Thoughts and prayers for Bunny, Ray and family. Jeanie was one of the best friends I have had the pleasure of knowing. We had so many laughs and good times. Even had our own Nick names, Motor Mouth and Road Runner, She was a caring, good hearted, beautiful person, now I know she had that crazy red haired Fitzgerald attitude, and temper but that's was what made her so wonderful. She will forever live in my heart and memory. RIP Jeanie, Love you.
