I sure am sorry that Aunt Jenny has passed away I thoroughly enjoyed my last two visits with her. Always the same sweet smiling and loving Aunt that I remember so fondly growing up. My grandson enjoyed talking to her just as much as my husband and I did, we were looking forward to visiting with her again then There was COVID and we never got the chance.
Aunt Jenny will forever be in my heart and mind I am praying for the family and I love you all💜

Loved my granny. Every time I left her house I left with a full stomach and fuller heart. She wasn’t the granny I knew for the past few years, but she was still as sweet as ever. The memories I had with her will last a lifetime. She is now at peace with Jesus and we will see her again. She also raised a really good son who I get to have as my dad. Rest peacefully with Jesus, sweet Granny.
