Memories from Carolina Beach
Liz, or maybe as I knew you as Laura Elizabeth...I was a friend of Jenny's back in 1988/89. I was her boyfriend. Please read on and let me know if this is who i think it is, and if not please let me know that as well. After you read you may understand.

You were just a little girl at that time I doubt you would remember me. I am from Carolina Beach, born and raised, and knew Jenny for an number of years before we started dating. I graduated from Hoggard HS in 87 and went to UNCG to study music. During the summer of 88 me and Jenny became close friends and dated for almost two years. We often watched you when Lisa and your Grandmother were at work and sometimes I would watch you by myself once Jenny got a job. Jenny and I broke up in 89 and unfourtunately it was not pretty. Of course what break up is pretty. Anyway, I did get a chance to talk to her just before joining the Navy and thanked her for helping me grow up even though she was much younger than I was.

I often thought of her and you for years after and wanted to reconnect one day. During my last tour in Iraq (2009) I found out that she had died from and close friend of hers growing up, Trish Horne. She and your mom were real good friends while growing up and Trish was a very big part of my life as well. It lead me to this site and I left the message signed Chris.

I thought about Jenny often and how she taught me to care about other people. My memories are filled with the love she shared and how much she loved you. There have been several people who have made a definite impact on my life and I try to memorialize them somehow or thank them. I never got that chance with Jenny.

I have three daughters now, twins (older) and and younger sister. I wanted to name the last Laura Elizabeth Dingler. My wife Anita knew why and she respected that however we have an Aunt who wanted a Paige. And because Trish's last name was once Paige, I agreed to Paige Elizabeth. The Elizabeth was for you. Her first name reminds me of the good times I had with Trish and Jenny and how you all made an impact on my life and the reason I am who I am today. Her middle name always reminds me of you and how I thought you might be.

I wish you the best in life and if you ever need anything reply to this message or look me up on Facebook. Search Christopher Dingler, I am in the Navy and live in Holly Ridge, NC.

RE: Confused

My name is Robin (Pittman) and your mom and I went to nursing school together. I have often wondered about Jenny's family...and especially the daughter she spoke so frequently of. Oh how she loved you!

I have such wonderful memories of her! Taking walks between classes, how she'd put her hair in such a hurry to get it out of her eyes, those big clunky sandles she'd wear, how she talked of loving and wanting children so badly, and how precious you were to her.

Once she brought carrot juice to school during some nutrition class we had and it was so great, she let me take the leftovers to my mom who was already a nurse at the hospital. Mom loved it too and started making it. We both still juice our own now (and add a Granny Smith apple like Jenny did). She and my mom got together a lot and shared recipes and such. We all thought so much of her! It is so hard to believe she's gone.

Tell me more about yourself and what you are doing...I'd love to know! And, if you like, I can transfer management of your mom's memorial here to you. You can add, edit, alter, add relatives...anything you like to it. I was unable to do anything more because I did not have any of that information.

I am excited to have heard from you! Please keep in touch!
