    oh no. I only knew her through our respective dogs, as mr Bean and my little one would often play  when we were out for a walk. I will miss seeing her and mr. Bean.   What is the fate of mr. Bean? I hope he will go to someone as kind as she seemed be.

      Did anyone reply to you about Mr. Bean. We have an open home for him.  We will be at the memorial @tullys and hope to learn more.

        We will be looking for his fore ever home with someone who will take him for his daily visit to the beach.  He has a dental appt on the 26th so after that. We want him to be in excellent health. He needs a lap. He was Jennifer’s emotional support for 12 years. He loved her so much. With time he will be a daily comfort for an old acquaintance.

    I did not have the opportunity to know Jennifer, but she always had a ready smile when we passed and said “Hi”. Her little dog is so cute and well behaved, and I’m sure he will miss her dreadfully. It will be sad to not see them around Alki anymore. Good wishes for healing to her family and friends.

    So sorry to hear of Jennifer’s passing.  I attended her painting classes at Alki, and she was at our home for various holiday gatherings.  Prayers and sympathy for her family and friends.
