The text reads:

Jennifer Ellen Futrell

29, died Saturday, October 4, 2008

She is survived by her mother, Barbara Hedspeth; father, James Futrell; sister, Elizabeth Futrell; step mother, Katherine Futrell; grandparents, Joyce Pearce, of Poplar Bluff, MO and Faye Futrell and great-grandmother Opal Evitts, both of Paducah, KY. Also Surviving are the many, many dear friends in her "chosen" extended family.

An avid musician, writer, chef, bicyclist, activist and organizer in Louisville's vibrant alternative arts community, Jennifer (Jen, to her friends) was a passionate supporter of her city.

She talked and walked a unique path through life, touching many and always allowing herself to be changed and nurtured by others.

The victim of a tragic accident, her last act of giving, aside from the cherished memories of her brief but significant life, was the gift of life to others through the Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates Program.

Donations in lieu of other expressions of sympathy may be made to Seeds of Peace or Safe Streets Louisville.

"Rest well, our sweet warrior child. You were and always will be loved and cherished."

We had the Third Annual J Cecil Jarvis Memorial Ride, and it was good to have so many people who cared about him come together and respect/honor his memory:
