We are so sorry for your great loss. Jannie had a heart of gold & loved her family so much. She always had such kind words and a wonderful, grateful attitude toward life. She missed her dear Charles and spoke of him in every conversation. I smile when I think that she is reunited with him. Charles & Jannie were dear friends with my parents from their 37th Engineers Reunion days. We were fortunate enough to be with them and renew those golden friendships...such brotherly love. I have some fine pictures to remind me of their gatherings. Perhaps Charles & Jannie and my parents, Calvin & Minnie Gibson are together again in Heaven. God bless you & embrace you in the days ahead.
