Jean and Glenn came to stay with me for about four months while Jeepie worked on her bathroom. I really enjoyed having my sister here with me, when she left I cried. We stayed in touch, calling each other every day. I wish we would have had more time together. I will love and miss you until I see you again. God bless you sis.

I'm glad I got a chance to know Aunt Jeannie better this past year while Jeepie was working on her bathroom. I really enjoyed listening to her tell stories of her younger days. I thought Aunt Marie was the wild one, but I found out Jeannie had a little bit of a wild side in her too. I guess I should have known that by her personality. Jeannie was a very sweet and loving woman. I'm also glad she and Mae got to spend time together and reconnect as sisters while she and Glen stayed with Mae. It was so cute to see them sitting at the kitchen table in their nightgowns and robes playing dominoes. I will cherish those memories and I'm sure Mae will too. I will miss Aunt Jeannie, but I thank the Lord that she is no longer in pain.
