Dear Jean, Andy and family,
My heart goes out to you all at this time of loss. One thing I have learned is that no matter how old we get or “Mom” is when that day comes it’s difficult. We learn to deal in time, I find quiet Times helps.
I can’t help but think back to those times when we were kids, Clune, Palmer get together’s we’re great! Your Mom and Grace were such good friends, two of a kind with an abundance of Love, now they are reunited together again.
The heart maybe broken but it will heal with fond loving memories .
Love Pat

Dear Jeanne and Andy,
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Mrs. Palmer. I first met her 39 years ago at Danceworks of Rochester. She was such a delightful, classy lady that all the dancers loved. She loved us like a grandmother loved her grandchildren. We were blessed to know her. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family in this difficult time. May you find peace in time. She is now with her Maker, whom she loved so much. May your hearts be comforted.
Love, Tracy (Parnella) Gardner

Dear Jeanne and Andy,
So sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. She was such a great woman and over the years touched many people with her love and compassion.
There were a number of times when I was a teenager, when she would somehow sense that I might need to talk. I don't know how she did it - but she would always manage to find a safe environment for me to express what was happening. She had great listening skills that would quickly lift my spirit and help me see the world in a brighter light.
Please know that I am sending you love and prayers during this difficult time.

I met Jeanne in first grade at St Helen’s. I asked her to be my friend and the rest is history! I loved going over to her house. She had a swimming pool and a screened in porch! Sleepovers at Mrs. Palmers consisted off the best junk food ( snickers were Jeanne and my favorite). When there was a group of us I was usually the one who would stay up and be the loudest! Mrs. Palmer would yell down to me to go to sleep!! Even then she always made me feel welcome! You will be missed ! Much love, Meg

I remember chatting with Martha at our annual cousins Buffalo Bills weekend. We would gather at Jeanne and Andy's home sharing pizza, wings, veggies, desserts, and great conversation. Martha was always so nice and a great conversationalist. You certainly will be missed my dear. RIP Martha. I know Yolanda has met you in Paradise already.
