Dear Gary and Family,
Want to express my love and sympathy for the passing of Jeanne. I remember all the good times as neighbors on Lorna Street. Mom passed the same day and they are still neighbors at Sharon Memorial. My thoughts and prayers go out you and your family. Sure did enjoy seeing the pictures of all. What a big and beautiful family. God bless you and give you peace.

Dear Family,
I am sorry for your loss and pray you can feel her spirit all around you. I worked with Jeanne a few years ago and we provided her with a cctv to help her read. I believe she was still selling Avon at the time. If you want me to pick up the cctv (reading machine) I will be happy to and will share it with someone else who needs it.

Jeanne was a great friend! We enjoyed so many wonderful day's working together and taking trips with Avon, where we shared the driving. My prayers are with the family. We all lost a Jewel!
