Alisha I have known you & your family for so many years. I send y'all my deepest condolences. Your mom was a very special lady. When I met y'all and went to work for her she was more than a boss and all of you immediately became my friends. She was beautiful person with a beautiful soul. I will miss her & if you ever need to talk or anything know I'm here. You, Matt, & Jamie are in my thoughts and prayers.

Jeannette was my mom during the critical years she was in my life. I learned that being a mom didn't have to mean there was a blood relation. She taught me so much when a girl needs her mom the most. She gave me a brother and two sisters that I desperately wanted as I was an only child. We formed a relationship that lasted the rest of her life. I never doubted how much she loved me. I just hope I was able to convey how much I loved her before she was gone. Thank you Alisha, Matt and Jamie for sharing her with me.

I have been so blessed to know and love sweet Jeanette. She loved to talk about her family. Every time I made a visit she would share pictures and wonderful stories. I know she loved going to the beach with them, too, and made it happen even during her illness. Her family truly was her pride, love and joy. And she inspired me with her unending faith. I know Jesus was waiting for her with open arms. Her faith shined through during her illness. She was always the first person to help others in our support group, offering a kind word or helpful suggestion. I will miss her so much and will hold her precious friendship in my heart.
