So sorry for your loss. Aunt Jeannie was my favorite. We were blessed to have someone as wonderful as her to help take care of us when we were younger. God bless you, and her in heaven.

My deepest of sympathies to each of you.

I will always remember the kitchen talks with your mom and mine. How I learned so much about our past as we shared photos and discussed philosophical thoughts.

May you be comforted in memories and by all the love of your family and friends.

With love,
