  1. Dear Family. I am so sorry for your loss. I am happy to have known her. She was a sweetie.

  2. I began to know Jeanette when she was my patient in the Hospital. She was a sweet lady and had a great personality. Even though she was often quite sick she tried to keep her humor and we often had some giggles and laughs in her room. I am so sorry for your loss.

  3. Sorry to read about the loss of your Mom…may you find peace and comfort in the many memories. God bless !
