My Aunt Jeanette was a very special person. Any time I was with her I had a smile on my face. She had the funniest stories about things her and my Uncle Bob did when they were younger. They both had an amazing sense of humor. Her family meant everything to her and so did her faith in the Lord. She is back with my Uncle Bob now and her sisters and brother. She will be missed by everyone who knew her!
“ I miss you and love you very much Aunt Jeanette”,
Your niece, Cathy
