    Jill was always the “fun” behind TAB events. She would go to meeting and convention sites well in advance and make preparations that created a “positive and enjoyable atmosphere” for the event. She and Donny were a perfect couple. Donny brought his guitar, and made the TAB activities even better. And Jill really knew broadcast regulations. The majority of times I called with a question about “political” or “legal” issues, she had the answer on the tip of her tongue. Jill Green was an amazing broadcast leader and a wonderful caring person, who will be missed by all.

    Jill was a classmate of mine at Isaac Litton High. My memories of her is of a perpetual smile, a bright outlook and a delightful person to be around. May God’s blessings of comfort and peace be upon each of her family members

    I went to church with Jill at Hobson Methodist Church, knew Beth her sister who was an incredible human being in her own right. Jill and i cheered together at Litton but beyond that her personality, her incredible friendliness, kindness, beauty, love for all was so special that it is hard to describe. I loved her and will never forget her, and she was one he** of a dancer among other things lol, I love you Jill and Donny was a very lucky man!!!

    For Donny and Family:

    We are sad that you’re going through this painful experience.

    Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things we can possibly go through. And grieving is nothing but a normal reaction to this. Although it’s difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, looking back in memory May help comfort you tomorrow.

    Life is eternal, and love is immortal, and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing but the limit of our sight.

    For Jill:

    A poem by G.K. Chesterton

    “Chattering finch and water-fly
    Are not merrier than I;
    Here among the flowers I lie
    Laughing everlastingly.
    No: I May not tell the best;
    Surely, friends, I might have guessed
    Death was but the good King’s jest,
    It was hid so carefully.”

    I’m so saddened by the passing of Jill. She absolutely had the most electric smile ever. She could always make me cry with laughter. Jill had so many special gifts. Heaven is surely roaring with laughter now.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you Donnie, Mandy and Kerry. She will be dearly missed.
