My dear friend it was truly a blessing from God that we came into each other lives. I will always cherish the memories that we had. I’m going to miss our Saturday morning coffee get together’s. Even when you were going through your treatment you still found time for those who was dear to you. And I’m so glad to be one of those who was. I love you Jeanne..rest now in your beautiful home.

Love

Jeanne was very special to me she was not only my sister-in-law some people would say ex because she is no longer married to my brother but she is still my sister I love her so much and am so thankful to have her in my life I was the blessed one I was in her wedding and she was in my wedding plus she introduced me to my husband. She was never a selfish person she always thought of others before herself. It broke my heart when I was told she passed now I know I have another Angel watching over us. Jeanne spread your wings and fly high because you deserve it. We love and miss you💗💗💗
