    Sweet precious child. Auburn, you had a way of always making others smile. Funny and caring with a big heart. The light in your mothers eyes. You will be missed by so many, young and old, you touched so many lives in your too short life. I know you are happy now fishing with your Pa and laughing with Brandon.

    I love you Auburn

  16. Jack and Sandra Netherland

    Lisa and husband and Jimmy and family, There is no way to even begin to tell you how precious your whole family has always been to our family. The closeness that was shared by Auburn and Patrick was and is precious that words could never even begin to make anyone understand. I can see Pa Jennings taking them now to the poolroom together. They were his boys. Auburn was a sweet inter soul young man with humor and a love for all man kind. God took him to young but we know he has a reason for all things.Please try to put your faith and trust in him to help you get through this. We are also so sorry for the loss of your step=son Lisa and this is a lot for the family to have to bear. know that we are here for you. Our hearts ache for you and if there is anything at all that Jack and I can do for anyone of us please don’t hesitate to call. We Love you all! In Christian Love, Jack and Sandra
