    For me, Jill was my rock. As a DIALOG'r, she was in a position to be the front line for so many tough issues. Everytime we chatted on the phone, I wanted to hear about life outside of work with family, friends, activities, etc. I will miss her smile...  more

    I met Jill in the summer of 1976 when our family had the good fortune to move to a house a few doors down from the Eaglesons. I was a year older than Jill but that didn’t seem to matter, soon we became fast friends.

    We spent summers playing Marco...  more

    I was part of Jill's TLTC family as a teenager. I will always remember her slightly mischievous smile, and her quiet, but fierce independence. Am thinking of her family, who I still remember with great fondness.
