I want to share our deepest sympathy to Jayson, Jennifer, Sabrina, Kiersten and all the family. Jeaney was always a joy to be around. She always greeted us with a smile and always treated us with kindness. God’s second commandment is to love others, and she did that well! Just two weeks before she passed while visiting Jeaney she told each of us that she loved us and asked for hugs. I know she was feeling poorly but still managed to show love and kindness. How amazing would this world be if we had more of that! We will miss Jeaney very much and will always remember her for her love and kindness! Our prayers go out to all the family! God Bless!
Love Patrick, Cheryl, Zach and Luke
