To the Family of Jeunita, Our hearts are heavy as we have lost one of our own Angels. I was a dialysis technician here at the Kidney Center on Baxter street( 1985-1989)I became a Secretary here after my husband became ill and past away.(1991-current) I was here when she started dialysis, here when she got her transplant, here when her kidney function returned and here when she came back to dialysis. What a spirit. When she spoke... You listened! She fought the good fight... She kept her head up even when she didn't feel like it. What a true LADY in every since of the word. She drove to work one day in this Beauitful Huge Van.. she wheeled that thing like it was a Volkswagon and parked on the dime in the parking space..I said Ms. Jeunita how somebody as little as you drive a van that big.. I would have hit everything in this parking lot. She looked at me and grinned and said one day Ima take you for a ride and show you how its done... She asked me a few times ? "You ready" No Mam I said, Im scared... Her faith never waivered. Our memories of her, here at the center will always be in our Hearts. Rest on Dear Friend, Rest on....
