pain, almost to much to start each day, I know that each day they will grow stonger, to carry on in your name….I know that you are in a far better place but miss your family and friends sooooo much and do not want them to suffer. Just bring them the strength, each day to carry on.
    God Bless you Miss Jenna Lang …peace be with you.

  11. hello love face!
    i really hate that i missed your memorial service in new york, but with school and everything i couldn’t go.
    i miss you so much, everyday.
    i think about you all the time.
    whenever i have a problem or an obstacle to overcome i always think what would jenna do?
    your an inspiration to me and truly were my best friend.
    i cherish all the memories i had with you and i wont ever forget them.
    the other day i found an old pair of jeans i have that had a huge rip in them. when andrea asked me how i ripped them i told her about how me,you and brit were going to party at dillons one night and you slipped before getting into the car and i laughed and you told me karma was going to come back and bite me in the ass so when i got in the car my pants ripped. ha i loved you so much for that. i even wore the pants all night with no care just cause you told me it didn’t matter.
    its been hard for me lately and i broke down yesterday and all i wanted to do was go and visit you.
    but i know that no matter what you will always be with me.
    i love you so much jenna brooke lang.
    forever and always your best friend

  16. I can’t imagine how hard it would be to lose a child, l just lost my mother in Aug/09 and thats hard enough. l remember seeing Jenna at the youth center a few times and she was very genuine and pleasant, GOD be with You all during this difficult time. Chris MacDonald.

  17. I didn’t know you but through your mom I grew to love you. Your strength and stride was so wonderful to watch and read about you it was amazing. You will be missed.

  18. I feel as though I’ve lost a friend although we’d never met.I followed Jenna’s journey with prayers in my heart in hopeds that we may keep her with us.
    Alas ,the time came when our Lord needed her more than we.
    She has a much bigger agenda before her now,and she will be kept safe and unharmed under His wing.
    I am not surprised that someone as beautiful in spirit as Jenna has been chosen as his perfect Angel,to lead us works in progress,to be diligent,
    courageous and loving.
    Share in her spirit and walk in her footsteps,for she now knows the way.
    Thank you Jenna

  19. i know i didnt really know Jenna that well, but she was a very good person, and a great friend to many. You will be dearly missed, and nobody will ever forget about you. For everyone that did know her really well, my deepest sympathy goes to all, just remember stay strong and keep your head held high. Jenna will be watching down on you forever, and someday we will all meet her up there, she was way to young to go, rest in peace, you will never be forgotten Jenna Lang.

  20. I was so sorry to hear of your loss. It is always difficult to lose a loved one. I was not fortunate to have known Jenna personally but was able to follow her life through her mother and her website.
    A new life has begun for Jenna. One that is free from disease and pain. May your memories of her keep a smile upon your faces.

    xo Winnie

  24. It is always a tragedy to lose someone so young, so full of life, and so beautiful. I did not know Jenna well and yet it is through the prayers of others during this hard time that I have come to know a bit about her and the kind of person that she was. She was a fun-loving, genuine, and kindhearted person who will be deeply missed by those whom she touched during her lifetime. I continue to keep Jenna, her family, and friends in my prayers. God Bless and RIP

    ‘there’s always going to be another mountain, i’m always going to want to make it move, there is always going to be an uphill battle, sometimes we are going to have to lose, it’s not about how fast life gets there, it’s not about what’s waiting on the other side, it’s the climb.’
    gone far too soon.

  28. Light a candle for those we mourn.
    Into a new life they will be born.
    Do not look for them at the grave site.
    They are somewhere else radiating their beautiful light.

    They have gone to a new world where there is no darkness, no pain.
    Their light and essence will always remain.
    Light a candle for those who have left this mortal place.
    They are free to travel through time and space.

    When we think of them, they are near.
    When we sit in a beautiful garden. Their voices we hear.
    When we listen to a divine symphony,
    We close our eyes, their faces we see.
    Light a candle for they have not really gone.
    With each flickering flame, in your hearts they will always belong.

  29. Little beauty, you will never be forgotten. You have an amazing number of people who eat, sleep and drink you everyday. You made a mark on this world and are cherished every second of every day. RIP sweetheart. 🙂
