  1. Today will be difficult for everyone. May God keep you in His loving arms. Remember to laugh like Aunt Jeanetta and eat a little chicken for her. Love all of you!

  2. I appreciated Jeanetta giving me the opportunity to work with her at Jeanetta’s Beauty Salon! She was a lot of fun to work for! So sorry for the loss of your Mom and Grandma, Wanda Lambert

  3. My sympathy to Jeanetta’s family. My your memories of her bring smiles to your faces and hearts. May God’s peace surround all of you.

  4. Jeanette always had a kind word. Every time she saw me she asked how my mom was doing. The last time I saw her she said come here. She gave me a big hug because my mom had passed. She then patted me on the face and said that’s for you.
