Aunt Jeanette, you were always fun and had a beautiful smile! I have known you since I was 17 years old and have always considered you just as much my aunt as Ray’s aunt! After all these years, I never knew we had the same middle name! You will be greatly missed! Love you! Regina

Tim and Melissa, I think about our Mr. D's family often and was saddened today to read your Mom's obituary. I enjoyed seeing the photos of your beautiful family. Wishing you peace, love and strength in the coming days. Martha Smith

Losing a Mom..Grandmother..Great Grandmother is never easy. 😢 One of the things I loved about Jeanette was her laugh! You couldn’t help but laugh, too!😍 It seemed she often had a smile on her face. And I imagine she was smiling a few short days ago when she was reunited with her loved ones. ❤️ Thinking of you all and sending our love and prayers. ❤️🙏🏻❤️
