I received this idea from a friend in our chapter. I sent out a letter to Jennifer's friends and our family to send us an ornament, book or picture that reminded them somehow of Jennifer. We saved these until Christmas Eve and then we opened them, read the memories and decorated "Jennifer's Memory Tree". There were tears but there was also laughter as we heard some stories from her friends that we hadn't heard before. It helped me knowing that Jennifer was a part of our celebration and reminded me that she made such an impact on people's lives. I took pictures of each ornament and made a scrapbook with the card or letter that ornament represented so I can read them when I want to feel closer to her.
