I am always saddened by the death of a good person. It is from this sadness that a feeling of gratitude emerges. I feel honored to have known her Jeanette was an excellent boss and friend , blessed that her passing serves as a reminder to me that my time on this beautiful earth is limited and that I should seize the opportunity I have to forgive, share, explore, and love. I can think of no greater way to honor the deceased than to live this way.

So sorry for your lose. I started to work at the bank same year Jeanette did. It was a small bank then and few employees. Some of us would call Jeanette Momma Jeanette because she was good at handing out advice. However, she also good at listening. Lots of good fun memories. I am so glad I was able to visit with her a few weeks ago and go down memory lane.
