    Dear Burchett Family,

    I am so sorry to hear of this unexpected loss. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Jen was in my class of 95 at Malvern High. She had a big heart and an amazing laugh. When I was deployed in 2009 – 2010, Jen and I talked a lot in FB Messages about life. It really meant a lot to me… She really cared a bout people, and loved her family more than anything!. My heart goes out to all of you after this sudden loss. You’re all in my thoughts and prayers.
