I specifically wanted to reach out to Jeanne's daughter....Bonnie Daughterty. I just found out today about your mother's home going. My family in Kokomo saw the obituary and send me a copy. Your mother was such a wonderful person. God had your parents at the right place and time to guide me to the mission field. They were that encouraging, godly influence. We will miss her prayers because I know she prayed for us and the work in Bolivia. We pray God will be your great comfort in this time of sorrow and loss. You were most blessed to have her as your mother. Looking forward to seeing her again but next time it will be in Heaven.
