Dear Ferrol and Family: There cant be too many things that are more difficult than losing your wife, and mother to your children. Even though Jeanettes passing was expected, there is just a space in your family that is void and life is just never the same.. Thank Heaven for and the kids and grandkids have so many wonderful do I. Even though we havent been able to spend alot of time with Jeannette over the years, the times that we did spend with her were very enjoyable..I loved Jeanettes laugh, it was always authentic of who she was. I remember the times we have come out to visit and she would always go through alot of work (or so it seemed) to make us wonderful meals...I know she was an excellent cook, but her meals were always unforgettable! I know I would always leave your home with more of her wonderful recipes! She always made us feel very comfortable and welcome in your home. I know she was a wonderful mother and an amazing partner in life for you Ferrol, stories that you have told me of how efficient she was in so many different areas of her life, your children are a shining example of the love and great example she was to them. I pray that the following weeks and months will be filled with the wonderful memories you have of Jeanette and that they will bring you much joy and peace..we love you all very much! Linda and Greg

In Remembrance of a lovely woman, a friend and inspiration. Jeanette will always be a guiding light for me and a shining example of what a woman should be: as a mother, a sister in faith and a wife.
