On Monday, June 30th, 2014, a full family began the rest of their lives without their beloved wife and mother. Jenny Groothuis' life was cut short on June 29th, but she is now dancing at the feet of her savior whom she loved more than anything.

Those who knew her will attest that her life needs no explanation, although her passing leaves journals full of "whys". This was an earth shattering event for family and friends who knew, and loved her, and even for those who had just heard about her. But the real ground zero is the Groothuis family. 15 youngsters lost their mother and a husband lost his soul mate.

‚ÄčLet's Stop, Pray and Support this family. 100% of funds raised will be used for direct family support.

Psalm 33:22

‚ÄčLet your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in you alone.

This is an incredible journey for the Groothuis family. We appreciate your support for them and the numerous ways people are helping them set a road for the future without a wife, mother and friend.
