  1. I was privileged to serve on the Board of the UU church here in Woodstock when Jennifer served as our interim minister. She was a bright, shining light and helped our congregation move forward into our new church building. She was a friendly warm presence as well s being very intelligent and funny. She will be missed by me and many others in our congregation.

  2. For all who shared a moment with Rev. Slade and to all who have been touched by her presence, permit me to share a thought with you.

    The DEATH of a loved one can never be explained. The empty, void, spaceless feelings prevail forever. Nothing or no one can fill the place in one’s life.

    The eternal question “Why?” rings soundlessly within one’s mind. It is the never answered question. Physical, medical and other defined sciences provide no answer.

    Three primary virtues spring-forth from the Death-Moment: Hope, Joy and Courage.

    Hope provides the vision to move
    forward. It lets strength fill one’s
    being. It lets one see beyond the

    Joy fills the mind with peaceful
    memories; recalling daily the times

    For Courage, no one has described it
    better than Maya Angelou, “Courage
    is the most important of allvirtues.
    Because if you haven’t courage, you
    may not have an opportunity to use
    any of the others.”

    With the most focused energypossible,
    I share these thoughts with you.

    John Whitley, Williamsburg UU

  3. My wife and I attend the UU church in Newport News, VA and had the privilege of meeting Jennifer and hearing her speak at a recent service there. I remember that we felt both inspired and moved by her message and felt very loved and by and connected to her as she spoke. It is a sad thing to have lost her and pause for thought as to the ravages of depressive illness…
