Jeanne was a real mentor to me. In fact, without her help and guidance I would never have gone to law school. She encouraged and helped me during my early professional career, and I will always remember. I enjoyed working with her and owe quite a bit to her. She will be missed.

My grandmother, Mary Smith asked that I send her heartfelt condolences to the family. She had the privilege of working with Mrs. Bodish. When we read of her passing , she talked of what an intelligent and remarkable woman that she was. "She was a real asset to the State of Tennessee."
Peace and Blessings, Rhonda West
