  1. So sorry about Jeanette, Gayla my wife from time to time would call Jeanette and they would have a good laugh and when i would go visit her without Gayla, that would be the first thing she would ask “Where is Gayla” Gayla gave her a pair of PJ’s and she could never thank her enough for them.

  2. JEANETTE was so sweet, loved her so much. I got to see her last Saturday and so glad I did. I heard her say many times, I just love life !!!!! She was always there for others and made each one feel special around her. She was truly a caring and loving person.

    I know she is watching out for all of us. We are spirit and only wear a body for a short time.

    Your cousin Carolyn Ginn

  3. Prayers for all of you at this time. Jeannette was so sweet and always had a smile on her face. She will be missed by so many people. Love to her family.
