I knew Jennifer Ogden in high school. She was always a smiling, happy person and always made everyone around her smile. I have a lot of good memories of her. May she rest in peace.

Ben - This story is about grief and saying goodbye to a wonderful human being. Why don't you crawl into the hole from which you emerged you nasty little troll.

I had Ms Ogden twice when she worked at Wading River Elementary. I was in her very first class EVER in kindergarten from 1999-2000 then I had her again when she moved up to second grade in 2001-2002. I went to her wedding. I have pictures of Magic, the dog. I first knew her as Ms Ogden, then after the wedding i was the first student to adapt to the name change. She died on a Friday. That EXACT DAY I went with my mom to pick up a younger brother at the Elementary school. I was in my uniform -- I attend Mercy High School-- and I wanted her to see me in it. As soon as I said 'Mrs Mager' I remembered she had moved down to kindergarten, in Briarcliffe. And I knew why. In second grade, you couldnt sing in the classroom. But the kids in kindergarten loved to hear her voice. She had an amazing voice. And she wanted to be able to sing for her students. Because thats the kind of person she was. She loved us, her students, more than anything. And we knew that every time we saw her smile. I remember once, in second grade, I got into a fight with her because I swore the Sun was 99 miles from Venus. She won. Because the Sun was actually 99 MILLION miles from Venus. She laughed. But not a condescending laugh, a loving one. I still have the Pooh Bear ornament she gave me for Christmas 10 years ago. I think of her everyday and when I cry, I know I shouldn't because there was no room for tears in her life. Just love and laughter. She said that to me.
