"Heaven gained an angel, and we lost a beautiful soul," organizers of a GoFundMe campaign on behalf of Jennifer Kent wrote after she was killed on Bay Dale Drive in Annapolis on Saturday, May 6.

The organizers of the campaign highlighted Kent's appreciation and love of animals, as well as the way she touched the lives of those around her.

"Anyone that knew Jen, knew that she was a free spirit with a warm heart," Christina McDonough wrote. "She loved nature and beading necklaces.

"She loved walking barefoot with the earth or sand under her feet," the organizer continued. "She loved all animals and always had one of her animals with her for comfort. It could be a cat, a ferret baby or a snake in her hair." 

Kent leaves behind a "truly heartbroken mom, dad, brothers, and sisters," they wrote.
