So sorry that I was not able to attend the visitation and funeral for Jeanette. I have known her most of my life. Her sister Maxine was married to my cousin Quinn Bates. Jeanette was a beautiful and gracious person. I always admired her and respected her. I know she will be missed by so many people. My prayers are with you, her family, Sharon, Terry Jo and her grandchildren. May God cover each one of you and be with you in your time of loss. He truly is your strength in such a time as this. Love you in Jesus Christ.
