    I worked with Jenny and Carol Camp during my Senior year of high school at Adams Memorial Hospital in the Radiology Department. Jenny was extremely funny, so considerate, and a great mentor. I will always remember her laugh, her patience, her resolve when there was a medical emergency, and her genuine concern for the patients we worked with. A Beautiful person. Prayers to all of her family and friends.
