Jeanne was one of our residents but I have known her for many years. She and Edna were just classy ladies and they kept so many strong in the lord. She loved her family so much and when her memory was still with her she spoke to me and all of us about her love for them and how proud she was of all of them. She loved her husband and I know they are so glad to be back together. I know she is also glad to see her daughter now that they are both healed. She was a GREAT lady and will be missed by all.
