I have always enjoyed my relationship with Aunt Jeaninne and feel grateful that she is now at rest. Knowing she had a few health issues in her last few years brings some comfort to knowing that she has now joined Uncle Art in heaven and no longer has to fight for her health. She was s pleasure to know and spend time in the 20+ years I knew her.
